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.

MiP (14439) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle. Very grassy aroma, a little caramel and tobacco. Hazy copper colour, small white head. The flavour is quite hoppy, caramelly, with a rough bitterness. Not a bad beer, but rather rough, I think.

stoutchap (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2008
A really decent IPA. Pours a coppery color with a small off-white head. A mix of citrus and floral hops in the nose. Nice mouthfeel - solid. Nice flavor profile - with a variety of hops notes. A little malt in the finish. Very drinkable.

Beerdedone (2933) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pourscopperwith a off-white one finger head. Aroma of floraland piney hops, light caramel, and malty sweetmess. Fairly balanced flavor of pine, grapefruit, caramel malts, with a light bitterness and a dry hop finish.

drpimento (2460) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Great IPA! Poured with a big frothy, foamy, textured head and some lace. Very nice slightly spicy aroma with a hint of earthiness. Ditto the flavor. Very clear dark amber color. Head lasts for a while. Very long hoppy finish. Not a citrusy hop character. This is the way I prefer it. This just rearrived at the Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Pours a clear amber with a nice crème head that falls but leaves lots of lace. The nose is that intense piney perfume. Flavor is hoppy, but a bit of a tart edge hits me and I can’t say I like it that much. As I dwell on it, it seems almost wood like. Interesting? Yes. My favorite? No. Feel has a slightly higher level of carbonation to it that gives a bit of a bite and the liquid is well bodied. Overall this is a nice IPA, but that slightly woody tart thing that is going on kind of knocks it down a bit in my book.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 1, 2008
12oz. Pours light, clear orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is citrusy though light, tangerines and oranges. Taste is smooth, balanced, lightly bitter. Highly drinkable though not incredibly flavorful or unique.

A great beer. Nice golden color. Grapefruit taste / smell. Very good, lots of hops! No Stone IPA or Ruination. I would drink this all days of the week.

illidurit (2243) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 26, 2008
Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a generic pint glass. Coppery gold color with a fluffy white 1.5 finger head. Quite attractive so far. Aromas of pine and grapefruit, that’s about it. Flavors of grapefruit and pine, that’s about it. Lacks a detectable malt presence and consequently tastes one-dimensionally bitter. Appropriately medium body and carbonation are this beer’s strongest point. The mouthfeel drags the drinkability to a bit above average, but I can’t say I want to go get another one. Run of the mill, in my opinion.

I really liked this beer a lot! The aroma was citrusy, yet piney at the same time. Nice bronze color to the beer and poured me a thinner than expected head. The taste was surprisingly refreshing and the citrus aroma actually translated to a citrus taste from the hops. Finish was very crisp, I enjoyed this beer thoroughly..........
