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

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2003

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2003
Light brown with a quick desipating white head. Smells hoppy and perfumy. Taste hoppy and tangy. Mouthfeel is like a barleywine. Semi-drying.

3fourths (7878) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 27, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 Caramel, peaches, and malt aromas. Taste of maple, sugar, with a peachy hop flavor at the end. This one is missing a strong fruity side to balance the hop bitterness, though it is quite nice, and is a change from the more overpowering IPAs.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 27, 2003
Godbless all the great brewers who have followed suit in making these great IPAs,... whatever they want to call 'em. (Double, Imperial, whatever) This one pours a deep straw color with a beautiful long-lasting rocky head. Aromas of lemon-grass and oh my,.. a lot of hops. In the words of the great Tommy Chong, "It kinda grabs you by the poopoo." Well balanced but man those malts must look like Michael Spinks after the fight with Iron Mike.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2003
A clear copper color and a medium sized rocky head that quickly dissapated. A strong hop aroma with some citrus and hints of pine and caramel. The flavor is hopped, but not overly, with piney notes, grass and citrus acidity. Good bitterness with a dry finish. Solid.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 15/20
JorisPPattyn (7809) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 22, 2003
Bright pink-orange. Yellowish, thick head, disappearing. Citrussy nose, noble hops. Very hoppy, lemony taste. Outspoken hopbitter. Slightly harsh finish going into resinous. Well bodied. Good carbonation, but CO2 can’t win from the hops. Aftertaste are hops, resinous again. Very IPA. Mind you, it could grow on me.

jsquire (3398) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2003
Deep golden yellow with a great, lasting white head and a fresh, pine spicey nose. Sharp hop bitterness like candied grapefruit rind, over top of a smooth caramel sweetness. Very good beer.

kyzr (1147) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - MAR 14, 2003
Great aroma of hops and citrus. Good deep copper thick color with a nice head. Nice balance of malt at first, then the hops hit you over the head with a strong finish.

hophound (23) - Surprise, Arizona, USA - MAR 9, 2003
Pours with a hazy amber color. good head retention. As you would expect the flavor of this beer was totaly dominated by the hops. A good beer although I would like a little more balance. If you are a Hop Head this beer is for you.
