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.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Rating 1090, kinda surprised to see this one on the shelves at the Macklind Ave Deli here in St Louis. But gave it a shot anyways. Dark copper with medium lacing that was short lasting. Nose kind of faint but when present was pleasant. Dry and thin. Overall pleasant. Would be interested in trying more of their stuff.

N3lson1 (528) - Long Valley, New Jersey, USA - AUG 21, 2015
Drank in a nonic glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Floral aromas with a sawdust aroma I usually only get from berliner and/or sours. Pours a reddish, hazy color with nice beautiful fluffly head. Crisp initial taste, with the middle being that sour sawdust taste, ending in hops. I was hoping for better from FCB but I’m not an IPA person.

nuplastikk (5090) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 21, 2015
12oz bottle. Filtered copper-orange bay. Big, frothy off-white head. The aroma is pleasant, mild lemon and grapefruit tones. An enjoyable IPA, a touch antiquated for 2015. Kind of a classic quality US example. Some English tendencies, but with a respectably bold hop profile too. OK.

TheGB (570) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Pours a nice amber with a lasting head. Weird aroma with some stone fruit. Taste is similar, disappointing

bartzluke (390) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 29, 2015
12 oz pour from refrigerated bottle into shaker pint. Golden, mostly clear, weak white head. Medium body. Nose is a little malty, a little piney, and a hint of a caramel. Taste is caramel malt, citrus, and a strikingly bitter aftertaste.

GarrettB (1233) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 30, 2015
August 12th, 2013 - Fort Collins’ Rocky Mountain IPA looks like an angry volcano cross-section from a science book after the pour, with a perfectly clear, cinnamon colored body and a huge, spewing, foaming head the color of an angry blush. The smell is sweeter and gentler, ripe with strawberries and apple jam, and the slightest suggestion of cranberry, too. The flavor is hoppy, of course, but with a good moderation. The foretaste relaxes to reveal sweeter notes, though these hold hands with the bitter hops - sweet and hoppy, and a long aftertaste. This is very enjoyable, one long sip after another. Do they still manufacture it?

DocJitsu (1295) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pours a clear golden with a sticky white head. Light notes of oak and medicine. Soft, full mouth feel. Malty, nutty, and hoppy flavors.

ScipioA (391) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Hazy copper pour with a giant tan pillowy head. Fruity and malty aroma, a bit of pine too. Flavor is a little more interesting with floral notes joining in. Thick, foamy and sticky mouthfeel. Nearly identical to every other region’s local popular IPA, good but not worth another try.

Average malty and hoppy ipa. Quality is bleh and it is not very balanced. Slight citrus flavor. Malty and bitter finish. Pours cloudy orange with a thick white head. Okay beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
