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%!

It was a pretty straight-forward brew. No stand-out flavors or aromas but still very well balanced and good overall.

orange_3084 (118) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2014
Brilliantly clear amber colour with thin white head. Strong grapefruit and pine aroma with decent caramel backing. Standard, but exemplary. Oily body adds to perceived sweetness. The caramel is nicely balanced with a strong but rounded bitterness. A little alcohol warmth to finish. Nice.

solidfunk (4320) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Very citrusy in the beginning - huge overall hops infusion. Does pretty well on the malt backbone as well though. Pours dark amber with good head and lacing. Medium bitter finish. This would be very nice if super fresh. Some peel. Bottle.

Draught on keg at Euston Tap. What a strange interpretation of the DIPA style - it smells like perfume & tastes like a mash-up of flowers and Ribena summer fruits! But, I seem to be enjoying its strangeness ...

allmyvinyl (3977) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Keg at the hanging bat. Pours clear golden amber, thin white head. Hop heavy resin aromas, pine too. Taste is bitter, sticky, boozy. Oily texture, bitter finish. Good, but not their best.

jamestulloch (1506) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2014
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2014 Keg at The Hanging Bat. Clear golden body with a thin off-white head. Steady carbonation. Great lacing. Aroma of pine, honey and orange. Flavour of pine needles, boozy tangerine and a faint peppery finish. Very bitter and hoppy. Medium body with an oily, almost chewy texture. Soft fizz. This brewery knows how to hop an IPA/DIPA.
