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%!

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Poured form a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a hazy copper color with a light tan head that leaves decent lacing. Aroma is of light malt, caramel, grape, and citrus/pine. Taste is sweet, malty, with a hint of citrus, and an undertone of bitterness. The bitterness becomes apparent with alcohol on the backend. Decent mouthfeel with a light carbonation. Overall a good beer but not very reminiscent of the D-IPA style.

UPDATED: SEP 7, 2014 Almost no head; golden orange in the glass. Smell is delicious -- apple turnovers, candied fruit, a little grass, some citrus. Taste is crisp, bready, cooked pastry dough, tangy and slightly dry on the finish. Really good.

Juancho (239) - Georgia, USA - JAN 20, 2007
22 oz bottle. Perfect execution of the IIPA/DIPA. Not over the top like some of the great ones out there, approachable yet assertive at the same time. Cloudy orange/copper color, great head, First you start with the citrus/frutal grapefruit, pineapple gifts of the generous hopping no doubt. Finishes nicely wiht what iíll describe as a smoky/peaty taste. I like it . A good introductory beer for anyone that wants to start with imperial IPAs.

jarow (237) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Nose is lots of piney hops, some citrus, sweet caramel malts. Taste begins and finishes with the hops, again pine dominating, some citrus. Fairly well-balanced with the malts. Some sweetness up front, more bitter towards the finish. Nice dry, bitter hoppy finish. Pretty good IPA overall.

Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Plenty of sediment floating about. Aroma is citrus, caramel, toasted malts. Taste is lightly sweet and bitter. Palate - well carbonated, sticky, long bitter finish.

This IPA is definitely different, as someone suggested, from the offerings of Stone. But in itís own way this one is just as good! It smells sweet, piney and grassy or citrusy. Not a lot of head when poured, but what is there lingers on and on. The color is pretty typical, though a bit more amber and hazy than some. The taste is initially sweet, then hoppy, bitter, and resinous or piney, whichever adjective one prefers. The palate is medium-thick, a bit sticky, but not overpowering. The finish is clean and bitter, with some lingering floral notes. I like it, and Iíll try it again when I find it on the shelf!

blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2007
Pours a beautiful rusty orange color with a small frothy head. This beer has a strong earthy/piney flavor along with the typical hoppiness IPAs are known for.
