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

TBone (16116) - 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.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2002
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 Clear amber. Chewy, toasty crystal malt aroma. Chewy, sticky taste with only a hint of citrusy hops. Hrm. The worst qualities of this brewery all in one glass.

Dedollewaitor (15488) - 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 (15253) - 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.

mcberko (14074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours hazy golden with a white head. Grassy hops, pine and grapefruit on the nose. Much more hoppy than the single IPA, with less of a malt backbone - just the way I like IPAs. Beautiful body, albeit a tad thin - however, the palate is wonderful: pine hops, grapefruits, some citrus, good astringency. Great double IPA.

bhensonb (13985) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Resin and grapefruit aroma (and malt). Gold tending towards reddish amber (top to bottom under halogen), maybe a ruby hint towards the bottom. Medium feel, malt to start, moving to hops, to grapefruit, to hops. Grapefruit noticeable at the finish. Swish and it’s chewable. Swish and an apricot component appears. And it’s 78 ibu. Nicely astringent when all is done. Pine in the burp. Really, really, great.

Sampled at CBC 2013. Clear orange color, medium sized white to off-white head. Aroma is moderately malty, heavy hoppyness, pine, spruce and resin. Taste malts, hops, pine, spruce, resin, moderate to hevy bitter. Moderate to heavy bitter finish as well.
