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.

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.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a light amber, off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit. Faint flavor of grain, obvious hops, with a very nice hop bitter, nicely balanced. Palate is med-body with med-high carbonation.....Overall, an excellent IPA.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - JUL 7, 2008
clear light amber body with a bit of a white head. There is a typical aroma with grapefruit, lime and a bit of cherry? The flavor is a kind of grassy IPA flavor with a lingering sweetness of melon on the finish. Not too big.

Haslinger (907) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Pretty hoppy and pretentious like the label. Too much going on in this one for me to really like it. It’s solid but not exceptional. Pretty good once it warms up more toward room temp. Maybe buy again

mattmc1973 (479) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2008
On draught at ’Rocks’ in Chicago. Color was deep amber with frothy off-white head. Aroma VERY hoppy, strong citrus, with accents of pine, flowers, and grass. Taste was malty, with bitter hop bite and citrus. Medium mouthfeel, pretty good beer, but I’m not a huge hophead.

RSRIZZO (1940) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Aroma is a strong citrus hop scent. Color is a bright golden with good carbonation and a nice head. Taste is juicy and bitter. Starting with a medium body it goes down with what I can only describe as a juicy feel. Finish starts with a sweet malt taste that turns quickly to a citrus, little lemon and a bitter bite. In the aftertaste the citrus brightens for a moment then fads leaving you with a mild bitterness. This is a fabulous IPA, its well balanced. Nicely bitter with a good malt tone and they keep the citrus in line.

johnnysmoke (104) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours dark amber with a large head. Fresh citrus and hops are the predominate aroma. Nice amount of hops, for an IPA. Not too dominate but, a significant part of the flavor profile.
