This ninety-minute west coast-style IPA has nine hop additions of Warrior and Amarillo and comes in at a whopping 90 IBUs. A tongue-twisting treat for the hophead in all of us!

THOUGHTS: Rather nice. R.J. Rockers continues to surprise me. This had the balance of a double IPA in the style constraints of an ordinary IPA. It was fairly simple, but put together in the right proportions. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a medium to dark, orangey amber with a small, off-whte head that left good lacing. It also had small, medium and large particles of a thick density in the body. It was bottle conditioned. The aroma had moderate caramel malt; light bread and grain; moderate to heavy pine, grapefruit and orange hops; and burnt toast with jam. The initial flavor was moderate to heavily sweet and fairly bitter; while the finish was rather sweet and rather to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was citrus hops, caramel, brunt caramel, orange and a little burnt toast bitterness. It go very citrusy near the end. The medium to full body was slightly oily, a bit syrupy and then dry with fizzy carbonation and an ever so slightly alcoholic finish.

Amber pour with a moderate thick white head. Hoppy, citrusy, and spicy aroma. Nice and smooth, dry, bitter and a nice smooth finish. Excellent brew.

jgb9348 (5717) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Rich, dense copper coloured body with a super hazy orange glow and a thin tan head. Aroma of bright, strong, high alpha acid hops, a touch of citrus and a lot of pine - nice and cloying! Medium-bodied; Strong, super assertive and bittering hops that hit like metal and resin. Very nice and pungent bitterness at the finish with a touch of light herbal sweetness, but a lot of hops, a good balance of malt and way more hops - nice. Overall, a super potent and very hoppy finish with a good malt balance, slight amount of sweetness, but this one really is all about the hops. Probably as hoppy as you can get for a beer with this gravity - but it’s well enjoyed by me! I’d recommend this for people who REALLY like hops, but don’t necessarily like Imperial IPAs (like me). This one is lighter in alcohol than those, but still high. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Ye Olde Spirit Shop in Frederick, Maryland on 29-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 11-September-2010 (9 year anniversary).

A nice amber body with a thin white head that had good retention and good lace. Aroma had nice caramel malts and hops were a mix of mild grapefruit and a nice assertive pine note, Flavor had great balance between the sweetness of the malts and a great hop bite that balanced it out perfectly. There was some warmth from the alcohol. A nice smooth finish.

On tap at Lure’s. Pours hazy orangish amber with off-white head. Aromas of citrusy hops, caramel malt, and a wee of pine. Flavor is a ton of bitter hops with good amount of citrus and nice malt backbone. The bitterness lived up to the reported IBU in my opinion. Nice to have a fresh IPA on tap.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Bomber. Pours a hazy dark copper with small but persistent offwhite head. The aroma is lovely, subtle fruity hops with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, date, cotton candy, and a bit of toasty malt. The flavor is surprising with the assertive bitterness... off to a good start. There is a fruity melon, strawberry, and tangerine mix in there with a toasty backbone. Toward the finish is takes on more of a date and fig sweetness behind piney bitterness that lingers for quite a while. Pretty good stuff.
