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

bhensonb (12016) - 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.

argo0 (11898) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 14, 2002
This one should bring hopheads halfway to heaven. Good citrus aroma serves as a precursor to the bite in store. On the one hand, there doesn’t seem to be much balance. On the other, when the hops taste this good, who needs balance? Appearance is penalized for the large amount of sediment.

Tmoney99 (11590) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (11555) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2014
Gravity dispense at GBBF ’14, day 1, 12/08/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pine coated, candied fruit peel, bitter tropicana, grapefruit, tangy orange, ripe citric peel. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, pine, candied fruit peel, sweet licks, mango. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with hop bitterness. Decent, likely better on keg I’m sure, a touch sweet at times but dirnks well for 8%+

Christian (11493) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2007
Copper beer with a frothy off-white head that leaves some lacing. Big American hop aroma, with citrus, pine, pineapple, peach and roses. The little malt sweetness is quickly taken over by intense hop flavour, and bitterness, but the sweetness is definitely there. A think mouthfeel that is a bit overdone for my liking.
