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.

Goes well with a strong cigar. Very hoppy and a smooth taste. Enjoyable for an IPA fan. For darkness be thy ally

Yes it does, it does float my boat. Lustrous golden amber in colour with a ski of bright white head. The aromas dwell on the resinous with spruce cones, conifer gum and herbal grassiness along with some dessert pastry. The flavour is a carbon copy of the aroma with a good muscular twinge of hoppy spruce driven bitterness. An archetypal West Coast IPA.

BlackHaddock (3515) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
On tap at The Saddle Range in Costa Mesa, Orange County on 12th July 2014. A very easy drinking and pleasant IPA: plenty going on within the brew, mild citrus front in both the aroma and taste to this hoppy beer. Thin white head on a body that was almost orange in colour. Refreshing and although hoppier than the IPA’s I drink in the UK I enjoyed it.

Copper-yellow color with a white head. Aroma is mildly-dank grass, floral. Taste is tropical fruit and that mildly-dank grass with citrus and pine hops that aren’t strong for an IPA, and a balancing malt sweetness. Like most Lagunitas brews, this is unique compared to other IPAs, and I like it quite a bit.

Crisp copper gold color with a little head from tap. Fresh hoppy aroma. Medium thick with some bouncy carbonation that fizzles after the after taste. Hoppy forward taste with a hint of that soapiness I get in a lot of lagunitas but its less intense than most of their beers. This is probably my favorite of theirs.

Keg at holyrood 9a. Pours copper amber, light fruit, bitterness, cold, bit lacking in flavour.

DwarfeD (855) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2014
650ml bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium to full white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Well balanced bitter- and sweetness. Citrus, pine, grapefruit, spices and malts. A very smooth, refreshing and tasty IPA.

flip_soeperman (574) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2014
Medium bodied yellow beer with huge white head. Aroma of hops is quite restraint, almost some English notes in there. Quite bitter and bread. Slightly cardboardish, so I am afraid this is quite old...

HampshirePhil (138) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014
355 ml bottle - Pours an orange gold but no head and no carbonation. Incredibly hoppy taste and aroma.

sudomorph (517) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma has big notes pine, resin, citrus, and tropical fruit. Taste is bitter but well done. Pine and resin with some citrus, caramel, bread, and a drawn out, bitter aftertaste. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a big, dry finish. Overall a really nice IPA. Great, balanced flavours with a very drinkable mouth feel.

Bottle. Pours copper color with beige head. Nose is citrus and pine. Taste is toasted malt and resin. Very little in the aftertaste.
