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%!

This is a good DIPA. There isnt much that stands out about it, however. Its overall quality has been evidenced in countless other IPAs. The best thing I can say about it is that it had a slight kick indicative of a higher alcohol level.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2008 Good foamy head at the pour, nice amber color to it, with piny aroma. The hops are there, but I was expecting more from a "Maximus" IPA. Some grapefruit and orange citrus in the flavor, semi-balanced overall with an average finish on the palate. Nothing spectacular but worth a try if youre a hop freak.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2007
Pours a reddish ambery with a light tan head. Aroma is slight citrus, pine and a bit of alcohol. Taste is citrus hops, pine, alcohol and some caramel malt. Nothing meshes well with this beer. The hop presence is understated. That malt doesnt add any real balance to the mix. The alcohol presence is way too high for a beer that is only 7.5% abv. This was a train wreck of an IPA. Glad I only got a single bottle of this.

Cirrus cloudy head, pillowy silk mouth. Nice hops in the nose, great chops in the blows. Drink this sh!t to get sh![email protected]!

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Pours a hazy golden with a small head that leaves adequate lacing. Aroma is very aggressively hopped. Notes of cirus are mostly grapefruit and orange. Chemical odors protrude. Leafy and with prickly alcohol. Flavor is unimpressive and at times annoying: bitter hoppiness clashes distinctly with toasty malts that seem only half extracted, raw. Finishes bitter and moderately dry. Not very good at all. There is a big difference between pleasant hops and nasty bitterness that is crossed over like its unimportant to differentiate between the two. The hops never seem fresh, but the beer undoubtedly is. Extreme hoppiness cant mask these egregious flaws.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Now that is an Imperial IPA! Pours dark tan brown with a frothy head. Has an incredibly strong hoppy flavor and scent. Mouthfeel is smooth and goes down with a little bit of an aftertaste but a good one in that.

Nephilium (1752) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Wow... a nice strong IIPA, big hop nose, light carbonation, somewhat cloudy tan color, with almost no head. The flavor is a nice balance of various hops running across the mouth, jumping down your throat, and having a party. This comes close to the Ruination in its ability to prevent tasting other beers. This is one Im going to drink as much as I can while its available.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2007
12 oz. limited release bottle 2007. Spring like grassy aroma. Hoppy with an exceptional bouquet and bitting bitter finish. Charming IPA in a nice and balanced range for a West Coast.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - MAR 27, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Re-rate; Wow this stuff has taken a turn for the ugly since it went to unlimited release. Sweet and astringent, super piney and resinous. Ugh, I hope they dont fuck up Hop Stoopid when it goes to wide release but Im guessing it will happen.

JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Pours cloudy orange with off-white head. Nice orange citrus aroma with some pine zest. Hoppy through and through with the citrus and pine.
