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.

Thanks for the bottle JoeMcPhee. Great aroma of honey, spices, raisins and plenty of hops. hazy copper with a decent white frothy head. Flavour is sharp, citrus fruit and grapefruit. As i drink more I’m getting oranges and more grapefruit flavours coming through with some hops. This is a very tasty IPA, can be sharp but steels to a delicious brew. Very enjoyable IPA.

12 oz. bottle at Beer Bistro in Toronto. The color is a hazy amber with a thin beige head. The aroma and taste are of hops. Also in the taste is a sweet malty caramel feel to it, you can also taste some citrus fruits. The finjsh is a nice bitterness of an I.P.A.

I am not a big fan of IPAs but I definitely enjoyed this one. Very smooth and flavorful, without the overwhelming aftertaste of hops

guzzler67 (1654) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2008
Clear, deep amber appearance with an average size, white head and good lacing. Resinous hop aroma. Ample, sweet, caramel malt backbone allows the huge variety of hops to bounce around and develop flavors of grapefruit, orange, pine and herbs. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Bitter, lingering finish. Could be a good everyday IPA, if you like piney hops.

SHANER4 (491) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 22, 2008
12 oz. bottle - Poured rich copper color with small head. Aroma - grapefruit, lemon, light pine and subtle hops. Flavor - tasted more malt than hops. Weak for an IPA, no hop bite?? Palate - medium mouthfeel with average carbonation. Finish is slightly dry with little aftertaste. Overall - very drinkable and not what I would consider an IPA. For first time IPA drinkers

killjoy966 (677) - Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Had a couple pints at the King Street Bar. Kind of warm but pretty tasty. I have always liked the copy associated with Lagunitas beers, but 43 different hops? That sounds crazy, and crazy expensive.

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 17, 2008
Bottle, at breakfast, during EBF 2008, Copenhagen. Amber with a good white head that leaves lot of lace on the glass. Soft yet full bodied and tasty. Very drinkable - an approachable American IPA.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy amber gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left very little lace. Very pleasnt hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, with more emphasis on the citrus. Some notes of malt are also present. The flavor is malt up front, albeit a bit restrained, followed by a strong dose of grapefruit and pine hops, again with more emphasis on the grapefruit. The finish is especially bitter, akin to the white pith of a grapefruit. A good IPA, but the bitterness is a bit over the top for me. This one is for the hopheads.

daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2008
Bottle from total wine. Copper pour. Small white head. Hoppy aroma to say the least. Spicy and citrus notes stand out. Flavor kicks your taste buds with some pretty bitter hops. Decent malt backbone. Not bad, but a tad bitter for my preference.

DSG (11505) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 30, 2008
(10/26/08) Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn. Clear amber color with a bit of white foam. Aroma of floral hops. Sweetish flavor with some malt and bready notes at first and afterwards nice refreshing bitter hops with a bit of citric notes. A nice quaffable IPA.
