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.

ilikestuff (224) - Irving, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2006 Wonderful golden color with a nice white frothy head that doesn’t last long. Has a fruity, citrus, toffee aroma. Not too bitter, has a unique clean fresh taste, probably from all the different hops. Has a very nice palate, not too carbonated, but it tingles your tongue a little. All of the flavors mix very well, but you can still pick them apart. An overall very nice brew, but it does have a lot of crap floating around in it.

Pous dark golden-orange with a small white head. Aroma is dominated by hops, but a bit of maltiness. Hops are mostly citric. Flavor is similar, bit of sweetness from the malt, but mostly citric hop flavor. Finish is a bit overly bitter, and has a sort of metallic taste to it.

holdenn (2077) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 12oz bottle: pours brownish orange with an off white head. Light notes of cascade? hops and spice. The flavor is well executed different hops with different spices and bitterness. They cover the palate rather nicely. It’s no IIPA so the hops aren’t intense but they are very well balanced with each other.

yngwie (12682) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2006
Bottled. Golden, almost clear, with an off-white head. Citrus, malt, sweetness and pine in the aroma. Malty, sweet flavor with citrus and pine. Full body, and a lot of bitterness in the finish. Bitter but pleasant. (060720)

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2007 22 oz bomber from local grocery. Reddish Amber. Hoppy citrus aroma. The taste is fair but more hoppy than I like. Way too much bitter astringant aftertaste.************** 6/28/2007 rerate-11 months after original rating which was 8/3/6/3/11=3.1****** 22 oz bottle via Roth’s. Pours a semi-clear amber with an average sized head. Nose is lemon, orange and floral hops. Taste the same with some grapefruit and pine in the finish/aftertaste. Body is medium. Carbonation average. An above average IPA.

blackmurder (226) - sadf, Hawaii, USA - JUL 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 I like how IPAs rest in my mouth. Aroma is of heavy grapefruit, hops, and irish ale yeast. Flavor is a bit strong but grapefruit, lemon, and some tangerine can be tasted. It looks like any other IPA really. Pretty decent, but nothing amazing.

greenhorn1 (782) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 20, 2006
22 oz bottle. Pours a nice red amber with a decent head with tons of lacing. You can smell the strong hops aroma when you pour it into a glass. There is a nice balance of carmel malt and hops, but I like my IPA’s with more of a bite. Citrus and pine linger on the palate. Overall: not bad, not great.
