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!

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Sampled at the Impromptu Butter’s 6th cellar clearance. Clear orange pour with ring of white head. Massive pineapple hop aroma could not improve in any way. Flavor is full and fruity pineapple and bitter and sweet. This is a phenomal Imp IPA. Great name and terrific price.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours an off-white head with a clover honey color body. Smells like grapefruit. Sweet and fruity hops giving notes of apricot, pineapple, and grapefruit. Very nice.

NDbeerdrinker (166) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours an amber color with a 2 finger white, full head. Aroma is big hops. Taste is floral and earthy hops. Strong hop taste lingers for a while after a sip. Mouthfeel is fairly thick and oily and just right. Exceptional beer.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 5, 2009
Very full and rich aroma, colored dark copper. Rather thick on the palate, but overall decent. Initial flavor includes an explosion of hops, but lingers on the tongue and continues to give more citrus and floral hop character, a really pleasure to drink. Amazing for the price!

Guerde (1280) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2009
(bottle) Pours clear copper with a slightly off-white head that lingers and leaves great lacing. Definitely deserving of a 5. Huge aroma of mandarin orange, cotton candy, caramel, tangerines, and some pine as well. Warming suggests some hints of sauerkraut. Gets a little cheesy and peppery smelling as this warms some. Flavor starts out with a base sweetness of caramel, but quickly switches over to a lot of citrus. This citrus transition is signaled by a sharp spike of juicy tangelo, which then rounds out to a nice lingering grapefruit peel bitterness. Taste would’ve been just mediocre, but that citric spike is really nice. Mouthfeel is medium and the carbonation is spot on. I have to bump the overall score because this is a really good beer, and the low price is unmatched for a beer of this style and size.

baraciisch (2730) - California, USA - APR 1, 2009
Golden in color... Aroma just explodes at you as soon as you open the bottle of floral hops... Flavor is more malty than I expected and is actually well balanced... Finish is mildly bitter on the palate... Pretty decent beer...

markwise (5086) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2009
Thanks kiefdog for the share. This is an enjoyable IIPA. Pours clear amber with a white head. Nose is malt, citrus, floral, and pine hops, and caramel. Tart citrus and assertive pine hops meet flavor at the mouth. Caramel follows the hops and tart grapefruit finishes it off and lingers somewhat. Enjoyable medium-bodied beer.

GodOfThunder (1248) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Pours a bright copper color with a citrus and pine nose. Flavor is more citrus hops, with a slight sweetness. Very good IPA.

haddon90 (1603) - Costa Mesa, California, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear, light copper color with a nice, lacing head. Nice, powerful aroma, with some citrusy and floral hops in the aroma. Smooth, hopsy taste. Goes down really well considering the ABV. Nice finish. Not dry, but you can taste the kick. This beer is a classic example as to why I love Lagunitas.

Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Best bang for your buck. Poured copper with a white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and candy. Sweet hop bite that wasn’t overpowering. Wet finish.
