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.

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.

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

A nice golden/orangey color. Aroma is citrus and piney. A nice hoppy flavor. A good IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2015 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.

Copper colour with thin white head. Heavy hop aroma. Caramel and sweet toasted malt up front. Peppery finish.

Had this one on tap. Surprised by its lack of aroma - other lagunitas beers have such a great smell. Having it on tap, perhaps that is why. Tastes very refreshing without knocking your tongue off with hops. Overall I enjoyed this one very much. This would be a good IPA to convert non-craft beer people. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear copper color. Bouquet of floral hop aromas. Citrus hop flavor. Very smooth, no bitter bite.
