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.

12 oz bottle, with May notched out on the bottle label.

appears hazy rusty orange color, with off-white head that fades. smells a bit of earthy hops, just okay. tastes slightly sweet, malty. hops build, finishes slightly bitter. medium body, higher carbonation. maybe it was better when fresh, but just "meh" right now.

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.
