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.

12 0z. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip glass. Nice amber IPA color,1 finger head that dissipates into lil’ pillowy islands. Piney/resiny, hop & big malty aroma nose. Hop dominate mouthfeel with all the malts following through on the backside giving a chewy sensation. Seems nicely balanced & very drinkable,will seek again.

In my opinion, this is the gateway IPA for newbies to the style. An oldie but goodie that is always a reliable fallback choice. The malt shines through more than the hops making it a PG-13 IPA by today’s standards. Mildly herbal, spicy and mostly biscuity to slight toasty malt on the nose. The flavor imparts a friendly hop bite that is citrus and floral enveloped in a toasty sweet malt character. Seems more English style inspired than west coast.

Kosmokrator (847) - ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Alla spina. Una IPA classicissima, vellutata e dissetante con un marcato uso di luppoli "americani" che ne fanno un complemento dissetante e perfetto per accompagnare una bella cena in un pub.

sjogro (2495) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle at home. Clear dark golden, thin white head. Sweet malts, citrus fruity, grassy, resiny sweet and medium vegetal bitter, some grapefruit zest. Full malty body, heavy oily/gelly texture, soft carbonation. Nice but not amazing. Less fresh hops and more malt than expected.

bonev (231) - POLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Piwo klarowne w kolorze bursztynowym z dosc obfita piana ktora pozostawia ladny lacing na szkle. W aromacie owoce tropikalne, cytrysy i ananasy. W smaku zywiczna goryczka na srednim poziomie. Czuc slody karmelowe i troche biszkopty. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie. Piwo dosc gladkie i przyjemne ale przydaloby sie troche wiecej chmielu zeby wszystko zaostrzyc.

MrHangover (3896) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2016
Bottle @ GMDH. Pours a hazy darker copper beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of moderate citrus, zest, grapefruit and a big malty, bready sidenote. Flavor is light bitter, grassy with hints of cookies and very easy drinkable and sessionable. Carbonation is fairly high, aftertaste is long and light bitter. Very decent stuff.

On tap at the Shacklewell Arms. Just hops for the nose, and a good malty hit in the taste. Perfectly fine but not very exciting.
