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.

smaynard6000 (700) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling copper color with foamy white head. Aroma of citrusy hops with perhaps a touch of pine. Smooth bitter hoppy flavor. Similar to Maximus but more subdued. Damn good.

Great example of an ipa, full of hop aroma and tastes, and not too much abv.

A classic ipa. A lot of pine, heavy on the pine. Lagunitas loves their IPAs and I go back for them ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

StueyD (1346) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2015
A mid golden yellow coloured beer with a frothy white head. A huge hoppy aroma, grassy, piney and pithy citrus fruit. Dry mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, a mouth puckering bitter hop flavour. Grassy, piney, lime and orange citrus fruit with a dryness in the background that suggests malt. The finish is a lengthy bitter hoppy affair!

annunz123 (912) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 13, 2015
Citrus, pine, and some caramel malt in the aroma. Citrus and tropical fruit in a surprisingly light flavor. Flowery hops in the finish. Good, not great.

Armadill0 (286) - FINLAND - APR 10, 2015
Medium white frothy head. Clear, yellow-brown. Aroma has orange, pine, soap and plastic. Taste has pine, bitter hops, citrus, hay and a little malty grain. Strongly hopped. Mouthfeel is ok, just a bit on the watery side. Aftertaste is nice and sturdy. A good IPA.

thelynchfella (126) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 3, 2015
Poured copper with big white head. Lots of pine and citrus in the aroma. Nice and hoppy in flavour. Citrus, tropical fruits. Nice level of bitterness. Very good ipa

csaso (1572) - Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle - good size foamy head, light copper color, very big grapefruit hop aroma and flavor, mild malt backbone, the epitome of a west coast IPA of course, excellent (can't believe I hadn't rated this one before now!) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old rating. Pretty good option in IPA world…fairly available. Piney, citrusy, bready body, bitter and dry finish. No offensive, won’t blow any minds

Barnacle_Ed (29) - Milpitas, California, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Amber with generous white head. Piney and citrus smell. Taste is very bitter with a generous malt backing to it, with the citrus and pine showing through in the aftertaste. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Solid everyday beer.
