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

Lighter copper,. thin head. Nose is fruity pine, plenty of caramel,cotton candy. Flavor is bitter caramel, some dusty malt, orange/lemon. Some caramel in the very bitter finish.

Whoa!!!!!!! This stuff is heavy and a little too heavy for my taste. It wears me down; it tastes good, but be careful cause this will create regrets in the morning. Citrusy hops with unfiltered yeasts, tates sweet and well balanced, but wears down the session drinker.

If you like this style you will easily enjoy this drop. Colour wasn’t that flash to me but that is ok, hops are all you notice - a little more malt for the backbone would be nice, alcohol was good, so this was easily drinkable but not outstanding.

Mostly a sweet malt aroma, a hint of hops peaks through the orange colored beer. Flavor is a sweet caramel malt blast, some malty fruitiness, followed by piney and peppery hops. This is a pretty heavy brew because of the pronounced maltiness. Not too resiny, although a peppery bite hangs around for a minute. Not my favorite IIPA, but a nice beer nonetheless.

Rated 3/8/07: Was able to get a couple 12 oz bottles from one of my regular stops. While I find this to be a nicely crafted IPA, it doesn’t appeal very highly to me. Hearty hop presence but they seem to act more as a bittering agent thus lacking in the flavoring department. Thick golden copper pour with a one and a half finger head and thick lacing, looks solid. Thicker mouthful than the standard IPA it came across as chewy which I liked but the finish is a touch soapy. Aroma is bitter with a lackluster citrus scent, malt is bready. Flavor is pretty good but like I said before I look forward to a more floral citrus bouquet in my IPA’s, this one is malty and bitter. Resinous and thick I like the malt content but long for more grapefruit and pine flavors.

Golden coloured with a white head. Grapefruit and a bit of pine like aroma. The tatse is mostly hops but they aren’t huge and explosive like I would expect an IIPA. There is some good bitterness though. Overall pretty good, but not great.

[Bottle, thanks Marsiblursi] Pours reddish-amber with a small white head. Somewhat fruity, and hoppy taste. Taste is citrusy with strong hops. Pretty average.

Pours a bubbly copper with a thin white head. Fruity, hoppy aroma, some grapefruit and malts. Tastes od sweet malts, cinnamon and mild hops. Not as hoppy as I’d thought, especially for a double IPA. Very bitter aftertaste, but it stood out more becuase the huge hops werent there to back it up. Definitely has a big malt presence and was slightly sweet on the palate. Needs a little more crispness. This would be a decent regular IPA, but for a double it lacks firepower.
