COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just canít get enough of those hops. IPAís seem to be a great choice any time of the year. They have a great malt flavor and hop profile, just what a beer connoisseur is looking for. We decided to give this one a bit more hops. Try this with a strong cheese like a very sharp cheddar, cloth bound, aged if you can find one.

22 oz bomber shared with Scott. Pours a deep orange honey with a medium sized off white-light beige head. Aroma of sweet tangy malts, toffee, floral notes and hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Has a buttery eel to it.

Bomber in Johnson, VT. Very nice. Murky orange pour, small white head (disappears fast). Bitter grassy aroma and the flavor is much the same, lots of grassy hops, a very dry, astringent, very bitter finish.

Pours a slightly hazed deep amber into a tulip. Off-white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sweet caramel and resin aromas. Sweet caramel and nutty bread from front to back with a sweet, lasting resin finish.

The best rating I can give this beer is below average. I am not a fan of Rock Art. In fact I have never had a beer from them that Iíve really enjoyed, but yet I still gave it a try. An not suprisingly, it was bad. A bitter, unbalanced IPA. Hop taste was so far off that I didnít really even want to finish it.

Hazy caramel with a white head. Sweet malts, molasses, piney and citrus hops in the aroma. Big, chewy caramel malts, pine, citrus, toasted malt, bread, too. It is a big beer, no doubt. But, it is not one of those un-approachable beers, either. While I wouldnít say it stands out from the world of good DIPAs, it is one of the good ones.

Got this is a trade, thanks trading world for spreading the love. Poured a deep amber, chunky head. Smell was a sweet toffee malt, with a little hop bitterness on the end. Taste was that east coast IPA, mostly sweet malty tones, but then evens out in the middle and you get some piney hops. This is very drinkable for 8%. Not to generalize, but I just tend to like the west coast IPA, fruity and piney, unlike the east coast IPA, malt dominated.

Big piney sweet presence here with some brown sugar tobacco earthyness in the smell as well. Flavor is toffee sweetness to start and an alcoholic aspirin bitterness to finish. Very uneven and clumsy in the way that there is no transition there. Great sticky, hefty mouthfeel for the style that just builds thirst as you go. Good Dipa, great value (5 bucks for 22 sticky ounces). Thank You Rock Art. 2010 22oz.

(sample at kick-off). Pours copper color with off-white head. Aroma of hop funk, pine and citrus. Taste is sweet and bitter. Medium body with oily texture. Bitter finish. Pretyy nice beer.
