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

Citrus mixed with pine aroma. Pours a thick malted head. Amber colored and Sweet (peaches? what is that fruit i taste?) on the tip of the tongue and finishes with a hoppy wallop. Very refreshing. Be warned though. At 8.2% ABV refreshing can quickly give way to sleeping ! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2008 I love the beautiful look of this beer. Its really cloudy with a dark orange hus and off white lasting head. The aroma is that of a good IPA, citrus and sweet. I think overall this is a supper yummy beer. I donít like to rate based on category, but this is not an imperial/double IPA. My girlfriend, who is not a bitter fan, didnít even think this was bitter. I didnít either.

Out of the bottle so color is hard to judge. Smell is sweet without much hoppiness. Taste is much sweeter than I expected or would have liked. Not too bad, but not my favorite.

brettpace (176) - New York City, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2007
This is a good IPA, piny taste. Was definitley lacking in aroma when compared with some other IPAs. Very citrusy. Was cloudy in appearance.

Thick pillowy head. Golden color in appearance. Great hoppy taste with a sweet finish.

philvil (176) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Maybe this would be better on tap. Lagunitas makes some great IPAs but this is not one of them. The hops just arenít there, they donít have the intense citrus kick that a good California ipa should have.

duffman462 (175) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Rather hazy amber-orange, diminishing head. Very hoppy on the nose, with grass-clippings and citrus. Thick body, moderately sweet, with a wonderfully bitter ending.

Tortman18 (174) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Pours a dark copper with a huge, 2 fingers of frothy off white head. Leaves a lot of sticky lacing. Nose is typical of an imperial IPA. Very citrusy and moderately hoppy. A lot of grapefruit and orange. Mouth is very bitter and sweet. A lot of citrus again. Grapefruit, orange and pineapple. The finish has a lot of pine and is very sticky.

ReademNwheat (174) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2008
From a bottle. Pours a capper color. Aromas of piney and citrus hops. More citrusy, piney hops in the taste with some caramel malt. Very dry finish. Good double IPA.

Wolfenkopf (173) - Villa Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2010
This one is quite alright. Hoppy in both aroma and taste, this brew has an off-white head that fades promptly but never disappears altogether. Light amber in color. Smooth on the palate and finishes faintly bitter as an IPA should. I would have thought something with this abv would have had more of an impact on me, but it is simply enjoyable, not intriguing.
