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 youíre on.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 05.31.14. A: 2 finger fluffy white head. See through caramel body. S: Grapefruit with sweet malt. Also some daffodil. T: Malt and brown sugar dominate. Spices are subtle. M: Creamy. Somewhat chewy. O: This was a strange experience. A Lagunitas beer that is malt forward? Maybe I bought an old bottle. The hops were barely there and only on the back end. There was some bitterness but not much. This did not seem like an IPA. If the bottle was ok, this was a rare miss for Lagunitas. EDIT: Since early 2014, Iíve had more of this and the flavor is the same. It just doesnít seem to be very hop forward.

On draft. Amber color with one finger white head. Tropical aroma. Taste is bigger than the aroma. Tropical fruit and some pine. Delicious.

malvrich (63) - durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 14, 2015
A: Clear deep gold color. Not much head but glass was cold. Average to below average carbonation visible. Little retention S: Forward strong hops but a very noticeable malty sweetness in back. Great balance on the nose. T: Hop bite first but with a quick follow up of malt biscuit flavor. The slightest nuttiness Bitter but short hop finish. Again, well balanced in my opinion. M: Not much out of the ordinary. Light body with a good clean finish. Very good level of carbonation though. Not too fizzy, not too flat. I like it and could knock back several. O: Impressive in its simplicity, this is a good, nicely balanced IPA that I could drink regularly as it is not a hop "bomb" which I donít care for. Well made beer that I would buy again.

Aroma is a bitch slap of hops. The taste garssy, hoppy and absolutelt perfect. A flower cloud raining life and happiness over you.

VeinAle (100) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Smells of pine and citrus. Tastes of hops and a little malt. Looks like an IPA and has strong lacing against the glass. There is a prevalence of grain in the taste. Good all around, not overly distributed in my area. Was glad to give it a whirl.

Erasmus_ro (1632) - Alabama, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Tap @ Bredog Helsinki, thanks bluus. Pours orange with a small, off-white head. Aroma is hoppy piney, light citrus. Taste is grapefruit, citrus, caramel, pine. More caramel. Surprisingly light, good carbonation. Tried in London a couple of years back, much better and fresher there.

tricksta_p (1588) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
Aroma of slightly sweet malt, caramel, tropical fruits, pine, resin, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a medium bitter finish. Not a fruity hop-bomb, but a nice IPA regardless.
