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%!

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pous a clear medium copper with a one finger white head that fades away rather quickly leaving a thin cap and a little bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. Aroma has the typical Lagunitas tropical fruit character. A touch of pine with a backing of bread and caramel albeit on the light side. Hops really dominate. The passionfruit and pine carried over into the flavor with Tons of tropical fruit up front. This is followed by a little bit of yeasty banana and a flash of ethanol. Bitterness is moderate to high leading to a dry, almost chalky, mouthfeel. Not much malt in the flavor maybe just a touch of bread. The body is a little bit thin which aids drinkability but somewhat subtracts from the overall experience. Overall, this is an ok beer but middle of the road as far as IIPA’s go. The body is a little too dry and this isn’t too much different from their standard IPA. Hop Stoopid is better and I probably won’t seek this one out again.

Bottle from SB. Now it was some time ago I had this one, but it is as I remember a really good IPA. Strongly recommended!

Pours a pretty clear golden amber with a large creamy dull white head and tons of lace. Aroma is resin, pine, resin, tropical fruits, and sweet pale caramel malts. Taste is resin, pine, earthy, tropical fruits, medium-high bitterness, sweet pale malts, caramel maltiness, and a medium dry finish. Really nice balance with the alcohol known but masked as well.

Very hoppy taste balanced with strong taste of malt and alcohol. I love! They know how to brew a good beer I the US after all.

Sweet malt, hints of strawberry, caramel and hop resin. The alcohol is clearly evident but not overpowering. Nicely balanced, enjoyable beer.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with hop resin, bitterness, and some sweetness. Well done DIPA.

You can feel the hops for a long time. No foam. Quite nice but not that special.

Clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet artificial flower. Taste is floral perfume. Better than your mass produced yellow frothy stuff, but I would pass on another. Many better ipas, and many better lagunitas.
