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.

This ale really hit the spot. Long hard day at work, a million one things to do before getting home, but all knowing that I’d picked up a bottle of this en route. A brief chill in the freezer, then into a big glass and mmmm. Classic pale ale colour, lingeringly frilly head, a real whaft of citrus and grass on the nose. Lovely balance in the mouth, light but with enough stickiness and solidity from a well constructed malt. Lingeringly bitter, just asking for the next sip. Yum.

Can’t believe I’ve never reviewed this before..... I’ve drank the shit out of this all summer and in the past. Looks like beer. Aroma is nice but mild, malty aroma, caramel, some pine, finishes with astringent. Taste is way better. Lemon, smooth, good stinging carbonation, bitter lingers. Love this beer it has tons of flavor and so easy to drink.

Pours golden, nice white foam. Aroma is fresh. Grassy and herbal. Taste is also aggressively herbal and grassy, hopped up. Feels quite light and not very alcoholic. Classic sample of West Coast IPA.

Keg at Ox184. Yellow pour, slight haze, white head. Hoppy citrus nose. Medium body, sharpish fizz. Bitter and citrusy. Always good.

Robe blonde et limpide. Mousse peu. Très résineuse. Zeste d’agrume et pamplemousse. Herbale. Arrière goût de marmelade. Amertume marquée. Longue en bouche. Une très bonne IPA.

Draft at the movie theater. Times are a changing. Lovely Ipa, balanced and does not overstay its welcome. Lively carbonation. Better than the movie. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from ’Spoons so, naturally, its probably 10 years old. Pours an amber colour with a slight head which soon recedes. Aroma is malty and earthy. Taste is earthy, malty, slight spruce, some herbs, caramel and medium bitterness.

Grzesiek79 (3518) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 15, 2015
IPA konkretne dosadne i bardzo goryczkowe. Przypominialo mi to IPA bardziej w stylu Angielskim niz amerykanskim. Smak gorzki mocno gozki, slodowosc niewielka, pianka takze minimalna, naturalne malo nagazowane. Klarowne. Ale smaczne i tresciwe gorycz doskonale w upalne popoludnie gasila pragnienie. Takie zawsze sobie wyobrazalem dobre IPA, i to wlasnie takie bylo. Polecam

Solid ipa, nose is very impressive with citrus flavors. Flavors come in a little less robust and finish with a woody character.

This is a great, well balanced IPA that is crisp and refreshing. Not overly malty or overly hoppy, as some might complain about with certain IPAs. I am not averse to imperial IPAs or IPAs that are stronger or happier than this one. I’m just saying that I enjoy it as much as my benchmark favorites, which often run quite strong, malty and hoppy. I really like this beer. Perhaps I am not off the charts to the far right of the scale in my preferences anymore. This brew deserves to be very popular, as it is served everywhere these days. It is well crafted and satisfies even a hard nosed, hop-head, high gravity beer snob like me.
