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.

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.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours dark amber in colour, with nice head. Hoppy in both aroma and flavour. A good IPA.

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.

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.

LadySusan (766) - Ste-Therese, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 28, 2008
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 (1663) - 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
