Sampled at Maxs Taphouse in Baltimore. Pours a clear yellow, gold, rose color with a creamy white, lacing head and tight bubbles. Aroma is sugary and citrus with orange, pine and hop resin. Flavor is similar with lemons, brown sugar, pine and sticky resin. Spicy, bitter, citrus finish. Delicious.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 2008 Strong Ale Fest (Boulder, CO): One of my favorite beers from this beer fest. Bright gold; great head. Very nice malty flavors (sweet caramel and toffee). Wonderful hops (juicy citrus, spicy pine). Hops and malts complemented each other very nicely. Great beer. RERATE, bottle: Not too shabby. Sweet caramel-malt base. Grassy, citrusy hops. Metallic-like burps. Orange in the aftertaste.

ChainGangGuy (4400) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2008
Appearance: Clear, lightly effervescent, orangey-copper body with a small, white head. Smell: Lightly sweetish, citrus aroma with scents of both tangerines and grapefruits. Some background notes of green, freshly-picked garden herbs. Taste: Light pale malts mingled with sharp citric hops and a strong, resounding bitterness. Fairly citrusy throughout. More of those herbs, too. Some slight toffee sweetness struggles and writhes beneath the hops. Tangy, bitter finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Somewhat oily texture. Drinkability: This Double IPA from Lagunitas should please those hop heads out there.

GJF (1267) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 22, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2009 A re-rating here. Not sure about my earlier comments on this. Subtle farmhouse notes? This is a hop powerhouse. A classic double IPA. Earlier: This is nice, but Im not sure Id go with the Double IPA label on it. Has softer, more farmhouse notes to it to me. Plenty of piney, grassy hops to it.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2008
On tap. Poured a slightly hazy amber-orange color with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of piney, resiny hops with some nice citrus. Nice mixture of light caramel malt with strong citrus hops and undertones of pine and resin. Moderately sweet, but nice bitter finish to balance everything out. This is a nice IIPA, I wish we could get the bottles here.

BeerandBlues2 (9997) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2008
Draught at 6th Boulder Strong Ale Festival. Pours clear orange with a small, fizzy, white head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (grain, hay, straw, meal), heavy hops (flowers, grass, resin), average yeast (sweat, earth) with notes of apple and pear. Medium bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - APR 5, 2008
On tap at Marker 20. Lightly hazed amber with a white head. WOW, what a nose... massive perfumey floral hop and citrus, cookielike maltiness. Flavor is more hop goodness, peachy and orangey, floral perfume and sweet sugar cookie. A hop bomb of the highest order that, despite the massive bitterness, is well integrated and deep. Excellent.
