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%!

MiP (15143) - 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.

Oakes (14884) - 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.

bhensonb (13732) - 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.

Tmoney99 (13156) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Draft at The Ginger Man, NY. Clear amber color with a moderate white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good hoppy and pine aroma. Medium body with a dry texture. Full well balanced flavor with a moderate bitter finsh of good duration.

FatPhil (13051) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 20, 2012
355ml bottle (Systembolaget, Stockholm)
Sweet caramelly biscuity malts in the aroma, and lots of fruity hops too. Smooth slick palate, but crisp carbonation cuts through that well. In the mouth it’s full of sugars, tons of caramel, and loads of fleshy fruit flavours too. Some alcohol wafts over too. Too much sugar, and it fails to cover the alcohol. However, despite those negatives, there is a hedonistic aspect, the sticky juicy friuts just tempt you in. One only for the end of the evening, I’d think.
