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.

alexanderj (3541) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle. Poured an orange color with a small to medium off white head. Aroma was quite good with caramel, sweet malt, citrus, melon/pineapple, and fruit. Flavor was good, but not quite as good as the aroma. Alot of sweet malt and caramel, perhaps more pronounced than the hops. Melon, earthy, and citrus hops in the finish. Solid amount of sweetness. Solid beer.

elihapa (1547) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Pours orange. Aroma is indistinct of malt and flowery hops. I am guilty of trying Hop Stoopid before this, which in retrospect is an obvious mistake. Comparatively, this IPA comes out too bland, too muddy, too inferior when sizing up Hop Stoopid. I suppose taken alone it is not all that bad: just more caramelly-red fruit fruit than I would like out of an IPA. The bitterness does come in at the finish, but rather passively and inharmoniously.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Fantastic Cascade aroma and flavor, but milder bitterness which I appreciate in an IPA that I want to drink more than one of. Citrus, pineapple, a touch of sweetness, and dry to accentuate the great hop flavor

angrypirate06 (1388) - Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle. Golden brown pour body underneath a fizy white head with good lacing. Aroma of pine hops, exotic fruits, and earthiness. Flavor was fruity hops, pine, earth and dirt. Pretty good IPA.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a clear, copper body and covered by a fluffy, barely off-white head that leaves decent lace. Aroma is pungent with pine C-Hops, caramel, dust and lightly estery. Taste is pine hops, light citrus, caramel and tea. Creamy bubbles and mouthfeel.

GranvilleTim (1854) - Granville, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2009
Reddish-Copper pour with white head. Malt and little hop aroma. Malt flavor is more prominent than anything else. Gives a dry aftertaste and leaves a nice malt flavor. Well-balanced beer that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Drank it right out of the cellar(55F). Could of been a little cooler, but very tasty anyway.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2009
Beer poors golden with a nice white head. Aroma is subtle but has nice notes of malt and hops. The flavor is enjoyable. I was a bit suprised expecting a lot more hopiness but the beer was extremely drinkable. Flavors that came out were a bit of malty sweetness with citruis and grapefruit notes. Palate was nice with a bit of stickyness. Overall the beer was good. This beer would be something I would recommend as summer IPA that you could have a few of.

Snot19kilo (103) - Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Pours gold. light head no retention. no lace. Aroma- hoppy, spruce grass. Taste is grassy, alcohol and falls to a bitterness. Finish is strong bitter that lingers. I’m not a fan of IPA’s.

Case (300) - GERMANY - APR 22, 2009
Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam - one of the incredibly rare places in Europe where you can buy some US craft beer to try.
Pours a beautiful deep clear orange with minimal head that quickly disappears, leaving a fine lacing. Strong sweet hoppy aroma, chewing gum, pine resin. Taste starts out quite sweet and malty and then gradually a bit of grapefruitish hops comes through. Quite herbal, pine trees and caramel. Very flavourful for a beer of such moderate strength. Low carbonation but crisp mouthfeel. Clean smooth taste but a bit too sweet for me with not enough hop bitterness.

hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2009
Golden amber body with a thick lasting tan head. Nice aroma of pine and citrus, very fitting for an IPA. The palate is a bit light, but pretty smooth. The flavor is not quite a good as the aroma would lead me to believe. Biscuit malt sweetness up front is quickly pushed aside in favor of bitter grapefruit and a hint of pine. Not much aftertaste, just a bit of bitterness. A decent IPA.
