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%!

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 doesnít 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.

Lubiere (12683) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004

Christian (12619) - 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.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Pours lightly coppery golden with a great, creamy, small, off-white head. Aroma is hoppy, but with quite a malty balance. Slightly weak mouthfeel, but the ABV is a bit low. Super dry flavour, though, good hoppiness. Dryness, but not that much character, actually. Disappointing.
