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.

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.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is light... fruity hops with a hint of grass. Taste is light for an IPA. Starts out decent with a nice hoppy flavor with an undertone of sweet malt. The aftertaste is not pleasant though. An unnatural bitterness that didn’t seem to taste right. Not a horrible IPA by any means. Just wouldn’t be the first one I would reach for from the cooler.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - APR 10, 2009
Fresh and clean. Aroma of cascade hops and sweet malts. Taste is sweet and hops linger a bit. Well made and very consistent.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - APR 10, 2009
Grassy and hoppy ipa with a rather dry earthy taste. Didn’t care much for it, just not too much going on with this one plus there was some unpleasant taste lurking in the background reminding me of carpet cleaner. I wonder if this was gone off or something.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2009
Bottle. Amber/dark golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma: Tropical fruit, dried fruits, bisquity malt, light hops, citrus. Taste: Tropical fruit, citrus, toffee, grain, bisquity malt, menthol, a bit salty. Not very bitter or grapefruity at first, but bitterness and grape grows in the finish. Medium body and light carbonation.

BillKismet (3863) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bronze with consistent carbonated bubbles feeding a thin, but resilient head. Floral hop aroma with slices of peach and apricot, and orange marmalade with a deep musk overhang, then a last dash of grapefruit and catbox. Easy hop flavor with a sold malt backbone. This one has been fridged for a year, so that may have subdued the hops a bit. Well balanced, with a mild refrain of bitterness.

mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2009
With a super large I-P-A on the front of the bottle, I expected to be wowed. This is a fair IPA with a little bit of a dirty after-taste to it. Great color, okay balance, but need more of a hop presence.

Copper color. Citrus and sweet caramel balance. Nothing over the top. Good balance.

Borresteijn (6498) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2009
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear amber colour, light orange white head. Sweet fruity and hoppy grapefruit aroma. Flavour is fruity, citrus, grapefruit, a bit of caramel, dry hoppy bitter finish. A bit less than medium bodied. A nice "light" IPA.

eyesolus (64) - Mill Creek, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2009
12oz bottle; not too hoppy; nice starter beer for the evening; this would be a good craft to have on hand for those new to this type of beer. (#49)
