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!

Pale gold in color. This beer had a small white head that vanished rather quickly. A very light hop smell was present. The taste was rather weak in the area of hops and the aftertaste was slightly roasted. Rather lame rendition of the style.

Beerdedone (2584) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 27, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours dark amber with an off white head. Aroma of hops, citrus, and sweet malt. Flavor is bitter, citrus, and caramel.

raymow (798) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Smells very hoppy but I’ve tasted many beers hoppier than this. Overall though, not a bad IPA. Nice amber color to it. Also, it has a bit of an alcohol kick at the end of each mouthful, which is odd for a 5%er.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Pours copper with a thin hite head. You can smell a faint hint of citrus and grass and taste the traces of hops, but this one is watery and bland.

Sammy (8406) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2005
small but nice head. Cascade, bitter, malt spiceyness. Piney,Minty, like spearmint. Good with food. Medium mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Change of pace unique IPA.

DocLock (7731) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2005
Pours hazt dark straw with a lot of carbonation and tiny floaties. Aroma of resiny hops, bready malt, and some cobwebby esters. The taste was hoppy, with some citrus and bready malt. Medium palate that gets hoppier as it warms. Lacking in balance and complexity.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2005
I don’t know what to make of this beer. The ingredients seem to clash and balance doesn’t seem to form in the taste or the aroma. The bitterness I normally associate with an IPA is contradicted by a relatively harmless palatte which only seeps out some grassy hops in a sea of water. There is some carbonation present so the mouthfeel is a plus but taste loses and smoothness wins.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2005
After the BW I think I was expecting a little much from this. Thin, low carbonation, resiny and lemony hops, little malt backing, no complexity, just a mess and hard to finish.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2005
Pale yelow clear body with thin dissipating head. Strong aroma of floral hops and dish soap with light lemon. Thin flavor of lemon and marigold. Thin watery palate. Nearly skunk finish.

Appears a light gold with a small white cap and little lacing. Smell is florally and soapy with light malt in the background. Taste is light and soapy with nothing fantastic jumping out. Mouthfeel is light, fizzy, and weak. Drinkability...nothing special going on this this one.
