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.

Pours a light copper colour with a nice thick head. Nose is grass and pine hops. Taste is biscuit malt with nice piney bitterness.

Bottle Wetherspoons. Hard to review this as the bottle was straight from the cooler on Hogmanay. As far as I can tell there is lots of grapefruit. My now freezing tongue tells me it's sweet with a bitter finish and the overall impression afterwards is, bizarrely, Special Brew. Surely not! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Golden IPA with a strong hoppy flavor and a bit citrus. Heavy carbonation with a lot of lace. The slight bitterness makes this one very enjoyable.

At the recruiting Sergeant in Horstead. Goes into my top 3 of all time. A strong, hoppy, citrusy, solid IPA

Clear golden colour. Has a very strong hop aroma. Rather piney, even skunky. The flavour Is similar with an overall taste of strong oily, resinous hop. Lacks balance. Feels slightly rough and unrefined as a result.

Another very good brew from Lagunitas. One of the best IPAs I have had. Nice deep deep golden color, with a somewhat metallic aroma. Nice hoppy flavor with some bitterness on the aftertaste. A Little Sumpin Sumpin is my favorite from this brewer, but this is pretty good.

Swaroga (1545) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 23, 2014
Very creamy and smooth IPA. Lots of tropical fruits in the aroma. Some little cheesecake and candied fruits. Moderate bitterness. The beer is all about smooth mouthfeel and a clean aroma. Nothing off or extreme about it. Could be found boring but it’s a perfect IPA for beginners. Well done.

My favorite Lagunitas beer. One of the best IPA’s available, IMOP. I was introduced to this beer at a local sports bar. Very good out of a bottle. Heavenly on tap. Best beer in the house!

Nice light amber color with medium white head. Hints of pine and mild citrus on nose. Malt is prominent and bready. Very drinkable and refreshing. Surprising amount of variation between bottles in the case - some are pretty great while others are mediocre.
