COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just can’t get enough of those hops. IPA’s 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 bottle from the new store. Big nose on it, lots of pine up front. Kinda loses the pine and fades to a bit of honey sweetness as it warms. Easy drinking flavor for a double IPA. Perhaps not as hoppy as it could be, but I liked it....very easy drinking for the style on a very hot summer night.

bottle-dark copper hue with a small fizzy slightly off-white head. nose of musty hops-leafy and somewhat resinous. smells like a barleywine more than most ipas. resounus hops dominate the flavors not very well put together beer here. very unbalanced and harsh. fussel alcohol as well. needs alot of work.

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.

pours a clear orange color with little head. lot’s of citrus hops in the nose. taste is hop punch of citrus flavors and bitter. almost a bit spicy even. not a bad double IPA but certainly not the best.

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 I’ve 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 didn’t really even want to finish it.

Capa (2627) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2011
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 wouldn’t 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.
