COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Purchased a single 12-oz bottle at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a semi-clear, copper-amber brew with a thin off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of both pine and citrus zest, a hint of caramel and some light spice. Taste is medium bodied, some citrus zest, a hint of grapefruit and caramel malt. Finish is slightly metallic, with a short lived, mild bitterness.

Bottle pours amber/light orange color with off white head. Aroma is malt and some citrus. Must not be fresh. Flavor is more of the same as the aroma. Overall just an ok ipa.

On tap at the Nut House in Palo Alto. Pretty solid showing if nothing spectacular. Golden-amber appearance with white head. Piney aroma. Piney hop flavors are there, along with sweet malt and good bitterness. Medium palate. Nothing special but a nice west coast IPA overall.

golden and red with mild head. flavor lacks on the malt balance, with some strong hop bitterness, lacking somewhat on the the hop flavor profile. disappointing for a west coast ipa

Very good IPA, on draught at Plan B, starting to really like this brewer and the IPA doesnt dissapoint. coppery color, almost caramel, not very hazy with an off white head that clings for awhile. typical IPA flavor of pine and citrus with just the right kick, hoppy finish that asks poitely for another mouthful.

Poured a nice rich copper color with a big fluffy white head that dissipated rather slowly. The aroma was of fresh hops; citrusy with touch of pine. The flavor starts with a bit of malt up front then the hop takes over a provides great balance. The mouthfeel is very nice. The drinkability of this one is very high as the relatively low abv makes it one easy drinker.

This was a good, refreshing brew but the hop profile makes it fee more like an American Pale Ale and not an IPA

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2009
Brewed in the USA........ Pours a copper color with some mild carbonation and a very thin white head. Aroma of spices, hops and grapefruit. Taste is of citrus, pine needles and caramel. The mouthfeel is refreshing, but i wish it were alittle more hoppy. Overall, This was a pleasant pale ale and i would like to drink another.

[Bottled from Fish and beer, Copenhagen.] Deep amber with a creamy, tan head. Soft, grassy, smooth, hoppy aroma and flavour with light toffee. Slightly vinous with a dry, medium bitterness.
