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 youre on.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a clear, copper body and covered by a fluffy, barely off-white head that leaves decent lace. Aroma is pungent with pine C-Hops, caramel, dust and lightly estery. Taste is pine hops, light citrus, caramel and tea. Creamy bubbles and mouthfeel.

GranvilleTim (1854) - Granville, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2009
Reddish-Copper pour with white head. Malt and little hop aroma. Malt flavor is more prominent than anything else. Gives a dry aftertaste and leaves a nice malt flavor. Well-balanced beer that leaves a nice lacing on the glass. Drank it right out of the cellar(55F). Could of been a little cooler, but very tasty anyway.

foosnbrews (145) - Parker, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2009
Beer poors golden with a nice white head. Aroma is subtle but has nice notes of malt and hops. The flavor is enjoyable. I was a bit suprised expecting a lot more hopiness but the beer was extremely drinkable. Flavors that came out were a bit of malty sweetness with citruis and grapefruit notes. Palate was nice with a bit of stickyness. Overall the beer was good. This beer would be something I would recommend as summer IPA that you could have a few of.

Snot19kilo (103) - Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Pours gold. light head no retention. no lace. Aroma- hoppy, spruce grass. Taste is grassy, alcohol and falls to a bitterness. Finish is strong bitter that lingers. Im not a fan of IPAs.

Case (300) - GERMANY - APR 22, 2009
Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam - one of the incredibly rare places in Europe where you can buy some US craft beer to try.
Pours a beautiful deep clear orange with minimal head that quickly disappears, leaving a fine lacing. Strong sweet hoppy aroma, chewing gum, pine resin. Taste starts out quite sweet and malty and then gradually a bit of grapefruitish hops comes through. Quite herbal, pine trees and caramel. Very flavourful for a beer of such moderate strength. Low carbonation but crisp mouthfeel. Clean smooth taste but a bit too sweet for me with not enough hop bitterness.

hogan873 (451) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2009
Golden amber body with a thick lasting tan head. Nice aroma of pine and citrus, very fitting for an IPA. The palate is a bit light, but pretty smooth. The flavor is not quite a good as the aroma would lead me to believe. Biscuit malt sweetness up front is quickly pushed aside in favor of bitter grapefruit and a hint of pine. Not much aftertaste, just a bit of bitterness. A decent IPA.

MeisterBrew (138) - Cheyenne, Wyoming, USA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is light... fruity hops with a hint of grass. Taste is light for an IPA. Starts out decent with a nice hoppy flavor with an undertone of sweet malt. The aftertaste is not pleasant though. An unnatural bitterness that didnt seem to taste right. Not a horrible IPA by any means. Just wouldnt be the first one I would reach for from the cooler.

Fresh and clean. Aroma of cascade hops and sweet malts. Taste is sweet and hops linger a bit. Well made and very consistent.

MitchWayne (263) - Kokkola, FINLAND - APR 10, 2009
Grassy and hoppy ipa with a rather dry earthy taste. Didnt care much for it, just not too much going on with this one plus there was some unpleasant taste lurking in the background reminding me of carpet cleaner. I wonder if this was gone off or something.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - APR 8, 2009
Bottle. Amber/dark golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma: Tropical fruit, dried fruits, bisquity malt, light hops, citrus. Taste: Tropical fruit, citrus, toffee, grain, bisquity malt, menthol, a bit salty. Not very bitter or grapefruity at first, but bitterness and grape grows in the finish. Medium body and light carbonation.
