Does anyone have a recipe that is close to Lagunitas IPA? I tried one the other day and really liked it. On their website, it states that it is "...Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts... " I imagine that a close approximation could be made by simplifying the malt and hop bill though :)

Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts

That's just stupid!

I toured the Brewery and there were only about 8 types of Hops in their freezer. can't remember which ones, though. I would take that statement as a joke.

It's one of my favorite local IPA's, but I haven't really tried brewing anything to approximate it myself. I just buy it instead. They like to joke around so the 43 hops, 65 malts bit is just that.

They use Great Western malts. I think their IPA base malt is either the Northwest pale ale malt or the regular 2-row. The last time I was there I saw Horizon, Centennial, Cascade, and Willamette hops. I'd guess WLP001, WLP002, or something similar. OG about 1.059 and IBU's about 45. It has an awesome hop character. The hop flavor and aroma is superb.

Nice approximation, Guy. Lagunitas IPA is possibly my all-time favorite IPA, or at least in my top five along with Two-Hearted, Alpha King, Hop Devil, and Ruination. Good stuff and great to find it on tap so many place in the Bay Area...
