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%!

Keg at the hanging bat. Pours clear golden amber, thin white head. Hop heavy resin aromas, pine too. Taste is bitter, sticky, boozy. Oily texture, bitter finish. Good, but not their best.

jamestulloch (1644) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 Keg at The Hanging Bat. Clear golden body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of pine, honey and orange. Flavour of pine needles, boozy tangerine and a faint peppery finish. Very bitter and hoppy. Medium body with an oily, almost chewy texture. Soft fizz. This brewery knows how to hop an IPA/DIPA.

Obfuscate (133) - Minneapolis, - NOV 10, 2014
Really nice smell and color but the taste didn’t live up for me. Getting too much of the alcohol for a 8.2% and the sweetness and bitterness don’t balance well for me.

neongolden (598) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
(350ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours clear medium amber with a moderate bubbly white head that recedes to a small cap with lace. Aroma has a lot of light caramel malt and decent amount of hops, mango, pine, dried stone fruit, hint of alcohol. On the palate, light slightly bready caramel malt core is fairly prominent, apricot, bit herbal, vague tropical notes. More pine resin and bitterness comes from the middle into the finish, honeyish malt sweetness and a bit of grain showing up along with some fruit lingering. Bitterness is pretty average for a DIPA, medium bodied, moderate sharp carbonation, hint of alcohol heat. This seems to have too much malt character (without complexity) relative to hops for me, and the hops are probably faded too. Not bad, but not best of style either.

FknClownshoes (24) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2014
Golden honey/red crystal. Smells quite floral with some tropical (mango) fruit and the malts. Not overly hopped up aromas, the maltiness really comes through on the nose. Loads of hoppy bitterness at the front with some slight sweetness from the caramel like malts, some pine resin. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Seems like there is too much malt and not enough hops but there is a sticky bitterness that persists making it very worthwhile.

laakus (37) - Nossebro, - NOV 1, 2014
Very hoppy and fresh aroma. Overall a nice DIPA although a bit too sweet for what I prefer a double IPA to be.

On tap. Golden amber with fluffy one finger head. Citrus and pine aroma. Really good, smooth taste of tropical citrus. This is really really good.

Hopmaestro (252) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2014
This is pure liquid gold. The aroma sends hoppy pine notes straight into your cerebral cortex, and fizzy needles stings your eyes like cactus spines causing your taste buds cringe and pull back into shelter before even tasting it. And the taste, a battle squadron of hops carried by a perfect sweet malt body, slowly leaks out like freon into the ozone layer, fighting down your defenses and leaving you with a smile on your face. A strong, well balanced DIPA and after having a couple of these, you look almost handsome.

McNeillR (1391) - SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2014
Hazy golden orange. Light filmy head, soft ring and lacing. Punchy boozenut nose, dried wood varnish with apricots stuck to it. Initial taste is coppery, sweet amber and oddly honeycomb creamy. Oddly spicy, like uncooked reformed beef later on. Sticky and busy carbonation, unlike the Hop Stoopid before, and finishes a lot neater. Warming spice, tea like bitterness and a dessert wine cleansing fade. Not terrible by all means but perhaps not helped by its predecessor being so daisy cutter hop fresh.

Keg, Hanging Bat
