Medium: 12oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass
Price: $14.00 for a 12-pack Rock Art sampler
Aroma: Contains a strong floral aroma similar to freshly cut flowers along with grassy/ piney notes. There are also some fruity citrus characters in the presence of a sweet caramel & toasty aroma.
Appearance: Poured for a great looking tan/ light brown head about one finger high with good retention. Just a bit hazy with tiny particles floating throughout the glass - yeast sediment in the bottle as well. Presents a nice glowing copper to golden amber in color. Carbonation looks strong.
Flavor: This is a well balanced beer with a distinctive sweet malty presence upfront and a mild spicy bitterness that lingers in the aftertaste. While sipping, it offers a floral taste along with some fruity citrus qualities. Toasty and caramel notes throughout.
Mouthfeel: A moderately high carbonated beverage with a smooth, medium body. Also a slight warming sensation and some drying in the aftertaste (in the presence of sweet toffee-like characteristics). No Astringency.
Overall Impression: This IPA is well balanced and certainly very drinkable. Although it is a little darker than expected, it still presents itself nicely. I would recommend this IPA over many others - it is neither too bitter nor dry.
