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%!

Pours a clear orange color with a small off-white head. The aroma is of sweet malts, caramel and citrus and pine hops. The taste is more of the same with a malty back bone and citrus/pine hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied.

Dark orange body, with a big active white head on the pour. Nice blend on the nose, of grass, citrus and caramel malts. Mouthfeel is quite velvety, almost like a cask conditioned beer, only still retaining a bit of a sharp edge. Sweet peach dominates the tastes for me. There is also some nice caramel malts. Definitely can tell this is an Imperial, and not a stereotypical citrus juice bomb IPA. I love this beer.

Nice and fresh hops on this golden color ale with a major foamy white head. Perfect balance between malt sweetness and hops. Good stuff.

Sample at Waldo Hopfest 2016. Comes golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Taste is grapefruit, tropical, pine, and malt. Very good.

6-pack from the LCBO. Pours a clean amber colour with a big warm cap, great retention and creamy-foamy lacing. Grassy hop aromas with citrus over caramel malts. Sweet malty taste with lots of herbal notes. This Imperial IPA goes down nicely, but it is a little rich in the middle. Thankfully, the finish is lightly dry and helps this.

I drank this tonight and canít believe I havenít had it before. Beer is a smart simple brew, with a deep and solid malt bitll that allows for a solid well thought out hops profile. Itís a strong hop beer that is malt forward. Pleasant all the way though.

Refreshing IPA for being a double. Light citrus notes and semi dry finish make this one i will definitely get again

Tasted at our DIPA shootout. This beer won our shootout. Grapefruit/tropical aroma, excellent fruit additions, well-integrated bitterness, slightly sweet, syrupy mouth feel.

Pours clear orange with a big foamy off white head. Aroma has citrus fruits and sweet fruits with a bit of pine. Flavor is pretty much the same with a good bitterness. Very enjoyable beer.

On tap at Lagunitas tap room, Pataluma (CA, USA). Orange clear pour, tick and resistant off-white cap. Nose: citric, almonds pastry. Mouth: complex citric-sweet orientation, juicy sweet tangerine soul, clean, dry finish! Just great! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
