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.

smaynard6000 (1027) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling copper color with foamy white head. Aroma of citrusy hops with perhaps a touch of pine. Smooth bitter hoppy flavor. Similar to Maximus but more subdued. Damn good.

Bottle. Pours golden orange with white head. Aroma and taste are fruity, hoppy with some caramel notes. Nice bitterness and not too sweet. Very good IPA

Dacrza (881) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 3, 2016
DATE: December 3, 2016... OCCASION: Couldn’t get this poured fast enough, as PSU is already down 14 in the Big 10 Championship... GLASSWARE: Brew at the Zoo pint... pours a lively golden amber body that streams bubbles upward... a white, snowy single-finger thickness occupies the top shelf, with a distinct creaminess... the aroma is heavenly west coast hops, pine, tangerine, grapefruit, and orange peel... caramel and light bread aromas suggest balance... the first sip proves rewarding, with a wet kiss of graininess at the throat and a hint of tickle at the teeth... aftertaste lingers like a gentle reminder... medium-bodied and almost sessionable... the taste is heavy on lemon, tangerine, a counterbalancing bread malt, and some late resin--an IPA that knows what its purpose is... balanced, solidly weighted at 6.2%, and encouraging the next sip... not sure why this took so long to find my beer fridge, but as expected, an enjoyable classic....

Bouteille @Les rois malts. Une IPA très agréable, pas agressive sur l’amertume. On commence doucement sur des notes fruitées et une fin légèrement amère.

theprof (608) - Nottingham, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2016
Bottle. Aroma grapefruit zest and soiled straw. Pours orange golden with white froth unless your hand (like mine) is slow and steady. Crisp and sharp on the tongue the flavours are medium sour but the texture is more modest. For all the hype of 43 hop types and 65 malts, this is an IPA that will not form the basis for an evening out. It could disturbingly keep you in. Good but no cigar.

Pours clear with good head. Aroma is very citrus and floral. Strong bitterness that finds the right balance with sweetness of malts. Light easy finish, sessionable. Classic!

Bottle from tesco. Not bad, nice drinkability, well balanced, no harsh bitterness and a nice combo of hop aromatics and taste. Caramel notes minimal.

fajry (1685) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 18, 2016
Flasa Saltney. Zlata farba, bez peny. Vona citrusova, jemne karamel, grapefruit. Chut sladova, citrusova, velmi lahko karamel, ovocie. Pekna dlha dochut. Stredne telo, vyssia nasytenost. Pitelne pivo, aj ked ten karamel by tam nemusel byt.

AWS9 (660) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2016
Bottle. Plenty of Cali (???) hops, floral notes, nice malty lacing. Light finish, but plenty of hops to stick around. Pretty classic IPA, hard to disagree.
