3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from the brewery in Morrisville. Pours deep amber with a 1 finger off white head, Gobs of sticky lace. Strong pine resin aroma. Little bit of malt sweetness on the aroma too. As would be expected, taste is dominated by pine hops with secondary citrus hops. Not as powerful as some making it deceptively easy drinking. Moderate to full palate with a long lingering bitter finish.

22oz bottle. Rating #84. Dark copper pour with a nice big off-white head with real nice retention and a pretty quick receding lace. Wow, real nice pineapple aroma, sweet and really enticing. Nice hop bite, more fruity sweetness balanced by the pineapple, pretty nice DIPA. (1601)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Phoenix) - Pours a slightly hazy deep amber color with a very light tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is lightly toasted malt, floral hops, and esters. Flavor is primarily toasted malt with some hops in the background. Medium body. Maybe I got an older bottle, but this is a pretty weak 2IPA. Still, a decent beer overall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bomber from EZ. Poured a cler deep dark reddish/amber, far darker-redder then I have ever seen on a DIPA, with a large foamy off white head that had some serious lasting power. Aroma started off with a strong grapefruit citrus blast that mellowed to reveal orange slices, dry crusty bread and some caramel along with a touch of fruitiness. The taste has some grapefuit notes but they aren’t quite as strong as some other DIPAs as the malts have a very strong prescence giving some grainy bread, caramel and even toffee. The body is medium with strong carbonation and a fizzy full finish along with a lingering bitterness. Solid DIPA in general but definitely a suprise for Rock Art and one of their best beers that I have ever had.
