I had this in the brewpub restaurant in Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport (MSP). Might be the wrong one, but couldn’t find anything else. Pours amber with a white head. Medium hopped, with aroma of mild pine. Decent.

Blom (831) - 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.

[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 (6285) - 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.

rondphoto (1820) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - APR 17, 2014
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 (997) - 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

ajnepple (1998) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 12, 2014
On tap at Rock Bottom Denver. Golden amber and clear appearance with a sticky white head. Aroma of citrus fruit, pine, bread, floral notes and bitter hops. Similar flavor, medium hop bitterness balanced by lightly sweet malts over an average body.

Headbanger (3246) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Draft Brewery 9/16/00 (GABF)-Pours a slightly hazy yellowish with a small head. Aroma of citrus. Taste of citrus, hops, and malt. This medium bodied brew was a great tasting brew. Quite surprising.
