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 youíre on.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Centimeter or so of head. Floral and citrus hoppy aroma. Good IPA. Would buy again if my favorites werenít around.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 19, 2007
Pour was a nice light copper color with a two-finger off-white head. Head hung around for a bit and offered some lacing. The aroma was of floral hops, some citrus and underlying sweetness. Pretty one-dimensional flavor with hops dominating and not enough sweet malt to offer any balance. Slightly metallic mouthfeel.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
12 oz bottle - pours clear rust with lots of suspended particles that arenít going anywhere. White head leaves very nice lace. Fruity and floral hop aroma is quite beautiful. Body nicely robust, though flavour is slightly one dimensional. Fruity hops, but with a good amount of balancing malt. This is a quality IPA, one I will definitely get again. 43 different hops? Wow - nothiní like the good ole US of A for some old fashioned extremism.....

bottle at dicarloís tasting. this is a pretty average to good IPA. it was drank after several belgian samples and some other styles, and it was nice to be able to point out to my friends exactly what hops are since they shined so much in contrast to the previous beers weíd had. iíll have to rerate it someday, but this seemed pretty decent all around. um, crisp and cascadish.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 9, 2007
What a surprise Iím at JFK airport and i see this on tap. I jumped on this one and i was pretty happy with my choice. Itís not really special, itís your normal american IPA with a big hop bite and aroma. The label claims 43 hops...iím not sure why youíd ever put that many varieties in a beer, and iíd be the first to call BS on that one. Itís a good regular IPA. Iíd get it again.

taffurs888 (124) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2007
Pours a dark orange with mall head. Very dry taste at the end not much bite, as in citrusy or bitterness. Piney after taste big time.

CigarsLoveBeer (153) - Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2007
Bottle: Orange body with a thin head. Noted cake, pine, perfume, sugar cane, and some citrus. This beer started out dry and bitter. A slight hint of sweetness hit for a second before more dry hoppyness finishes off this IPA with a mission. Does open up a little after a while, with some saltine cracker, sweet orange, and perfume qualities making this beer a little more interesting. A solid session beer for when I just want hops.

Enjoyed this IPA very much. Dry with a full hop flavor. Doesnít sneak up as fast on you as the Maximus. Love the bitterness combined with the dryness.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours deep copper/amber with a large off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, hops, citrus, pine. The flavor is caramel, citrus, and a piney bitterness through out.
