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

An intense IPA. Amber with beige head. Not very impressive visually but the nose was strong hops, grapefruit, alcohol. Great mouthfeel. Rich and thick. Flavor had kick to it. Hops bitterness in a good way. Fruity. Grapefruit juicy. Kick ass IPA.

Nice golden body with nice head and good lacing. The flavor is very balanced. It has a nice hoppines with a good malt background. Very pleasurable beer.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Foggy orange appearance, lacey white head, citrus hops aroma, intense hop flavor, apple, grapefruit, surpisingly sweet, mmmm so bitter, the palate is great, preftect carbonation, malty finish, this is just what i need to simmer down after a 48 hour architecture binge, this beer is heaven compared to what ive just been through and will likely recieve a higher rating because of it

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Bomber. 05.24.04 Honey gold color. Medium head, much lacing. Pretty beer, nice, lingering carbonation. C-hops and sugar on the nose. Lots of sugar, infused honey, sugar. Otherwise, itís a pretty run of the mill IPA, sort of an oily, resiny attempt at 90 Min. Prominent, but not greatly balanced hops make this I2PA less than great.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2004
Bottle. Really dissapointing. Just really tinny, rusty American hops, no length too the flavour. Typical pine/grapefruit.

desurfer (1209) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Golden amber body with a chunky white head. Arome of pineapple and sweet malt, some citrus as well. Flavor is mostly sweet citrusy hops, not very bitter but with a noticeable alcohol tinge. Finishes dry and sweet. Good.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2005 Pours amber with a rocky off-white head. The first glass of the bomber is clear amber while the second glass has a good amount of floaties. Aroma is malty, bready and yeasty. Taste is nicely bitter and sweet with a ton of hops with grapefruit, citrus, vanilla and pine. Chewy, earthy and spicy. Good malt backing. Nice lacing on the glass. Mouthfeel is perfect; full, round and creamy. Good stuff.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 29, 2004
This is an interesting brew. The sediments in the bottle make me froth at the mouth. They taste like little hop sprites. Pours with a giant head. Uncontrollable. Color is light copper amberish. Head dissipates. Smells Florally and piney...mostly piney. Mouthfeel is nice and thick due to the alcohol. As others have noted it looks too pale to be 7.5% but definitely is. Pine tar lays out flat on the back of my tounge, with strangely enough a swiss cheese bitterness. aftertaste is astringent like rubbing alcohol...not that Iíve drunk that before though...right. Good brew. Donít think I could drink more than one in one sitting though. Ruination still dominates. G-rat

This is a solid IPA. Very strong hop character along with some citrus flavor. Wow, large head initially then diminishes with good lacing.

(Bottle) Pours a clear amber color with a small, quickly diminishing head. Has a refreshing aroma of spruce, grapefruit, and orange peel. Creamy palate and a hoppy flavor.
