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

i imagine this would have been better on tap. amber, aroma was more subdued than expected and quite citric. a little flat, peach nectar texture, hint of white grape, finish of aluminium roofing

This IPA is just fantastic. A mouthful of hops in every sip. Perfect amber-caramel color...and those little yeasties floating around....awesome! The finish sits around and just lets you enjoy it. 72 IBU...gotta love that.

Cloudy, amber orange appearance that threw off a lot of sediment. Aroma was dominated by citrusy, resinous hops as was the taste. The small malt presence added a bit of a caramel flavor for a short while, but then was overwhelmed by the hoppiess. Full-bodied wih a biting, bitter finish.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 28, 2004
This one pours amber to orange with a medium creamy white head. Leaves quite good lacing in the glass. Aroma is very fresh, good piney hops, citrus and a nice malt background. Flavor is very full on the hop profile, very refreshing, nice malts and a good alcohol burn. The end is finished with a nice earthy bitterness. Very full bodied and very drinkable.

Beaver (1263) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2004
The Maximus pours a cloudy copper-orange with some big floaties in it (tons in the second half of the bomber pour). It has a big pillowy off-white head that has great retention and lacing.

Its aroma is piney, floral hops with some citrus notes and some light malt. Not as strong smelling as I would expect.

Its flavor is strong on the hops (spicy, piney and resiny) with a pretty strong bitter taste throughout. It has some sweet and citrusy malt initially. At first the hops dominated, then the sweetness became a little cloying, but as it warmed it balanced out fairly nicely. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than I expected, with a sticky lingering bitterness.

Overall, this is a nice solid DIPA.

hop smell is very powerful, i can smell it across the table from me.. pours out amber colored with a thick and creamy looking tan colored head. smells floral hoppy and has a hint of pine. taste is good, very good mouthfeel and easy to drink. has a good lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. a good iipa, but i cant wait for my yulesmith and great divide to get here!

egajdzis (5248) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Pours a copper color with a small head and a fair amount of lace. Aroma of citrus and pine. Sweet and sticky hops, caramel, and a fair amount of alcohol here. Tastes like hop oil. It’s like a super dank bud.

bb (6715) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 4, 2004
Bottle. Golden amber beer with a decent white head. Citrus and pine aroma. Big pine/grapefruit flavor. Lingering bitterness. Malt is there, but the bodu is slightly lighter that many other beers of this type. Nice hop tingling.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2004
Nice red/orange body. Small fizzy almost white head. Aroma is very pleasing, yet light. Seems like sweaty subdued hops that give way to a nice caramel malt. Taste is a sour cascade type of thing. Pleasing mouthfeel, and overall very good, but flavor is slightly lacking.
