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.

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.

BillKismet (3887) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2009
Bronze with consistent carbonated bubbles feeding a thin, but resilient head. Floral hop aroma with slices of peach and apricot, and orange marmalade with a deep musk overhang, then a last dash of grapefruit and catbox. Easy hop flavor with a sold malt backbone. This one has been fridged for a year, so that may have subdued the hops a bit. Well balanced, with a mild refrain of bitterness.

mistersinalin (381) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - APR 4, 2009
With a super large I-P-A on the front of the bottle, I expected to be wowed. This is a fair IPA with a little bit of a dirty after-taste to it. Great color, okay balance, but need more of a hop presence.

Copper color. Citrus and sweet caramel balance. Nothing over the top. Good balance.

Borresteijn (6550) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2009
Bottle from De Bierkoning. Clear amber colour, light orange white head. Sweet fruity and hoppy grapefruit aroma. Flavour is fruity, citrus, grapefruit, a bit of caramel, dry hoppy bitter finish. A bit less than medium bodied. A nice "light" IPA.

eyesolus (64) - Mill Creek, Washington, USA - MAR 17, 2009
12oz bottle; not too hoppy; nice starter beer for the evening; this would be a good craft to have on hand for those new to this type of beer. (#49)

Botella, courtesy of Pinball. Unclear golden amber colour with a medium frothy mostly diminishing white head. Quite hoppy fruity piney nose. Good mothfeel. Fruity hops and citrus in the flavour along with some yest, caramel and pine with a bitter well lasting finish.

Bottle thanks to roborb!
Shimmering transparent copper-amber, small, frothy beige head. Nose is very sweet, loads of caramel, burnt pb cookies, and minor tea and leafy hop. Flavor is similar but theres more nuance, some bitterness from the hop emerging with minor grapefruit citrus. Moderate body with juicy mouth, a little salty, lingering bitterness in the finish. Overall the hops lose here, but if you dont believe in style-points, then this is a sweet and juicy beer, very drinkable.
