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 you’re on.

Bottle. Aroma of piney and floral hops, some citrus. Flavor an interesting concoction of all the luscious hop notes and some nicely rich caramel malt. Rich toffee notes really do wonders to accent all that pine. Maybe not as powerful as other IPA’s, but an interesting take that definitely floated my boat.

LilBeerDoctor (3581) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange/amber with a huge, creamy white head. Aroma and flavor of piney, bitter hops with some citrus, salt. Good, chill, and refreshing. This really hits the spot after 6 or so glasses of super sour lambics on a 90 degree day sitting outside in the heat. I would try it again in other conditions, of course.

mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Lagunitas India Pale Ale is a deep amber color with a perfectly formed orange head. The aroma is soft and mossy. The taste is very clean with a great bitter hop base and quick finish.

Rune (10006) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle at Zum Biergarten, Copenhagen. Thin, white bubbly head over a brown-orange body. Malt-fruity aroma. Bitter orange tones in flavour with a bitter malty ending. Moderate palate. Good drinkability, but a bit one dimensional for an IPA (30.05.2008).

NMC01 (70) - DENMARK - JUN 8, 2008
Nice IPA with a lovely malt profile. The hoppy ending is less coating and crispy that I expected for an american IPA. Rather big flaked sediment blurred this and made the appearance less nice though. Refreshing IPA with a decent - or should I say "adequate" - alcohol burden.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2008
sample on 6/5/08, rating from notes. pours a golden color with a decent white head. huge hop profile on the nose... a little disappointed that this didn’t carry through all the way to the finish. however, it is a solid IPA that is very drinkable - and under 6% making this a great session beer. the palate is typical of a generic American IPA. Medium body, average carbonation... and a good bitter finish. Just wish those hops came through more.

can8ianben (1446) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2008
A mild yet tasty offering. It’s not too overwhelming that a rookie IPA drinker couldn’t handle it. Mostly sweet, with a finishing bitterness that balances everything out. Orange in color, a thin white head.

ChainGangGuy (4657) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Appearance: Pours a crystal clear, yellow-orange body with a full, foamy, white head. Smell: Pale maltiness along with notes of spice, pine, and ruby red grapefruit. Taste: Lightly sweet pale malts with a hint of spent grain. Spicy, piney, citrusy hop flavors. Medium bitterness. A final taste of caramel. Finishes with a light bitterness. Mouthfeel: Just barely medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A fine little American IPA, it delivers pretty much what you’d expect from it.

Skeegle (566) - Maryland, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Very good IPA that seems to have both floral and pine and citrus hops to it. It is bitter enough to be an IPA but not enough to be a particulaly brutal one. Very smooth like a good bitter. Pretty simple actually, but very good none the less.

nick76 (4336) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2008
The aroma is malty with caramel and pine/citrus hops. The appearance is amber with a good head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. I really like this one.
