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.

pours a clear copper with little head. Aroma strong of citrus, particularly grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Flavor is similar, with more hop bite and a nice bitter aftertaste. Tasty brew, different than your typical IPA, but still nice.

this does not drink like an IPA. i had it out of a bottle, and it tasted sweet and sugary, with a strong grapefruit flavor. it tastes much more like linenkugel’s sunset wheat than a normal pale ale. in fact, it tastes it tastes a lot like lemon-lime soda. however, it does have a decent aroma, but the aroma does not match an IPA. i bought this beer expecting an IPA and i was very disappointed.

Had this while on vacation in CA. A wonderful beer to have on tap at so many "regular" places. Though a relatively simply mix of hops and malt, still so much more to this beer than what one usually finds when out at a family resteraunt.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Bottled at Ørsted Ølbar, Copenhagen. Clear amber,small head. Aroma of grapefruit. Lots of caramelly malt, more so than hops. Above medium bodied with good levels of bitterness.

TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear orange, with a two-finger head. Aroma of citrus hops and a bit of malt. The flavor is assertively hoppy, though well-balanced with malts. Bready aftertaste, and very bitter. Solid, but there are many better IPAs out there.

This is a huge hop beer. Almost over the top. The nose seems to be mostly Cascades with some other hops rounding it out. The flavor is big hoppy, but there is some maltiness to help balance it out. I’m not sure if I could drink more than one of these at a time due to the hoppiness.

cryfreedmb (113) - Ocean, New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2008
Small disappearing head. Aroma of hops and citrus. Nice flavor. More mild then what I was expecting. Hop bite lingers a bit on the tongue. Balanced with caramel and malt. Good brew. Very drinkable.

hiphop (84) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2008
Huge head. This is quite a fruity IPA, from the aroma of citrus and berries, to the strawberry color, to the abundant flavors of strawberries, cherries - quite unique and odd to the style - moderate hops and a strong, biscuit-like malt backbone for the fruit flavors to play off of
