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

On tap at the brewery’s loft / tasting room. Thick and delicious without tasting like hop resin. After reading a few other reviews that suggested this beer tastes like tea, I now know why I sometimes think my tea tastes like beer.

I’m on a Beer streak, y’all. The hits keep comin’. What can I say? I really might have to change my name to "The Great BEER Magnet". It’s like that. Not too strong, and nowhere near weak...this stuff is "juuuust right", like the porridge.

Pours amber brown and clear with a cream colored head. Nutty and hoppy aroma. Super-hoppy and bitter taste with hints of nuts and carmel. Finishes with a kick of spicy hops at the back of the throat. Overall, a good IPA but the palate lacks to the smoothness of other IPAs.

Well rounded DIPA and one that I would drink again. Very bold with lots of citrus and hops. Smooth and easy to drink for the ABV.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 ok, open first one, realize it is leaking and flat, so that sucked. Opened another, get an awesome color of copper, nice big head and robust, malty and hoppy aroma. Normal IPA flavors of slight citrus and fruity sweetness, good full malt feel in the mouth. Alcohol really well hidden in there too, really snuck up on me. Great beer, kinda wished for a little more unique flavor though.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2013 Bottle at home. Pours clear copper with white viscous head. Aroma is piney, earthy, dank with some citrus - like a handful of hops pellets. Taste is strong bitterness quickly balanced by the malt. Pleasant bitter aftertaste.

bonk0076 (99) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Hazy amber in color with a slight head that quickly disapears. Aroma of citrus, caramel and hops. Flavor is pine needles with a touch of citrus and finishes long with the hops

12oz bottle pours a clear amber with extensive suspended particulate. I’m hoping this one just sat on the store cooler shelf too long, because it’s just average at best.

Looking at this beer in the glass, you would never know it was a double IPA. Smelling it you would think it is a boring pale ale, or something. Regardless, the flavor shows the true talent behind the hops. Oh, and the mouthfeel. The mouthfeel is incredible. The mouthfeel actually changed with every sip, and is almost a roller coaster as you drink. Good name for a good DIPA from a great brewery.
