Good head retention and lacing. Nice aroma, piny with a strong citrus overtone. Excellent well balanced beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber color with a medoium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, toast, floral hops, citrus fruits. Taste of much of the same, with a grapefruit finish.

Pours a cloudy golden color with a white soapy head. Aroma of citrus, hops, and some pine. Bitter hop flavor balanced by citrus and caramel malts. Very nice beer. One of the best at this location.

Pours out a moderately cloudy golden color with a two finger off white head. Nice aroma of citrus and pine hops and some sweet malty notes also. Taste is complex with nice typical simcoe hop flavors, citrus, some pine and some fruity and grainy malt notes in there also, bitter hoppy finish. Solid, drinkable IPA that is very drinkable.

Grainy yellow gold with pillowy white head. Smells of citrus hops, very skunky but enjoyable. Alcohol content is very well hidden. It’s a very good IPA, bordering on IIPA. Would definitely have again. I thought this was 7.5% ABV, but oh well.

Golden color with a medium head. Big hoppy aroma that screams "Simcoe" with a bit of malt in the background. Flavor is all floral and citrusy simcoe with just enough malt sweetness. Pretty damn good for RPKoP.

JFGrind (2057) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2009
Sampled from a growler thanks to homebrew club buddy....DAMN! I could not believe the aroma on this IPA, full assault of citrus/pine hops on the nose. Beer is medium bodied hazy yellow with foamy head. Malt presence blends this beer well and surprisingly only medium bitterness. Sub Zero has kindled my interest in Rock Bottom K.O.P.

illinismitty (2271) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Draft at brewpup. Pours amber orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus/ floral hops. Medium bodied with an oily texture. The toffee esque pale malts are overpowered by a dry grapefruity bitterness. Long dry bitter finish with an emphasis on the bitter rind aspect of the grapefruity hops, and a small distracting amount of butter notes. Well done, but perhaps a tad too dry for my personal tastes. But good enough to repeat on my visit.

On tap at the Brewpub: Hoppy aroma of pine, grapefruit, and Simcoe. Poured amber in color with a small white head. Good lacing. Lightly sparkling. Clear. Medium bitter, medium sweet flavor. Tasted of hops, grapefruit, pine, resin, and caramel malts. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy finish is not overly bitter.

Growlerfrom hopdog. Slightly catty aroma. Not distracting though. Heavy on the citrus zest and oily pine resin. Pours mostly clear bright gold. Dry on the palate. Firm texture. Fairly bitter. Pine tree bark. Bitter orange zest. A nice pale for sure.
