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.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a beautiful and clear copper color. There’s two fingers worth of off-white colored head, with okay retention and a soft texture. This head leaves behind nice lacing on the glass. S: This starts off pretty malty. Once it warms up slightly, it develops a character of piny, grapefruity hops. The Lagunitas house character is pretty unmistakable - and as always, enjoyable. Their other beers show it off better, though. T: The hop profile here is pretty mild: there’s only a slight flavor of grapefruit and pine. What there is, especially post-swallow, is a decent amount of bitterness. Normally, I’m not a fan of this approach to IPAs, but there’s just enough sweetness to balance out the finish. Since there isn’t much malt or hop flavor here, it’s mainly reliant on the house character of Lagunitas to provide the flavor - and while it doesn’t do a great job, it does just enough to make it solidly tasty. M: While it’s a touch sweet, it has that clean, crisp feel I enjoy in IPAs. The dryness does a good job of counteracting it’s slightly full body. Carbonation isn’t much of a factor either way. O: Solid, but not my favorite Lagunitas offering. Still, its great drinkability can’t be overlooked. It reeks of an old-school IPA with its prominent sweetness and generic hop bitterness - however, it’s good enough where I’d have no trouble putting it down again.

Apariencia: De color ambar y aspecto muy limpio, esta coronada por una duradera espuma blanca. Aroma: Agradable a malta, caramelo, naranja y con algunas notas que recuerdan a pino. Sabor: Amargor es moderado y muy buen equilibrio, encontramos cítricos, melocotón y caramelo.

So that’s what 43 different hops tastes like! To be fair, not bad at all. Classic American IPA. Plenty of citrusey, piney bitterness with a little exotic fruit to match the sweet malt. Good stuff.

Solid ipa, had it too many times. Got some good aromas and balanced very well. Nothing special though, but nevertheless good beer.

Can’t believe I’ve never reviewed this before..... I’ve drank the shit out of this all summer and in the past. Looks like beer. Aroma is nice but mild, malty aroma, caramel, some pine, finishes with astringent. Taste is way better. Lemon, smooth, good stinging carbonation, bitter lingers. Love this beer it has tons of flavor and so easy to drink.

Pours golden, nice white foam. Aroma is fresh. Grassy and herbal. Taste is also aggressively herbal and grassy, hopped up. Feels quite light and not very alcoholic. Classic sample of West Coast IPA.

Keg at Ox184. Yellow pour, slight haze, white head. Hoppy citrus nose. Medium body, sharpish fizz. Bitter and citrusy. Always good.

Draft at the movie theater. Times are a changing. Lovely Ipa, balanced and does not overstay its welcome. Lively carbonation. Better than the movie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from ’Spoons so, naturally, its probably 10 years old. Pours an amber colour with a slight head which soon recedes. Aroma is malty and earthy. Taste is earthy, malty, slight spruce, some herbs, caramel and medium bitterness.
