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

smells crisp and those hops don’t hide. Pours a lovely dark amber with no head to speak of. The taste is bold and refreshing for an Imperial IPA. Less IBU’s than a Hop Stoopid but they make this bird sing beautifully with less. It’s a really good brew, palate is nice, leaves fast and dry. Under-lying tones of mango and blood orange. Yummy stuff. resin, floral, citrus, bubblegum,.

Bottle from CBB. Clear gold with a small white head. Huge pine hop aroma with some malts. Super bitter hop profile with nice caramel malts.

Pours a deep gold color almost to copper. Thick white head that lasts with tons of lacing. Tremendous hop aroma of citrus and almost fresh cut grass. A caramel malt flavor. Dry and lingering bitterness in the finish.

c’est très très bon. Really. Une robe brun doré avec pas mal de truc en suspension. Un nez robuste. Une belle ampleur en bouche. Des notes cidrées et acidulées qui se déploient sur une longeur conséquentes. Assèche bien le palais et excite les papilles qui en redemandent. Et en même temps, il ya une certaine douceur ou rondeur. L’étiquette de la bouteille en fait pas des tonnes et sait rester discrète tout en distillant quelques petites phrases amusantes. Vraiment, un ensemble très séduisant.

A great tasting beer. Enjoy it with food or by itself. A 22oz beer that goes down like a 12 oz beer. What does that tell you.

This hop heavy beer is definitely a crowd pleaser in a room of IPA drinkers but beware the ABV will catch up quickly on summer days.

Copper pour with two fingers of fluffy white head. Great looking. Aromas of pine and grapefruit, with some malty hints of biscuit and bread. Flavors translate from aromas, with a very smooth semi-sweet mouthfeel. Good stuff as always from Lagunitas!

Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Doft av rostad malt och en del fruktighet från humlen. Brödig och spritig med en hel del trevlig humle.
