Our American pale ale is aggressively hopped with Challenger and Cascade and has a sweet caramel finish. The flavor that launched RJ Rockers – and brewer Mark Johnsen’s personal fave.

06/27/13 On tap at Rattle N Hum, NYC. Best feature here is the lacing which I hear is an indicator of a well made brew. For what it's worth this axiom holds true here. The body/mouth feel is excellent. The bitter notes are there, but not too rambunctious, so I think we'll get along just fine. I'm finding these Rocker guys are full of pleasant surprises.

Poured into a standard pint glass: color is amber and opaque, somewhat dense looking; head is off white and presents at 1 inch thick then dissipates to a solid top about 1/4 inch thick;

Aroma is pleasant, solid malt profile, with light caramel, hops are grassy and earthy; subtle sour off note is present.

Taste is a pleasant and malt forward, caramel is complimenting to the pale malts; hops are a touch fruity and the fermentation leaves a fruitier note.

Mouthfeel is a bit dry and biting on the tongue.

Overall, a solid pale ale with some possible fermentation issues, as all of the rockers beers had in this mix case.

I am not sure what is going on with this beer. I have had it twice, and though it is not horrible, the carbonation in it usually makes it over flow right out of the bottle.

It has a dark amber color and gives off a large amount of head that doesn't last long. Very dull piney taste and very little citrus as well. I can't really distinguish the caramel/malt taste. This one does not do it for me. I would like to see them drive home the malt taste a little better.
