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.

Taken from the website: "Made with 43 different hops and 65 various malts" There is nothing significant about this beer. And I am confused becuase Ive heard more impressive work from this brewer. The color is an umimpressive weak copper with yellow hue. It doesnt stand a chance among any other IPA, nor any other brew. The hops are apparent, gave it a slight pine citrus taste. I actually suggest going to the website to read what the brewer says about the beer. Its just as confusing to me as the people who continue to buy it are.

12oz bottle. Aroma: Citrusy hops with a bit of lemon and orange, Medium malt sweetness with some light graininess and a bit of caramel. A light touch of green apple. Appearance: Light copper in color and clear. Off-white head was full and rocky with nice retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Semi-sweet malt up front with a touch of caramel. Big grapefruit and some pine resin, followed by another hit of malt that leads into the finish. Medium-high bitterness is well balanced and refreshing. Palate: Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Overall: A great IPA that I wish I could find closer to home.

Nice to see these brews make it Atlanta. Pours a nice copper color. Smells and tastes of big apple and grape. Well balanced with a slight and pleasant bitter bite.

(07.23.06) 12 oz brown bottle from DiCarlo’s, Mundelein, IL. Hoppy aroma. Poured clear copper with small white head. Soft carbonation. Light-to-medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and hoppy flavor. Finished dry with light hop bitterness. Well-balanced with edge toward hoppiness. A refreshing drinkable hoppy beer.

12oz bottle. Clear golden color with light red hue. Thin white head. Nice malt and pine hop aroma. Nearly balanced mix of malts and hops. Some mild caramel malts give way to piney hop bitterness that run up the flavor. This beer isn’t too hoppy but just about right for a standard IPA.

Pour was amber gold, lots of foamy off white head. Nose was hops, lemon citrus pine grapefruit. Lots of floral and pine meddles into some grounding malts, finish is hops, grapefruit, very juicy, Very nice IPA. Thanks to my new friend Mark from liqouroutletwine cellars.

Totally thought I had rated this....then went to check my ratings and shockingly saw I haden’t. One of my favorite IPAs. Wonderful flower and pine notes that folds into that great malty taste. End with grapefruit and other citrus. Very nice. I think I’ll have another sip.
