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

really great orange appearance, big huge resinous hop nose. loved it. flavor is grassy and sweet, with a big hoppy finish and some alcohol warmth. velvety texture. very good but a little on the sweet side for me

Excellent, piney, resinous, sticky. Nice hoppy aroma that stays. Long, dry, somewhat better finish.

Smell is malty yeast smell lacking I feel like the citrus hop smell behind a good IPA. Appearance is a nice light to medium orange golden color. Taste starts off multi with a heavy booze flavor followed by a nice crisp citrus hop flavor. The malt boozy flavor lingers on your tongue a bit too long. All in all nice IPA wish it was a little boozy

Hops all the way through. Citrus and floral hop aroma, very hoppy flavor, long bitter finish. IBU 72, OG 1.080 a big IPA, I just wish it had a little detectable malt. At the end of this bottle I didn’t even want to think about hops anymore. medicinal. I understand that an IPA is supposed to be hopppy and bitter but this shows no kind of balance. It doesn’t take much skill to just dump a bunch of hops in the kettle.

Dark tan with a burnt orange glow, crystal clear. Medium white head with find bubbles. A very pretty beer. Spicy, citrus aroma. Full bodied, bitter. Grapefruit, citrus dominate the flavor. Nice malt balance though, some caramel and plum in there. Another winner from Lagunitas at a reasonable price. Here’s to feeling good all the time.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Deep reddish gold pour with a thin, sticky white head. Rich orange and grapefruit aroma, with a sharp hop bite. Caramel, estery sweetness. Taste is malty, bready sweetness up front. Somewhat bitter piney finish, but the hops are largely balanced by the hefty malt bull. Mouthfeel is fizzy and well carbonated. Not my favorite Lagunitas offering, but not bad.

kitschy (326) - Nebraska, USA - JAN 31, 2008
in bottle, thanks to sledge jr. A delightfully hoppy beer with a quick flash of floral, followed by grassy citrusness. palate is excellent, due to fine malt content. Truly enjoyable.

sinkr (323) - Odenton, Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle->tulip: Pours a rocky, white, diminishing head that exhibits good lacing atop a carbonated, clear, amber body. Aroma grains and hops, perhaps with some honey notes in there. Medium bodied, long on the palate, mildly bitter, finishing astringently.

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle. An unclear orange beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and grassy. The flavor is sweet hoppy with a dry hoppy end. Quite simple, but nice. Kind of lacking.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 Great beer, but not what I wanted out of the style. It’s a bit too sweet and not enough bitter in my opinion. Very similar to Hercules, if I remember correctly. Solid none the less. Thanks again to thefatmanrocks for sending this as a surprise, alongside two Double Bastards in a trade.
