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

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2008 Re-Rate 3/6/08 citrus and pine hop aroma ... sweet citrus rind, concentrated orange and medium pine resin ... very nice balance of pine and citrus with a good amount of light sweetness ... maybe its the new batch or maybe its the timing of my growing appreciation of craft beer over the last year, but this is better than I remember 1st Rating (4.1) slightly hazy copper, small head...strong hop aroma, citrus and malt...great crisp hoopy taste..very refreshing..great IPA

12 oz bottle from Liquid Solutions pours a hazy copper-orange with a great hop/malt aroma. Small white head. Flavor is a very good balance of wonderfully bitter hops and a lot of malt. I love this IPA.

Copper Coloring with White Ring. Wet Hop, Sweet Malt Aroma. Sweet Malt Foundation...Alot of Wet Hop Flavor..Dry Hopped Aftertaste..Caramel Malt Balances Out the Brew...but Certainly a Hop Lovers Beer.

Stine (1768) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2007
Copper color, some haze. Blood orange aroma, tang of grapefruit. Some crystal flavor layered over further hints of citrus and some musty attic malt taste. Somewhat reserved palate. A quiet outdoor campfire, nicely subdued.

hotstuff (4921) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottle. Very small ivory head that quickly dissipated, virtually no lacing, transparent, visible carbonation, and an orange hue with golden highlights. Malty, some caramel, citrus, grapefruit, hops and a hint of pine. Flavor was lightly bitter, malty hoppy, grapefruit, some pine and the ABV was well hidden. Lingering hoppy aftertaste. Dry and slightly tingly mouthfeel. Light-medium body. Not over-the-top hops. Definitely worth a try if this one comes your way!

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - APR 10, 2007
nice copper pour with small head, lacing lasted for the whole beer. Lots of malt is there, with some nice hoppiness, but more subdued than expected. a little of an alcohol bite, but not too bad. Decent, but could us some balance.

Dang, this is a bitter beer. Wonderful hoppiness and clarity. See through it like a window. The amount of alcohol is great when you want to get a buzz off only a couple of drinks. Great lacing, carbonation bite, and smooth finish with great taste. Had a big bottle a while ago, now picked up a 6 pack- Same as before if not better. Top notch IPA- I only wish I could figure out the recipe so I can make a clone. A hop head delight.
