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 youíre on.

This IPA was more like a pale ale to me, ather than an IPA. Not real hoppy, not real memorable, in fact, not much of anything going for it. I also donít believe I got 12 ozs. of beer in my bottle because of the space left in my mug after pouring in the entire bottle. I thought it was 11 ozs., but after spending some time searching the label for the quantity, I found it listed in the contents (not where Iím used to looking, most brewers donít put it there). Another personal note: I dislike their commercial description. I will not buy this again, with all of the other GREAT IPAís on the market. Also, I donít know where they put the 43 different hops and 65 malts because I didnít taste that much of either. They probably put them the same place Budweiser puts them!

Pours a dark straw color with a head that slowly subsides. The nose on this one isnít all that big, but at first sip the bitterness really comes out of this one. Not very malty, and the bitterness kicks in right in the middle and doesnít let go. A pretty avg IPA, donít think I will buy it in the near future.

TampaBeer (256) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2007
This is a basic IPA, maybe even a little boring. Was not overwhelmed by flavor and there was not a lot going on in this $2 12oz bottle. Bland for an IPA, I thought.

Orange in color, floral hoppy aroma, taste is well balanced mix of malt and hops. A great IPA.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Moí, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Single bottle from Total Wine, Jacksonville. Pours a deep gold color with a slight head. Aroma is all hops, taste is malty and a little hop on the end. This is a very nice IPA at a good price.

thehinge (283) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Clear orange pour with an off white head that sticks around. Strong hop aroma. Caramel malts in the front end. Strong hop flavor in the finish. Very good.

TheRimmer (483) - Florida, USA - SEP 13, 2007
Oily, floral hop nose. Smells like a field in spring. Sweet full body backed by a wonderful blend of clean hops. One doesnt outweigh the other; nice balance. Great grasp of style.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - SEP 12, 2007
Bottle - deep, dark golden body with a beige head and tons of floaties. A nose full of grassy hops. Nice grassy hops in the flavor, as well, with balancing malt. Good, strong carbonation. A very good IPA.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2007
bright orange ale with some brown tones. frothy white head rises and falls quickly. nose is mostly swee malts. faint hint of hop pine is also noted. unfiltered hop particles can be seen floating throughout. a well balanced IPA that is predominately malty. citric hops a re strong but kept in check. mild piney finish rounds it out. a solid easy drinking IPA.

glennmastrange (2413) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Bottle. The aroma of this beer is what one should expect from an IPA, bordering on DIPA characteristics. Moderate malt aromas of roasted and caramel, heavy hop smells of pine and orange peel and light notes of dough and beef broth for the yeast with date, vanilla and cherry in the background. Head is white, frothy/creamy, mostly diminising with excellent lacing. Color is a sparkling clear amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic then the extra long finish is lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, between watery and oily with a carbonation between lively and fizzy. I think this beer rivals the top IPAs available in my area.
