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.

pours a light golden color with a light dissipating head that left some lacing clinging to the glass. Great hops flavor. great IPA. Smooth drinking with a delicous bitterness at the finish. Very drinkable.

From 12 oz bottle- poured burnt orange color, head formed and went away slowly. Hoppy aroma with hints of fruit. Hits the palate with a small body, strong hop overtone, hop finish. I’m not a big fan of IPA’s, but I wouldn’t turn this down if offered, nice.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 28, 2007
From a bottle: Pours a copper orange color. Lightly malty and citrusy aroma. Flavor is somewhat malty with floral hops and citrus fruit rind flavors. Moderate clean bitterness. Clean and crisp finish. Balanced and very drinkable but nothing stands out about it.

BigMilly8 (389) - Wesley Chapel, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2007
From bottle : A medium dark orange color with a white foamy head. Nice floral hops aroma with pine. A heavy medium body. The flavor is a little spicey, but very well balanced with the hops and malts. A little bitterness stays on the tip of your tongue, its a nice aftertaste.

Orange body with lemon yellow head. Head has various sized bubbles in clumps. Lines of tiny bubbles line the sides of my pint glass. Lots of navel orange citrus aroma. Familiar nose of walking through a pine forest as well. Really full and spicy flavor/mouthfeel. Light aftertaste after the onslaught of hop bitters during swallow. The entire flavor stays on a packet on your tongue and disappears with the swallow. A light sharpness remains on the back of my tongue, but that’s all. Pretty good IPA.

6pack from Bevmo La Mesa. a little too much on the "herbal" side for me, never the less a great IPA.

$8.49 for a six pack at Broudy’s. Nice floral hop aroma on the opening of the bottle ( cheap twist-off). Flavor is mild sweet malt and hops to start and then completely overcome by the hop bitterness. Long bitter finish. Body is medium to light, bordering on watery. Also a bit mild in terms of ABV for an IPA. Emphasis is definitely on the bitterness with this one. Still a pretty good brew, even with the minor faults.
