COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our unique version of an ancient style. A style as old as the ocean trade routes of the last centuries Great Ships. Not as old as the equator they had to cross twice enroute, nor as old as the 10,000 or so miles of Di-Hydrogen Oxide and Sodium upon which they sailed, but older than the Circulithium-4 Lentloid that binds the Lupulin Quartnate onto your taste buds. Weird. Think about it. Now stop. OK, go again, now stop. Think again, and stop. But we digress. Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts, this redolent ale will likely float your boat, whatever planet youíre on.

Orangish in color with a decent head. Hoppy smell with floral and citus notes. Flavor has the same with some grassiness. The beer seemed like it was laking in something though.

UPDATED: MAY 9, 2008 On Tap at Tankís Tap Room (Carrollwood, FL). Draft pours a hazy golden orange with a decent sized foamy head. Pungent aroma of citrus, pine, and hops. Very hoppy flavor with a nice aftertaste. Subtle hints in the flavor also remind me of tea leaves.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber-orange with a moderately sized and lasting white head. Aroma is fresh citrus, mainly orange. Flavor is fresh citrus up front, with moderate bitterness, moving to some sweet caramel maltiness, a bit of grassiness, and a more earthy bitter hop finish. Well balanced but still pretty hoppy. Pretty good.

Most Lagunitas brews are quite good, but this one I found very lacking. Iím not sure if I got a bad batch or what but this is more like an average amber rather then an IPA. The nose is almost non-existent save for a mild hop aroma. For an IPA this beer is quite weak. Like I mentioned, itís like an amber rather then an IPA. Burnt carmel and toffee dominate over the hops. From reading other reviews Iíve come to the conclusion that either the recipe has been tinkered with because of the hop shortage going on at the time of this review, or I just got a bad brew. Iíll try again in the future and re-rate if needed.

On tap. Kind of orange with an off white head. Nice strong fruity hop aroma. Also a strong hop flavor with a little bit of malt. Iíll have this again, itís pretty good.

Nice copper/amber pour with white head. Strong aromas of hops, pine, and citrus. Hops and citrus to taste overall. Very solid IPA from Lag. I could drink this one all night long.

Pours orange with off white head. Aromas of pine and grapefruit. The flavor starts sweet and hoppy and finishes malty. A decent IPA.

asedzie (677) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with moderate dense beige head, some lacing. Aroma has mild pine, very slight tropical fruit - esp. mango, sticky toffee. Flavor is bombarded with hops - fruity, flora, mild pinel, lightly peppery, moderately bitter. Distinctive Lagunitas toffee malt flavor throughout. Bitterness lingers long in finish. Archetypal west coast IPA.

TAP@ Maxies? in Ithica. I like this IPA. Itís tasty and pretty true to style. Lagunitas beer has a distinctive taste to it somewhat like DFH. Itís one of those breweries where you could recognize most of their beers if you were blindfolded. Dogfish Head is like that for me too. Does that make sense?? Does anybody else feel that way about any beers? Anyways, this is a good IPA that is easily found here in NY.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle. Small ivory fizzy head that mostly diminished, spotty amount of lacing, mostly transparent, and visible carbonation. Nose was mildly malty, sweet, and citrus hops. Flavor was malty, some caramel, hoppy but not overly so, citrus-grapefruit. Fairly smooth mouthfeel and light-mediumm body. A nicely balanced IPA and one that I enjoyed because it was not over-the-top hops since I am not a hophead. Would drink this one in the future and worthy of a try.
