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

Pours an almost clear amber with whiteish head. Big, tropical fruit hoppiness with mangoes, preserved peaches and some pine cones. Slightly caramelly maltiness. Juicy aroma. The palate is medium+ bodied with some sweetness and a nice kick of bitterness on the finish. Pretty well balanced for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a good IPA, piny taste. Was definitley lacking in aroma when compared with some other IPAs. Very citrusy. Was cloudy in appearance.

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.

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 (174) - 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.

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.

Tjoxen (173) - SWEDEN - SEP 14, 2012
Clear amber with small head. Resin, caramel and citrus peel. Ending with a good bitterness. Itís really hoppy.

maxhits (172) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - AUG 6, 2002
A bitter, sappy green pine underpining and a resinous, deep hop flower aroma. Slightly chalky, dusty and dry; although high in alcohol content, this ale is easy to gulp.
