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.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 12oz bottle: pours brownish orange with an off white head. Light notes of cascade? hops and spice. The flavor is well executed different hops with different spices and bitterness. They cover the palate rather nicely. Itís no IIPA so the hops arenít intense but they are very well balanced with each other.

yngwie (13562) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2006
Bottled. Golden, almost clear, with an off-white head. Citrus, malt, sweetness and pine in the aroma. Malty, sweet flavor with citrus and pine. Full body, and a lot of bitterness in the finish. Bitter but pleasant. (060720)

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - JUL 29, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2007 22 oz bomber from local grocery. Reddish Amber. Hoppy citrus aroma. The taste is fair but more hoppy than I like. Way too much bitter astringant aftertaste.************** 6/28/2007 rerate-11 months after original rating which was 8/3/6/3/11=3.1****** 22 oz bottle via Rothís. Pours a semi-clear amber with an average sized head. Nose is lemon, orange and floral hops. Taste the same with some grapefruit and pine in the finish/aftertaste. Body is medium. Carbonation average. An above average IPA.

blackmurder (226) - sadf, Hawaii, USA - JUL 22, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2007 I like how IPAs rest in my mouth. Aroma is of heavy grapefruit, hops, and irish ale yeast. Flavor is a bit strong but grapefruit, lemon, and some tangerine can be tasted. It looks like any other IPA really. Pretty decent, but nothing amazing.

greenhorn1 (812) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JUL 20, 2006
22 oz bottle. Pours a nice red amber with a decent head with tons of lacing. You can smell the strong hops aroma when you pour it into a glass. There is a nice balance of carmel malt and hops, but I like my IPAís with more of a bite. Citrus and pine linger on the palate. Overall: not bad, not great.

GuilTTy (728) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2006
On tap at the Yardhouse in Pasadena, CA. Amber with reddish highlites suporting a 2 finger off-white head. Herbal, citrusy aroma with plenty of hops bouncing about. More of the same in the flavor - the hop profile is quite high and slightly over the top in relation to the malt but still not particularly aggressive. Mildly carbonated and short, bitter finish with a touch of grapefruit. 43 hop varieties?? Not so sure what thatís all about aside from marketing but the brew itself is a decent IPA.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - JUL 18, 2006
12oz bottle poures amber/gold with thin white head and mostly aromas of carmel. Low hop bitterness with a citrus hop finish. Overall an alright beer, but more of a strong pale than an IPA.

Juelze (1138) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Pours an amber color with thin white head. Nice lacing. Has a "earthy" hop aroma, not as clean and fresh as some IPAs. Flavor is very citrusy and also has quite a malt (caramel) background. Has a bitter finish. Solid IPA but nowhere near Smuttynose or Tyranena.

Nose is hops with a little caramel malt note.Amber in color with a small orange-tinged head. Very nice hop flavor with medium bitterness and some citrsy notes; aftertaste is slighlty bitter.
