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.

"Life is uncertain. Donít sip" it says on the label. What a lovely philosophy! The beer itself is very similar to the other lagunitas that Iíve had. Not a lot of carbonation. Itís a pleasant, only slightly bitter IPA. No revolution.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2005 [bottle] Pours great, smells great, and has a nice hop profile as well. Iíd like to see some more sweetness to back the already present bitterness in the brew. Itís good, but Iíll take the Maximus.

Frank (3015) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 10, 2005
It looks like this was bottle conditioned but carefully poured, itís crystal clear and glowing orange w/ a rapidly diminishing head of large bubbles. The nose is wonderful--incredibly floral w/ a pinch of citrus and some bready goodness underneath it all. The flavor doesnít hold up, however--somewhat watery and lacking the sticky sweetness and intense bitterness that make a great IPA. There is an interesting ice tea thing going on though so itís not a total wash.

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
An amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is nicely grassy and hoppy - Cascade clearly present. The flavor is sweet malty with an OK grassyness from Cascade hops, and a dry end.

IHCNavistar (93) - Orinda, California, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle (Pint). Aroma is nicely hoppy, not too strong or weak, and with some pleasant citrus/grapefruit tones mixed in. Pours a medium caramel, similar in color to bourbon. Head is a thick creamy white. Flavor is initially of hops, with some citrus/grapefruit-like hints included. Hoppiness is nicely done, being not to strong, but not too weak. This is a very well done IPA!

heemer77 (5108) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2005
The body is dark orange with a frothy white head. There are planty of bubbles coming up here. The aroma is grapefruit and some caramel. There is also an earthy cherry smell. The taste is carmel and some piney hops with a littel burnt toast. This could use a little balance. There is the very bitter hopping, then some very sweet notes. Not much in between.

joergen (21497) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2005
Bottled. Clear amber coloured with a solid white head. Aroma of hops, pine needles, grape fruit, grass and caramel. Perfumed flavour of grass, pine needles, hops and caramel.

Jeppe (2631) - ōlbutikken, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2005
Fine white head, slightly hazy orange golden body. Dominating grassy and earthly aroma, not very bitter. Sweet fruity notes. Flavor is also fruity with bready notes and an underlying bitterness. Not the most interesting IPA, rather macroish and ordinary.

JK (4603) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 5, 2005
(From a trade with Dark Elf-thanks) A high quality ipa. The aroma starts with a powerful hint of brandy that faded in only a few seconds. Ordinary appearance; short lived head, gold in color. Different flavors all related to hops. There is dry grass and some citrus, with a dry finish.
