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.

TBone (12992) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled. Muddy brown, floating yeast, huge beige cloudy head. Hoppy aroma with metal and berries. Liquerish-like palate, very fruity yeasty, nutty, slightly unfermented. Hops rise in the aftertaste, which is still a bit sweet.

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled (thanks Stoutlover72). Hazy nutbrown colour, huge beige fluffy head. Aroma is yeast, American hops and lots of fruit. Flavour is nutty, hoppy and toffeeish. Finish and aftertaste is sweetish malts and hops with nuts in background. Pleasant!

Boutip (4863) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2006
Bottle: Poured a clear orangey color ale with a medium foamy head with average retention and lacing. Aroma of metallic hops with some caramel malt. Taste is a mix between sweet malt with some metallic hops and a bitter finish. Body is about average. Overall, this is an OK IPA but far from being great and lacking balance between malt and hops.

unclemattie (4262) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2006
dark orange in color. golden khaki colored foamy thin head.Hopped up aroma. of citrus, grapefruit. Tasted a slight bitter malt. Kinda cereal, then BAM! The bitterness finishes off strong.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Bottle. Pours with a slightly cloudy orange body with almost no head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly sweet, with orange, grapefruit and hops. Flavor is a bit sweet at the outset, followed by a decent hop bite. Finish is rather mild.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 15, 2006
Excellent hop aroma with some mild malt coming through. A nice clear copper colored beer with a light tan head. Very good hop flavor with a good biscut light toasted type malt flavor to balance. I like the malt balance as it isn’t so much crystal as it is like toasted malts grains that you would’ve toasted in the oven. A very good take on the IPA and I like the almost normal alcohol content, I can drink a 6 pack and not be too wasted!!!

asteele8 (322) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange hue with a nice white head on top. Aroma is hops, pine, citrus with a malt in the background. Flavor is not really there. Not getting much of anything really. For the aroma to be pretty hoppy there isn’t really much hops in the taste. I am not very impressed with this beer.

doubleipa (224) - Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2006
A moderate hops aroma and only a slight pine and citrus present. 1/2" frothy head, off-white. Amber color. Nothing spectacular with respect to taste of mouthfeel. Nothing really stood out with beer. A decent IPA that could be a good session beer.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Inbetween IPA and APA. Touch above average. 43 different hops and 65 various malts hodgepodge they claim creates slightly unique, bland, earthy bitterness.
