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

Cloudy and honey in colour with a huge head that leaves elegant lacing on the glass. Nose is floral and citrus with some malts. Opens sweet, middle is well balanced progressing to a hoppy bitter aftertaste. Well balanced and drinkable.

Awesome head and even better remaining lace. Pours a nice deep yellow/orange hue. Smells of oranges, dandolines and hops. Taste is very floral with just a bit of sweet malt to balance, finishing with a nice hoppy smack. Mouthfeel is medium with a nice slick oily caress. Very balanced, if not a bit pretentious, but I admire the intent. A very bold, citrusy hop blend. A great American IPA, with a fiesty attitude.

mreeves (275) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2004
A solid IPA. Nice appearance, good lacing on the glass and good carbonation level. Hops dominate, but it's well-balanced. As with most Lagunitas brews, a solid beer for the money and would recommend.

xsketchyx (184) - Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Decent flavor, ultra hoppy. But it seriously looked like coors or something (very yellow, very pale, not hazy at all), had barely any aroma, and felt awfully thin in the mouth. Overall not too terribly impressed, not very balanced.

TheBeerGod (5336) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Poured reddish orange with a medium white head. Aroma is very hoppy and citrusy with orange peel and grapefruit. Also there is a faint pine hint in there. Taste is also dominated by the citrus flavors. It's very hoppy with lighter malt notes. Some bitterness along with more orange round out the finish.

GermanBrews76 (679) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 29, 2004
slow rising tiny bubbles, amber hued golden body. dense, but dissipating white head clung on throughout. fruity, ripe, tart and piney/ resinous hop character. bready and biscuty with floral undertones. Soft, full. sweet and fruity frontdries out giving way to a bitter and fairly alcoholic finish. crackery malts as well

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2004
This beer poured a cloudy orange with a medium white head. I found that much of the yeast remained suspended in the glass. The aroma was obviously of hops and the taste was the same, finishing somewhat dry and wanting for more. This was worth it and I would recommend this brew for anyone looking for a good IPA.

Cobra (1100) - - FEB 26, 2004
22 oz. brown bomber bottle. No freshness date or bottling date noticed. Poured out a brilliant, orangish / copper color, with a small, white head. The head was almost non-existent, but it left a really decent lacing down the sides of the glass. Aromas are kind of vague, let's see what I can pick out of it. Prime pale ale malts are here, along with slight hops in the background. Not much in the way of hops aromas. Maybe I got a stale bottle? Hard to say. Tastes are of malty goodness, and slight hops bitterness. Other than that, there's no real discernable tastes here either. If this beer is 7.5% ABV, it sure hides it well. Unoffensive as far as tastes go, but finishes sweet. Almost cloying in nature. A good IPA, but not a double IPA, at least not to me it isn't. Bonus points for appearance, because of it's absolute clarity.

Mostly translucent amber-orange body with frothy white head. Grapefruit fills the room upon opening. Nice sweet flavor up front. Light carbonation. Syrupy-sticky texture with chalky sour milk finish. Should make my regular rotation judging by how fast I finished it.

acquired from cquiroga. hazy copper color with a nice light beige head. aroma is astringent and sharp with pine. flavor reveals the similar qualities to the aroma, just a bit more subdued, the malts show up much more in the flavor. brown sugar quality to the flavor. the hops linger too, so this beer is damn nice..thanks to cquiroga for this one.
