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

Very hoppy taste balanced with strong taste of malt and alcohol. I love! They know how to brew a good beer I the US after all.

A bitter, sappy green pine underpining and a resinous, deep hop flower aroma. Slightly chalky, dusty and dry; although high in alcohol content, this ale is easy to gulp.

wow... definitely what an IPA should taste like! strong hop flavor, great color with a thin small head, sharp but mellow at the same time, easily drinkable beer

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2007 Pours a clear orange color with a steady big head: I love it. The smell is worth drooling over: some fresh flowers, orange, tangerine and other citric fruits. Flavor is mostly in line with the hop aroma, soft flower flavor, but when I say that it doesn’t give this beer justice. Great lacing down the glass. There’s something about this beer that makes "MAXIMUS" appropriate.

Very dark cloudy orange, not real hoppy aroma. Head is very dry and hoppy. The beer is also excellently dry and hoppy, but smooth in the finish to not kill your taste buds. Great.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 18, 2007
A dark orange appearance with a beige head. The aroma is full of pine, grapefruit, and oranges. I catch a little perfume in there as well. This wasnt as BIG as some IPAs Ive had which isnt always bad. A well balanced beer with more grapefruit and oranges showing up in the flavor. The finish was quite bitter. Top notch IIPA in my book.

This one’s ridiculously good, mayhaps the best I2PA I’ve had. Definitely better than the Ruination IPA I had the other night, which is 4.3-4.4 quality. Lagunitas has this hop thing down just about as well as Stone.

Into a small glass....When nothing is new,this is my go to beer. Great aroma and taste. Must be ice cold,when warm it all changes.
