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 youre on.

I thought I had rated this before? Oh well. Anyways, good looking IPA. NIce fluffy head that doesnt fade away quickly. Orange/caramel brown in color. Looks pretty good. An awkward hop aroma. This pisses me off. I have had a few IPAs that had a tea flavor. This is one of them. The Hoppin Frog Imperial/Double IPA was just like this! An almost tea-like aroma. There are some hops, but there is this sweet flavor that improperly balances the beer out. A very sweet caramel taste. Just lacking in hops. A semi-smooth beer, but overall, a beer that doesnt come close to Lagunitas standards. What happened with this one?

Folks this is your standard well made LIGHT IPA. Nothing impressive but none the less an IPA.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Pours a hazy orange color with thin white head. Faint aroma with notes flowers and apricots. Flavor is lots of citrus hops that give way to a ridiculous amount of bittering hops in the finish. Watery mouthfeel. OK, but nothing more than that.

Draft. Poured a deep copper with ample thick head. Smells very hoppy. This one taught how great an IPA can be when its fresh! Bitter hops, pine, and malt flavors. Bitterness is not overdone and just about perfect.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Tap. Orange/yellow pour, plenty of carbonation and aroma of fresh hops. Flavor was that of your standard everyday solid IPA, plenty of in your face hops, citrus and a good bitter bite on the finish. Not a fan of all Lagunitas beer, but this one was solid and I will be buying a sixer of this sometime soon.
