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%!

thebeertourist (5077) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2006
Clear amber with a solid, rocky head. Intense citrus and flowery aromas. Sweet caramel flavours, blending harmoniously with citrus and flowers, eventually ending drier. Medium bodied. A California IPA that manages to be more well-balanced and harmonious than most.

Grapevin Mkt. $4.59 22oz. Yum yum gushing flavors and abundant cascades bring to the front of the nose all that is west-coast wonderful. Caramel and tangerines and medium bodied barley satisfy my five mile thirst. A bargain I’ll seek out again.

AndrewM (126) - Waco (Buckle of the Bible Belt), Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2006
Pours red-orange with a nice fluffy creamy head. Pleasant piney grapefruit aroma. Nice hoppy kick, but drinks pretty smoothly. Decent beer.

jimmack (1223) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - MAR 9, 2006
22oz. bomber. Clear amber color with a small white head. Citrus hop aroma with some sweet toasted malts to balance things out. Flavor was more hop heavy than the aroma. Big citrus hops with a bit of pine also. Some sweet malt in the background.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2006
Amber color. Sweet hop aroma, with some underlying citrus and pine notes. Flavor matches the aroma, a little on the sweet side than what I was expecting. Hoppy finish, but still somewhat on the sweet side. Solid beer, but nothing special.

murawski (160) - USA - MAR 3, 2006
Bottle 22 oz. An excellent IPA. Glowing amber/orange color, slight white head, with a slightly sweet hoppy nose. Not too overpowering, but plenty of that nice bitter hoppy flavor. Overall, an above average IPA, that I would recommend if you can find it.

Krausen (102) - USA - MAR 1, 2006
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.

gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2006
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.

ehhdayton (1188) - USA - FEB 23, 2006
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.

crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 21, 2006
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.
