3.92/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

16oz can. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a thin layer of head. Aromas of peach, grapefruit, pine and some herbal hops. The taste is peach and grapefruit followed up by the herbal hops. Pine and bready malts at the end with an herbal finish. Medium bodied and an oily mouthfeel. Overall, a pretty solid IPA I'd buy again.

Pored into pint glass from 16 oz can. Really good golden, light brown color. Couldn't get much of a smell at all from it. Very subtle hops but pleasant. Certainly not a beer that hop heads will go crazy for but if your looking for a very drinkable IPA this would be it. Another good offering from Rock Art, good switch up from their stronger doubles.

4.22/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass canned on 8/23/16. Pours a very attractive slightly hazy orange with a 2 finger sticky white head that leaves rings of lace behind.

Smell is guava, apricot, pine, earthy peppery hops, and grapefruit.

Taste follows nicely tropical hops upfront, with that peppery hop flavor behind that, and finishes with piney grapefruit and leaves its mark as it coats the tongue.

Mouthfeel is a little bigger than medium, a good amount of life, maybe a little dry, and excellent drinkability, but it feels bigger than the 6% ABV.

Overall this is a very nice fresh hop IPA, very impressed.

From the can, it pours a reasonably clear amber with a nice just off-white head. The head stays awhile. Some citrus in the nose and mouth. I had this a bit warm for the style and it was still AMAZING! Yum!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Hazy golden in color with a one finger head and nice lacing. Crisp citrus hop aroma. Light and crisp mouthfeel. Fresh taste with a light grapefruit that increases in strength to the finish. Nice hoppy citrus aftertaste that lingers a while. This is a very good mild tasting IPA.

3.99/5  rDev -2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

From the can dated 08/23/2016. sampled on September 4, 2016.

It pours a mostly orange looking medium amber under a fluffy off-white head. Good clarity.

The aroma has a little bit of mango and tangerine right of with a white bread malt character underneath.

Medium and smooth body.

The taste has a similar mango fruitiness with lightly toasted bread and a mild to moderate bitter finale.

4.01/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours a nice slightly hazy golden orange color. Good head retention.
Aroma is candied orange, flowers and a hint of pine with a bit of malt sweetness.
Flavor is more of the same, very well balanced but reasonably complex. No aspect really overpowers between the floral, grapefruity citrus and pine notes. Not much malt, which is par for the course in VT.
Easy drinking, 6% feels right for this beer.
Solid beer, not going to knock your socks off but well executed and enjoyable. Whole is better than the sum of its parts.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Pours a slightly cloudy blonde with amber hue and a thin head into my glass.

A nice touch of grapefruit and mango in the nose.

Lots of flavor. Mixed grapefruit/pine bitterness upfront followed by an acidic finish at the back.

Malt shows better in mouthfeel than in nose or upfront. A little sweet and buttery. Lingering bitterness.

A decent IPA that I missed when it was in bottles.

4/5  rDev -1.7%

Pours a hazy orange color with a 2" head that slowly falls to a thick surface covering. Floral hop and citrus filled aroma. Caramel, orange, mango, and a floral hop bitterness are the main flavors. Crisp from start to finish. Nicely refreshing and easy to quaff.

Quite an excellent offering from Rock Art. Very nice nose on this beer and it carries over into the taste. Certainly taking advantage of the sexy new hops out there. And the proceeds are going to a great cause. Would love to see this beer brewed more than only this one time. Far superior to RA's 6-pack IPA.
