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.

Aside from having dozens of different hops and dozens of different malts, it’s a good drinking IPA. Clean aroma of grapefruit and citrus. Some mild sweetness. Flavor follows with grapefruit on top and citrus. There’s some sweet finish but not a ton. It’s pretty nice drinking.

Draft to pint glass I can’t believe that I’ve never waited this before. As I was sitting in a bar having one I decided to check rate beer and realize there was no rating. Citrus. Spruce, hops, and some caramel. Clear light amber with a thin off white head, but moderate lacing. Light pepper, pine, spruce, some grains, and caramel. Classic IPA.

I can't believe I've never rated this given how many times I've had it! Amber color with thin cream colored head. Aroma has a bit of caramel malt and a good dose of floral and citrus hop notes. Flavor is similar with some biscuity and caramel malt flavors up front followed by a nice balance of hops. Medium bodied, lightly astringent. Not the hoppiest IPA by any means, but great flavor and extremely sessionable.

Hana @ The Flying Dog, Tukholma. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja aivan hieman sameana, tiivillä vaahtomatolla. Tuoksussa on paljon trooppista hedelmää ja karamellia, vähemmän havua ja makeampaa sitrusta. Maussa vahvimpana on taas havuisuus, kevyemmin löytyy hedelmää, karamellia ja marjaisuuttakin, mutta melko vähän. Suutuntuma on kuiva ja katkero puraisee todella kivasti. Samalla löytyy hyvin täyteläisyyttä. Kuiva, katkera ja havuinen palketti, malliesimerkki hyvästä IPAsta. Hieman enemmän hedelmää , niin tämä olisi ihan täydellinen.

Draft. Clear golden color, scant white head. Aroma of grass and light citrus. Nice balance, but a bit plain.

valpoaj (630) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Tap pour - golden with a small white head. Aroma is very nice and enticing - loads of tropical, fruity hops, hint of caramelized malt, mild breadiness...some pine in there as well - good stuff! Flavor is very good as well - good hop bitterness without being overwhelming - tropical hops dominate, but there is a good piney/forest note as well. Enough malt backbone for a ’single’ IPA to add some balance - I really dug this stuff! Palate is oily and smooth. Lagunitas does it right with this simple, yet delicious (and relatively cheap) IPA - Prosit!

joe19612 (1840) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mid brown colour with thick white head, hoppy and malty aroma, taste is light and bitter with a short dry finish.

RussianDragon (449) - - AUG 16, 2014
12 oz bottle, served from same on Fox Lake, IL. Aroma is mild bready hop bitterness with slight metallic oxidation. Flavor is same with moderate carbonation and medium body. Bread yeast finish, not one of Lagunitas’ better offerings.

Bottle. Pale gold with off white head. Smell is caramel, nuts, cereal, resin, grass, citrus, clove. Taste is sweet caramel and nuts, floral grassiness, citrus, and finishes slightly bitter and slightly astringent. Medium body, slightly sticky, soft carbonation. Very well balanced IPA.
