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.

Not bad. One I had was bottled June 2012. Would be better fresh. Munich hops appear the strongest aroma wise. Might try the fresher one next time.

Pours cloudy light yellow. Aroma, spicy almost Brett like?, some perceptible hop aroma. Nice smooth start, backing into hop flavor and touch bitterness. Flavor seems Brett like, too. Nice spicy note with a great balance with hop flavor. Quite a nice IPA, rye or not. Smooth and balanced for IPA, nice citrus notes, pretty subdued. Need to drink more rye pas apparently. Solid!

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"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 (5697) - 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 (7074) - 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 (707) - 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!
