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%!

I’m a little mixed on this one as it was more mellow than expected. The aroma was not strong with more of the floral essence. Nice amber color with minimal head. Nice smooth palate with a crispness at the end and a nice level of carbonation. This had some fruit off flavors with a hops bitterness that was blended in well but not strong for an imperial.

Theydon_Bois (8276) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Gravity dispense at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pine coated, candied fruit peel, bitter tropicana, grapefruit, tangy orange, ripe citric peel. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, pine, candied fruit peel, sweet licks, mango. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with hop bitterness. Decent, likely better on keg I’m sure, a touch sweet at times but dirnks well for 8%+

Kaatuu snifteriin kullanoranssina ja melko kirkkaana, noin 1,5 sormen paksuisella melko pysyvällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu on hyvää jenkki-DIPAa: sitrusta ja havua löytyy reippaasti, humalapää edellä mennään jo tuoksussa. Makeampaa hedelmää ja kukkaisuuttakin löytyy, karamellin tukemana. Mutta karamelli on aika vähissä, selvästi humalat edellä tullaan. Maussa sama tykitys ei ihan jatku; karamellia on nyt huomattavasti enemmän muodostaen havuisuuden ja pihkaisuuden kanssa hyvän kokonaisuuden. Hiven karheampaa ruohoisuutta ja makeampaa hedelmääkin on mukana. Suutuntuma on alkuun makea, kuivuen loppua kohden humalan nipistelyn lisääntyessä. Hyvä ja tasapainoinen DIPA, josta jäi hieman viimeinen rutistus puuttumaan. Laatu kyllä löytyy.

Excellent transparent pour w/ a retaining white head & plenty of lacing. The aroma is absolutely an enticing citrus hop burst w/ a malt undertone. The flavor is complex yet smooth. There’s a hop presence throughout but the citrus flavoring really makes this easy to drink at over 8%. Delicious & very well done!

Alengrin (1258) - BELGIUM - AUG 22, 2014
West Coast IPA with firm, yellowish white head and warm golden amber colour. Delightfully complex and powerful hops in the nose, some orange, pine resin, tomato, pepper, grass; sweet malty and fruity onset rapidly overpowered by a very long, agressive, spicy, oily, pine needle- and citrus-like hoppiness drying mouth and throat. I can’t get enough of this type of beers and this is one of the best I had so far.

BillWyce (717) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Pours amber color, with a touch of orange and a light haze. 2-finger white head. Aroma is all hops, with both pine and citrus notes. Medium body, mildly oily with a brief finish. Flavor is, again, mostly hops. A mix of pine and citrus notes, but there is a light note of caramel underneath that lingers in the finish.

Spicy, dry grapefruit aroma. Deep, resinous flavor, with grapefruit and a warm frutiness. Very beautiful.

Bomber shared pours a bright golden orange with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of huge citrus, apricots, mangos and possibly orange. The flavor is of the amped up version of their ipa. Damn tasty. Medium malt and plenty of hops.
