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%!

chickenflea's rating

chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - FEB 6, 2010
12-0z bottle. Poured a beautiful golden amber with a touch of cloudiness. Thick off-white head. Not billowing but persistent. Left plenty of lacing on the glass. Bold aroma carried pine and citrus. Rich malty flavor with notes of honey. Hops came on strong but the lingering maltiness balanced it well. LONG finish. The flavor lasted and lasted. Rich and sticky on the palate, too. This is an excellent and substantial brew that satisfies those that crave hoppy goodness yet want something creamy and substantial. Drinkable as far as a double goes! An excellent brew.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2017 Rotted unripe orange & rubbing alcohol. Apricot. The fruit's failure to stand out and little-to-no maltiness leaves not much to stand in the way of the taste of alcohol. As this is my first Lagunitas brew, and 8.2% and 72 ibu's is right in my wheelhouse, I truly wanted to like this one, but found nothing nice to say. I reckon it'll get you drunk.

Pours a deep amber with a modest head that leaves only a thin lacing. Aroma is fruity with lots of citrus (mainly orange), pine and grass. Medium body, slick feel, soft/avg. carbonation. Taste starts off dry with lots of hop resin, and rounds off with zesty citrus and some caramel. Long and bitter finish, but it's still nicely balanced with the alcohol really well hidden.

Drunk 1 year after tap. Golden almost amber with a light white head. Grapefruit, caramel, hoppy and piney aroma. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter (not a lot of bitterness) with notes of grass, caramel and som hopps and with a liqourish finish.

Nevalainen (835) - FINLAND - SEP 10, 2017
Clear orange color with long lasting white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mango. Taste is sweetish with bitter notes and long lasting bitterish finish. Well balanced and easy to drink. Very good ipa.

pappabear (16) - Granbury, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2017 Pours a Golden orange color with light head. Smells of citrus, and hops. Drinks super smooth with a slight bitter/citrus after taste. Can't believe it has an ABV of 8.2 %. Bought 1 in a mix six pack and I'm sad I didn't just buy 6 of these. My new favorite IPA.

Stefano (2034) - Thisted, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2017
Orange color beer with an huge frothy beige head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, and a some floral notes. Flavor is citrus, biting pine and lots of grape fruit.. Medium to heavy palate.

jinroh (2267) - ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2017
Pours nice golden, even a bit of amber Quite clear and not very carbonated - nor with its of foam. Aroma is nicely hoppy, some clean sugar feel to it, not stuffy but dry and slightly grassy. Well balanced, feels like a quite light beer to drink although it has some abv packed away. Tastes dry, balanced between sweet medium body and lots of hop bitterness. At the same time hops are not too bitter, not astringent but just about right. Quite nice one, feels as Lagunitas should feel like.
