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

This IIPA pours with an amber orange body topped by a thick, off-white head with lots of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a very slight hop note and a touch of lemon. Not the aroma I was expecting. The flavor is slightly sweet yet mostly bitter, piney and hoppy with a slight grapefruit note and a good amount of malt. The finish is very bitter and piney. Full bodied, slightly warming and slightly dry.

An intense IPA. Amber with beige head. Not very impressive visually but the nose was strong hops, grapefruit, alcohol. Great mouthfeel. Rich and thick. Flavor had kick to it. Hops bitterness in a good way. Fruity. Grapefruit juicy. Kick ass IPA.

pours almost orange with a thick white head that laces down the glass. smells of sweet applesauce. taste is of earthy fruit. there is some malt flavor to balance this out, leaves a pleasant finish of roasted apples.

Pours Golden orange color with nice head that stick to the edge of the glass. Hoppy Aroma. Taste of caramel and alcool rounded with citrus hops. Bitterness ok but not as powerfull as other double IPA I have tasted. Overall it is well balance and pleasent to drink.

Flowery hop nose. Body is a golden orange color and head is off white. Medium lace. Flavor is hoppy and plays with honey, lemon and tea. Clean finish.

Aroma is a lighter than anticipated orange hops, hazy orange colour, small off-white foamy head. Flavour is hoppy, with some malt background, giving a nice balance to this medium bodied beer. Terrific! Thanks again to Ralph @ Volo for being bold enough to bring these beers to Toronto!

22 oz bottle. Hazy orange with a big frothy, long lasting head. Scent was a bit on the weak side but wow, what flavor. Big hoppy jolt of grapefruit, orange peel, pine and freshly brewed tea. The special thing about this beer is the huge bitter finish that lasts and last. Super IPA!!

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAY 30, 2005
22 oz bottle. Bright clear orange, thick fully lasting puffy head, substantial lacing...resin dominant in the pungent, earthy hop aroma profile, perhaps some leather and grapefruit...ample body presents a challenging amount of wet piney PNW hops, low to moderate sweetness, intense bitterness late along with an odd and perhaps misplaced licorice-anise undertone...itís interesting, different from other IIPAs Iíve had recently, but doesnít totally come off for me.

Nice, but Iíve had better. Is hoppy, but not less so or more so than much else, leaving it kind of in the middle of the pack.

Quite a beefy IPA. Something in the Arrogant Bastard realm. It was cloudy amber and somewhat sweet and malty at first... Good hoppiness that finishes very bitter and dry. I like it.
