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

From bottle. Orange with small ring of head. Nice fruity hop aroma with a caramel malt backbone. Taste is similar, well balanced. Decent

Bottle. Orange with white head. Hoppy as all get out. Bitter too. A pretty good IIPA.

Crompt (122) - York, South Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Well rounded DIPA and one that I would drink again. Very bold with lots of citrus and hops. Smooth and easy to drink for the ABV.

RyanK (265) - Rhode Island, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Pours a murky, unfiltered gold with a white foam head that head that stays on the top of the glass and a decent amount of carbonation, looks good. Smells sweet in hoppy, with some spicy fruit making up the sweetness. Taste actually is lacking on hops and is more malty. Bitter, but also with a sweet and yet spicy cherry flavor. I can taste the alcohol and as well and the boozy taste really is prominent and finishes on the palate. Not so great, but not horrible.

thicksuds (449) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Solid pour, lots of suds, smells fruity. Very fruity and sweet, with a nice hop kick and bitter finish. Tastes similar to other lagunitas ipas, abv not detectable. I think this is solid, basically a souped up abv of their standard IPA but very solid for sure. Not quite a top tier dipa but close.

Almost an imperial ipa. Very hoppy to the point of overwhelming,and I am a hophead. Nice hoppy aroma, not much of a head with little lacing. Probably not one I would return to often. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PD4Ever (109) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAR 25, 2012
12oz bottle poured into tulip glass. Julian code bottle date puts this at January 3rd. Aroma: Wow, lots of aromas packed into this one: Peaches, mango, cherries, floral hops, resin, raisins. Appearance: amber, clear, very little head that faded quickly. laces glass nicely. Taste: Medium sweet and medium sour. very little bitter. sour aftertaste Palate: Medium body and slick/thin texture. Carbonation is average. FInish is sour and hardly bitter. Aftertaste fades quickly. Overall: Expected more from the flavor because of the amazing aromas. Still very tasty though. Aftertaste is almost non-existent. Feels like its missing something. Definitely can drink this faster than most other 8.4% beers. Will pick this up again in the future. Not as good as the Bells Two Hearted or Hop Stoopid but still enjoyed this one.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2002
I feel this is overrated. A good hopy taste, but not quite the IPA that it could be. A success, just not an amazing beer.

only moderately hoppy compared with other IPAs Iíve had as of late. flavors of alchohol and light malt - a fairly robust beer. floral nose. balanced on the dry side. good beer.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 17, 2002
Strong sour-apple hops aroma. Nice citrusy (grapefruit mostly) flavor with a heavy bitter kick to it. I did not detect the high alcohol content in the flavor or the aroma. Typical hazy orange color that Iíve come to associate with strong American IPAís. The finish left a crisp acidic feel on my tongue.
