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 youíre on.

Lagunitas makes excellent beers and this is definitely one of them. Everything you want in an IPA. Great balance and taste. You canít go wrong with this IPA at all.

DrnkMcDermott (2803) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Draft at the Chicago brewery, waiting for the tour. Best part of any brewery tour: complimentary product! In the generous taster glass, it shows more orange than the Dogtown I had before this, with a thin head. Aroma is hoppy, but easy to take. What should I have expected but a big, hoppy West Coast taste, solid right up the middle.

Poured from a bottle, clear honey orange. Light and citrusey on the nose. Define orange hit followed with a lite Granny Smith apple finish. If I had to, Iíd call it a sunny IPA. Not quote sessionable, but deceptive enough to leave you pleasantly tipsy.

Pint at euston tap, London. Lovely dry IPA, not my favouite IPa as it felt lacking in flavour but certainly good on the hoppyness sie of things

Grumbo (606) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Couple of bottles of this drunk at the Fat Cat, Ipswich. Pours a clear amber/gold colour, with a decent white head. Sweet, moderately hoppy aroma with citrus notes. Some bitterness to finish. OK but expected there to be something more to it.

Scopey (6906) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at Moon Under Water, Balham Spoons. It pours clear orange with a decent white head. The nose is fresh, juicy orange, tangerine, papaya, marmalade, biscuit and piney resin. The taste is crisp, bitter, piney, resin, toasty, straw, orange and tangerine peel with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp and very drinkable. A classic and great addition to the spoons line-up.

Patrickctenchi (3703) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2014
Bottle: Pours clear amber with a tall beige head. Scent is citrus, orange-peel. Taste is orange-peel, resiny hops. Pretty good sweet vs. bitter going on...although the hops get a little heavy and murky towards the finish.

seymour (1438) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Poured a 12oz brown bottle into Spieglau IPA glass. It poured a clear light orange amber colour with white foam, lasting with lace. Powerful American hoppy aroma: grapefruit, pine cones, spruce tips, blackcurrant fruit, honey, grass, weeds. Flavour wasnít as bitter as expected, some mild caramelly malt sweetness underneath, loads of hoppy flavour to match aromas. Lingering citrusy aftertaste, tangy but not puckering. Body and mouthfeel a bit bland, but it works to spotlight the hops. Tasty and refreshing, similar to countless other A-IPAs but well-crafted nonetheless.

kidobutai (371) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Nice frothy head that dissipates quickly, but leaves a decent lacing around the glass. Slightly dark golden clear color. Aroma is grassy, piney, and hops. Smooth, almost creamy going down, some citrus in the back of the tongue. Good refreshing beer, my first from this company.

On Draught
Pours a pale golden color with a good head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma holds a nice grapefruit character with some dank hops and a little pine. Itís grassy, itís aromatic, itís totally focused around hops, and a multidimensional presentation of hop character.

The flavor is piney with some melon and peppery notes. Itís fairly dry and as it warms the flavor moves into more of a grass and grapefruit thing. Either way itís a very nice presentation of fresh happiness.

Cool that itís around here these days.

Draft @ SJC Marriott. Hoppy, citrus aroma. Nice clear golden color with lingering white head. Wonderful flavor of citrus & malt. Perfect body, med to full. Easy drinking beer, not to filling to drink.
