COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this one because we just cant get enough of those hops. IPAs seem to be a great choice any time of the year. They have a great malt flavor and hop profile, just what a beer connoisseur is looking for. We decided to give this one a bit more hops. Try this with a strong cheese like a very sharp cheddar, cloth bound, aged if you can find one.

Bomber shared by marcdesthya.
Appearance : Deep amber with small head. Not much lacing.
Aroma : Crisp herbal hops with floral notes. Citrusy also. Light caramel notes.
Taste : Caramel and crisp floral hops. Finish is quite bitter and very dry. A bit astringent.
Overall : Nice hops nose with interesting malt profile. Finish is a bit too astringent and bitter without enough malt to back it.

22 oz bottle from the new store. Big nose on it, lots of pine up front. Kinda loses the pine and fades to a bit of honey sweetness as it warms. Easy drinking flavor for a double IPA. Perhaps not as hoppy as it could be, but I liked it....very easy drinking for the style on a very hot summer night.

Terminus (3669) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2011
bottle-dark copper hue with a small fizzy slightly off-white head. nose of musty hops-leafy and somewhat resinous. smells like a barleywine more than most ipas. resounus hops dominate the flavors not very well put together beer here. very unbalanced and harsh. fussel alcohol as well. needs alot of work.

22 oz bomber shared with Scott. Pours a deep orange honey with a medium sized off white-light beige head. Aroma of sweet tangy malts, toffee, floral notes and hops. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Has a buttery eel to it.

someviking (132) - old bridge, New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2011
pours a clear orange color with little head. lots of citrus hops in the nose. taste is hop punch of citrus flavors and bitter. almost a bit spicy even. not a bad double IPA but certainly not the best.

GJF (1520) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bomber in Johnson, VT. Very nice. Murky orange pour, small white head (disappears fast). Bitter grassy aroma and the flavor is much the same, lots of grassy hops, a very dry, astringent, very bitter finish.

Pours a slightly hazed deep amber into a tulip. Off-white head quickly recedes to hug rim. Sweet caramel and resin aromas. Sweet caramel and nutty bread from front to back with a sweet, lasting resin finish.

The best rating I can give this beer is below average. I am not a fan of Rock Art. In fact I have never had a beer from them that Ive really enjoyed, but yet I still gave it a try. An not suprisingly, it was bad. A bitter, unbalanced IPA. Hop taste was so far off that I didnt really even want to finish it.

Hazy caramel with a white head. Sweet malts, molasses, piney and citrus hops in the aroma. Big, chewy caramel malts, pine, citrus, toasted malt, bread, too. It is a big beer, no doubt. But, it is not one of those un-approachable beers, either. While I wouldnt say it stands out from the world of good DIPAs, it is one of the good ones.
