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.

nimrod (73) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAY 7, 2008
On tap, dark copper pour. Hoppy, floral, and fruity aroma. Taste was similiar. Can’t remember too much about this brew only that it was not exceptional or terrible. A little too bready and yeasty for an IPA. Drinkable, but nothing special.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Pours an orange color with a fairly thick white head. Aroma is slightly peachy with a bit of grapefruit. Not incredibly bitter but still plenty hoppy. Fruity. Peach and Grapefruit. Creamy mouthfeel. Good. Easy as shit to drink.

CaptAnkeny (15) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Had on tap at the "Hops On Equinox" in Seattle ’06 and in bottles in Portland, OR and Oakland, CA. Best on tap, and one of the best brews/IPA’s available @ HOE in Seattle. In the end, I kept going back for more. Very HOPPY, fruity, aromatic, kicky, etc. In bottles, however, it dropped a notch, but that’s expected. Overall, a very satisfying IPA. Oregon-worthy beer, brewed in or near Petaluma, CA.

roebuck (45) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2008
Decent IPA. Pretty much what you’d expect. Had a great hoppy nose to it. On the palate the hops dies down slightly, but still enough to leave your mouth a bit dry. Reminded me somewhat of the Rogue Juniper Pale Ale. Good for drinking a few on the porch in summer.

tgncc (3036) - Bellmore, New York, USA - MAY 2, 2008
This is a style I’ve come to appreciate a lot more. The aroma is very hoppy, specifically citrusy hops. Some pitch pine odors mixed in. The flavor is very hoppy, and has strong notes of grapefruit. Very refreshing. Thin mouthfeel, and a citrus/hoppy palate that fades relatively quickly.Good overall. (i’m drinking this on the Long Island Railroad, and everybody should be wasted if they ride the LIRR!!)

bfeldmann (1049) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Ho hum. Poured a copperish color with big head lots of noticiable yeasts in there. Aroma was very yeasty and light pine/citrus hops. Flavor was much hoppier then the aroma lots of grapefruit and yeast, just an average IPA.

Suttree (5689) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2008
Coppery orange, small white head. Great aroma - resin, pine, sticky hops. Flavor is, as one might guess, dominated by hops - resiny and sticky, but also nice notes of grapefruit and, uh, more grapefruit? Really hop dominated, and I really liked it. WBF, Raleigh.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2008 Had on tap at McCray’s. Poured to a yellowish gold color, unlike the orange copper I was expecting. The anticipated citrusy nose and flavor were there, but slightly muted, as was the bitterness of the mouthfeel. This all led to a medium length, slightly bitter flavor which was nice and smooth. Not a bad beer at all, but still below other Lagunitas offerings.

GJF (1397) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 24, 2008
Nice straightforward IPA. Rich hop flavor and aroma. I like their Maximus IPA a little more, but I suppose that’s neither here nor there--good beer!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. A slight unclear deep golden colored beer with a fully diminishing near-white head. Fresh fruity and hoppy aroma; sweet grapefruit, tangerines and tropical. Grassy, light piney hops. Notes of peppermint and sweet nutty malts.Taste is not that complex, but has fine distinct bitterness and leaves some likeable flavors of citrus and refined malts. Lasting fruity-bitter finish. Loveable.
