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

RyanK (269) - Rhode Island, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Pours a murky, unfiltered gold with a white foam head that head that stays on the top of the glass and a decent amount of carbonation, looks good. Smells sweet in hoppy, with some spicy fruit making up the sweetness. Taste actually is lacking on hops and is more malty. Bitter, but also with a sweet and yet spicy cherry flavor. I can taste the alcohol and as well and the boozy taste really is prominent and finishes on the palate. Not so great, but not horrible.

AdamT (268) - North Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2014
12oz bottle from Brewmaster’s in Wilson. Orange hue, hazy clarity with mostly diminishing white head. Spotty lacing. Moderate citrus hop, some sweet fruit, floral aroma on the nose. Moderate bitter grapefruit taste up front with a floral finish. As it warmsthe alcohol starts to come out more.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2006
Bottle from santa: Pours a nice copper color with a nice, slightly off white head. Smell is seems pleasant, some pine, citrus, and maybe some caramel hidden in the back. Taste is piney, with a hint of citrus. In no way is this IPA overpowering. It’s well balanced and very well done.

Jokestereo (267) - SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2015
Pours in a golden amber color with longlasting line of white head. The aroma consists of hop, malt, tropical fruits, honey and pinapple. The flavour is hoppy and sweet with citrus, tropical fruit and honey.

Speedle (266) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Re-Rate 3/6/08 citrus and pine hop aroma ... sweet citrus rind, concentrated orange and medium pine resin ... very nice balance of pine and citrus with a good amount of light sweetness ... maybe its the new batch or maybe its the timing of my growing appreciation of craft beer over the last year, but this is better than I remember 1st Rating (4.1) slightly hazy copper, small head...strong hop aroma, citrus and malt...great crisp hoopy taste..very refreshing..great IPA

iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - APR 8, 2012
Pours light copper with thin white head and little lacing. Aromas of pine, spruce, and lemons. Malty light sweetness turns to light bitterness, then finishes with a dry bitter bite. Very well done, smooth IPA that leaves wanting more.

chef201atc (261) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2007
Pour a clear deep golden copper with an ample frothy off-white head. Some citursy hops come through in the aroma and, to a lesser degree, some pine. Nose is also a little sweet. Palate is slick and just a tad sticky. Medium carbonation. Nice hop bitterness and grapefruit hop flavor. Just enough malty sweetness to be balanced.
