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

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.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 18, 2005
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 it’s 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 I’ll try it again when I find it on the shelf!

1FastSTi (3340) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Thanks Secret Santa! Pours to a thick frothy white head atop a hazy amber body. Nice lacing. The aroma is resin and lemongrass and something floral but strange. The flavor is lemongrass, caramel, strange yet good floral hops. The palate is fresh and not overly oily. Smooth, medium-light, chewy body.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2005
(Draught - Toronado) Nice amber with a small white head. Lovely pine hops aroma. Abundants hops flavor, but enough malt to balance.

joergen (21334) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2005
Bottled. Clear amber coloured with an off white head. Aroma of hops, pine needles and caramel. Flavour of pine needles, hops, fruits and spices.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
GABF ’05. Clear amber body under a thin white head. PNW hop nose. Big, hoppy flavor: resinous pine sap plus grapefruit flesh. Very fresh tasting. Pretty normal caramel backing but the freshness and zipiness make this a winner.

MIBRomeo (2565) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Golden color white head great lacing. Hoppy aroma grapefruit some lemon grass and very light carmel. Palate is lightly creamy but not big. Flavor is even bitter citrus and grass some lemon rind and carmel. Could be better but pretty good.. a bit small.
