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.

12 oz bottle. Pours out clear amber, with a fluffy, two finger tan head that lasts and lasts. When it finaly does start to recede, it leaves rings of sticky lace.
Aroma is sweet malt up front, with some grapefruit and orange oil as it warms.
Flavor is lightly malty, around some citrusy hops.
Finish is mildly bitter.
Nicely balanced, will definately buy again.

Hop aftertaste that tastes good at room temp, thatís what makes a good product. I highly recommend this brewery.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2005
Poured a clear copper color with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus grapefruity hops and fuity sweet malt underneath. Malt at front and back, before the moderate sized bitter finish, with grapefruit rind running down the center. Medium bodied. Didnít expect this to be so good when I picked it up.

Pours light brown with a nice white head. Aroma is fruity hops. Taste is full of hops with a great malty back to it. Full mouthfeel. Somewhat piney. A great IPA.

This one is unique. Itís not like itís west coast brothers...this IPA has a different malt profile and hop character than your typical west coast style IPA. Maybe this has more English IPA style to it...I need to try more of those. The aroma is malty with a bit of alcohol coming through. Taste is much the same...toasty malt and good hop flavor. These hops are all flavor and no bittering or aroma...to bad so sad. Still, this in an IPA thatís on my regular "BUY" rotation.

chilehead (186) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Deep copper color with a light head. Bit fizzy on the mouth. Nose has some prunes and lots and lots of hops. Mouth also very hoppy, bit bitter. Not very balanced, but as Iím a hop head, still quite good.

I do like this beer. I cannot say what makes it more appealing the more i drink it. Maybe theyíre getting better all the time. Nice Hops... maybe just the right amount on some days. Wouldnít do on a heavy flow day though. Viva le hop!

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Nicely balanced but surprisingly small for a Lagunitas and surprisingly small for a west coast IPA. The right flavors are all there, but it lacks the intense bitterness, intense citrus, intense pine I expected ... but it looks great, with a wonderful creamy mouth. Enjoyable.

Pretty orange with a nice head. Interesting flavors ranging form carmel to fruit. Has a great hoppy finish.
