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

This is my go to beer! Wonderful Pine hops upon opening and on the pour. Clear dark gold with a creamy head and lots of secondary bubbles as the head fades. Sweet caramel and burnt orange hops dominate the taste with a fairly bitter finish. Very oily and yet creamy at the same time. Very drinkable due to its 7.5 ABV. One of the best values in beer, these guys prove that they are not just about the money. Two thumbs up!

12 oz. bottle poured into tulip glass. Appearance is a slightly hazy golden-orange with moderate off-white head which dissipates pretty quickly. Aroma is a lot of citrus, especially grapefruit and orange. There is also a slight whiff of malt. The taste is a good balance of hops and malt. There is a citrus flavor which reminds me of grapefruit rind. Smooth, crisp feel without being too light. Another solid Lagunitas beer.

Decent flavor, ultra hoppy. But it seriously looked like coors or something (very yellow, very pale, not hazy at all), had barely any aroma, and felt awfully thin in the mouth. Overall not too terribly impressed, not very balanced.

wow... definitely what an IPA should taste like! strong hop flavor, great color with a thin small head, sharp but mellow at the same time, easily drinkable beer

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

Sliced grapefruit for breakfast wafts up to greet you. Orange, this is definitely orange. This leans quite a bit toward the citrus side of the fence. The grapefruit, orange peel taste is kind of interesting, but a bit distracting. The bitter lingers on the inside for quite awhile, yet without that coating feeling you sometimes get from high octane hops. Nice, but could do without so much grapefruit.

Powerful flowery citrusy Cascade hop aroma. Hoppy, grapefruit, tea flavor with a bitter/slightly sour/crisp finish. The hops totally dominate and there is little discernable malt flavor. Absolutely delicious, one of the best California-style IPA’s I’ve ever had.

12oz bottle: Pours a slight hazy amber with a 1-2 finger head of ivory foam. The aroma is pure IPA with mostly piney notes.The flavor continues the aroma with some malt sweetness and notable hop bitterness. The pine flavors come through again with only a hint of citrus. The mouth feel is smooth with less coating than i would expect in a double IPA. Overall this is a solid beer but this is a crowded category with many great examples.

Looks like most ipa’s. Heavy ipa taste at first followed by a remarkably neat finish. went well with parmesan cracker bread.

12 ounce bottle pours a medium copper color with white creamy head that lasts. Nice amount of lacing seems like there's hop residue or chill haze in the beer. Aroma is very piney with some sweet caramel malt scent along with some citrus. Nice malt to bitter hop balance a bit more full-bodied than a standard IPA.
