COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At the height of the heat in the heart of the summer, we felt that the only cure was a raging mouthful of fresh hops and malt. Caution: May remove enamel from teeth. This is Lagunitas IPA pumped up by about 30%!
IBU: 72.41

Now this is an IPA ! Thin head on a orange body. Obvious hoppy flavour, a bbit sweet, interesting fruity hints, including some lemon, quite a beer !

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2006
Bottle. Pours orange with some reddish hues. More of a floral hop profile with the standard pine and citrus notes in the background. Balanced nicely. Good double but by no means huge.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
Pours a hazy deep orange color with a nice amount of foamy white head. Aroma is very hoppy: slight pine and honey maple, grapefruit, and kiwi. Flavor is kinda syrupy, sweet and heavy on the palate, piney and very citric, warming finish. Overall, very very enjoyable.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 22, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 Bottled. Clear, light amber solor with a small-med offwhite head. Body is sparkling, lace is in sheets and rings...beautiful. Mouth is medium with lots of soft, creamy carb giving it a full feel. Lightly dry finish. Some syrupy and watery characters. Aroma is fruity and sweet with noticeable pollen. Light honey, floral, touch of white bread, peachy for fruit. Flavor is honeycomb, brown sugar, pollen, touch of honey, pine, grapefruit, some flavor that tastes like a fruity alcohol left in a wooden barrel until it went sour. Fruitiness is peach/apricot. Warmth is felt rather than tasted--alcohol is invisible. This stuff is well rounded and developed--as a woman, the voluptuous, developed version of the girl--version of the regular IPA. Very drinkable--sessionable even, although it’s a bit high ABV...but so what?

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - APR 18, 2006
Grapefruity/pine aroma. Taste is a little soapy, though has a nice amount of hopping. No malts to be found. Typical West Coast IIPA though doesn’t have quite enough of the major hops to be top-notch.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pine, bready caramel, fairly bright and fresh with some grapefruit and mango notes. Orange with a tall, white head. Sweet, chewy toasted caramel witha nice spruce and fruity orange and flowery rose flavor. Not very bitter. Medium-full body, oily texture. Thanks to Brigadier for sharing.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 16, 2006
12oz. bottle. Deep golden color with a medium sized white head. Pine, resin, lysol aromatics. Acrid/floral and fruity/resinous hop flavors over fairly sweet malt. Some alcohol heat and a chemical spiciness in the finish with a lasting bitterness. Mouthfeel is heavy medium, fairly dry.

Bottle. White creamy head. Unclear amber. Aroma of oranges and hops. Lovely hops flavor.
