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.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is rich resin hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a huge resin floral hop palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. I think they threw the hop bucket into this one, but unfortunately it contained all the wrong hops :-(

Bottle. Medium gold color with a medium head. Aroma is a weak grapefruit. Taste is also a weak grapefruit. Not one of the better IPAs.

rumproasts (2549) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 18, 2014
bottle. Deep golden with small head. Mild malt base and moderate hops. Hops seem dull. It was cheap, and tastes cheap as well.

berkshirejohn (4198) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
355ml bottle from Tesco’s, Camberley. Golden amber with a loose white head anf light carbonation; citrusy aroma; soft toffee taste with some sweet grapefruit to follow; and a caramel biscuity finish with some zingy spice. I’ve tried quite a few east coast IPA’s in the past few weeks, and this one is definitely better than average.

rauchbier (3559) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle, from Tesco Cleethorpes. Bright amber gold, tight fluffy and long lasting white head and good condition. Muted biscuit malt and caramel with a gentle citrus hop resin note in the nose, a little one dimensional in the mouth with a brief maltiness quickly dominated by a spicy hoppiness that becomes quite harshly bitter, finish is all hop bitterness with a dry chalkiness lingering

RSRIZZO (1847) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 18, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 39°. Color is a deep golden with light carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is a sweet fruity hop scent. It has a light and crisp medium body. Flavor comes in with malt giving it mild caramel notes and a bit of fruit, this is back with spicy hops and white pepper. After taste is clean and dry with just a touch of the fruit still showing in the back. Overall its a very mellow and easy drinking IPA, just not a stand out that you’ll remember.
