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

22oz bomber. This pours a hazy amber orange color with a good sized off-white head that dropped down to a coat of bubbles after a few sips. It left good lacing around the glass as it was consumed. Hops fill the nose of this one as citrus and floral hops pretty much take over the smell. Notes of malt sweetness can also be detected through the hoppiness. The taste is lead with a bit of a sharp bitterness that is balanced of by the malty sweetness soon after. Notes of citrus fruits can be detected and there are also slight traces of alcohol. Mouthfeel is very full and creamy and it is very drinkable. Not as bitter and hoppy as most DIPA’s but a good and balanced beer none the less. Definitely give this one a shot.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2004
Hazy orange beer with a foamy off-white head. Nice complex aroma of flower hop, fruit and toffee. Flavor is nice with lots of fruit, oranges, flower and bitter hops and a long lasting finish with hints of citrus and a tone of alcohol. Yummi!

Ungstrup (29367) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2004
An unclear orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and grassy. The flavor is sweet hoppy with a dry hoppy end. Quite simple, but nice.

omhper (19435) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2004 Bottled. Orange-amber, big fluffy head. Orangey nose. Sweet and boldly malty with soft, but syrupy and fatty mouthfeel. Like sweetened, concentrated orange juice, but with very bitter finish. Too sticky.

Slightly cloudy honey color - smells like sweet hops. Decent head- strong initial taste of hops and slightly bitter. Decent IPA

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
Not as hoppy as I hoped. However, it is a good beer. Lacks more of everything. The balance is good between the ingredients. We just want more of it all. A beer for the masses!

madsberg (10241) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2004
Bottled: Golden coloured. Light beige head. Hops, sugar and herbs in the aroma. Flaovur is fruity, hoppy and has light spices. Is nicely bitter in the end. Lacks a little power in aroma and flavour to live up to some of the greats of the style.

kungus (15) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 17, 2004
Delicious, slightly creamy texture. The malt and hops blend nicely at the middle and end to form a very pleasant finish. Somewhat yeasty, hops definately linger. I could (and will) drink a lot of this! 22oz for just $ 3.19

Sven (229) - Lancaster, California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Hazy copper colour with a nice light beige head. Aroma of malt and alcohol with a sharp pine scent. Flavor reveals the similar qualities to the aroma, just a bit more subdued, the malts show up much more in the flavor. Lingering hop flavor. Tasty.
