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.

bfeldmann (1050) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Ho hum. Poured a copperish color with big head lots of noticiable yeasts in there. Aroma was very yeasty and light pine/citrus hops. Flavor was much hoppier then the aroma lots of grapefruit and yeast, just an average IPA.

Suttree (6145) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2008
Coppery orange, small white head. Great aroma - resin, pine, sticky hops. Flavor is, as one might guess, dominated by hops - resiny and sticky, but also nice notes of grapefruit and, uh, more grapefruit? Really hop dominated, and I really liked it. WBF, Raleigh.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2008 Had on tap at McCrays. Poured to a yellowish gold color, unlike the orange copper I was expecting. The anticipated citrusy nose and flavor were there, but slightly muted, as was the bitterness of the mouthfeel. This all led to a medium length, slightly bitter flavor which was nice and smooth. Not a bad beer at all, but still below other Lagunitas offerings.

Nice straightforward IPA. Rich hop flavor and aroma. I like their Maximus IPA a little more, but I suppose thats neither here nor there--good beer!

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 23, 2008
12 oz bottle. A slight unclear deep golden colored beer with a fully diminishing near-white head. Fresh fruity and hoppy aroma; sweet grapefruit, tangerines and tropical. Grassy, light piney hops. Notes of peppermint and sweet nutty malts.Taste is not that complex, but has fine distinct bitterness and leaves some likeable flavors of citrus and refined malts. Lasting fruity-bitter finish. Loveable.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2008
Aroma: smells marvellous, pine, fresh as hell, lovely. Raspberry, pineapple, sweet malt. Dominated by fresh sourish superpiny exotic hops.
Flavour: nice, sourish, fruity, malty backbone. Pleasant hopbitterness, brackish.
Appearance: nice, clear orange body with fluffy & lathery white head.
Palate: harsh, acrid but smooth. Seems alkalic.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 13, 2008
20080413 Bomber. Mostly clear golden color with sticky, lasting, small white head. Aroma is mild citrus, some earthy/grassy notes, and tea. The body is thinner than Id like, almost zero astringency, some decent finishing bitterness. Flavors of iced tea with lemon, mildly grassy/pithy hops, lightly solvent. Compared to the other CA IPA standards like Stone, Pelican, Bear Repub, Alpine, Sierra nevada, and on and on and on , this one doesnt hold a candle. Meh, Im probably overrating.

bag (106) - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2008
From bottle... poured clear gold. Disappointingly weak aroma. Light citrus flavor to start. Slightly bitter. Finishes dry. This was decent, but I was hoping for much more.
