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

fiulijn (16428) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2006
Amber color; generous and creamy head. Nice aroma of malt and hops, some fruits and resins. Good malty body, with a light liquorice taste, and an interesting bitterness, without being exaggerated; the hops are quite resiny; in the final the bitterness raisies. Mild emotions.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle, 22oz. (RBNAG 07) An orange-golden, slightly hazy beer, poured with an off-white head. Sweetish nose with all the joys of American hops dominating. The same goes for the flavor, lots of pine, resin, citrus and fruityness, as well as a lot of sweetness, but far from overpowering the hops. Full body, and so hoppy it almost feels a bit astringent in the mouth. A lovely beer, but maybe a bit too hoppy, meaning that it is more a hop juice than a beer. (071103)

harrisoni (15047) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2009
Bomber from Barley Wine in Copenhagen. I had been craving something hoppy all evening and finally I get around to opening this. Clear copper amber colour with a lasting ivory head. Big syrupy piney hoppy nose. Spicey hop with some kind of tangeriney citrus fruit too. I’d been saving this for 5 months to have on a special evening when I could really appreciate it and you know what? It hasn’t let me down. I love this brewery and this is another more than solid beer. They just take the styles and do it so much better. Just so remarkably fresh in its flavours. I mean I love the pale ale and this is just as good. God I love the hops on this. But the mouthfeel is deep and full as well. Really good carbonation. Beats stuff like Great Divide in my opinion. Less malty syrupy and more on the hop side without being stupidly hoppy. No alcohol unpleasantness at all. Bit of heat on end, but not excessive. The pale ale I think is perfect. This is almost as good but not quite as the pale ale I would drink all night, but a bomber of this is probably sufficient, but I would still want a bottle every night. Exceptional. It’s the mouthfeel that I just find so good. God that really is hoppy. Just what I wanted. I’m burping hop. Lovely. The carbonation is both soft and insistent at the same time.

Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers and citrus. Some caramel and malt as well. Very good balance.

Dedollewaitor (14647) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2009 Orange amber with a good head. Malty caramel & fine hop aroma. Flowery & piney. Very fresh & crisp. Fruity & elegant. Rerate July 09: Very sweet malty profile. Caramel and bread. Ok hops as well but way too sweet malty.

MiP (14447) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle, 7.5%. Nice, sweet and caramelly hop aroma. Clear copper colour, small white head. The flavour is quite sweet, caramelly. Grassy from the hops with a good, cleansing bitterness. The finish has a little teaish hoppiness along with a good alcohol note. Quite flavourful but still well-balanced.

TBone (14174) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Bottled (CK). Clear amber-copper color, small white head. Strong aroma of pineapple and hops. Quite sweet and malty flavor with lots of pineapple and resiny notes. Some citrus in the finish too. Not really powerful for IIPA. And seems that I am not a fan of pineapple and hop combination -to me this looks a bit overrated here.

Leighton (13979) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle at Block Party. Pours clear copper with a medium, white head. Bit hop aroma with sweet citrus and grass. Flavor has a nice, sweet malt profile followed by heavy, bitter hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with lip-smacking bitters and light, bready malts. Solid.

Hazy orange with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet, caramel and rather hoppy - grapefruit and pine. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. 170609
