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.

Hoppy flowery scent that you can about taste but no lingering bitter flavors. An easy to find favorite and a real pleasure on tap.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2007
On tap. A very tasty beer with some industrial flavours...highly hopped, earthy and piney with sweet brown sugar notes and a great dry finish that’s not too bitter. A bit uneven but well-made.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2007
Bottle... Poured an amber tone with big white head which dissipated into some nice lacing. Malty and hoppy aroma, flavors of hops, barley malt, citrus fruits and sweet caramel like taste. Mild, crisp finish.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2008 Deep clear copper body, topped by a creamy and dense off-white head. Looks inviting. Aroma: grapefruit/citrus, leafy. Flavor: some citrus presence, a little balancing sweetness, earthy bitterness and maybe something like pepper. Very traditional IPA.

WeeHeavySD (3361) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 20, 2007
Draft at an Irish pub in Berkeley, CA. Pours orangish with a light white head. The aroma is hoppy citrus. The taste is big very big on the hops for a regular IPA. Nice overall feel great IPA.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Centimeter or so of head. Floral and citrus hoppy aroma. Good IPA. Would buy again if my favorites weren’t around.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 19, 2007
Pour was a nice light copper color with a two-finger off-white head. Head hung around for a bit and offered some lacing. The aroma was of floral hops, some citrus and underlying sweetness. Pretty one-dimensional flavor with hops dominating and not enough sweet malt to offer any balance. Slightly metallic mouthfeel.

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2007
12 oz bottle - pours clear rust with lots of suspended particles that aren’t going anywhere. White head leaves very nice lace. Fruity and floral hop aroma is quite beautiful. Body nicely robust, though flavour is slightly one dimensional. Fruity hops, but with a good amount of balancing malt. This is a quality IPA, one I will definitely get again. 43 different hops? Wow - nothin’ like the good ole US of A for some old fashioned extremism.....
