COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No wonder thereís a hop shortage. Brewed special for the OBF, Rocket Dog launches four types of hops at five different intervals into this brew. Roasted barley and rye, pale and Munich malts give this beer a red tint. Fermented a little on the dry side, this thirst-quencher is a hop loverís dream.

NICE! Pours a straw yellow with tons of carbonation. Way too much head though. Good thing is it stays! Nice floral aroma. Taste is of the hops and rye in a unique combination that is nice. Aftertaste is nice and bitter. Glad I donít have to share this bomber!

Bottle. Light orange with a solid white head showing great retention. Primarily piney hop profile with underlying crackery malts. Nice bitter finish. Solid. Not finding anything to give away the rye character, but a great IPA regardless.

April 2012 from bottle. Poured copper color with an offwhite head. Aromas of grain, malt, pine and grapefruit. Grassy flavors with pine and hops. Good balance.

First gusher I've had that was an IPA. Odd. Pours cloudy yellow in color. Bitter, but not crazily so, and is balanced by a good rye backbone. Hop flavor is primarily pine. Little sweetness in malt. Overall good, once you get past the overcarbonation issues. B. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy amber with an average but sticky white head that leaves tons of lace all the way up the glass. Aroma is fruity, citrus, and some sweet malts. Taste is a bit spicy, citrus, grass, medium bitterness, sweet grapefruit, and light malty sweetness.

Reimer96 (1335) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2013
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy lacy white head. Aroma of citrus hops, candy, lime, pale malts and sweet fruity esthers. Taste is citrus, spicy rye malts, grapefruit and candy lemon lime. Nice smooth crisp bitterness throughout with moderate carbonation, excellent rye ipa.

jsmerig (1289) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Pours a golden amber with a little reddish tint. Aroma strong with rye and floral hops. The taste is more of the same sweetly spicy at the start followed immediately by strong floral notes finishing with a stinging sharp hop bite that leave a clean palate. A strange note of Banana appears in the end. Complex, but too much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
