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: JUN 5, 2005 Great beer, but not what I wanted out of the style. Its 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.

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.

Bottle at home. Pours amber with big white head. Aroma is strong hops, citrus and caramel. Taste has caramel, pine, citrus, hay and malts. Pretty nice.

Gold copper amber; smells like "kind bud". It tastes like it too. Fruity. SO west coast. A little paper-like aftertaste, probably from too many hops. Hopheads, feed like Jackals...

tomxcs (321) - California, USA - MAY 13, 2006
This beer looked absolutely beautiful in the glass, red/brown amber, with a nice head and lace. Orange sweetness with lots of citrusy hops, long-lasting orangey bitterness. Fairly well-balanced, fruity but with a subdued hop nose. A little sticky, with a slight alcohol warmth. Thick mouthfeel with a lot of bubbles.

Pours a clear copper dark gold color with huge creamy head. Aroma is citrus hops and spice and a bread malt note. Taste following the aroma well. The flavors are strong and solid. This is one amazing beer leaving solid malt rings all the way down to the bottom of my glass!! And a great price! Its safe to say its the best bang for the buck.

bottle pour. comes out a transparent amber color. citrus/floral hops punch you in the nose! medium bodied when it hits your tongue with a nice mix of malt / hop flavor going down. slightly harsh but definitely some great hop flavor here...

Gets whacked early from the hop smash. Pine and resin. Oily, fruity and a hint of the alcohol but a reasonably soft finish. Good perfume in glass. Like a pot pourri. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lampeno420 (320) - Zeeland, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Nice fresh DIPA, although it wasnt as thick as some, which helps the fresh-ness come through. Lots of grapefruit in the whole bottle. Mild and drinkable through all the hops, which gets it another point or two. Balance is very good.

This is a solid IPA. Very strong hop character along with some citrus flavor. Wow, large head initially then diminishes with good lacing.
