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

Great IPA. Complex malty start moving into a resiny/grassy hop finish/. High gravity with excellent mouthfeel. All the complexity I expect from such a brewery.

mreeves (276) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2004
A solid IPA. Nice appearance, good lacing on the glass and good carbonation level. Hops dominate, but it's well-balanced. As with most Lagunitas brews, a solid beer for the money and would recommend.

22 oz bomber in an English pint. Clear orange pour, minimal off white head. Lotsa hops on the nose and then some pine. Citrus is a bit strong upfront then the malt comes thru. This is a PFG brew. Sometimes I have a hard time with IPA’s at first. It takes a bit to appreciate the hoppy ones.

RyanK (273) - 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.

HPDalen (272) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2016
Aroma of grapefruit, orange and hints of yeast/dough. Pours golden with a tall, frothy and white head. Nicely balanced flavour, mostly bitter. Feels quite thin, average carbonation, bitter finish. Quite enjoyable.

505 (271) - Echo Park, California, USA - JUL 8, 2006
Aroma was hppy, some caramel. Flavor was nice typical double IPA, some citrus, pine etc. Nice looking, orange, with nice lacing. IIPA’s are almost never bad, this wasn’t the best I’ve had, but still a pretty good beer.

BiffNilsson (270) - Perstorp, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2013
Bärnstensfärg med vit krona som sjunker lite väl snabbt. Doften är liten för en lagunitas, men det doftar av grape, citron och jäst. Smaken är fyllig med tilltagen beska. Eftersmaken är beska som överlever länge. En riktigt bra öl som smakar på lagunitas vis.

Dark amber. Tall white head. Well carbonated. Aroma of hops. Nice full, smooth body. Not that sweet.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Pours a nice ruddy golden brown with a lacy head and floaters (yeast). Sweet and hoppy aroma. Flavor is full. Sweet start that opens up into a sharp, yet subtle taste. Mildly hoppy finish.

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.
