Harkening back to old world brewing styles, Roscoe’s Hop House uses the highest quality malts and hops to bring forth this smooth, bright flavored India Pale Ale. With a nod to the past, this nicely balanced, true ale is brewed using traditional brewing methods for a unique flavor profile. The password to our best kept secret is found inside the bottle.

Bottle shared at chriso’s post GBBF minidig 16/08/2014 . Aroma is medicinal berry hop with a touch of resin, and alcohol. Clear golden / orange coloured pour with a loose white head . flavour is composed of nutty, slightly stale malts, chive hop, metal finish. A bit of hop berry flavour as well. Palate is medium carbonation and medium sweet. Pretty bad.

The worst IPA I have ever tasted. Bought on a whim and it’s a good thing I only.bought one bottle and not two! Really undrinkable - avoid!!

Bottle shared at chriso’s Post-GBBF 2014 Tasting - London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a frothy white head. The nose has light paper notes, caramel, bread, melon. Medium sweet flavor with more mellow caramel, melon, citrus candies. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with simplistic bready malts, caramel and mild leafy bitterness. A lowest common denominator IPA.

Golden colour. Off white head. Tightly filtered with an acidic spritz mouthfeel. Long unpleasant spirity quality throughout. No joy

chinchill (2647) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2014
12 oz bottle. Deep amber with a very good head and exceptional lacing. High malt/hop ratio for style; drinks like a malty pale ale. Herbal and citrus notes. O: Decent, just don’t expect a hoppy IPA.

Bright clear gold - amber beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light and crisp. Mild minerals. Airy malts, little creamy sweetness. Hops are pretty light - mild citrus, touch of marmalade. Light semi dry finish brings a little dry floralness. Fine.

SlackerMads (1938) - DENMARK - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Labels doesn’t say anything about being original, so I guess I got the unoriginal version. Pours clear orange/hazelnut brown with a medium sized diminishing good lacing off white head. Pine, cheese, caramel in the nose. Flavour has cheesy hops, caramel, bread and some plastic notes to it. Has a good balanced bitterness and a good mouthfeel, so that part works, but the flavour isn’t exactly bursting with fresh hops.
