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%!

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Hogtownharry: Poured a beige/yellow color ale with a medium bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of C-hops is quite powerful with lots of citrus and floral notes. Taste is quite bitter with huge citrus and floral hops with a big grassy feel. Malt is more subdued then I would have liked it with limited caramel. Body is about average with medium carbonation. Good take on the style but it is missing something (malt?) to make it truly great.

mkgrenwel (602) - North Shore, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Pine and pineapple. Slightly peppery and spicy. Sweet malt balances this well. Rather than a balanced beer where both things even each other out, this is a whole lot of hops, but then some good malt to provide contrast (if that makes any sense). Alcohol is a bit low for a double, but the flavor is big enough to justify it.

henrikb (1260) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2006
Hazy orange body, fast away off white head; Spritzy, peachy, malty, nothing special nose; Soft textured body, to little carbonation, bitter sweet body; Medium sized bitter sweet finish, peachy aromas. Not my kind of IPA, unclear and unbalanced.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle from santa: Pours a nice copper color with a nice, slightly off white head. Smell is seems pleasant, some pine, citrus, and maybe some caramel hidden in the back. Taste is piney, with a hint of citrus. In no way is this IPA overpowering. It’s well balanced and very well done.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2006
UPDATED: APR 10, 2009 Not too sweet and undercarbonated like other Impy IPA. Great flavour and dry without any overbearing, unseemly bite. Clearly an IPA but a steadier experince from nose to finish like some of the great dry pale ales are. Great especially give the affordabe price. Only drawback is an odd aftertaste.

ogglethorp (917) - Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours hazy copper color with a big white head that stick around a while. Aroma is floral hops, pine, citrus. Flavor is some malt, grapefruit, pine. Palate is medium bodied, with some stickiness. I would have rated it higher but it’s more of an IPA than IIPA.

pintocb (648) - Darsville, Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2006
Hoppy and malty. Some odd malt flavors. A little too sweet. The hops are nice and hide the alcohol decently.

beerbill (3575) - Laurel, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2006
22 oz. bottle. Pours a coppery orange with a pale yellow-white head that held up quite well. Very nice lacing. Wonderful aroma of pine and grapefruits. These same traits come out in the flavor as well along with some caramel sweetness. Dry, bitter finish but not excessively so. This is a real nice IPA.

22 oz bomber shared with kdrobb2k. Pours a light orange coppery color with a nice white frosting for a head. Aroma is piney hoppy with grapefruit overtones. Flavor is piney as well with grapefruit flavor. Excellent west coast style IPA.

dwyerpg (4917) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 15, 2006
Very dark cloudy orange, not real hoppy aroma. Head is very dry and hoppy. The beer is also excellently dry and hoppy, but smooth in the finish to not kill your taste buds. Great.
