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%!

Very hoppy, piney, distinctive Lagunitas scent. Some malt detected, but mostly pine hops. Dark golden color with a massive amount of white foam. The taste is not a hop bomb like I was expecting. It is a bit sweet at first, with hops showing up at the end but even then they are not overwhelming. Palate is smooth; not as fizzy as many other IPA’s. At 8.2%, I don’t know if I would call it a DIPA, but it is a beer I could drink right out of the bottle on a summer day.

Pours a pretty clear golden amber with a large creamy dull white head and tons of lace. Aroma is resin, pine, resin, tropical fruits, and sweet pale caramel malts. Taste is resin, pine, earthy, tropical fruits, medium-high bitterness, sweet pale malts, caramel maltiness, and a medium dry finish. Really nice balance with the alcohol known but masked as well.

Very hoppy taste balanced with strong taste of malt and alcohol. I love! They know how to brew a good beer I the US after all.

Sweet malt, hints of strawberry, caramel and hop resin. The alcohol is clearly evident but not overpowering. Nicely balanced, enjoyable beer.

TXBadger (1567) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Pine, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with hop resin, bitterness, and some sweetness. Well done DIPA.

You can feel the hops for a long time. No foam. Quite nice but not that special.

Clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet artificial flower. Taste is floral perfume. Better than your mass produced yellow frothy stuff, but I would pass on another. Many better ipas, and many better lagunitas.

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