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%!

My second Lagunitas brew....and again Im fully impressed. Clean, cereal taste, mostly clear light pale yellow body. Similar to their Kil Ugly Radio IPA....not quite as Hoppy. Full bodied, tasty.

22 oz bottle from bottletrek.com. All I can really say is, "damn good". Pours orange with a creamy head and tons of sticky lacing. Big citrus and floral aroma with a subtle maltiness. Flavor is very similiar, but very well balanced between malt and hops. Lasting bitterness, oily mouthfeel and alcohol is barely detectible. This is a awesome West Coast IIPA. Must be put in your regular rotation.

Bomber: Aroma is a nice citrus hop texture, not as much as I expected from a double IPA. With a pine note lingering together makes the actual scent of this brew really well balanced in my opinion. Appearance is a light copper with a foamy white head that has some retention. Taste has got a pungent hop front. Big on hops, not much malt characteristics, with a pine note and fruity undertones, and a real earthy flavor to this brew. Palate is bitter with the hop texture coming through. Overall, Its OK. It really did not impress or dissuade me at all. Its kind of just OK, above average, but just OK.

Great color in the glass with nice head retention. Nose is subdued but present. Well balanced between malt and hop. Nice every day I.P.A.

Aroma of spiced hops. Palate is thin. Little or no head. What I like about this beer is its fairly clean, and has a solid citrus-herbal hop presence. But what I dont like is the body is a little watery, and the finish seems off to me. Its almost a weak sweetness/bitterness that reminds me of eating an orange after brushing my teeth. Ive noticed this is some microbrew IPAs. I would like the beer to be a little more solid, with better body, especially if its supposed to be an IIPA. But overall, I find it enjoyable and pretty tasty.

RSRIZZO (1977) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2007
Had this beer on 7/27/2004. Aroma is fresh and full of hops. Color is a deep orange/gold with fair carbonation and a nice tight head. Taste is bitter, sweet and almost fruity. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a smooth feel and a mild bite. Finish comes in with a sweet malt flavor that has a fruity flavor to it. Then a sharp bitterness with a mild hop flavor floats in on the end. As you drink a bit more of it the fruit flavor fades and the bitterness seems to build. Well balanced but it needs a bit more hop flavor.
