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.

Aroma is very strong of hops and florals. Taste is very hoppy but it has a smooth finish that makes the beer. Great IPA, a little better than the double (wish there was a hundreth space) but maybe i just see it being more sessionable.

This here might be the most drinkable IPA I’ve ever had. Honey-amber in color, with a scent mostly of honey, with hints of malted grain and leafy, floral hops. Flavor is very dry, bitter and grassy, yet with touches of bread, and strangely enough, peas. That’s right. Peas. Gnarly.

Good IPA. Not great but good. There is nothing to dislike about this beer. There is a faint aroma of hops. The taste was similar. I found the flavor to be somewhat lacking. It is incredibly smooth and easy to drink. Knocking back a sixer would not be much of a challenge. If it’s available for a good price try it, if not, there are better IPAs for the money.

Very floral initial palate and smell. Slight grapefruit that discipates quickly due to slight sweeteness from the malts. The carmel flavor helps mellow the hops. Not the strongest hoppy IPA but hops are certainly evident and well balanced. One of the better IPA I enjoy on a regular basis.

Not very good. Fizzy and bitter taste, but not the good kind of bitterness. More of a peppery bitterness than I like. It is also kind of watery. Burnt toast malt taste does not complement the hops very well. Pretty drinkable though.

Poured into a pint glass and it pours an amber color. It has a very nice head that disapates about half way down the glass. It is consistant and well balanced through out. There are strong hop notes in the flavor and the aroma. The malt backbone helps mellow the hoppiness and makes it a bit sweet. It doesn’t sit well on the palate in the long run but it is good drinker none the less.

sja14 (108) - Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Amber color with creamy off-white head. Sweet and hoppy aroma with hints of earthy and piney spice . Pretty mellow flavor with an IPA. Obvious hoppiness but really mellowed out by caramel maltiness. A nice smooth IPA that almost seems more like an Am. Pale Ale.

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Small white head sits atop a clear dark golden brew; not too strong on the hoppy side or the malt side. A real nice IPA.

Impressive IPA. Tons of hops. Makes it sharp bitter, but the abundance of malts balances and saves this one from the junk pile. Good. Not great, could be better. Add some spcies and fruit and you got the money.
