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%!

Excellent sweet citrus smell followed by a sweet hoppy DIPA taste. This is a fantastic Imperial. I’ve had tons of this stuff and never had a bad one either.

Lothore (451) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours an clear orange hue with a nice, big 2 finger off white head that leaves a ton of lacing. S- Smell is predominately floral, piney hops and a bit of indistinct lighter fruit notes. T- Taste is much sweeter than I was expecting, peach, caramel, floral character followed by a very balanced hop bitterness. M- Medium body and carbonation. D- This was an extremely drinkable ipa and for the price it’s hard to beat. Not a huge DIPA and very balanced.

Grym öl! Kopparfärgad, fräsch. Aromatisk, inte särskilt besk. Små inslag av citrus och karamell!

Pours a hazy light amber color with particulate matter swirling about. A thick, nearly white head with a lot lacing sits atop the beer. Strong aroma of orange and grapefruit with pine in the background. Flavor is initially sweeter than expected with bubblegum and candied fruit leading the way for the tart and tangy hops to kick in. Finish is strong, bitter, and dry with more grapefruit and citrus on the end. Overall a Good balance of malt and hops with a more complex flavor than I expected. It's not just a hops bomb. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful example of an IPA. Full of fruity and citrus hops. Full of freshness. Full of being full and deep. Well balanced, easy to drink and still real class.

12oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Orange hue, hazy clarity with mostly diminishing white head. Spotty lacing. Moderate citrus hop, some sweet fruit, floral aroma on the nose. Moderate bitter grapefruit taste up front with a floral finish. As it warmsthe alcohol starts to come out more.

McTapps (2965) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle from trade with Cunningham - many thanks! The beer pours out in a light hazy amber colour with steady head and medium to crisp body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops and herbs. Taste of aromatic hops, herbs, spruce, oak, spices and citrus. Very fresh and quaffable finish. Enjoyed it a lot - great IPA.

Bottle from Tom Thumb. Pours a rich copper colour with a medium white head. The aromas are pine, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a medium body and good carbonation. Great beer! Cheers!

BOD 345/13. Pours a clear amber with a massive head and lacing that retains well. The nose is a blend of sweet citrus (orange and mango) coupled with notes of grapefruit and pine over a sweet caramel background. Almost full bodied with a rich creamy texture. The carbonation level is normal with a touch of effervescence on the finish. The complex, yet balanced, flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with a tart burst of citrus hop flavor like the nose, flows to a mild sweet citric bitterness which recedes into a caramel sweetness. The finish is smooth with a burst of sweetness and lingering light tart bitterness. A complex brewer’s masterpiece of balance, flavor and bitterness.

olio (5261) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
355 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina. BBE 04.10.2014.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of mild hops, resin, pine needles, grass, citric fruits and some caramel. Flavor is somewhat sweet with fruits and caramels, oily and resinous hops with wooden dry finish. Decent but a bit disappointing.
