COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We ventured into unfamiliar territory to create an IPA to fit our style. An intense floral nose, firm balanced flavor and long hoppy finish make Rocky Mountain IPA our very own.

swoopjones (6326) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle via trade. beautiful looking IPA. Orange golden color, piney citrusy hop aroma. Flavor does not equal the visual beauty. Something seems a little off. Decent piney.hop flavor. I see some call it earthy, maybe but overall an ok IPA

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - FEB 19, 2008
12oz bottle, courtesy of artusory. Thanks, Ryan! Pours a deep, orange-golden color; light tan head with decent retention and lacing. Solid floral and earthy hops in the aroma; earthy malts and candy sugar underneath. Medium mouthfeel: slightly dusty and earthy malt character, with a decent amount of floral / earthy hoppiness; the dustiness detracts, but otherwise a solid, catty IPA. Medium, bittering citrus and earthy hops in the finish; some astringency.

Aurelius (4443) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - FEB 15, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Fruity, somewhat vanilla aroma. Hoppy, but not too heavy-handed. Caramel, hops, some milkiness. Buffered, slightly chalky mouth but finishes with some acidity. Lightly hazy, medium, ruddy brown.

Ibrew2or3 (7158) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 14, 2008
12oz bottle courtesy of Degarth. Thanks buddy. The pour is rather striking with clear copper body and slightly frothy yet slightly creamy tan head and cobweb lacing. The initial drag of aroma starts with pine and grassiness and then becomes tart grapefruit. Between the hop notes is a stream of sweet maltiness. The taste doesn’t seem to have pine hops initially but rather grapefruit hop bitterness bordering on wet/green hop leafs. Midway a pine hop bitterness becomes more and more apparent until it becomes the strongest flavor component into the finish along with lightly roasted malts and mild malt sweetness. Very nice tasting IPA but the aroma is a bit too subtle keeping it from being a great IPA to me.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2009 Pours hazy dark orange. Thick palate for an IPA and has the aggressiveness of a double IPA in the flavor. Apparently, it’s not for everyone, but I like it. Citrusy, grapefruity, nice piney bitterness. Might be slightly soapy finish to some, but mostly works for me. I think it’s underrated overall.

dpjuart (1092) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 12, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of Naka. Pours hazy copper with huge, rocky, off-white head. Pretty decent lacing. Nose is earthy and piny hops. Caramel and toffee are prevalent with a floral and piny hop flavor and an earthy bitterness at the end that lingers well into the after. Decent, run-of-the-mill IPA.

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Slightly cloudy amber with a bubbly, soapy off-white head. Strong floral and grapefruit aroma. This tastes like thyme to me. Very grainy and abrasive, not balanced at all. Unpleasant to drink.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2008
An enormous aroma on the pour, powerful floral, citrus, and piney hops. A lot of carbonation and a disappearing thin white head. Another nice but not great IPA. The taste is citrusy, lots of grapefruit and some floral hops. Sits very bitter on the palate and finishes bitter. It’s nice to see the style so embraced by craft brewers. But there is a clear difference between the good and the greats.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2008
The aroma is the stand out nice part of this beer, as the piney/floral notes explode much more than your a average ipa. The flavor is less appealing, but still very good. Could use a bit more maltbackbone as the resiny hop flavors come off as a bit bracing.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2008
12oz - Aroma of caramel malt and citrus hops. Pours transparent brown with a medium head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the hops being more intense and a little hot. Palate is crisp and tart. A nice session IPA if you don’t want to forget you’re drinking an IPA after a couple.
