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%!

Pours a very clear orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma is malty, with a touch of floral hops, and loads of citrus hops - some grapefruit, sweet (mandarin) orange, apricot. The flavor is more of the same - amazing fresh citrus and hop taste, sweet malts than balance the hops quite well, and hints of caramel and honey on the middle of the tongue from those sweet malts. The finish is bitter, grapefruity, and somewhat dry with a long, cloying, hoppy after-taste. The mouthfeel is very nice - smooth and velvety. The carbonation is just right - it isn’t sharp on the tongue, but does present itself by subtly tickling the middle and back of the tongue. A rather good IPA.

Pour is orange with a small white head that thined out to large bubbles. Aroma is a nice helping of pine/citrus hops. Very clean and refreshing. Flavor is also a very nice crisp hop with a malty biscutness. Looks great smells better and taste even better. No real alcohol presence but I know its there. Pretty darn good beer.

blueduk (118) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2006
Pours deep red-orange with some pink highlights. Small, diminishing cream-colored head. The aroma is promising with lots of fir-tree hops and a fair amount of balancing caramel maltiness. The nose also picks up definite orange presence and suggestions of a perfume that I might as well call papaya. The flavor profile is uncomplicated: bitter. There’s a little acidity, some halfhearted attempt at balancing sweetness, but not much. Just bitter. And some alcohol. I think the palate’s a bit on the thin side and there’s definitely some metallic tinge to the finish, which is fine. I’ve had a lot of this style lately and this one doesn’t hold muster. Seems nice up front, but doesn’t back it up in the mouth.

bager (2120) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2006
Bottled. Golden coloured with a rather large head. A bit malty and very hoppy. Slightly perfumed but alltogether a pretty good body. Hints of pines and soap.

wxman (1747) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2006
Pours a pale amber with a marginal fluffy white head. Aroma dominated by floral hops. Smooth, clean, crisp and hoppy taste. Sweet maltiness and citrus notes come through as well. Well balanced; not too much alcohol noted. Very good.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2006
Orange-amber in colour, creamy beige tinged head, great lacing with about 1cm of sediment in the bottom of my glass. The aroma is of piney hops, caramel malts, some light alcohol, orange and grapefruit. The flavour is quite piney, lots of caramel sweetness, some orange citrus, earthy. Thick and chewy mouthfeel, medium body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes long with some alcohol warmth and lots of hops. Pretty good, I was surprised by the large amount of sediment.

650ml bottle from <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york target=blank>Premier Gourmet in Buffalo, New York. No Best Before date.

pintbypint (3328) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 4, 2006
650ml brown bottle. Deep gold colour, full thick, white head, lots of sticky clinging foam. At first pine jumps out in the aroma, then lighter citrus notes, lemon and grapefruit, malt is barely there. Slight initial fruiiness, sweet orange, light caramel malt sweetness in the middle, finishes with abundant pine/grapefruit hop flavours, bittereness is moderate in intensity but long lasting. Medium creamy body, cabonation is light and soft. Alcohol is not noticable at all. This was my first Imperial/Double IPA, it was not quite as bold as I was expecting, but I was not disappointed. Rather I found it strong, hoppy and flavourful without being imposing. Will be returning to this beer often.
