COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
During a fierce storm on his voyage across the ocean, William Rahr could be heard yelling from the tall masted ship: "Roll on old sea! And when you are done, when the storm clouds have destroyed themselves, we will still be standing and drinking!" Today, we have created the ultimate ale for a voyage such as this: A German-Style IPA - a traditional India Pale Ale with German Influence. Our German-Style IPA is brewed with a blend of all German malts, hops, and yeast. It has a rich maltiness with both floral and spicy hop characteristics. So get ready and hang on - Stormcloud will see you through your roughest seas and straight on to smooth sailing. Editor’s Note: This beer was reconfigured in 2009 with new hops and yeast.

Slightly cloudy orange/amber pour, thin off white head. Nose is hops & malt. Bitter. Middle is sweet, slightly creamy malt and soft fruit. Finish is somewhat dry and bitter. Not an IPA to my taste, but an OK beer.

Hanuta06 (379) - Washington, USA - APR 23, 2014
Serving: from tap at Tolbert’s Restaurant. Aroma: none detected. Appearance: small, frothy off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Clear, medium-orange body. Taste: lightly sweet, floral orange initial flavor and moderately bitter finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: great. Interesting, sweet flavor at the front and hoppy bitter finish. Thick, creamy palate. I would like to drink this again.

TXBadger (1748) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2014
A very average style IPA. Pours a straw yellow color with white head. Not a whole lot on the aroma, but some citrus and pine. Palate actually has more malt than hop notes. Not terrible, but not something to go out of the way for.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 4, 2014
Draft @ DFW. Deep amber colour with a thin head. The aroma tells me this is old school IPA, without a prominent hop signature. Moderate bitterness, some biscuity, caramelly malts, medium body, sweetish finish and no real brightness at any point. Not a bad beer, but a little dated.

llcooldave (1161) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a dark copper color with a thick tan foamy head. Interesting aroma of dried fruit and spicy herbs. Kind of a clean fruity flavor reminiscent of a belgian ale. Toasty malt, a herbal Jagermiester flavor note as wel. Overall, interasting, but i am not sure if its an IPA...

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2014
[Bottle] Clear and light brown in color. Not much foam on top. Low carbonation levels. Mild hoppy aroma is overshadowed by caramel malts. Earthy hops in the taste. Low to moderate bitterness, but not much else happening here. Light in body. Taste reminds me of an ESB in ways. Tasting notes from 2012.

ZacM612 (273) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 9, 2014
Little bit hazy amber, off-white head. Aroma has some hops, but not very strong. Smooth and a little thin. Alright, but there are other IPAs I prefer.

ben4321 (4449) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from World Market - Houston Galleria, 10/8/13

Aroma: The nose is on the dull side with some grainy malts and some mild earthy hops
Appearance: It pours a clearish caramel-orange color with a beige head and plus lace
Flavor: The flavor is muted and a little buttery, it does not have enough bitterness for the style
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a soft carbonation, and a dryish finish
Overall Impression: This beer doesn’t taste like it has German influence or IPA influence. It isn’t a terrible beer or anything, but honestly, this one feels mostly like a miss to me.

deyholla (7580) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear golden orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of grass and light pine with a hint of resin and a pretty strong grain backbone. Flavor has lots of grass and grain with just a bit of pine coming through in the finish.
