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.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle. TIny white head on top of a hazy golden orange beer with a little bit of "stuff" floating in it. Floral hoppy nose, similar taste. Nice bit of spice, complicated hops flavors blend nicely. Not a lot of malt, but not overly bitter. Quite drinkable, rather interesting, and one I’d love to find again.

nearbeer (4236) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Bottle. Clear orange-copper with a medium-sized and lasting head. Spicy tea leaf and floral-honey aroma. Initial flavor is earthy-spiced honey and pekoe tea, turns more to a toasted bitter nut and dried wood. Finally finishes with a pleasant woody, earthy, dry cocoa aftertaste. Palate is smooth and nearly medium-bodied with a dry finish. Not your typical West Coast IPA.

AmEricanbrew (6377) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 28, 2007
12 oz. bottle pours a clear amber color. The off white colored head leaves a nice lacing. Smells of mild floral hops. Medium bodied with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Has a sweet cream and caramel flavor with a mildly tart hop taste to finish. Lots of malt flavors. The hops are around but they’re not the highlight here. dec 2004

radagast83 (5813) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours a light amber color with a thick head. Aroma is of sweet piney hops. Flavor is hoppy, though not as hoppy as some of their other offerings. Hop lovers can’t pass this one over as it hits all the notes of a solid IPA.

Rated 8/26/07. 12 oz. bottle courtesy of ’Naka. Light golden amber w/ small white head. Sweet aroma wit ha bit of hop. Lovce the label. "Mortal combat of malt and hops on you palate." Awesome. Good hop after taste. Great beer. Love to get more.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 on tap @ papago. rich golden pour with a thin long lasting white head. aromas of caramel, citrus, pine and bubble gum. flavor is orange, grassy, caramel and pine without being overly sweet or hoppy. finishes dry and piney. it lingers for a while. medium body and carbonation. almost a nice sessionable ipa.... the sugar would get a bit annoying after a while...7/3/7/3/15/3.5

yespr (36078) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2007
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with a diminishing white head. Aroma is hoppy and with a slight malty dryness. Flavour holds dry fruity hops, lacks some sweetness to give some great flavours. Ends with a slight soapy and dry hoppy with a bit of bitterness.

milewide (1749) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Copper color and medium head. Nicely bitter hop taste, but not much malt in flavor or body.

kseecs16 (1213) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2007
Bottle. Pours clear light copper with minimal off-white head, some lacing. A subdued earthy grass aroma. Fairly balanced tasting with a metallic bitter finish. Medium boied with a faint lingering bitterness.

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Not a bad brew. Caramel, hops, and some fizzy wizzy. Honey coloured pour with a hint of rusty pipes. Some smooth malt hints, but mainly flat pine. Not supper hoppy though, so that was rather a sad note. But enjoyably sessionable.
