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.

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.

12oz bottle. Good beer. Lacks a real hoppy punch, but a nice beer to have around. Pours a pretty small head.

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2014 Re-Rate 11/19/2014, original rate 1/7/2009: Definitely better than my original rating. Nice, clear gold pour with a 1 finger, creamy to soapy white head. Flavor and aroma wise it’s actually a decently well rounded IPA with some decent pine, citrus and cereal grain notes. Light to medium body, kinda syrupy. Original rating: Pours a cloudy dark amber with a 2 finger buttery tan head that lasts long enough for me to research infected beers and come back to it. The atricle on infected beer said that the giant greeinsh tan chunks that are in this beer may be only precipitated proteins, but damn do they look nasty, I mean they are huge, I am used to getting occasional yeast floaties but these look like someone threw cornflakes in the beer, I am a little apprehensive but as the aroma seems normal if not a bit weak for an IPA I will soldier on. Aroma is sweet caramel, honey, a little toast, some citrus and some pine hops really weak though. Flavor is.....here it goes not turning back now...strange and weak fo an IPA. Not really in a oh my god I am drinking giant bacteria colonies kinda way...more of a really weak take on the IPA style kinda way. Caramel and toffee in the begining, then a little citrus and pine, some straw in there too. It actually seems like it may be a well rounded beer if it were doubled, good thing Maximus is up next...hope it looks better! Body is thin and somewhat under carbonated.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2009
Tap at Papago. Pours a filtered copper color with a creamy off-white head. Mild with citrus and hops. Neither aggressive or ambitious. Balanced, but seemingly uninspired.

thejoeshow (232) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a nice white head that has decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is a nice mellow, not too in your face citrus hop. Very nice, but I was expecting it to be a bit larger. Flavor is orange/citrus fruit. There is a slight bitterness to it but, again...I was hoping for a bit more. Overall, this is a good beer but it’s a bit too mellow for me as an IPA. I don’t know...maybe it just me. Good beer though.
