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 pours a bright copper/light orange with an off-white head. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, doughy yeast and faint sweet malty note. Flavor has a moderate bitter opening followed by a nice balance of clean malt flavors and bright citrus hoppyness. Finishes slightly dry with a bit of lemon peel. Moderate carbonation and light, but not watery, mouthfeel. A nice and tasty brew on the lighter side of the typical IPA.

DerWeg (1590) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 ** update rate ** anothe rbottle revealed the peachy tones and quite intereesting if subtle hop profile. Kinda fat but good. Uprate ** Surprisingly ordinary IPA for a West Coast legend. But good. Thin pour and light copper-orange hue, moderate fine head. Lots of hop bitter finish that is a bit one-dimensional, perhaps owing to hops shortage I mused? Good malt body. Citrusy flavors were good, I knocked this back in about five minutes at BeerBistro (at the cost of $2.00 / minute!!)

a very good IPA. Pours out a coppery color with a small beige head. aroma was full of hops and grassy with a bit of sweetness to it. Flavor was very refreshing. It wasnt over the top with hops and had a nice lasting flavor to it. over all a very nice brew.

marcus (9012) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAR 23, 2008
This orange ale poured with a thin beige head. It’s a typical IPA, with plenty of hop bitterness and aroma and a balancing malt presence. There is some carbonation and a bit of citrus in the finish.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle, 22 fl. oz. Pours a light amber beer, with a nice off-white head. The aroma is hops, with notes of herbs and fruits, mainly lemon. Nice hoppy flavor, with mainly american hops. The hops tastes of lemon and grapefruit. Nice mouthfeel and overall a nice american IPA. (#100)

travita (4833) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 14, 2008
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 Tank’s 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 (652) - Houston, Texas, USA - 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. I’m 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, it’s like an amber rather then an IPA. Burnt carmel and toffee dominate over the hops. From reading other reviews I’ve 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. I’ll try again in the future and re-rate if needed.
