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

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.

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

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.

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

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2011 Pours a mostly clear amber with sizable head. Very aromatic - citrus hops - grapefruit, orange - very nice. Very flavorful, and like many IIPAs - very dry and bitter at the end. Quite enjoyable - would gladly purchase as often as I can - cheers!

bottle; amber clear with small off-white head; aroma-pine and floral, some citrus, sweet malt; taste-mild sweetness and carbonation, very good bitterness without overdoing it. Very good double IPA, accessible to all

The hoppy aroma is perfect and I strongly suggest using a sniffer glass to enjoy this. Very strong on taste but balanced, robust is the perfect word. The appearance when first poured is also perfect with a rich white head on a golden platform only problem is the head dissipates quickly. Taste is perfecto for an imperial IPA just the right amount of bitter hops with a bit of sweetness. Full bodied on the palate with a soft carbonated taste and a long finish. A well crafted beer that would par with a steak or a burger.

8/25/16. Bottle. Not my favorite DIPA. Perhaps not a fair comparison but I drank this a night after a Wicked Weed Freak of Nature. Kind of heavy with none of the refined nose or mouth found in the WW. Solid but not a stand out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle, sixer. Cloudy golden pour, vicious chunky head that quickly faded. Very piney aroma, marked orange tones. Smooth and almost like it wants to be a little sweet with a kick in the ass of hops, hops are mostly sticky pine, but short aftertaste, fruity hops tones. Nice and even body. Not at all harsh, just very abrupt and punchy. Indeed, much better than I anticipated.
