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.

Creamy head on an orange body. This is an IPA, very hoppy, very fulfilling. Now I call this a beer! It brings joy and satisfaction. This brew is well-suited for almost any occasion.

Love this stuff! Great drinking ale, has supplanted SNPA for me in the best commonly available beer here (CA, that is) Very Californian, solid hops and malt balance, with long finish. Not for the hedonist, but for the drinker.

This is a solid IPA. It pours the deep copper color with a hoppy & grapefruity aroma. The hops bite at first sip just like they should. The only negative for me was the finish. This beer has a dry finish that left a bad taste.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 On draft at McGregor’s. Gorgeous looking orange with thick creamy head. Standard full aroma of grapefruit. Very nice balanced malty and hoppy palate. Loved it. Had again at the Dinosaur with some spicy food. Worked very well with the food.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 9, 2008
Bottle. Very grassy aroma, a little caramel and tobacco. Hazy copper colour, small white head. The flavour is quite hoppy, caramelly, with a rough bitterness. Not a bad beer, but rather rough, I think.

stoutchap (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2008
A really decent IPA. Pours a coppery color with a small off-white head. A mix of citrus and floral hops in the nose. Nice mouthfeel - solid. Nice flavor profile - with a variety of hops notes. A little malt in the finish. Very drinkable.

Beerdedone (3062) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pourscopperwith a off-white one finger head. Aroma of floraland piney hops, light caramel, and malty sweetmess. Fairly balanced flavor of pine, grapefruit, caramel malts, with a light bitterness and a dry hop finish.

drpimento (2633) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Great IPA! Poured with a big frothy, foamy, textured head and some lace. Very nice slightly spicy aroma with a hint of earthiness. Ditto the flavor. Very clear dark amber color. Head lasts for a while. Very long hoppy finish. Not a citrusy hop character. This is the way I prefer it. This just rearrived at the Bodega Brew Pub downtown La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Pours a clear amber with a nice crème head that falls but leaves lots of lace. The nose is that intense piney perfume. Flavor is hoppy, but a bit of a tart edge hits me and I can’t say I like it that much. As I dwell on it, it seems almost wood like. Interesting? Yes. My favorite? No. Feel has a slightly higher level of carbonation to it that gives a bit of a bite and the liquid is well bodied. Overall this is a nice IPA, but that slightly woody tart thing that is going on kind of knocks it down a bit in my book.
