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.

Pours a clear golden with a a medium white head. Very strong citrus and herb aroma with some caramel and coffee malt. Despite the very strong hops aroma it is not overly bitter and has a bit of a fishy or moldy/cheese taste that isn’t as bad as it sounds. Medium to full body with a somewhat creamy texture and slight bitter finish. This is a great IPA. Especially if you like cheese, sounds weird I know but it gives it a unique character. Up there with the best I’ve had so far.

For some strange reason this is the first time I’ve ever had this beer. I love Lagunitas for their west coast style IPAs and was expecting their flagship IPA to be of the same quality. This is definitely good, but it’s missing the bright, popping citrus and tropical flavors I’ve come to know this brewery by. Definitely more malty than I am used to, but good in it’s own way, and has a nice hop presence in the background and mild bitterness in the after taste.

Avg IPA, not bad, not great. I usually see Maximus next to it in the cooler for the same price, so choosing this over Maximus is not wise.

Pours a clear golden color with a tame aroma. Hoppy and fruity but just and average IPA.

Bue à la pression. Blond doré, CO2 bien présent. Légère dans son ensemble, houblon plutôt discret. Correct.

Beerhammaren (893) - FINLAND - APR 10, 2014
.5l on tap @ Vihreä Haltiatar Pours clear golden with medium high, stiff head. Aroma is hops, fruits, malts, exotic fruits. Some berries. Flavor is hops, malts, herbs, brown sugar notes. Odd side taste. Something like plastic.

Noting impressive about this one. My experience was that it was rather flat right through. This is not a stand-out IPA.

Had on tap at Wayside in Biltmore. Totally solid IPA. Pours just on the orange side of the pale/ipa spectrum with a decent head. Not overly carbonated. Taste is reminiscent of all the good west coast IPA’s in terms of malt and hop profile- pine, resin, citrus, grapefruit.....blah, blah. Well balanced and not too dry on the finish. Just a totally solid IPA. Nothing spectacular but accomplishes what it set out to be in spades- a very enjoyable, sessionable, not-lacking-in-the-flavor department IPA.

Very sweet on the aroma and cloying on the palate. Did not taste right at all for style like a sweet Belgian vs an ipa.
