from a bottle, pours the standard copper color. Something was off in the aroma, it sorta smelled like new shoes or fresh leather. kinda wierd. After gettin past the aroma the flavor was good. piney, citrusy hops with some malt background. i’ll have to revisit this. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Draught at Woody’s in downtown Raleigh. Pours copper, with a medium white head, and lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, with a bit of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is similar, with a decent malk backbone and caramel. Excellent beer. RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - JUN 17, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Very strong, piney, hoppy aroma made concerned I was about to be hit over the head with a bunch of hops. I was pleasantly surprised how well balanced the flavor was. Nice malt background, with piney, grapefruity hops in the foreground. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Looks fizzy in the glass, but nice level of carbonation. Really liked the whole balance and composition of this brew, which is saying a lot, since I’m not a big IPA fan. hoplover (166) - Corpus Christi, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2008
This IPA is definenlty the most interesting IPA I’ve had. Everything id typical of an IPA except the flavor. To use that many hops in on ebatch of beer and still make it taste good is a gift. A gift from the Lord Himself I believe. This is a well rounded IPA in every sence. This was my first IPA that spun my head around when I first tried it cause I wasn’t used to all those hops yet. Then when I was, and tried a lot of different IPAs I came back to this one and was very impressed. Quite intreging indeed... hmmmm. I like it alot.

This beer was insane. A hop explosion, as well as lingering after taste that was damn near as good as taking a sip. I don’t even think I rated my inamorato, Two Hearted a 9 in the flavor section, but this is I think tied up with my home state hero. Had it on tap at the Box bar in plymouth michigan.

Pours a orange-copper color with light white head and minimal lacing. Piney aroma is very prevalent upon pour, after it settles a bit, a grapefuit flavor emerges. Not as hoppy as expected but still nice, touched by a hint of malt. Very light on the palate and light to medium bodied. Pretty good brew. fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of piney and floral hops, some citrus. Flavor an interesting concoction of all the luscious hop notes and some nicely rich caramel malt. Rich toffee notes really do wonders to accent all that pine. Maybe not as powerful as other IPA’s, but an interesting take that definitely floated my boat.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange/amber with a huge, creamy white head. Aroma and flavor of piney, bitter hops with some citrus, salt. Good, chill, and refreshing. This really hits the spot after 6 or so glasses of super sour lambics on a 90 degree day sitting outside in the heat. I would try it again in other conditions, of course. mgoy (344) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 11, 2008
Lagunitas India Pale Ale is a deep amber color with a perfectly formed orange head. The aroma is soft and mossy. The taste is very clean with a great bitter hop base and quick finish. Rune (13383) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle at Zum Biergarten, Copenhagen. Thin, white bubbly head over a brown-orange body. Malt-fruity aroma. Bitter orange tones in flavour with a bitter malty ending. Moderate palate. Good drinkability, but a bit one dimensional for an IPA (30.05.2008).
