3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Rock Bottom Richmond Short Pump. Pours a clear medium amber, slight head. Aroma is caramel malts and citric and pine hops. Flavor matches. Frankly quite a bit like the amber, only marginally more hoppy. Needed more character from the hops in my opinion. Again, well executed, no brewing faults at all, this is a recipe complaint.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Rock Bottom Restaurant and Brewery. Orange IPA with a low head. The first wave of bitterness quickly vanishes and the base is too weak. Thin texture for an American IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap @ Rock Bottom / Cincinnati --- Nearly clear medium orange amber, long-lasting head cover, streaks of lace. Taste is sweet malt that waits until the finish to usher in medium citrus hops. This is hardly an IPA, as the sweet is strong enough to reappear in the vapors at the back end. As an Ale, quite enjoyable.

Rock bottom is a decent microbrew in Chicago. Nicely hoppy and bitter but doesn't stand out. Pours an orange in color. Had at the brewery
