COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Once brewed by Greg Smith, “44 Magnum” is a double IPA teetering over 100 IBUS and literally packed full of hops. Copper in color, a combination of Columbus, Chinook, and Cascade hops hit the nose and the tongue. Over 21 pounds of hops were used in one batch! 8% ABV

Rohrbach 44 Magnum is a slightly hazy golden ale with a huge, even, foamy off-white head. The retention and lacing is superb. It smells citrusy and grassy. There are notes of hay and maybe berries. It’s medium-full bodied, slick and smooth. The finish is syrupy and sticky. It’s quite bitter and the hops dominate. There are notes of citrus, wood resin, juniper, citrus peel and black pepper. It’s slightly sweet. This is a total stunt beer and I love it. [Sampled at the 2009 Flower City Brewers’ Fest at Frontier Field, Rochester, NY]

Growler gifted to me by the HR Manager. Nice crisp, fresh West Coast style IPA. Big floral nose, grapefruit finish, copper color, enough carbonation. Nice, locally brewed East Coast take on a West Coast style.

Just got back from Rohrbachs were I had the sampler tray plus acouple more. I’m suprised they poured this as one of my sampler selections. Hoppy aroma with citrus. Some hops upfront but followed with a nice big citrus after taste. I liked it.

On cask at Mr. Goodbar a few weeks ago. Poured unclear golden orange with a white head. Nice hoppy aroma with floral hints and a touch of citrus. The flavor is balanced with floral hops, some bready/grainy malts and a lingering bitter finish. Nice.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2009 On tap. Poured into a special glass that looks like a wine glass, same style they pour their Belgians into. This one is not available for growler fills. Very nice autumn color, orangy brown. Very malty nose, biscuity + some caramel. Had that flavor many of the Rohrbach brews had, grainy, malty. Was tasty and good for sipping. Will try to find out more about this stuff.
