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%!

8.2%ABV. IPA. Poured out a deep Amber. 16ºSRM. Nose is sweet over-ripe pineapple. Nose has a round sweetness reminiscent of a port or sherry. Mouthfeel is sudsy. There is adequate carbonation. The palate has roasted malty flavors that are nutty, caramel, toasted cracked barley bread, creme brulee, The palate is very sweet and and sticky, sticky date pudding and molasses come to mind. Hops are pronounced with pine, resin and some nice bitterness, not agressive or hyssop. Finish is medium. Pleasant. Goes on Favorites List!

dutch23mp (310) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2015
The hoppy aroma is perfect and I strongly suggest using a sniffer glass to enjoy this. Very strong on taste but balanced, robust is the perfect word. The appearance when first poured is also perfect with a rich white head on a golden platform only problem is the head dissipates quickly. Taste is perfecto for an imperial IPA just the right amount of bitter hops with a bit of sweetness. Full bodied on the palate with a soft carbonated taste and a long finish. A well crafted beer that would par with a steak or a burger.
