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.

decent, the malts are nice but the hops kinda fall flat which is what they wanted to go on. still its some malts character with caramel flavor. enjoyable.

purduebacchus (39) - USA - JUN 2, 2008
Pour is amber, piney aroma that is the high point of this beer, after the first sip the beer becomes an amber ale, sweet and malty with a light hop flavor. relatively heavy mouthfeel

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Pour is medium golden with long lasting white fluffy head. Aroma is of fresh crisp hops and some pine. Flavor is up front hoppy with some malt aftertaste. Iím guessing that with all of the different hops and malts used in this, it must have been made with all of the extra ingredients from the brewery. I canít see a reason to add that many ingredients to a beer. There is no possible way for someone to distinguish each flavor in the beer. It is actually a physical impossibility because our tongue is not that sensitive. Still a good beer. May buy again.

On tap at the Map Room in Chicago. A pretty good IPA. nothing to write home about.

Underhook (162) - Lincoln Park, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 A decent IPA. The aroma is really grassy even for an IPA. Overall I enjoyed it, but it didnít have the fully rounded taste that other IPAs like Stoneís has. A pretty plain, average IPA. Iíll probably stick to Stone and Dogfish Head.

Strykzone (6273) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2008
Clear light amber body with a short lived tan head. Not a pronounced aroma but a nice one. It is full of hop with pine and floral notes along with some caramel malt. A big tart hop bite nips the back of the throat at first sip but that quickly fades to a dry bitterness. Grapefruit, grass and floral flavors. 108 varieties of hop and malt?! A good IPA but not quite exceptional.

skeweredalive (5) - Danielson, Connecticut, USA - MAY 25, 2008 does not count
Lagunitas ipa is opaque amber in color and when poured into a shaker, yeilds a thick foamy head. It has scents of pine and citrus that entice your tongue. Once you finally taste it you find that the hops have a nice bitterness to them which continue to follow into the aftertaste. I am still new to reviewing beers but i found this to be one of the best ipaís i have tried so far.

RedSox2004 (1590) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Aggressive pour left a three-finger head above an orange/amber body with lots of rising carbonation. Moderate pine and citrus - grapefruit - hops aromas, but not overpowering. Hops flavors are strong, but immediately countered by a light maltiness. Hops bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, less carbonation than expected.

Madsnp (933) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2008
Bottle. Light amber coloured with a nice lasting white head. Aromas of pine, grapefruit and some sweet malt. Flavour of bitter hops, caramel and more hops.

Aquilo (599) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 Orange-blonde with a thick rocky head. Aromas of citron, pine and spices. Snappy bitter flavor. Very fizzy on the palate. This has been a go-to session beer for me for a while. One of the best Bay Area IPAs for sure.
