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.

BVery (9574) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - FEB 23, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 TAP: at Stub & Herb’s, 2.22.09. Clear orange pour, mild head, pine hop aroma, well-balanced, slightly dry on the finish but not bitter. Outstanding flavor, and a good malt backbone.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Clear copper with a slightly off white head. Lots of citrus and floral hops in the aroma. Taste is very much on the hoppy side, with citrus/grapefruit qualities balanced with light caramel maltiness. Nice crisp bite in the palate and a lingering, bitter finish.

Nebulor (109) - , California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Nice crisp hop aroma of pine and pine needles. Poured a clear light iced tea color with a copper hue. Frothy white head with some action and no sediment, this was a twist off bomber. Great complexity of flavors including pine and pine needles and maybe some tangerine. The malts are blended within and have hints of caramel and maybe grain (barley). Medium bodied, very resinous, with lively yet soft carbonation. Great blend of hops, says 43 different hops on the bottle. As a courtesy I think they should have a born on date since this bomber had a twist off cap, they do not keep the freshness as long as the solid sealed caps.

MoritzF (9423) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2009
(35.5cl bottle) Slightly hazy, amber colour with a short off-white foamy head. Sweet cara-malty and slightly toasted aroma with biscuits and a delicate hoppy touch with lemon-fruity and slightly woody notes. Bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Aromatic and complex malt-character with notes of biscuits, caramel, licorice and subtle fruity and woody hoppy accents. Almost dry, malty finish with a good bitterness-sweetness ratio and light to moderate but aromatic hops (18.II.09).

Beerman6686 (6325) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2009
This poured a nice copper color with a big fluffy white head. Aroma was bittering hops and some mlatiness as well. Flavor was some what bitter, but not much of hop flavor, but sweet malts instead. Not a bad beer, but not too great for an IPA

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Pours an orange color with a nice white head. Nose of floral hops, pine and citrus. The taste was nice grapefruit, hops and some caramel - a solid IPA.

BiddleBrau (1163) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 11, 2009
Clear amber with nice tight head. Citrus nose with slight malt notes. Well balanced hop and malt, mainly hoppy but malt is right there maintaining a balance. Palate is full and creamy. Nice brew.

This is a great beer! This brewery knows its stuff. The flavors of this beer jump out at you. I find myself truly enjoying every sip. About a quarter inch of head after the pour which stayed until the first sip a few minutes later. The hops were very rich . Overall this is one of my favorite beers and breweries.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2009
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.

fiver29 (1036) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2009
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.
