As said on the label: This ain’t for no mamma’s boys or daddy’s girl. This beer is truly extreme, the bitterness is something I have rarely experienced really before I got to this beer. Not only the bitterness is amazing, but the hops tastes and aromas are in my mouth and take their place a LOT. For any lover of true beer and true hop taste. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2013
I like this one a lot. Very full bodied. Delightful twinge of sweetness. Solid A-

Bomber pours clear copper with full tan head. The aroma has some sweet citrus hop notes and some melon mixing with mild Belgian yeasty spices as well as pear and apple like esters. At times I seem to get some pine hops too. The taste is nice and chewy grapefruit hops, malt sweetened tangelo and then rolling toward increasing levels of bitterness. I only get the faintest spicy Belgian yeast notes before robust levels of bitter resiny pine hops take over. Tasty stuff with a pleasing balance between flavor hops and bitter hops and only light amounts of a Belgian yeast influence. I like it like that. ausomeawestin (151) - Maryland, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Strong aroma of citrus and pine hop scents and grass odors.
Tastes follows suite with hop notes of grapefruit, orange rinds and pine. Not much malt flavor. A strong bitter flavor which doesn’t quite follow into the aftertaste.
Palate is relatively thin, but doesn’t take away from the ale. Alcohol is noticeable on the palate, but not when not held.
Overall, a very hoppy beer with little to no malt flavor and a strong bitterness. dlovell2 (2139) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Cloudy copper color with white head. Sweet citrus pineapple aroma with some pine. Sweet malt start with citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Some grassy notes. Finish is grapefruit and resiny pine. Really nice brew.

A big hoppy beer with an actually smooth finish. No one strong characteristic sticks out like a sore thumb (including alcohol) which is really quite easy to do with an IPA. Well blended. I think this is Rock Art’s best beer. Top notch. A great beer and a great value at $5 a bomber. Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Nice amber color with a big hoppy aroma. Big off white head with considerable lacing. Flavor is very big hops, slightly floral and a little dry at the end. Alcohol is well hidden.

A nice little BIG IPA. Hops are defined with a luscious malt backbone that brings a sense of creaminess to the palate. Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - NOV 19, 2010
Got this is a trade, thanks trading world for spreading the love. Poured a deep amber, chunky head. Smell was a sweet toffee malt, with a little hop bitterness on the end. Taste was that east coast IPA, mostly sweet malty tones, but then evens out in the middle and you get some piney hops. This is very drinkable for 8%. Not to generalize, but I just tend to like the west coast IPA, fruity and piney, unlike the east coast IPA, malt dominated. mdb1 (4) - Pawlet, Vermont, USA - AUG 7, 2013 does not count
Very smooth for a dipa, nice aroma and the simcoe hops give it a refreshing taste with a slightly dry bitterness at the end. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys a fine "Vermont" made double IPA.
