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.

12-oz bottle. Copper color with a persistent thick head, white with orange lacing. You first notice the nicely hopped aroma as a promise of complexity that will be unfortunately not fulliflled. A very well balanced, very capable IPA. If i had to chose among many macro-brewed IPAs i would pick this one...

brstp (201) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Bottle. Golden orange color, not particularly hazy, white head. Aroma is of grassy hops, a hint of citrus. Taste is pine hops, caramel malt, strong hop bitterness, again a hint of citrus at the finish. They come a lot better than this.

browner (41) - Delafield, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 13, 2007
The beer crystal clear and orange w/ a a head which dissapears fast. A lot of bitter flavor in the fast finish. Not too hoppy andmid strong in flavor. A good IPA

TomDecapolis (4436) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Pours a hazy golden amber with small floaties and an average foamy off white head. Aroma of iced tea, some citrus from the hops, caramel malt but really nothing too stand out. Not sure how old this bottle was. Picked it up at the local six pack shop...but I don’t have too much faith in how quickly they turn over products. Onto flavor...pretty much the same iced tea, malt sweetness and some decent hop bitterness. Not much hop flavor.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Lagunitas event at the Brickskeller. Clear orange appearance; off-white head with great retention and lacing. Some citrus hops, plastic (?) in the aroma. Slightly off. Medium mouthfeel: floral and citrus hops, one-dimensional, but reasonably tasty and balanced. Light, slightly dry finish, with hints of sugar.

Spliffy (55) - Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2007
A nice drinkable IPA. Not to overbearing with anything. Nice easy aroma of citrus, maybe some pine. Nice and crisp, will drink again for sure.

tomciccateri (995) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 9, 2007
In their 22-ounce bottle. Pours a very dense dark gold color with a foamy white head. Hoppy aroma and big hop bitterness. Medium-bodied, with a dominating hoppy flavor and underlying clean malty flavor. Slight, lasting citrusy char. Visible sediment. Very drinkable.
