COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named in honor of and personally dry-hopped by our resident beer connoisseur, this super hoppy American-style India Pale Ale is brewed with loads of Pacific Northeast hops producing flavors and aromas of mango, orange and grapefruit! Hopheads only please.

(06.08.06) On tap at Rockbottom Chicago, Chicago, IL. Poured hazy orange with medium white head. No discernable carbonation. Grapefruit aroma. Light to medium bodied ale that starts with light malt sweetness and intense hoppy grapefruit flavor. Finished with light lingering hop bitterness. More hop flavor than hop bitterness, this is a very good drinkable hoppy beer.

Glowing orange color w/ a frothy white well laced head. Well hopped aroma of mango, & grapefruit, simcoe.. mmmm.. with hints of dry grass as well and a nice carmel backbone. Palate is well coated and nicely oily. Flavor was very good. Light sweet fruits, mango, grapefruit, passion fruit, good carmels and toucehs of light pine. MMM...

Hazy golden orange with a persistent, soapy white head. As an IPA, obviously the nose is hoppy, but holy hell, this nose is freakiní hoppy! The description really says it: mango, orange and grapefruit as well as pine, apricot, some mild sweetness, a touch of grain and just a hint of warm alcohol. The body is somewhat full with soft carbonation and crazy alpha acid bitterness. There is some sweetness up front that slowly transitions into a fruity sweetness and that suddenly dries out, gets bitter as hell and finishes with a bracingly bitter kick. This is the crispest hop-dominated nose Iíve smelled in some time. Itís fresh citrus fruit dripping with pine sap. And despite the huge hop elements, it is imminently drinkable. Well done Drogo and the Rock Bottom crew. In my mind, one the best in a while from RB.
