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!

22 oz. bomber. Poured a bright orange/gold with a small white head. Aroma could almost have been grapefruit juice - citrus, citrus, citrus. Flavor had a very nice hop bite, but little else. I almost felt like it was an American macrobrew with a hop finish. Fairly tasty, easy to drink, but I didnít think it was anything special.

This is an example of my ignorance. I was looking for a funky saison-esque type IIPA in this due to the name but got none of that. Nice beer although kind of standard fare with the only big difference in flavor or taste that I gathered was the forward presence of grassiness existing right along with the bitter citrus (no floral or sweet citrus here at all). Mouthfeel is great though, with the carbonation only detectable when you swallow. The rest of the time it has a weighty simple syrup feel. Nice beer, and very drinkable for the style. Thanks Lagunitas. 2009 22oz.

Tap @ Porkyís - San Leandro: Dark gold color with a white head and sticky lacing. Super hoppy aromas of the farm like wet hay, pine, light juniper and white vinegar. The taste is super hoppy - hay, fermaldyhyde and the strong alcohol taste rises up through the mouth and into the nasal cavity with a slight burn. It has a great bitter aftertaste and not as sweet as some 2IPAís.

This poured a golden to copper color with a moderate white head. The aroma contains some perfume, peaches, and oranges. The flavor contains some peaches, oranges, and pine. Upon first taste I thought this wasnt that bitter however the finish is extremely bitter. Good malt profile to this one as well. Overall a good IIPA!

Cirrhosis (1283) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 16, 2009
Pale shiny copper body with a massive long lasting tan cap. Yum yum that be one tasty aroma. Ginger ale, pine, grape fruit, lime. Daa so many smells so little time. Taste is so very bitter and so very clean. So many hops!!!! Rich roasted malts are very nice but the hops are just kicking there ass. Pine, lime, some peach, a touch of caramel I could go on for a while with the tastes My burp just tasted like gin and tonic. Brew has a sweet start with a intense bitter finish. Excellent beer!!

intense aroma of grapefruit and lime. appearance is a shockingly plain golden that defies the wildness inside. i could keep my nose jammed in the glass for a good long time. flavor almost stands up to the nose -- more citrus, the bitterness practically burns. there are lots of good IIPAs out there, but few can provide this kind of aroma -- and thats what pushes this into the upper echelon.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2009 Pours hazy golden-orange with minimal head. Nice citrusy aroma with a bit of sweet fruitiness and slight caramel notes. Flavor is abundantly hoppy and resinous, with tons of pithy grapefruit, lemon, and orange notes. Nice dry finish. I havent been overly impressed with Lagunitas in the past, but this one is very good.

Aroma of citrus, peach, caramel, grapefruit. Background smell of earthy hops. The appearance is a orange color, true to the style, a little on the lighter gold side. The flavor is a hop explosion, mainly citrus hops, but also a solid malt backbone, caramel, fruits. The finish is a mix of fruity sweetness and citrus hops. Like a mix of peach and grapefruit. Thin/medium mouthfeel, a little oily. Excellent IIPA all around.
