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%!
IBU: 72.41

This beer is exactly what they said. If you have had the Lagunitas IPA before, then this is pretty much a hoppier version of the same beer. Its malty and sweet, and dangerously drinkable for 8.5%. The hops and malt are pretty evenly matched. The malt finally gives way to the a slightly bitter hops finish. The heavy malt presence reminded me of the Hop Devil.

Bottle. Pours a dark amber with thin head. Wonderful floral aroma of grape, pineapple, spruce and hops. Taste is maltier and a bit caramel-sweet, dryer, but tasty, finish with quite a sting of alcohol.

BuckeyeBoy (7142) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 3, 2008
Bottle pours out an amber topped with a off white cream head. A very nice aroma of citrus hops. Tast more of the hops along with a little sweet caramel. Very nice brew to drink any time.

Good sweet malt, honey, and hops aromas with pineapple notes. Rose orange colors with a whitish head. Flavors are the same as the aroma with a good balance of sweet and bitter. Mild palate. Fruity and sweet with a good hoppy backbone. Very enjoyable and drinkable.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 26, 2008
22oz bottle. Clear orange-amber with a small creamy head. Fruity and floral aroma with tobacco, mango, grapefruit. Pretty mellow flavor for a dipa, but drinkable as well. Creamy and citric, with light prolonged bitterness. medium body comes off a little thin for the strength. Small bubbles. Not enough flavor for a double for me, but their regular IPA is more drinkable and comes off as hoppier for me too.

smith4498 (3582) - Winter Springs, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Pours orangish color with big, rocky off white head. Citrusy hop aroma. Sweet flavor with lots of hops and some malts to balance it out. Overall a decent IIPA, very good for the price.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Pours orange/amber with no bubbles and a medium off-white foamy head. Nice fresh hop aroma with citrus, mango and peach. Pretty salty stuff with a somewhat weak body. Still the flavor is impressive. Tropical fruits emerge and it gets quite juicy. Some tingle in the mouth from the hops. Not the greatest double... but pretty damn good.

sickassmick (228) - Concord, California, USA - MAR 22, 2008
big nose on this.... very sweet with a side of hops. pour is brown golden with a bubbly head that retains fairly well and laces the glass. The front end on this is sweet, and the sweetness is immediately thinned out by the perfect shot of hops. medium big body and really a not too overpowering aftertaste. I could say that the commercial description makes sense because it is awfully similar to the regular IPA, but bigger. and thats why i gotta say I like it that much more because of it. Beautiful Job. Little too sweet, but easily one of my favorites. If you could find the medium of this and Stones Ruination, Id be all over it.

Hazy orange with a high head. Powerfull aromatic hops all the way through: grape and lemon with some alcohol to notice. Too much Im afraid.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2008
750 ml bottle, RBNAG07. Amber colour. Lightly cloudy. Tall fine-laced light beige head. Oily sweet malty nose. Drying hoppy aroma with a slight medicinal aroma. Smooth texture cut by rich and sharp hops. Bitter hops nicely balanced by sweetish malts.
