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%!
IBU: 72.41

cervmagpt (317) - PORTUGAL - APR 20, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14C). Bottle 35 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: intense and nice hop aroma with mild notes of grapefruit with a pine and resinous character. sweet malty background provides a good support. APPEARANCE: gold ambar color and slightly hazy. medium ivory head with good retention. TASTE: balanced malty sweet flavour, with hop notes (grapefruit, pine, resin). high bitterness that lingers well beyond a semi-dry finish. PALATE: medium body with moderate carbonation. no astringency. mild alcohol warming. OVERALL: a very good example of an Imperial IPA. Recommended.

jdskinns (209) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a translucent, dull orange with soapy white head. Aroma is grass, hay, caramel, and some resinous hops. Taste is lightly sweet, quite bitter. Hides the alcohol well. This is and will continue to be a staple beer I keep going back to.

joejames (286) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours clear amber, two finger off white head. decent lacing with some retention. Aroma of pine and herbs. Taste is on the sweet side balanced with earthy bitterness. Full bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes bitter sweet with tasting notes of grass, herbs, pine, cantaloupe, caramel and alcohol. Not as good as expected but not bad.

JakeG (20) - Sherwood Park, Alberta, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Pours a hazy amber with a frothy average white head. Earthy aroma heavy on the hops with some citrus. Flavour wasn’t as hoppy as I expected -- bitter, spicy and a bit malty. I found I could taste the alcohol a bit too much. May have been served a little too warm.

Simonsen (784) - NORWAY - APR 12, 2015
Flaske fra systembolaget. Noe uklar gylden farge. Moderat karbonert med hvit skumtopp. Smaker grapefrukt, noe furunål, noe karamell. Merker lite til alkoholen. Ganske god

When first poured and tasted a strong bitter hop flavor is overwhelmingly present. After it has warmed for a bit a more balanced sweet melon and hop flavor is present.

Aroma is sweet and hoppy. Even with 72 ibu, didn’t feel it was too bitter. Extra alcohol is noticeable in a good way. More of a sip and enjoy IPA rather than one you chug. Very solid IPA.

Old rating. Pretty standard Cali DIPA. Big caramel, biscuit body, huge bitter hop crunch. Piney.

Pours a clear amber with a foamy white head. Smells of citrus and pine. Taste is bitter and sweet biscuits citrus hops.
