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

Amazing sweet hoppy aroma. Pure copper color with LOTS of sediment floating suspended in the glass. Strong, sweet hoppy flavor with a smooth and gently sweet finish. YUM!

This is a beer site, and Iím tired of talking about beer the way wine people talk about wine. Who cares how it smells, what color it is and all that jazz. Bottom Line, this beer Rocks! It is truly the gladiator of IPAs in my opinion... Maximus, Maximus, Maximus....Rose petals fall around the 6 pack, and the king...gives the thumbs up!

This is the best IPA I have yet to have! The aroma is just sweet, tantalizing, goodness that embodies all the an IPA should offer, The hop presence is strong, but not too strong, and it hits the pallate like a gentle rolling cascade of goodness. I could swim in this beer.

Bottle 330ml. Masterpiece. Aromas of caramel, grass, butter, a bit of citrus, and a touch of alcohol. Taste is bitter, with balancing maltiness, and very long length. Palate is creamy, and full bodied. Orange, with a frothy white head.

This is my go to beer when I'm looking for a double ipa. The price is fair at $11.99 a 6 pack. (I hope those money grubbing folks at three floyds is reading this, I Am SICK of their 22 oz bottles for $10.99) The alcohol content sets the tone but is not overwhelming. Nice sweet, fruity off the nose. Nice and hoppy. Carbonation is perfect. The alcohol is masked perfectly. I replaced dreadnaught with this beer permanently due to monetary concerns. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 pours a clear light orange color, one and a half fingers of frothy white head. good lacing, head lasts a while. aroma is of strong orange, grapefruit, lemongrass, pine, spruce, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. along with light caramel malts. the taste is again, lots of strong citrusís, including grapefruit, and other tropical fruits, pine and spruce. along with light caramel malts. bitter but not over the top, just a great balance! finishes with grapefruit and pine resins. overall, a very well balanced powerful citrus bomb double IPA!
