LAGUNITAS BREWING CO: 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.

BEER LOVER’S REVIEW: Bottle. Uplifting glowing red body with vibrant orange fringe. Rich aromas of pineapple, melon, cherry and high-quality malt richness. Big IPA flavour with swelling bitterness leading to a dry bitter finish. A snack cup of fruit salad towards the middle of the flavour progression and an omnipresent piney note throughout. Finish feels a little incomplete but highly enjoyable overall.

BEER LOVER’S REVIEW: Bottle. Pours clear gold with a bit of off white head that laces nicely. Aroma is hoppy with citrus and floral notes along with some pine and a decent malt, caramel component. Taste is hoppy and floral, fairly bitter, but malt balances it nicely. Finish is piny hops. A very solid west coast IPA.

BEER LOVER’S REVIEW: Was very surprised with this one. Wasnt expecting much but turns out it is a very solid IPA. Aroma is hop resin and grapefruit. Sweet malts throughout. Flavour is syrupy hop resin with sweet and sour tones throughout, caramel/grapefruit. Very solid IPA.

Little Sumpin’- Sumpin Ale. Days like these sometimes a Little Sumpin’- Sumpin is just the thing.

BEER LOVER’S REVIEWS: 12 oz. bottle from a six (approx. 9-10 packs purchased and consumed), about time I reviewed here, this one is worthy of my first.
A – Orange, but still pale
S – glorious, and should be infused into incense
T – Hops (pine, citrus, floral), top the wheat
M – it lingers just enough to take another swig
O – Will be on my short list of brews I will gravitate to when looking at any retail beer fridge or tap lineup. Can be downed year round with anticipation and enthusiasm.
Keep in mind, I’m an IPA/Double IPA fan and this one hits the spot for me. If you’re all about the wheat, this may not be exactly what your reaching for.
