COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No wonder there’s 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 lover’s dream.

Very good. Aroma is a little hard to figure out; there’s a slight soapiness. Flavor is interesting and enjoyable; rye tempers the hops nicely, with a light spice or herbal undertone and a kick of prickliness and hops at the end. (Total Wine beer tasting class 1/13.)

"This beer would have some serious potential fresh. Not sure of the age on my bottle, but you could tell it had sat for at least a little while. Pine peeeent but more muted than expected. Spicy and malty sweet, chewy body. Bittersweet spicy finish."

PorterPounder (5572) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - Abercorn - 22 oz bomber. Pours a slightly murky dark orange with an overabundant foamy white head - some quality problems it seems. Light spruce notes in the aroma, a touch of rye-like mint. Flavor s decent with some light citrus bitterness, a touch or rye-like mintiness, just a touch of white grapes. Mouthfeel has a decent thickness to it, but the annoying pour knocks it down a point.

mcberko (6568) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
On tap at The Underground, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of citrus, with secondary notes of rye. Flavour brings out loads of resinous hops, loads of pine, and moderate rye. The rye isn’t overdone, with a very medium body. Very piney and delicious IPA.

Bottle. Pours fairly pale yellow with white head. Nose is grapefruit with rye spice. More grapefruit in the taste.

kbudd19 (606) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Bottle, golden pour with a slight cloudiness to it, minimal head about a fingers worth. Aroma, nice hop presence but not overpowering, some mild citrus notes a bit of pine and some sweet malt. Taste, bitter up front, smooth and not as dry as I was expecting, light grains and a nice malty sweet finish. Really like this, very well balanced, not really anything that overpowers, well done!

drjay44 (2649) - Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2014
651 ml. bottle. Bottled 7/23/13. Pours a medium well retained off white head, with extensive Belgian lacing, over a slightly hazy, light fold (SRM 4) body....nose is light pine, resin, floral honey, hints of cereal....taste is moderately sweet, with light cocoa hints, light rye spice, stronger resin, pine, citrus hints, finishing with a moderate bitterness.....mouth feel, medium body, slight acid, carbonation adds light spritz.. This is a lighter IPA, with the rye not overly present, bitterness constrained, but all in all well balanced. It might be that this bottle is a bit too old. BJCP 8/3/14/4/6

Taste is very bready. It has a nice amount of hops. Light citrus aftertaste. This is an easy IPA to take down. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

solidfunk (4029) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Very nice citrus aroma that mixes with some nice malt. Alcohol is a little too prominent in this one though, and takes away from overall taste. Finishes with medium bitterness. Pours clear orange without much head or lacing. On cask at Churckkey.
