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.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2003 Eh.. Not fantastic but not bad. I had expected this to be another west coast hop monster and it just didn't show up. Sort of reminds me of Quail Springs IPA. Sure the hops are there but at a subdued level. A thoroughly enjoyable brew but not an "In your face IPA". I still have to try Stone Ruination and Dogfish 90 minute both in my fridge.

Light orange color with decent lacing. Malts seem to dominate the aroma. Lemon flavors that really don't seem to finish.

satanda (410) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 19, 2014
Poměrně dobrá a výrazná IPA. Trochu méně hořká, než většina evropských, ale jinak chuť, barva, pěna atd. super. Příjemné překvapení. Lahváč v San Franciscu.

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.

bubblehouse (230) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 14, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with a tame aroma. Hoppy and fruity but just and average IPA.

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

.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.
