This classic, golden hued ale is brewed with the finest hand selected hops from the Pacific Northwest for an assertive, citrus hop flavor.

Ferris (4342) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft - Grapefruit, pine and some malt. Hazy gold with a decent beige head. Light grapefruit and pine with a residual bitterness. Light and drinkable, although a bit plain.

Kinz (3299) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2014
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.

Emeister84 (994) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2014
Aromas of piney, resinous hops, apricot. Clear orange, lasting white head. Dry, well balanced, fruity. Light-medium bodied, abrupt, yeasty finish.

Blom (836) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2014
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.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2014
[Tap] Light copper pour with a small amount of head on it. Floral and piney hops in the aroma. Moderate bitterness in the flavor. Orange, grapefruit and lighter pine notes in the taste. Caramel and toasted bread backbone. Dry and bitter finish. Good.

phaleslu (6555) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2014
Draft at Rock Bottom-Cincinnati. Pours a cloudy gold color that leaves a sheet of eggshell white head. Notes of mixed citrus fruits, pineapple, pale and biscuity malts, straw, and grass. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Decent IPA.

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.

Christpuncher (1188) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2014
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
