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.

Bottle was a little past its prime, so I’ll take that into account. Pours a hazy orange with a nice white head. Aroma is a decent balance of pine and citrus notes. Taste is very much the same, although not as bitter as you might expect. Very well-rounded, if somewhat forgettable. Good beer to try once and have occasionally, but I would quickly become bored if I got a 24-pack of this.

ChadPoole (102) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2016
Pours clear orange gold with a white head that lasts and laces the glass.  Big aroma of citrus and grass. Hoppy with citrus and pine taste. Good bitterness. Good beer.

ljthiessen (1022) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 25, 2016
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small off-white head. Aroma is caramel and citrus zest. Taste is much the same, light for an IPA but balanced, caramel and citrus with a bit of a grassy note. Solid IPA.

Dry citrus hops. Juicy. Don’t have much to say about it really. A basic, quality IPA.

Maersk (82) - MOLDOVA - APR 22, 2016
Amber color. Huge creamy thick head. Some carbonation. Smells grass, herbs, hops. Very floral. Medium a bit oily body with bitter focus and nice long bitter finish. Tastes usual IPA. Good, but not exceptional

Svårbedömd. Dracks efter många andra öl. Okej humle men inget riktigt bett. Vi får testa igen ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lesifflebiere (1550) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Le liquide est couleur d’or jaune, avec de petits lambeau de mousse en surface. Le nez est de fruits jaunes et de toffee. Au goût, ce classique de la côte ouest se présente comme une IPA qui laisse les malts voler la vedette par moments ; savoureuse sans être intense, les houblons y sont mais sans tout arracher sur leur passage. Pourrait être un peu plus fonceuse, mais si on aime les bières un peu plus subtiles, c’est un choix intéressant.

Starts with citrus followed by a strong pine taste, all around a very complete IPA

jasonbenali (76) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2016
Pours amber brown with slight cloudiness and plenty of carbonation. Consistent thick white head. Aroma is not that pleasant with a soapy note coming through amid the pine, honey, mint and orange peel. It’s sweet although there is bitterness there as well, but not enough to balance it out. Hint of booze on the nose, but it’s watery for its ABV and has a slightly unpleasant aftertaste. If I hadn’t had this a few times before I’d think this one was a dud that was over-oxygenated. At least it’s consistent! I want to like this given it’s availability and origins, but it’s a real disappointment.
