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 golden/orange with thick off white head. Huge piney, hop aroma. Taste is pine, and citrus hops. Aroma was better than the flavor. Still a decent IPA.

On Tap - Taco Mac, ATL. Great IPA. Nice golden color - great hoppy taste to this. Have had a few better IPAs, and a lot worse. Definitely worth a try.

gpekar (486) - Florida, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Poured a clear bright golden amber with a nice creamy, foamy head. Mild malty grass aroma with hints of hops. INitial crisp taste with just a mild hoppines. A little bitterness develops on the finish.

Kodos (205) - USA - JUN 22, 2008
nice amber color. definite cascade overtones in the nose and immediately in the flavor. Sweet malt with an end that was really dry, kind of like white toast. Middle of the road IPA Imo

robinvboyer (3962) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2008
typical IPA pour, dark amber, orange color, good head, and nice sticky lacing on the glass. Nice fresh aromas of citrus, lots of grapefruit, and a touch of pine. Not much malt here, and the hops are a little tame in the flavour, a solid IPA, nothing to knock your socks off, just a good daily drinker.

Plovmand (7665) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours light, clear orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, grass and oranges. Taste is smooth, balanced, lightly bitter and hoppy. Highly drinkable though not incredibly flavorful.

from a bottle, pours the standard copper color. Something was off in the aroma, it sorta smelled like new shoes or fresh leather. kinda wierd. After gettin past the aroma the flavor was good. piney, citrusy hops with some malt background. i’ll have to revisit this.

Draught at Woody’s in downtown Raleigh. Pours copper, with a medium white head, and lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, with a bit of pine and grapefruit. Flavor is similar, with a decent malk backbone and caramel. Excellent beer.

RunDWP (203) - San Jose, California, USA - JUN 17, 2008
22 oz. bottle. Very strong, piney, hoppy aroma made concerned I was about to be hit over the head with a bunch of hops. I was pleasantly surprised how well balanced the flavor was. Nice malt background, with piney, grapefruity hops in the foreground. Slightly creamy mouthfeel. Looks fizzy in the glass, but nice level of carbonation. Really liked the whole balance and composition of this brew, which is saying a lot, since I’m not a big IPA fan.

This IPA is definenlty the most interesting IPA I’ve had. Everything id typical of an IPA except the flavor. To use that many hops in on ebatch of beer and still make it taste good is a gift. A gift from the Lord Himself I believe. This is a well rounded IPA in every sence. This was my first IPA that spun my head around when I first tried it cause I wasn’t used to all those hops yet. Then when I was, and tried a lot of different IPAs I came back to this one and was very impressed. Quite intreging indeed... hmmmm. I like it alot.
