Pretty good. Just too one dimensional and weak after taste. A little watered down. It could use more malty taste.!

[5267-20130426] Tap. Fruity raspberry wheat soap aroma. Clear, orange red body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Bitter raspberry grains flavour has a fruit hops bite aftertaste. Medium body. Hard to stand up next to Hill Farmstead but I would be fine with drinking it if it came to Ontario. (6/4/7/3/14) 3.4

Bottle from Rock Art taproom, 08/05/2013. Pours amber, golden highlights with frothy white head which fades to a silky haze on the surface, decent lacing. Aroma is tangerine, bubble gum, floral hops, dark caramel malts with grassy finish. Taste is again citrus, spritzy grapefruit, toasted caramel and mild pine bitterness in the finish. Medium light body, very drinkable, ver balanced. Really pleasant, hits all the right notes for me.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber color with a thin white head. Nice aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is citrus, lemon, grapefruit, and pine.

On tap @ The Reservoir (Waterbury). Golden/orange with a medium white head and intense lacing. Aroma is mainly of citrus, but there’s also some caramel and light floral notes. Taste is slightly to moderately sweet with citrus, slight caramel, light floral notes and light to moderate bitterness. Medium body. Thirst quenching and quite interesting, especially for a Rock Art beer. I would drink more of this.

PhillyCraft (3185) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Hazy copper pour with light head, alright lacing. Notes of weird hops, candy cigarette, not the bubble gum one that blows fake smoke but rather the hard white ones that look like pinner joints. Smaller notes of perfume, spruce or some other strong spice. Medium body. Not a fan. 3.1

Lord have mercy! This is a world class IPA if ever there was one. I bought a pint for my friend and one for myself. When I was half way through my second pint I threatened to drink the rest of his if he allowed it to get unnaturally warm. It must be respected as an unearthly brew of excellence. Why do they not brew this more. Rock art is all out !!! WHY... I love it too much

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2013
2013-04-26. Crisp orange body, small off white head. Modest hoppy aroma, orange, light alcohol. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy. Orange citrus and mild rainy hops, pleasant moderate bitterness throughout. Average palate and carbonation suits it. Enjoyable but pales in comparison to more assertively hoppy fare we have had today. On tap at Prohibition Pig, Waterbury
