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

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle sampled from the Mad Indian collection, cheers bro. Pours with an orange copperish beautiful color, with a large off white head. Aroma of hops, pine, and sweet malts. The flavor is well blended, sweet, bitter, citrus, and slight trace of caramel. Decent body, alcohol is masked well. Good brew.

EithCubes (5618) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2006
Worthy Bomber. Super, strong citrus and hops nose, sweet and orangey. Clear orange pour with a foamy beige head. Sticky and bitter, loads of hops and piney resin. Lots of citrus with a touch of biscuit. Fullish mf, dry and resinous hoppy aftertaste, warms long into the night. Nice!

Thanks to Ramenen. Bottle: True IPA but a bit one dimensional, alcohol level well hidden. Nice specimen but not best in its class.

Tried it after Goose Island Double IPA. Felt a bit flat, and too bitter at the end. Lacked more flavors, you could only taste the hops.

Bottled. Shared with Stegosaurus. Orange/copper pour with nice white head. Hop and pine aromoa instantly punch you in the face. The first milli second of taste is strong over bearing hops but it instantly mellows out to a more enjoyable balance. Body was a little thin but I enjoyed this brew alot.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Copper body, off-white head, PNW hop nose. Well-balanced IPA. Why does the brewer think this is some how "maximal"; it is hardly exceptional in its gravity, IBUs or ABV! Nice beer, though.

Bottle. So, it almost 8.am and I just finished writing my 5th semester project, which is to be handed in at 1.pm today, after an all-night effort. What better way to celebrate for a hophead like myself than with my very first double IPA?! Pours a hazy orange-amber with a nice, but diminishing off-white/yellowish head. Some lacing. Soft hoppy and malty aroma. Notes of rye. Flavour is bitter hoppy and malty. A bit candy-like. Licorice bitterness in the finish. Nice body. This was nice, but I had hoped for more – especially bitterness-wise. 20-12-06.

Boutip (5898) - 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 (606) - 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 (1262) - 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.
