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%!

BOD 345/13. Pours a clear amber with a massive head and lacing that retains well. The nose is a blend of sweet citrus (orange and mango) coupled with notes of grapefruit and pine over a sweet caramel background. Almost full bodied with a rich creamy texture. The carbonation level is normal with a touch of effervescence on the finish. The complex, yet balanced, flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with a tart burst of citrus hop flavor like the nose, flows to a mild sweet citric bitterness which recedes into a caramel sweetness. The finish is smooth with a burst of sweetness and lingering light tart bitterness. A complex brewer’s masterpiece of balance, flavor and bitterness.

One of my most favourite beers in the world. IPAs don’t get much better than this. The strongly flavored biscuity malt supports the big citrusy and subtlety piney hops so perfectly without being too thick or cloying. This beer has it all.. It’s refreshing, satisfying and impressively sessionable for such high ABV. Genius creation.

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

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.

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 ...

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.
