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

Had never heard of Lagunitas, and just picked this up at Green’s. Damn glad I did. Poured to the expected golden orange with thick off-white head that stuck around for the whole glass, and left excellent lacing. Aroma was very hoppy citrus, mostly grapefruit and lemons, and taste was more of the same. Palate was very bitter and dry, but with a hint of sweet malt. I had the bomber, and drank it slowly, so that at the end, I was beginning to feel the effects of the 7.5% alcohol. This was a mosyt excellent beer, and I hope to try more.

Bottle. Good citrus aroma, a decent blend of lemon and lime. Very orangey look with thin head. Good taste with slight alcohol hit. Decently smooth and very drinkabale. Good balance. Pretty good IIPA.

Orange body with a large, light orange head. Flavor is intensely hoppy with a nice hint of sweet caramel malt. Nice, fruity aroma is not overwhelmed by the intense hops experienced in the taste.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2007 it smells frothy, like fresh rain in a hop field, citrus behind. deep gold approaching orange. thin head. the top of my mouth tastes citrus, while the bottom is kind of piney and a little sour. sleek across the tongue. A delicate balance to work a body light as this with the strength of hops and alcohol. & at $2.50 a bomber on sale, where in the ratings does value figure in?

An observation about beer is that fruit flies in the area will quickly appear when a good beer is opened, and this one made them fly in immediately. Pours a large, long lasting, creamy head over a copper colored body. Light doughy malt and pine resin hop aroma. Well balanced flavor with a long dry finish. A good one.

Was pysched that Lagunitas beers finally showed up in Georgia. Kind of a let-down, though. Heavy hop aroma with orange, resin. Creamy head that mostly lasted. Expected much more hoppiness as this is 72 IBU’s. This was more like a West Coast IPA, rather than a DIPA. The palate was surprisingly soft.

Dark tan with a burnt orange glow, crystal clear. Medium white head with find bubbles. A very pretty beer. Spicy, citrus aroma. Full bodied, bitter. Grapefruit, citrus dominate the flavor. Nice malt balance though, some caramel and plum in there. Another winner from Lagunitas at a reasonable price. Here’s to feeling good all the time.

Bomber. Clear caramelly/amber with a short, well-retained cap of white head... some spotty lacing. The aroma found bunches of hops (fresh grapefruit and pine needles primarily)... also some candy corn and caramel backing. Flavor had a lot of bitter pine resin and citrus more as a highlight... sticky caramel backing. Balance felt only ok.. a bit syrupy on the palate at times. Solid beer.

Bomber. Clear orange color with a thick offwhite-cream head, mostly lasting and producing bands of lacing. Aroma of floral, citrus and piney hops with some faint cheesy yeast. Big woody pine and grapefruit rind hop flavor, with a luscious caramel malt foundation. I can understand the comments about oversweetness of the malt, but I think there’s enough hoppiness to make it a fairly good balance in the end. Smooth palate. Lots of hops on the finish, with a resiny aftertaste. Wouldn’t necessarily consider this an imperial, but rather a "Big IPA." Great stuff regardless.

Very nice beer - not sure for a double IPA, however. Caramel malt and light hops in the nose. An exquisite blend of bittersweetness. Nice copper color. Just a little sweet for what I was expecting from a I-IPA. That said, very nice brew.
