Notes/Commercial Description:
A light copper body low bitterness with good hop flavor. This is my impression of what the English troops may have been drinking when they occupied India. The pale ale they drank had mellowed considerably. The wooden casks had spent many months traveling on ships and long inland journeys to the troops, where they were then tapped and enjoyed.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 29, 2013.

It has a medium amber-copper pour with a haze and a big lingering off-white head.

The aroma is earthy and floral with hops along with biscuit malts and a little sweetness. It smells fresh and clean.

The body is medium with a little acidity.

The taste has a nice dose of floral and earthy hops like the nose but they balance appropriately with the pale malts and sweetness. This is an English IPA so it is not meant to be hopped up. So in this regard Rock Art put together a fine and drinkable IPA.

Pours a slightly chill hazed medium peach color with a decent sized white head that recedes slowly leaving lots of sticky lace in its wake. Smells of light bready and toffee malt sweetness with grapefruit and lemons hop aromas. The flavor is bready malt with a solid shot of old school ipa citrus. Lots of citric hop bitterness and flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a slick almost tart mouthfeel. Nice citrus forward IPA that reminds me a lot of Harpoon. I could drink this regularly

12 oz bottle into a stemless wine glass. Served liquor store refrigerator temperature.

A- cloudy orange, a little off putting. Big natural foamy bubbles, turn in to nice lacings. + for the head, - for the color.
S - clean hoppy aroma hits you right away
T - hoppy bitterness is nice without being overpowering. Hint of clove.
M - a little on the thin side
O - decent drinkable IPA, + for Vermont
