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%!

Pours a nice, clear, goldish amber. Great floral and pine aroma up front. Big piney hop flavor up front, with a touch of grapefruit at the end. A bit of lingering dryness at the end, though the first few sips made my mouth water. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2014 Bottle. Marzipan, soap and fresh fruits. Smooth and quite well balanced between sweet and bitter, but in the aftertaste the bitterness takes over.

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.

loads of hops attack the mouth, nice aroma and deep golden color. Malts are overshadowed by hops, but so well done, this is what an IPA should be!

From bottle... poured orange with small white head. Beautiful citrus hoppy aroma. Initial taste had very high alcohol prominence, but that faded as it went away to a bitter, grapefruit tase. Very warming finish. Pretty good.

Pretty good, and a little unexpected. I expected a lot of hop character but the intense citrus taste was a little bit of a surprise. It was really hoppy and was actally pretty refreshing.

Nice copper pour with a half-finger head that leaves an ok lace throughout. The hop aroma is apparent as well as well as some candyish sweetness. The taste is a pretty nice citrus hoppiness with a sticky malt sweetness. The hop flavor is pretty basic not a whole lot of depth and/or variation. The mouthfeel is sticky and a little slick. I really canít stand a slick on my pallet. The slickness detracts from any potential for crispness and "refreshing or quenching" attributes. Overall this is a good flavored and bodied brew with a slick mouthfeel.

Ahhh west coast hop monsters. This fits right in with the crowd, but itís a hell of a crowd! Big hop aroma, bitter citrus flavor, good mouthfeel, nicely intoxicating. Bonus- 2.99 at Hi Times! Woot! (this is my third rating tonite, Iím losing my edge :P)

Bottle. Dark copper color with a slight head. Strong hop aroma. Thick to the palate. Flavor is a very hoppy start mildly bitter middle and a sweet finish.
