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%!

Pours clear light amber with a small white head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is surprisingly malty with forward notes of caramel and bread with a pine/citrus backing. Flavor is about the same, medium to quite sweet, light to medium bitter and a bit grassy on the finish.

adster (395) - HUNGARY - SEP 28, 2014
Borostyánkő színe lebilincselő illatokat rejt. Fantasztikusan édes és gyümölcsös, süteménytöltelékes aromák, melyeknél a mangó, a grapefruit, valamint őszibarack befőtt illatjegyei között időzhetünk; mennybéli kezdés bármely komló-fanatikus számára. Vaskos, ragacsos lenyomatú kortyokkal örvendeztethetjük meg aztán ízlelőbimbóinkat, nem mindennapi élmény ez egyiknek sem. Lágy zamatai szétolvadnak a nyelvünkön, szirupos gömböcskékként gurulnak lefelé a garatunkon a kolibriszínű ízmolekulák. Szinte kenhető a test, tartalmas és izgalmakkal teli, likőrben úszó trópusi gyümölcsök hada gyantacseppekkel megbolondítva, és némi gyomorkeserűs jelleg teszi leírhatatlanná az összképet.

ARH (431) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2014
On tap into a mason jar (probably the worst way to present a beer). Muted aromas consisting of mostly bread and citrus with some caramel late. It pours a clear caramel orange color with an oily look to it. A soft, creamy white head retains a thick ring with good surface coverage and an abundant sheet-like lace. It’s a very well balanced medium bitter and sweet, maybe slightly more sweet, but nothing overwhelming - pleasant surprise for a DIPA. It drinks with a viscous texture and a creamy, lightly prickly carbonation and a medium full body. Flavors of toast, ctirus, caramel, and light pine come through on the mouth. It finishes fresh with light citrus zest and pine. These notes are joined by bread crust in the light aftertaste.

This gold colored beer has tinges of red. It has a sweet hop aroma. Nice crisp and full flavor it well balanced and finishes cleanly. It goes down easy. Maybe a little too easy. It could be a problem. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from 22 oz bottle. Pours clear amber color with off white head. Big citrus peel, mango and juniper nose. Oily feel in mouth. Caramel malt ,mango and orange start. Lots of big fruity flavors and finishing with grapefruit zest. Not a lot of lingering bitterness. Another killer brew from Lagunitas.

Poured from the bottle into a snifter. Pours a nice orange color with a small white head. Aroma consists of pine, resin, and citrus. Taste is much the same with an emphasis on the resin hops. Medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a slight sticky mouth feel. Very good beer.
