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%!

bigben873 (258) - Virginia, USA - OCT 4, 2011
Aroma - Floral hops Appearance - Clear medium amber, very light head Taste - Medium malt and hops. Smooth but not light Palate - Medium body; slight bitter finish Overall - Not quite as smooth and as malty as most Imperial IPAs, but smoother and lighter than a typical IPA. Could get into trouble with this one...

Drunk 1 year after tap. Golden almost amber with a light white head. Grapefruit, caramel, hoppy and piney aroma. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter (not a lot of bitterness) with notes of grass, caramel and som hopps and with a liqourish finish.

Clear orange color with long lasting white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango. Taste is sweetish with bitter notes and long lasting bitterish finish. Well balanced and easy to drink. Very good ipa.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2017 Pours a Golden orange color with light head. Smells of citrus, and hops. Drinks super smooth with a slight bitter/citrus after taste. Can't believe it has an ABV of 8.2 %. Bought 1 in a mix six pack and I'm sad I didn't just buy 6 of these. My new favorite IPA.

Stefano (2021) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2017
Orange color beer with an huge frothy beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and a some floral notes. Flavor is citrus, biting pine and lots of grape fruit.. Medium to heavy palate.

Pours nice golden, even a bit of amber Quite clear and not very carbonated - nor with its of foam. Aroma is nicely hoppy, some clean sugar feel to it, not stuffy but dry and slightly grassy. Well balanced, feels like a quite light beer to drink although it has some abv packed away. Tastes dry, balanced between sweet medium body and lots of hop bitterness. At the same time hops are not too bitter, not astringent but just about right. Quite nice one, feels as Lagunitas should feel like.

Decent stuff. Sweet and bitter combination. Sweet grape fruit im particular.

Bärnstensfärgad med medelstort skum som fäster fint på glaskanterna och ligger kvar länge på ytan. I doften finns massor av torkad frukt, tallbarr och citrus och en liten kryddighet. Smaken är stor, rund och fyllig med skön fruktsötma, citrustoner, tallbarr och en balanserande lång efterbeska. Snarast en DIPA skulle jag vilja säga. Denna gillar jag, sötma och beska i en skön förening, stor och komplex smak.

Bought in at a Swedish Systembolag. God damn Swedes and their cheap prices... Opened with a prestine can of Skruf Fresh Slim White. Pours amber with a tight off-white head. The nose is spruce, tight tight citrusy hops. Medium mouth feel. Sweet hops aroma with spruce, malts, and a fruity grapefruit-feel. This is delicious.
