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.

On tap all over san francisco. I don’t mean to be biased but we midwesterners and eastcoasters do much better with the ipa style. This isn’t bad by any means, but its so forgettable. I actually enjoyed the Freak Out more. From what i remember it had a nice smooth bitter and was definetly true to the style, but i can name about fifty better IPA’s.

pintbypint (2554) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2006
12oz. brown bottle. Pours medium clear orange, lasting white cap, two fingers in height, leaves good lace. Grapefuit hops are present in the aroma, though light. Flavour starts with fruity malt, some sweetness, grapefruit and orange hop notes mid way through then finishes with medium grapefruit bitterness. Good session ale.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Metallic golden-orange body with faint pale suspended particles and a scattering white head. Very bright, fresh green hop aroma with notes of candied citrus, apricot, and a lightly sweet pale malt backing. Sweet fruity hop flavor melds with fresh pale malts and a light toasty edge. Medium-high tongue-numbing bitterness. Overall impression is a little too sweet, but still very solid.

Very good IPA. Golden with no head. Fresh citrus aroma. The taste was of piney and fresh citrus hops. Clean bitter hop finish. I thought this was gonna be weak and tired, but it proved me wrong. Solid brew.

Taken from the website: "Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts" There is nothing significant about this beer. And I am confused becuase Ive heard more impressive work from this brewer. The color is an umimpressive weak copper with yellow hue. It doesnt stand a chance among any other IPA, nor any other brew. The hops are apparent, gave it a slight pine citrus taste. I actually suggest going to the website to read what the brewer says about the beer. Its just as confusing to me as the people who continue to buy it are.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2006
12oz bottle. Aroma: Citrusy hops with a bit of lemon and orange, Medium malt sweetness with some light graininess and a bit of caramel. A light touch of green apple. Appearance: Light copper in color and clear. Off-white head was full and rocky with nice retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Semi-sweet malt up front with a touch of caramel. Big grapefruit and some pine resin, followed by another hit of malt that leads into the finish. Medium-high bitterness is well balanced and refreshing. Palate: Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Overall: A great IPA that I wish I could find closer to home.

Nice to see these brews make it Atlanta. Pours a nice copper color. Smells and tastes of big apple and grape. Well balanced with a slight and pleasant bitter bite.

(07.23.06) 12 oz brown bottle from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. Hoppy aroma. Poured clear copper with small white head. Soft carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and hoppy flavor. Finished dry with light hop bitterness. Well-balanced with edge toward hoppiness. A refreshing drinkable hoppy beer.
