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

Quite dissapointing aroma, it was very light with some solvent and alcohol and a mild hop note. There is little in the way of hops in the flavor as well. On a good note, for such a strong beer this is extremely smooth and balanced beer. It is very drinkable but not the hop bomb I expect from a double IPA.

On tap. Deep orange color with no head when it arrived. Nose is heavy on the hops, bitter citrus and candied orange. Flavor follows with great body. Had this a lot from bottle as well, and it still rates highly. Great IIPA.

A very hoppy armoma of fruit and floral scents greets the nose. The color is a rich dark amber with a tan head. Flavor is strongly of grapefruit and finishes with a decent hoppy bitterness.

A very nice hoppy IIPA. Not too overly agressive but still has some good kick. But, all of the sweet and bitter flavors blend together extremely well for a beer that has a lot going on but still goes down well.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2006 Pour thick cloudy dark amber with a thinwhite head. Big Floral/Hop aroma. Lots of hops in flavor but not overpowering which is nice. A touch of malt but the hops are stronger. Theres a little alcohol bite which is pretty well balanced with the hops. Overall a pretty good IPA. Pretty well balanced and refreshing. Cheers to Lagunitas for this one.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 This is a new beer to me. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange-caramel color with a large soapy light tan head that leaves good lacing. The aroma was tangy with moderate piney hops and fruity hops. The flavor is tangy and sweet with moderate piney and fruity hops and a bit of perfume. Long tangy hoppy finish. Medium body. Tasty.

Rich, coppery amber coloring with practically no head, but a few very large bubbles are coating the surface. Some grapefruit and red pine greets my nostrils, but with a mild manner. An underlying sweetness escapes from beneath the light hops aromas. Texture is actually quite carbonated and far less sticky than expected. The bubbles create a bigger tingling sensation on the tongue than the hops. Slightly sweet, and not nearly as hoppy as expected. The finish comes quickly and a little brash, as a touch of metallic alcohol bites through. Not bad overall; I can see this being a nice, fairly light summertime IPA.

"Poured an amber color with a small head and a little lacing. Aroma was of pine and citrus and could pick out the grapefruit. Flavor was of grapefruit and hops. Light mouthfeel. "

A "baby step IPA" is how soem might describe this. I mispoured this and wound up with sedimnet in the glass, which did not make for a great experience, but I think this is a good one, and I would definitely try it again.

Cherry and citrus aromas are very evident. A nice gold body for this IPA, very good for it’s style. Very minimal white head, even when poured rough. A little bit thin on the taste, but good hops and some orange. Malts are very evident in the ending, which partially negates the bitterness that I have come to expect from IPAs.
