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

Mostly diminishing, creamy, off-white head. Extremely hazy amber/brown color which I canít see through even when put up to light. Aroma could be stronger for such a big beer. I detect a small amount of piney hops which is accompanied by a medium maltiness, and a hint of orange citrus. The flavor has a light orange citrus sweetness. The bitterness is very strong, which I very much like, but doesnít have that piney bite which makes it well balanced. Body is more thick than watery, but not as thick as I would prefer. Overall, a execelent IPA, but I would call it a one and a half IPA.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2005
(Bottle 65 cl) Beautiful, clear amber with a creamy, thick head leaving some lacework. Distinct aroma hops in the nose. Flavour of sweet caramel malt with a very solid, hoppy finish. A very typical Double IPA with a routinely touch. 221005

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
22 oz bomber. Golden orange beer, thick, fluffy tan head and sticky lace. Hoppy aroma, fresh, lightly grassy, moderate resinousness and a massive sweet citrusy aroma. Orange and a bit of juiciness. Some pale malt aroma backs up all of the hops, but doesnít interfere with it. Flavour is quite a bit sweeter than the aroma would suggest. Light caramel, cookie dough and biscuity malts underneath a juicy citrus hop flavour. Moderate bitterness up front but presents a lingering bitter palate. Nice, easy-drinking beer.

Bottle. Light hazy amber colour with a medium tan head. Sweet very floral, fruity, hoppy aroma and a sweet very hoppy, bitter taste. Medium body and a sweet bitter dry finish.

fluids (364) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Pine and citrus aroma (not as much citrus as other offerings - kind of muffled.) The taste has the grapefruit rind. More rind then grapefruit so it has a bitter component fue to extra hops (I guess). Dry but well balanced not too hoppy for an IPA above average.

Sampled @ GABF- Pours a clear golden color, small white head. Aroma is citrusy, lemons and such fruit. Flavor is somewhat thin, astringent body with pine needles and light fruit notes. A slightly floral dry finish.

Draft at The Ginger Man, NY. Clear amber color with a moderate white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good hoppy and pine aroma. Medium body with a dry texture. Full well balanced flavor with a moderate bitter finsh of good duration.

This IPA is definitely different, as someone suggested, from the offerings of Stone. But in itís own way this one is just as good! It smells sweet, piney and grassy or citrusy. Not a lot of head when poured, but what is there lingers on and on. The color is pretty typical, though a bit more amber and hazy than some. The taste is initially sweet, then hoppy, bitter, and resinous or piney, whichever adjective one prefers. The palate is medium-thick, a bit sticky, but not overpowering. The finish is clean and bitter, with some lingering floral notes. I like it, and Iíll try it again when I find it on the shelf!
