Pours hazy copper. Foamy, medium, white head fades fast.

Smells tropical, citrus, citrus peel and herbal.

Tastes bready malt, tropical, citrus peel and pine. Finish is dry with pine ave citrus peel linger. Medium body and creamy medium carbonation. Not as flavorful as i thought it would be from smell.

This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a semi-dark hazy bronzed orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing roaming all around the glass in a messy sort of fashion. The smell starts off with a nice tropical fruitiness rolling over some nice sweet onion hop oils. It lets in a nice grassiness to balance. The taste had a bittersweet citrus to tropical fruitiness and rind like qualities. The sweet onion blends in with the grassiness again. There’s no aftertaste but it does have a nice sweet onion/grassy/tropical fruitiness running over in the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with an okay sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes fairly harsh, probably could have been a tad milder to allow the hops be the bitterness. Overall, for the most part, it’s a real nice DIPA, definitely different for Rock Art. I think if Rock Art tamed the carbonation just a bit, this one could be a knock out.

Poured from a 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a hazy pale yellow orange with a thin white head.

Aroma is an intense orange tangerine combo that's delicious.

Taste is a lot more of the orange with bitter pithy peel.

Delicious beer.

From a can dated 1/10/17. This is my first Rock Art beer. While this doesn't stack up to some of the hazy DIPAs coming out of Vermont, it is a solid effort and would hold its own if not surrounded by Hill Farmstead, Alchemist, Lawson's, Foley Bros., and Fiddlehead. Rock Art did a nice job with this one.

Tall can...1-10-17 on the bottom..

Pours heavily hazed, a nice warm shade of darker orangy amber, moderate cap, going to a fine bubble film, thin collar and leaving nice looking fine sheeting all over the glass.

Earthy, herbal and mildly citric sniff..smells fresh and lively

Tasty, boldly flavorful and full of interest....some citrus, some tropical, some resiny notes...put it all together and you get a complex, well crafted and thoroughly worthy and well worth seeking out can of DIPA
