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.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Bottle poured dark amber with a smallish head and spotty lacing. Aroma was malty with very small aroma of hops. Flavor is more citrus than hops, I could use a bit more hops in this beer but it is good and easy drinking.

MadMan (495) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 5, 2005
Taken from notes made during a business trip to San Francisco: Pours reddish golden with initially frothy and quickly diminishing head. Aroma is flowery/herbal but also sweet malt. Flavor is all malt with a solid hop presence. MIldly bitter finish but has a lingering taste. Not the best IPA but good overall. Needs more hops! Well, I wish I had made better notes but I was kind of unprepared. I do not recall it being remarkable in the least.

Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Poured an orange color with little head.. Citrus hoppy aroma. Flavor is of citrusy hops with a little malt.. This one would be better with more hops. Not bad but not great..

obxdude10 (2043) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2009 Very tasty IPA, very well done, deep copper color with a slight orange tint, decent sized off-white head, sticky lacing around the glass, lots of earthy hops in the nose, medium body, very drinkable, great session beer, very well balanced, good malt profile to back up the hops, some notes of pine & earth in the flavors, very dry & bitter, especially in the finish and aftertaste, very good IPA

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - JAN 28, 2005
Pours a golden orange, white bubbly head. Aroma is citrus fruits, hops. Flavor is "easy" and balanced, a piney hop flavor with mint, and lemon. Palate is somewhat smooth and malty. Thanks to Mitch for this Brew, my 300th on RateBeer.

JFGrind (1843) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Hop nose, spicy flavor and medium body. Scores good on the standard India Pale Ale "checklist". With "43 different hops and 65 various malts" I think the brewer worked too hard on an above average IPA.

copper/orange color, head is white, foamy, and somewhat lasting. aroma has notes of citrus, bitter perspiration, sweet toffee malts. flavor has light citrus bitter, light to moderate malts. light to medium-bodied. would be an excellent session IPA. Thanks Mitch!

A nice dry IPA with a very bitter finish. I canít wait for this brewer to start distribution in Florida.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 2004 bottle purchased at Julioís in Westboro, MA. For good old pasteurised, heavily filtered Lagunitas, I will have to give some credit here. First of all, they knew what they wanted. They wanted to expand the market and send a good beer from west to east coast. Thatís cool, and is impressive that they distribute out here in the weak Boston market. Anyways, they pay the price. Itís just a plain filtered golden ale. Hops in the nose recommend that you smell deeper, but itís nothing heavy. Just some moderate hops, no dry hopping it seems. Anyways, it has good flavor, which is probably its best character. Medium body, good malt presence. Spicy, but not really bitter. Light caramel.
Rerate.
2006 bottle. ended up dumping it. Just blandly boring. Cheaply sweet, filtered maltiness is extremely uncomplex. Loose, forced carbonation and a boring c-hop aroma and flavor. Not attenuated enough either. Slight acid on the end.
More simple, bland crap for the palate-lacking from Lagunitas.
