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 was pretty standard for a Double IPA, no big surprises. Its a little unbalanced but I knew it would be going in. By the taste I would have guessed it be a regular IPA, not quite thick and sticky enough to be of the double variety. Up against some of the real DIPAs this seems like water.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2011 This will not remove enamal from anyones teeth. Its not that hoppy, quite balanced. Herbal hops. Nice beer, but nothing amazing.

Bosco (311) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Orange amber, quickly disappearing thin head and decent lacing. Citrus peel, resinous, earthy. A bitter wallop up front with even more bitterness on the wash. At 8.2abv and 72.41 I.B.U. this is some serious brew. More great stuff from Lagunitas. $10.99/12oz bottle sixer at Publix Boca Raton Florida.

tasty beer. nothing real special, piney hop flavor, a little sweet at the end. very drinkable for a beer of 7.5%.

Dark golden poor, good head That lingers. Clean scent of pine and grapefruit. Initially bitter, but lightens to good hoppy flavor. The flavor continues to change over time, passing through citrus on its way to a faint and surprising bubblegum at the end. Very nice.

Segunda Imperial IPA que probe, y la que empezo a determinar que este estilo se convirtiera en mi favorito, tiene un intenso aroma, con notas de malta y citricas de lupulo mezcladas en un gran balance. Es una cerveza color ambar claro con buena cabeza que presenta buena retencion. Al igual que el aroma, el sabor tiene un gran balance entre malta y lupulo, anque esta dominado por este ultimo. Una gran Imperial IPA.

Has a beautiful citrus hop bouquet, which is almost immediately smoothed over with some sweet malty notes. Almost seems more of an ASA than IIPA, but whatever you call it, its delicious. Immensely drinkable.

Slightly hazy, dark copper color. Hoppy aroma backed up with a little sweetness. Flavor is the same. Fairly thick and satisfying mouthfeel. Bitterness is somewhat subdued despite 70+ ibus.

Its a hop attack! If you are an IPA fan than this beer is for you plus you get the added benefit of the high ABV. Hops provide a clove, bitter, taste and finishes with a coated dark overtones of grain.

ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2010
This poured a clear golden-orange, with some very fluffy foam, almost reminiscent of rising bread dough. Aroma has some floral hops, along with a faint sweetness. Up front, the floral and citrus-like hops are definitely more present, though they are dempered quite well by the sweet bready malts. Carbonation, while significant, is also very soft to the touch. All in all, this is actually an extremely well balanced double ipa. A sessionable double ipa that will not ruin your palate.
