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%!

fiulijn (19577) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2006
Amber color; generous and creamy head. Nice aroma of malt and hops, some fruits and resins. Good malty body, with a light liquorice taste, and an interesting bitterness, without being exaggerated; the hops are quite resiny; in the final the bitterness raisies. Mild emotions.

Bottle at Block Party. Pours clear copper with a medium, white head. Bit hop aroma with sweet citrus and grass. Flavor has a nice, sweet malt profile followed by heavy, bitter hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with lip-smacking bitters and light, bready malts. Solid.

Gravity dispense at GBBF 14, day 1, 12/08/14. Lightly hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is pine coated, candied fruit peel, bitter tropicana, grapefruit, tangy orange, ripe citric peel. Taste comprises bitter grapefruit, pine, candied fruit peel, sweet licks, mango. Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close peppered with hop bitterness. Decent, likely better on keg Im sure, a touch sweet at times but dirnks well for 8%+

harrisoni (17457) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2009
Bomber from Barley Wine in Copenhagen. I had been craving something hoppy all evening and finally I get around to opening this. Clear copper amber colour with a lasting ivory head. Big syrupy piney hoppy nose. Spicey hop with some kind of tangeriney citrus fruit too. Id been saving this for 5 months to have on a special evening when I could really appreciate it and you know what? It hasnt let me down. I love this brewery and this is another more than solid beer. They just take the styles and do it so much better. Just so remarkably fresh in its flavours. I mean I love the pale ale and this is just as good. God I love the hops on this. But the mouthfeel is deep and full as well. Really good carbonation. Beats stuff like Great Divide in my opinion. Less malty syrupy and more on the hop side without being stupidly hoppy. No alcohol unpleasantness at all. Bit of heat on end, but not excessive. The pale ale I think is perfect. This is almost as good but not quite as the pale ale I would drink all night, but a bomber of this is probably sufficient, but I would still want a bottle every night. Exceptional. Its the mouthfeel that I just find so good. God that really is hoppy. Just what I wanted. Im burping hop. Lovely. The carbonation is both soft and insistent at the same time.

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle, 22oz. (RBNAG 07) An orange-golden, slightly hazy beer, poured with an off-white head. Sweetish nose with all the joys of American hops dominating. The same goes for the flavor, lots of pine, resin, citrus and fruityness, as well as a lot of sweetness, but far from overpowering the hops. Full body, and so hoppy it almost feels a bit astringent in the mouth. A lovely beer, but maybe a bit too hoppy, meaning that it is more a hop juice than a beer. (071103)
