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.

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2013 Pours an orange color with the smell of citrus. Although not my favorite type of beer I’ll try to be objective. Very hoppy and the taste of citrus orange was the most prevalent flavor. Very bitter, but not bad for an IPA

dchmela (3010) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2008
Pours a nice copper color with a thick long lasting white head. Hop aroma just billows out of the glass, like sticking your nose in a bag of hops. A few more whiffs and I get some malty caramel notes, also. Taste is nice and hop bitter. Not a lot of malt, but enough to balance out the the powerful hops. Finishes very clean with just a touch of the hop bitterness. Very smooth and drinkable.

Hazy pale amber with tiny short lasting head. Hoppy aroma with fruity and caramel notes. Flavor is mild sweet with hoppy end. Thanks for sharing Joergen.

22 oz bomber. Amber beer with a thick white head. Aroma is well-balanced. Caramelly malts with some light grapefruity hop aroma. Fruity hop flavour on the front, grapefruit and light orange/pine. Simple, fresh, tasty IPA.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with thick head. Aroma is grapefruit and hops, very pleasant. Flavor is grapefruit and floral, very crisp and refreshing. Cleans palate with very little aftertaste. A good, sessionable IPA.

highibus (796) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Pours a completely clear light amber color with a thick creamy head of 3 fingers. Aroma of spicy hop. Really nice aroma. Flavor is typical of a west coast IPA. Spicy, pungent yet crisp. I haven’t had a standard ipa in awhile. Something seems a little off, but that could just be me. A nice IPA. I might have to revist again in the future.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Golden color with a white head. Aroma is dominated by some nice citrus and assorted hops. Flavor is a nice hoppy mix of citrus and some floral/pine, plus a fairly sweet malt backing. Pretty good.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2008
Bottle from whole foods in san fran. Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Citrus and hops in the nose. Grapefruit and apricot dominate the flavour, before leading to a refreshingly crisp finish. This is excellent stuff.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2007
12oz - Aroma is citrus hops and a summer wind through a pine forest. Pours cloudy orange with medium head and good lacing. Flavor is interesting with the pine, citrus and earthy hops blending together with caramel and some sweet malt to balance it out. Palate is crisp and smooth. Just different enough to stand out and pretty tasty too.
