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%!

Maximus! Maximus! Maximus! 6 pac, pours dark amber with medium white suds which trace the glass nicely. Smells of fruit and candied pecans. Tastes like medium malty body with hints of honey with mild hoppy aftertaste.

Echon (327) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2016
Golden. Rich aroma with citrusy and spicy hops. Full hop flavour, spicy and pungent, and a full taste with moderate sweetness and a very bitter finish. Full-bodied and soft. Overall, a great double IPA. It has the right malt sweetness to balance the aggresive hops.

delnoche (503) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - JUL 9, 2016
12fl oz bottle poured into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint. Light, sparkling, with a fluffy offwhite cap. Smells like a tropical fruit that I can’t quite place. The hops in the flavor kicks a little at first and then becomes rather muted. Pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OminouSC2 (401) - SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2016
Orange color, beige head. Hops, hops, hops in the aroma. Grass, pine and citrus. Sweet beer with a hop bomb during the finish. The hoppy taste gets to intense and doesn’t suit me at all.

leghorn99 (211) - Livorno, ITALY - JUL 1, 2016
Versa nel bicchiere di una bella tonalità arancione-ambrato, velata; è sormontata da una bella schiuma di colore bianco sporco, cremosa, che si dissipa lentamente e dalla buona allacciatura. L’aroma iniziale è un’esplosione di profumi floreali, agrumi dolci (soprattutto pompelmo ed ananas) e di luppolo, che solletica il naso. Il profumo di malto aleggia nel finale, così come quello di caramello. Al palato trova seguito quanto percepito al naso, con il luppolo che domina l’ingresso in bocca, accompagnato da forti note agrumate, di pino e sentori di resine. L’amaro è ben bilanciato dalla comparsa a metà bevuta del malto e, dalle note dolci di caramello; per un finale lungo e secco. Ha una bassa carbonazione, che la rende liscia e cremosa per un’ottima facilità di bevuta.

runaway (79) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2016
22 oz bottle pours a semi-hazy orange with thin patchy white head. Aroma is resinous with a pith note and a hint of banana esters. Taste is biscuit, caramel, and floral pith; up front bitter with a mild, slick finish. Seems like a cross between a red and a hop bomb.
