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.

Aroma is sweet, piney, and resinous, with hints of garden flowers and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is creamy and sweet throughout, with a slightly bitter finish.

Excellent IIPA. After just having a regular IPA this came on very strong a bitter just like I like them. Lots of fresh hop flavor with just enough malt to balance.

Pours clear dark golden. Nose is tropical fruit, floral hops. Taste matches, fruity, hoppy, a bit bitter on the finish. Sweet overall. It's fine, I prefer their standard ipa.

Drucken på fat. Klart bärnstensfärgad med vitaktig skumkrona. Försiktigt söt, med smak av tropiska frukter, malt och citrus. Välbalanserad bärs, med fin efterbeska. Toppen!

screigh (482) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours a deep gold color almost to copper. Thick white head that lasts with tons of lacing. Tremendous hop aroma of citrus and almost fresh cut grass. A caramel malt flavor. Dry and lingering bitterness in the finish.

c’est très très bon. Really. Une robe brun doré avec pas mal de truc en suspension. Un nez robuste. Une belle ampleur en bouche. Des notes cidrées et acidulées qui se déploient sur une longeur conséquentes. Assèche bien le palais et excite les papilles qui en redemandent. Et en même temps, il ya une certaine douceur ou rondeur. L’étiquette de la bouteille en fait pas des tonnes et sait rester discrète tout en distillant quelques petites phrases amusantes. Vraiment, un ensemble très séduisant.

A great tasting beer. Enjoy it with food or by itself. A 22oz beer that goes down like a 12 oz beer. What does that tell you.
