COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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%!

keanex (1289) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2012
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass from a 12 ounce bottle with no date.

A: Slightly hazy amber with a thin white head with poor retention.

S: Semi-sweet citrus.

T: Grapefruit throughout over a sweet malt base, a bit too sweet.

M: Full-bodied with fizzy carbonation.

O: Too thick and sweet for my liking, not very drinkable.

Bottle from Total Wine. Amber pour with lots if big bubbles -- pretty beer. Smells like a pine forest. Tastes is big hops with a nice malt balance. Very good beer.

rxeight (1042) - Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
12oz bottle to my dogfish IPA glass. Hoppy wood and pine dominated hops. Touch of bitterness. A bit watery body. This is a pretty good IPA.

ChrisFields (69) - Ashtabula, Ohio, USA - APR 11, 2014
Amber pour, nice head. Citrusy aroma. Nice hoppy flavor with some sweet maltiness. A solid DIPA. I like what Lagunitas has to offer here.

CraftBeerNick (748) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
Bottle at home from stockholm, 10th April 14. Nice DIPA, very drinkable, and good balanced beer. Nice stuff

HonusWagner (1222) - Florida, USA - APR 10, 2014
Pretty much a Lagunitas IPA on steroids, orange juicy, medium bitterness, a bit thick bodied for a WC IPA, tasty but nowhere near my tops.

maneliquor (2781) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Nothing extraordinary about this but drinks well and is relatively fresh which is nice. Mainly driven by citric fruit and pine. Slightly sticky which works nicely. Good drop

Handypaul (161) - - APR 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours copper with a short head that leaves great lace. Huge aroma of pine, citrus, hay and grass. Nicely balanced medium bitter and sweet, interesting flavors of grapefruit and bubblegum, oily texture, medium body, average carbo and a brief balanced finish with sweet in the far finish.

60minuteman (597) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2014
Very clear and pale golden color. Good white retention and lace. Aroma of sweet malts, flowers, pine, some kind of fruit, spice, sugar. Taste is hoppy and mildly bitter. A little sweet but excellent balance with the hops. Really well done.

12 ounce bottle pours a medium copper color with white creamy head that lasts. Nice amount of lacing seems like there's hop residue or chill haze in the beer. Aroma is very piney with some sweet caramel malt scent along with some citrus. Nice malt to bitter hop balance a bit more full-bodied than a standard IPA.

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
bottle. Amber with one finger head. Kicked up version of the standard IPA. A bit of alcohol warmth, but very tasty.
