Lagunitas IPA

From Petaluma to Bombay – we now have Lagunitas Imperial Pale Ale in stock around Tampa Bay!

Sometimes, the playful words that the brewing companies print on the outside of their bottles give us (the beer consumer) a great insight of what we are about to drink.

For instance, around the label of the Lagunitas IPA, we see the following words:

“Thanks for choosing to spend the next few minutes with this special homicidally hoppy ale. Savor the monument as the raging hop character engages the imperial Qualities of the Malt Foundation in mortal combat on the battlefield of your palate!”


Overall, I think that is a really good description. There are ample amounts of tasty hops. That play quite nice with the malts in this brew. Nothing is overpowering in your face. What we have here is a very pleasant drinking IPA that works well especially during these dog days of summer.
