Surprisingly crisp. L- slightly cloudy, about 3/4inch heavy/ dense head. S- vaguely hoppy, very mild. T - piney/ citrus but subtle, barely busy. Possibly a smokey yeast, can't pin-point it. Great for the ABV. F - mostly smooth upon entering, but somewhat cloying on the way past the palate. I would definitely recommend if at a Rock Bottom, it will not disappoint.

I like their staple IPA, it is a good product, however I do find it to be very much the same old same old. What kills me with Rock Bottom and most breweries is that they spend most of their time focusing on the IPA style. Don't get me wrong, I love an IPA like anyone else, but too many IPA's can be boring! This is why I find their IPA good, but maybe because IPA's are being overkilled it would have rated higher.

I had this on-tap in a big mug at the Rock Bottom in downtown Seattle.

Appearance: medium orange with a good haze and a thick finger of ivory foam leaving a nice lace on the glass. Quite good.

Smell: earthy hops with a dash of citrus and a bit of caramel maltiness. Not too bad.

Taste: like the aroma, a little citrusy and a little earthy with a bit of a toasted malt character underneath. Nothing earth shattering here, but well made.

Mouthfeel: medium body and a decent carbonation yielding a pretty good creaminess for the style.

Overall: a tasty and drinkable IPA. This could be a go-to for me here.
