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.

hazy golden with a big frothy white head. looks like a classic west coast IPA. Intensely bitter grapefruit nose. Clean and full in the mouth, taste cleans up like a pilsner only really bitter and woody.

Nice clean top shelf ipa. Not as good or hoppy as the maximus but can hold its own. Citrusy & resfreshing, another great wake-up in the morning beer.

Orange color with bubbly white head. Aroma is slightly hoppy. Fairly well carbonated. Flavor is dminated by green vegetable flavor and citrus. Fairly thin and refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2007 Light, shiny amber orange beer with a big ol’ poofy head. The aroma is full of essence, malty yet citricly inviting. Very nicely pronounced grapefruit hop tones with a resiny feel and a sweet finish over the tongue. Very, very good.

Big fluffy head and thick sheets of lace topped off this glorious golden nectar. First the malt - yep, there's some in here, showing up in the thin stream of sweetness down the center of my tongue. The citrus/fruit aroma carries thru to the resiny hops full of thick grapefruit juice - I was surprised at how hoppy it seemed when the bottle lists 44 IBU. This would be perfect for a summertime picnic

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Medium gold with slight cloudiness, pleasant citrus, hoppy nose. Alhough balanced a bit on the hops side, this not a problem at all - the interesting malt flavors are there to enjoy. A very good IPA.

3.5
Brodie (540) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Classic citrusy American hop aroma. Clear golden color with an impressive white head. Hops dominate the flavor, with the balance on the bitter side. I would have liked a little more supporting malt, it seemed a little thin. Quite good, but if you have the choice, go for the Maximus instead.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2003
Clear,golden,a milky,lacey,bone-white,head. Aroma is bold,citrus,toasted grain. Mouthfeel is soft(carbonation)and not as bitter as I was expecting. Extremely bready/grainy flavors lead up to a grassy(hop),citric,slightly sweet finish. I totally disagree with some of the past ratings. This just isn't hops,maybe cold,it is but it doesn't even have a bitter finish.More hop,flavor.I dig it! I love these grassy,toasty,grainy Ipa's.Thanks M!

Reminded me of a Free State beer I enjoy, except for not as unique or tasty. Too citrusy, tastes as though someone squeezed in half a lemon.

3.5
grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2003
Fresh hops smell and character. Very citrusy; heavy on the "C" hops. There is some talk of a battle between the hops and the malt on the bottle; make no mistake, this beer exists to display the hops. Warm, dry finish. Enjoyable bitterness.
