COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Ah taste and smell the hops!" A hoppy ale that is mildly bitter. Brewed with the finest pale malt available and a touch of flaked barley. Cascade hops are used to make a hop tea that is added directly to the brite tank for a Rock Art twist on an age old favorite. (SUMMER SEASONAL) Now available in 22 oz. bottles!

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light citrusy hops and some pale and caramel malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. Just an average IPA.

pushkinwow (2227) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2012
On tap at the 20th Vermont Brewers Festival. Hazy amber with an off white head. Citrus hoppiness and grains with a bit of malt; moderate carbonation and mild flavour. Nothing too exciting but its a refreshing beer on a summer day.

Beerathon (1537) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2012
I love RateBeer, been using it a ton since the turn of the calendar to 2012. However, sometimes I just shake my head when I see a beer’s rating on here. This one for instance is rating very low. I thought it was a solid IPA. Orange color, sticky white head. Citrus, floral, piney aroma. Taste a bit watery, like it to be heavier in the mouth, but still good.

puboflyons (2483) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 29, 2013
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium to dark amber with a slight cloudiness and maybe a few sedimentary floaties. Moderate off-white foamy head. There is a nice floral hoppy aroma on the nose with pale malts and biscuit playing up on the back. Smells clean. The body is in the light to medium range. The taste has a vibrant bitterness that does not explode in my mouth but gives me a nice sensation that I had something of substance. Good summer brew.

johnnnniee (2831) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a slightly chill hazed medium peach color with a decent sized white head that recedes slowly leaving lots of sticky lace in its wake. Smells of light bready and toffee malt sweetness with grapefruit and lemons hop aromas. The flavor is bready malt with a solid shot of old school ipa citrus. Lots of citric hop bitterness and flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick almost tart mouthfeel. Nice citrus forward IPA that reminds me a lot of Harpoon. I could drink this regularly

Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Soapy pine aroma, like doing the wash with beers. Average orange, surprise two finger head. Mildly bitter, starchy sweetness. Needs a heavier body. Passes muster for an IPA ten years ago, less so now.

Bulk_Carrier (2676) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JAN 23, 2013
It poured a brownish gold and maintained a good haziness in the body. There was a lot of carbonation and it took a good three minutes before the head dissipated. Bubbles formed around the head on the sides before the head dissipated. Once it settled a small mushroom cap of a head centered in the beer. The smell was the pine and the hops with some spices in the background. The taste was the hops with the spices in the background. Some bready malts came out in the taste along with a slightly sweet aftertaste. The palate was a light to medium and mainly drinkable, decently balanced. Overall, pretty good for the style, I’d have it again.

Nephilium (1486) - Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Nice clean grassy hop aroma, with a hint of caramel. Pours a cloudy amber with a white head, with visible sediment floating in it. A quick pop of hops, that quickly fade, with a bit too much carbonation. Not a terrible IPA, just not that good of one.

12oz bottle-tight offwhite-hazy gold. A-citrus/pine (soapy), 2nd lt/med malt. T-pine hops with a weird bite, 2nd lt/med malt-caramel.
