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.

Sampled on tap. I found this to be mediocre for a west coast IPA. Although I do like other offerings from Lagunitas. Dark amber in color, thin head and no lacing. Smell is very malty with only a hint of hops here. Flavor is fairly blanaced with a moderate bitterness and spicy hop note. Light to medium bodied. I’ll pass on this one in the future, there are so many other better options for the style.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Bottle: Good west coast IPA. Lots of bitter citrus and grapefruit hops in the aroma. Cascade hops dominate the taste, nice and citrus/grapefruity yet crisp taste. The caramel malt provides a consistent base to the high levels of hops. Not amazing, but a very solid example of this style.

I had this at the Great Arizona Beer Festival in Phoenix. Very nicely hopped and likely one of the better beers I had that day.

Bottle. Dark amber beer with a big off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with a few other fruits thrown in. Malt/caramel backbone with a grapefruity flavor. Bitterness tingles at the end. Medium body. Dry finish.

steview (1018) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 23, 2004
from the bottle into the duvel tulip glass / thanks kevin! / this is weird. a little bit soapy, floral, big biscuity sweetness with a little lemon twang. a great sample, but nothing more. better than stone ipa, i think it is. i wish had a bar with just a bunch of IPAs on tap. yum!

Shag (2584) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2004
This poured a dark orange into the PBR sniffer glass. The smell is off, it smells like wet laundry hosed down with Orange Clean. It tastes flat with only a slight amount of bitterness. Its mostly sour and has a sort of chalky aftertaste. The palate is a bit thin on this. Not too impressed.

Kevin (2048) - New Mexico, USA - SEP 17, 2004
bottle. pours an amber witha light tan head. very sweet malty aroma that has hints of hops. this is a nice pale ale, but the hops are understated. leaves a sweeter malt flavor. finish is also sweet with just a hint of hop flavor. if this was labeled as a pale ale it would be great, but as an IPA it is mediocre at best.

(draught) Amber with off white head. Mild hops aroma. Bitter. Hops flavor in the finish. As it warmed the finish became a bit sweeter with more citrus.
