COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
...created to aid in deciphering the puzzles along life’s road, and interpreting signs in the voyages of the spirit. Brewed in homage to the wisdom of visionaries everywhere who blaze paths into uncharted territories. Our take on an India Pale Ale (IPA.) A deep golden amber ale with a rich up-front malty nose finishing with a big, hoppy bite. Dry-hopped to finish with a big fresh (Cascade) hop flavor. Fermented with our 150 year old strain of top-fermenting yeast.

Ungstrup (30497) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a huge orange head. The aroma is sweet grassy with light spicy notes - I find the aroma a bit sharp. The flavor is malty with notes of oranges lingering in the background, on which is dry spicy notes and light hoppy notes. In the beginning I find the hops mostly English in impression (Nothern Brewer?), but towards the end it get citrusy and Cascade-like. And the body is a bit thin.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2006 Amber-beige colour. Light woody hop notes in the aroma with a whole grain bread background. Moderate bitterness. Quite woody. Slightly watery texture. Ok, but that’s it.

brokensail (13278) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours amber in color with an off-white head. For an IPA, I notice a distinct lack of hops on the aroma. Pretty much all toffee, bread, and toasted malt. Just the slightest hint of floral and citrus peel notes. The flavor is just as lackluster. Light floral notes, no bitterness, and mostly just bland bread. A light sweetness of toffee and caramel. That’s really about it.

bhensonb (12469) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours clear amber/copper with an off-white head. Aromas f fruit and roast malt. Med body or better. Flavor is caramel with a lot of earthy hop. Maybe some citrus and floral. The cascade citrus doesn’t seem prominent. It’s very balanced, quite tasty. Hop burn is slight. NW no. Good ale, yes.
