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 youíre on.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2008
Aroma: smells marvellous, pine, fresh as hell, lovely. Raspberry, pineapple, sweet malt. Dominated by fresh sourish superpiny exotic hops.
Flavour: nice, sourish, fruity, malty backbone. Pleasant hopbitterness, brackish.
Appearance: nice, clear orange body with fluffy & lathery white head.
Palate: harsh, acrid but smooth. Seems alkalic.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 13, 2008
20080413 Bomber. Mostly clear golden color with sticky, lasting, small white head. Aroma is mild citrus, some earthy/grassy notes, and tea. The body is thinner than Iíd like, almost zero astringency, some decent finishing bitterness. Flavors of iced tea with lemon, mildly grassy/pithy hops, lightly solvent. Compared to the other CA IPA standards like Stone, Pelican, Bear Repub, Alpine, Sierra nevada, and on and on and on , this one doesnít hold a candle. Meh, Iím probably overrating.

bag (106) - Bethel Park, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2008
From bottle... poured clear gold. Disappointingly weak aroma. Light citrus flavor to start. Slightly bitter. Finishes dry. This was decent, but I was hoping for much more.

Goodgrief (1907) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 12, 2008
Beer pours copper color with a dense suspension of tiny yeasties throughout (I thought they were bubbles as first). Weak aroma of malt. Flavor was very hoppy with grapefruit, some earthy/herbal notes and peppery flavors. Not really much in the malt department even after it warmed...very faint caramel. I was pretty unimpressed.

patrick767 (3812) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 12, 2008
bottle - Pours copper with a one finger white head. It has a nice citrus hop aroma. The flavor is, as one would expect, all about the hops. Thereís just a little citrus in there and some light malt. I thought it could have used a little more malt balance and a little more character. Thatís a ridiculous number of different malts and hops though. Itís medium bodied and leaves the characteristic long, bitter finish of an IPA.

mpjake (7) - Summerville, South Carolina, USA - APR 10, 2008 does not count
A copper pour. Not much of an aroma. Understated up front (watery) with a slight cinnamon hint that builds to a grassy (not overwhelmingly) and hoppier palate and then settles into a oatmeal aftertaste.

changeup45 (1727) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2008
Pours a copper color with a decent initial head and a pretty good amount of lacing ends up on the glass. The aroma is quite mild. It consists of citrus fruits with hints of caramel and malt but hardly any hops. Upon further examination I get a small grapefruit hop presence but not enough. Maybe it was my desire for hops that created it. A semi spiced malt characteristic comes out first in the flavor followed by a sour hoppy grapefruit flavor. Caramel mixed in. A slightly sour grapefruit flavor lingers a bit. A wet finish for an IPA. As the beer warms a little it starts to somewhat resemble more of a traditional IPA (at least the oneís Iíve had) with a sour hop flavor. Interesting mix of malts and hops but not necessarily what I look for in an IPA. Decent enough beer but I probably wonít get it again.
