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

Easily the best IPA available in Arizona. "Head" and shoulders better than the dull, mono-dimensional brews from Ale Smith and Stone that have better reviews. I can only assume that not many people have had the chance to enjoy this wonderful concoction.

355ml bottle. Looks great in the glass with a strong body and a nice cracking head that hangs around. Once those piney floral hop aromas get into your nose they take over your body. Full mouthfeel with a silky texture and a flavour that makes your throat glow. Definitely one to be savoured.

This is by far the best IPA I have ever tasted. Fruity aroma and fruity taste which compliments this IPA and makes it its own.

Bottle. Clear, amber colour with medium off-white frothy head, that sits down slowly and became creamy with nice lacing. Strong, gorgeous hoppy aroma, also cactus, nettle, grass, herbs, grapefruit. Flavor is heavy bitter with some liquor notices. Outstanding beer!
