COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For those mornings when you have to cut right to the chase, this is the one. Sure to blast through just about anything still lingering from the night before, this mouthful of Hops and huge rich Malt has a gaurantee built right into the name!

Bomber, pours a clear copper color with a thin off-white head. Minimal lacing along the side of the glass. Hoppy aroma is a mixture of grapefruit, pineapple, and honey. Hoppy citrus flavor that also includes an interesting combination of sweet maltiness with a touch of sauerkraut. There is a nice amount of bitterness in the finish but I was expecting even more based on the label’s description of 102 IBUs. Still a very nice selection. The 8% is well hidden.

Tasted this one at the brewery. Great big hop aroma with a huge grapfruit finish. Hearty malt backbone and a good heavy ABV. Hop lovers, this is your beer.

Light red good lacing, very clear. Great aroma. Dominated by cascade. Slightly citrus, and a little piney. Flavour is very citrus, and bitter. The cascade is prominant. Well balanced with a slightly sour finish. awsome IPA.

22oz - Copper colored liquid under white head. The nose tells you all you need to know: punishing hops. Pepper and basil on palate with a ginger like burn on sip. Sweet and spicy, too sweet actually. Sometimes more is just more.

Bronze in color with a lacy head. Citrus taste with a bitter finish. This is fantastic. Chewy texture with a taste that stays with you. Just get it.

22 oz bottle. Clear light golden pour with a moderate off white head. Nice hop aroma, piney, citrusy and strong. Flavor is more of the same, nice caramel sweetness up front with a strong bitter hoppy finish. An exceptional beer.

Really....will it get better than this? I am so glad the guys at Lagunitas decided to make this a regular production beer and not a seasonal. I really don’t see a need to blather on about this as it seems everyone here tends to agree that this is AWESOME IPA.

Picked it up at Armanetti’s in Chicago today. clear, golden orange with minimal head. nose is dominated by the citrus (grapefruit) with some caramel maltiness in the background. Hint of alcohol in the nose, but hardly perceptible. Flavor is well-balanced mix of grapefruit and malts. Has a nice lingering bitter finish.

With great thanks to HogTownHarry for sharing this baby with me. Appearance: Beautiful golden orange with a decent creamy off white head. Aroma: Super fruity, sharp, mangos, pineapple, malt and just juicy hops! Flavour: Wow! Juicy! Seriously hoppy with pineapple, mango, salt, more hops, bitter, citrus with a lovely sweet citrus finish. Nice indeed.

pine, citurs aroma. Pours orange/golden with mid range head. Pine tar hops in the middle. There is a grassy, hay quality near the end, then more hops.
