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%!

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Smells of nutmeg, homemade chicken soup, resin, and caramel. Tastes malty....nutmeg notes (lots in the aftertaste), also some sourness in the swallow. Spicy, not hoppy at all. Strange.

Steady IIPA, pour was a very pretty golden copper color, with a mild white head. Nose was very piney, with some citrus and something I cannot determine yet. Taste is quite bitter loaded with hops, and finished off with a descent malt touch.

piscator34 (2178) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 21, 2005
Dark copper in colour with aromas of Cascade and grassy hops. The flavors are mellow for an IIPA, medium bitterness with a whole lot of syrupy malt. The finish is powder dry and has a biscuit quality (which I’ve experienced with some Irish ales). I liked that quality, but I could see others not appreciating it. This is kind of a baby-step IIPA, but still a quality beer.

IndianaRed (3048) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear copper color with a modest but fine and creamy off-white head. This settles out fairly quickly leaving that thin white ring that produces a thin, sheet of lacing. The aromas are mainly a soft pale grain maltiness and a hopps that is not to sharp of edgy. Flavor is a bit sweet, honey maybe, and again the hops, while prominant are not overly bitter. Very smooth and fairly heavy feel for the style. Pleasantly bitter and slightly chalky aftertaste.

A strong hoppy opening within the light amber brew. Fairly balanced through the middle but a bit bitter on the finish.

pours light amber with a white head. aroma is sub par.. tastes piney, citrusy, pretty much like a regular IPA but a little stronger. I can think of many other ipa’s i’d rather have, but this is still pretty good. far from the "raging mouthfull of hops" that it claims

ElGaucho (2319) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Aroma is not pleasant. I would probably prefer to take a whiff of a dirty sock. Clear copper in color. Sparse, slow visible carbonation. Excellent lace, but small head. Interesting flavor. Sweet, a little cloying with a solid alcohol profile. Nice overall, but would be hard to drink in quantity due to the cloying quality. A big beer. Hints of being really good, but doesn’t quite cut it.

Pours Golden orange color with nice head that stick to the edge of the glass. Hoppy Aroma. Taste of caramel and alcool rounded with citrus hops. Bitterness ok but not as powerfull as other double IPA I have tasted. Overall it is well balance and pleasent to drink.

Very nice, in fact, it seemed much better than the last time i tried it. Not the most bitter beers in the world, it actually had pretty good balance despite the name. Highlly recomended!
