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

Bottle from georgios in Chicago. Pours hazy amber with off white lacing. Nose Is sweet hops. Taste is a lighter ipa and well balanced. Almost like a pale ale in taste. ---Rated via my mouth

ihrabe (7) - Kansas, USA - JAN 21, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2018 A solid double IPA, especially when factoring in the price point (costs as much as Lagunitas’ regular IPA in my area).

Golden pour with a thin white head. Aromas of pine, resin, tangerine, apricot and maybe a little mango. Taste is very balanced with fruity notes, hops, piney bitterness and a smooth malty backbone. Medium body with a thick mouth feel and moderate carbonation. Nice to go DIPA.

Pours orange, amber, golden with a white head and good retention with a nice aroma of citrus and hops. Tastes of malt and bitter hops with a citrus, lemon finish. It’s mostly dry with some booze. It’s also medium bodied with lively carbonation. Although the malt tastes dry, it’s caramel character balances well with the bitter hops.

Bill Becker (2012) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - NOV 30, 2017
From Jul 2008 This pours a clear gold with a 1 finger head of foam. Not exactly a big head of foam for a vigorous pour but it has some staying power and there's some nice lacing. The smell is a nice balance of caramel malt and citrus and piney hops. Nice nose. The taste is also balanced. Plenty of malt for the malt lovers, plenty of hoppiness from flavours of grapefruit and some pine for the hop lovers, and put them together and you have a finely balanced DIPA. There's also some fruitiness here. Very nice. It borders on a full mouthfeel...silky smooth, and the alcohol is nicely hidden. It finishes on the sweet side but not overly so as there is a good kick of grapefruit right at the very end. Pretty easy drinking as well. This is a very well made example of the style and I can recommend it with no qualms.

Bottle from Alko, Helsinki Pours cloudy dark amber with a small fluffy white head. Light aroma of caramel, hops and citrus. Taste is initially sweet: caramel and malts with sour lingonberry, pine and slight citric notes. Even a trace of oak barrel can be spotted. Sweetness eventually gives in to sturdy bitter hoppiness, with a surprisingly smooth long finish. Medium to full bodied, smooth mouthfeel, low carbonation. Very enjoyable Double IPA with kind of a special own flavor, building more upon caramel than citrus.

Nice hoppy IPA. Much more malty caramel and less citrus than many other IPAs, and can taste the 8% ABV. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

balkhawk (10) - - NOV 3, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Rotted unripe orange & rubbing alcohol. Apricot. The fruit's failure to stand out and little-to-no maltiness leaves not much to stand in the way of the taste of alcohol. As this is my first Lagunitas brew, and 8.2% and 72 ibu's is right in my wheelhouse, I truly wanted to like this one, but found nothing nice to say. I reckon it'll get you drunk.

nogva (87) - NORWAY - OCT 8, 2017
Pours a deep amber with a modest head that leaves only a thin lacing. Aroma is fruity with lots of citrus (mainly orange), pine and grass. Medium body, slick feel, soft/avg. carbonation. Taste starts off dry with lots of hop resin, and rounds off with zesty citrus and some caramel. Long and bitter finish, but it's still nicely balanced with the alcohol really well hidden.
