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

This gold colored beer has tinges of red. It has a sweet hop aroma. Nice crisp and full flavor it well balanced and finishes cleanly. It goes down easy. Maybe a little too easy. It could be a problem. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from 22 oz bottle. Pours clear amber color with off white head. Big citrus peel, mango and juniper nose. Oily feel in mouth. Caramel malt ,mango and orange start. Lots of big fruity flavors and finishing with grapefruit zest. Not a lot of lingering bitterness. Another killer brew from Lagunitas.

dliberto (159) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Pours a nice orange color with a small white head. Aroma consists of pine, resin, and citrus. Taste is much the same with an emphasis on the resin hops. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a slight sticky mouth feel. Very good beer.

firemarshal (159) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Bottle. Clear light amber with orange hue. Creamy dense head and excellent retention. Aroma is orange blossom, basil, honey, peaches. Taste is Citra hops with good malt support. The brew has an initial bite, but finishes very smooth on the palate. Very, very good.

Cunningham (4507) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 9, 2014
Lovely unclear deep golden color with a fine white head. Good looking. Power aroma. Rich grapefruity and balanced fruity. Quite thick body. Fine balance between bitterness and sweetness. Could easily falled over to the sweet side. Tasty rich grapefruit hoppy and nice tropical fruity. Lovely dipa.
