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.

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.

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.

Quevillon (2864) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 15, 2008
Bouteille de 355 ml bu au Beer Bistro (Toronto), le 11/7/08. Jaune ambrée, petit collet. Arome d’houblon un peu amère, des notes de pêches. Goût d’houblon pas très fort, un peu amère et légèrement fruité. Un IPA simple et plaisant!

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a 1/2 finger thick off white head. Very light spotty lacing. Has a sharp hop aroma. Citrus, pine, and herbal. Flavor is bitter hops with some light malt backing. The aftertaste just doesn’t sit right. Light to medium body. A decent IPA but doesn’t stand up to the Big Boys.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured copper in color with a beige head. Aroma of citrus hops and sweet floral hops, with a caramel malt backbone. Tastes of grapefruit, floral hops, caramel, lemongrass, and a little metallic hop taste in the finish. Its a very drinkable IPA.

twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 11, 2008
bottle... poured into my finally-aquired Lag pint glass. Clear, light copper color with not much of a head. Aromas underwhelm... some floral earthy hop notes blend with sweet caramel. Flavors start with light citrus and floral hop notes. Some orange peels, lemon zest, and grassy notes. Backbone holds up nicely with a not-overly-sweet toasted caramel bread malt flavor. A bit of a metallic twang in there. A bit thin on the palate, with a bit of hop bitterness sticking around. I’m a big Lagunitas fan, but I can’t say I’d necessarily recommend this IPA over some others available in the area.
