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

Tap. Pours with a copper to orange color and medium head. Aromas of fruit and flowers. Pretty intense hops flavors, very bitter and a little bit unbalanced. Finish is comparatively mild, but lasts.

Ughsmash (7086) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bomber. Clear caramelly/amber with a short, well-retained cap of white head... some spotty lacing. The aroma found bunches of hops (fresh grapefruit and pine needles primarily)... also some candy corn and caramel backing. Flavor had a lot of bitter pine resin and citrus more as a highlight... sticky caramel backing. Balance felt only ok.. a bit syrupy on the palate at times. Solid beer.

Pours light golden with a mostly receding off-white head. Aroma of orange hop resins. Taste is aggressive with hop resins that are fruity and piney. Notes of toffee, grapefruit, and pine. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and resinous with lively carbonation.

Hoppy and malty. Some odd malt flavors. A little too sweet. The hops are nice and hide the alcohol decently.

22oz bottle. Orangein color. Citrus aroma. Kinda watery for a DIPA. More like an IPA Taste of cascade hops. Not very impressed.

marcus (6303) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 10, 2007
THis hazy orange ale poured with a decent off-white head. There is a nice blend of malt and hops, resulting in a pleasant balanced flavor that is initially slightly sweet, then a slightly bitter. There are noticeable citrus and pine characteristics. Overall, a pretty good quaff.

This is pretty hoppy. Maybe too much of a good thing. The experience of a 22ozer was a little bit much for one person.
