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.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2009 old rating: 6/3/7/3/14 - 3.3. pours a semi-clear orange amber with a thin dirty-white head, and good lacing. smells of light citrus, cherry wood, dry leaves, definite hops, and a little sugar. tastes a crisp, bitter and sweet, some citrus, pine, and some caraeml, ends dry and nicely bitter.

Bottled. Very good IPA. Had it while in San Fran on a trip, and it was one of the many beers I had that stuck out in my memory as very enjoyable.

Really solid stuff! had this after the Wipeout IPA, so my tastebuds were numb but still could detect a good hop bite there. Nice piney smell as well

Citrus and juicy malt aromas that are very faint for this style. The aroma gets a touch more floral as the beer warms up, but it’s still rather faint. Rich copper pour with a lasting 1/4" white head that leaves much lacing around the glass. Thick and smooth on the palate with a strong bitter hop bite, very nice. Flavor is considerably more bitter than I would have guessed based on the mild aromas. Hoppy and spicy, not too much citrus gets past the strong bitterness. Good malt profile, could be more prolific. Decent brew, not overly impressive but I found it to be enjoyable every time I’ve had it.

A very nice traditional IPA. Strong hoppy flavor with a very light body and thin texture. Beautiful amber color. A great drink to have at the bar.

Bottle. Pours a nice amber color with medium white head and a lot of carbonation too. The aroma is very citrusy with hints of grass. Nice lacing on this one and a very sweet taste with a smooth finish. A great IPA.

as far as IPAs go, this was pretty above average. Not great, but definitely better than most. Quite hoppy, but didn’t have the malt backbone one would expect. tasty, though.

Clear, sparkling orange color with a small, fizzy-frothy, off-white head; a small layer sticks around an lacing is decent. Nose is nice with notes of tangerine, grass, and biscuit with hints at cinnamon. Flavor is simple; grass, tangerine, and light pine with pie crust malt tones backing. Palate is supportive to this IPA being, lively, medium, and somewhat viscous. Finishes with the more-than-moderate bitterness coming out fully, with lingering tangerine and a some herbal notes. Not a bad IPA; straight forward with nice flavors and balance. Lacks any "wow" qualities and somewhat simple without the extreme bitterness of certain IPA’s, but solid in every facet.

67F100 (32) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 9, 2007
12 oz bottle. Very minimal head. Dusky, dull amber-orange. Faintly sweet citrus and floral aroma. Mild fruity-sweet taste, bitter and a bit dry on the back end. Decent but neither outstanding or memorable.
