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.

unlike some over the top american ipa, this is a well balanced brew. hazy orange colored appearance with yellowish head. floral aroma of grapefruit and citrus. full bodied, hoppy as should be. though i do think the 43 different hops and 65 various malt recipe is probably a commercial gimmick.

ChristianSA (368) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2005
Bottle. Very hoppy aroma with lots of citrus and strawberry marmalade. Flavor is hoppy, but backed up by a good malt foundation. Spicy and peppery. Bitter finish. A very well balanced beer and very flavorful for its modest strength.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Pours orange-amber with a two-finger white head. Standard west coast IPA aroma--citrus- and pine-heavy, with very light malt backing. Very hoppy, with virtually no malt flavor. Dry, grassy, and citrusy finish. A bit one-sided, but very good.

Gorbalev (2905) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 29, 2005
Bottle and on draught at Palomino’s, San Francisco. Very similar so I’ll rate together. Light orange, big thick off white head. Looks nice. Fresh strong citrus hop aroma. Very nice hop and sweet malt taste - very nice and balanced. Strong orange citrus hops but good mix of tasty malt. Falvourful bread like. Very nice IPA, I’d say the bottle tasted better than the pint, only because the of the sub par restaurant’s handling of it - it didn’t taste as fresh.

Nice crisp and fruity IPA with a sweet floral nose and nice body. A graprefruit citrus backing it against the malt and strong hopping. Good stuff.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Pours a clear orange/pinkish color body with a clingy, white foam on top. Aroma was sweet citrus and piney hops. It seems that all of the hop flavors are balancing each other out. You get about a half of a second of every flavor associated with hops. Never enough of any to really make me jump but all around a very well/over balanced ipa. Great session brew!

crazyvin (1896) - New York, USA - NOV 3, 2005
pretty good, piney aroma golden color with white frothy head. Flavor was hoppy but not over bitter. Its only draw back was that it seemed somewhat watered down it did not have a fullness on the tounge.

Emil (6066) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2005
Bottle. Orange colour with a big off-white head. Sweet very floral hop, citrus aroma and a sweet dry grape, hop taste. Medium body and a dry hop finish.

agl108 (765) - Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a medium orange with little head. Intense floral aroma with heavy doses of citrus fruit as well. Nice malty backbone that finishes like I just ate a piece of grapefruit. Terrific mouthfeel. Good IPA.
