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.

dark brown colour, but that might just be because i was in a dark area. the smell is mild and the taste was very good at the beginning but a little overpowering as i got more into the beer.

The head is thin and collapses quickly, but you are assaulted by wonderful hops, and grapefruits on the nose. Orangy hazy light brown. Beautiful rich body, with the hops and citrus cutting thorugh the malt in harmony...Hops heaven...excellent beer!

Superior hop aroma - pine, citrus, whole flower goodness. Nose is not without a wonderful nutty, caramelly malt presence. Perfectly balanced, strong chewy malts, Bitter flavorful hops. Not overly bitter, smooth and lasting flavor. Quality is apparent at first sip. Awesome.

Nutty, hoppy with hints of malt. Slightly lemon and citrus flavors come out as it warms. Very decent and well worth the drink.

Awesome orange color with a nice balance of hops and spices. The hops really comes out towards the end of the glass.

A great Triumph. I am a Hop-Head if there ever was one. An IPA at only 45 IBUs?... Proposterous! Except it's a beautiful ale. Very high in hop aroma. So they didn't throw the hops in at the first mention of a boil?... So what! A greatly aromatic IPA witha wonderful malt presence and great aromas. I love it whether you call it an American Pale Ale, an English IPA or,... I don't giva a shit. This is a well thought out recipe for a wonderful beer style!

redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - OCT 2, 2003
A bright orange colr with a small white head. This looks like it is thick as it pours. Dry pine, bread, and grapefruit aroma. Initially this was very good for about 3/4 of the 22oz bottle, the last 1/4 has turned very watery. A nice pine/grapefruit taste at first that is very easy to drink. Still a quality IPA that is very easy to make into a session beer.

PorterPounder (5703) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 12, 2005 Rerate Much better on tap a few miles from the brewer in Sonoma, California. Good citrusy hoppiness. Original 3.3 Interesting hard to place aroma - slightly fruity. Very light amber appearance with a decent size white head. Tongue-numbing grapefruity flavor - sticks with you for a while. Fruity aftertaste. Overall a decent IPA - nothing really separates it from the rest of the pack though - had better from this brewer.

Aurelius (4371) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Very hoppy, citrus, woody. Very long trailing bitter palate. Orange brew, good pup, clean label. Ding for the screwoff.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Nice amber color,small head with a decent staying power.Good aroma of hops citrus and some what spicy.The flavor was malty hoppy and grapefruit with an after taste being much the same a the aroma with a nice hop bitterness.Could stand to be a little more hoppy but then i'm not a hophead so this brew really hits the spot.
