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%!

Bottle 5/19/13. Clear, amber color. Thick head. Toasty malt nose with piney notes. Very smooth mouthfeel. Finishes with a gentle hop bitterness, alcoholic viscosity, and fizz on the tip of the tongue.

JBPortland (964) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 23, 2015
12oz bottle pours clear amber with 2 finger head. Nose is malty orange, grapefruit and some sticky pine resin and a bit of toasted bread. Taste is malt heavy, sweet round caramel and malty fruit with sticky orange, resin, and piney grapefrut, bitter. Finish is bitter, malty orange, some toast, resin. A bit too malty for my liking.

WABeerFiend (271) - - JAN 16, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a beer can glass on 06.03.14. A: See through amber/orange body. 2 1/2 finger white head. Fantastic lacing. S: Lots of grapefruit. It also has burnt caramel/brown sugar. T: Grapefruit and burnt caramel dominate. Flower and hop resin are subtle. O: This was good, but it was more malt forward than I like. Maybe the bottle was old and the hops faded though.

grubypawel (125) - - JAN 15, 2015
Pours clear amber with a think cream head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit with hint of alcohol and butter :( This drinks like an IPA, but offers a richer aroma and a decent bitter finish. Would be perfect if not for the diacetyl.

From a bomber. Pours clear amber with a thick frothy off white head. Tastes like sweet citrus, caramel, light booze, dry malt, and earthy hops. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like caramel, nutty, booze, and citrus hops.

Pours a brilliant orange color with a large creamy white head. Notes of pine needles, apricots, and sunflower seeds, with a nice toasty caramel finish. Great beer really well balanced and not overly hoppy.

FMP (9) - SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2015 does not count
Doftar fruktträdsblomster, ananas och honungsbröd. Smaken är en härlig kombination av sötma och beska. Sötman är exotiska växter, så ananasen. Någon blommighet finna också i smaken, svenska sommaråkrar tänker jag på. Fantastisk öl!
