12 oz can from Tennessee.
Hazy amber-copper body with a decent head.
Pine and tropical fruit notes dominate three aroma. The flavor is more juicy with some citrus added.
Smooth, medium-full body.

Poured from the 12 ounce can.

Hazy orange with a respectable head of foam.

The nose is hoppy with grapefruit citrus pine and mango.

The taste is very grapefruit bitter. Like juice was poured into my glass along with the beer. Some pine and orange peel. This takes bitterness seriously and it is a bit much to my palate. A hard to drink IPA in my book.

Saw Works Brewing Company is a brewery straight out of my home state. Located in Knoxville, TN, I hope to make a pit stop at this brewery the next time I venture home for a visit. Currently, Saw Works Brewing offers four different brews to try: A brown ale, a pale ale, No Easy Day IPA, and the one I am currently drinking, their Rocky Hop IPA.

This beer pours a beautiful golden copper... continue reading https://agrainoftruthblog.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/saw-works-brewing-company-rocky-hop-ipa/

Served on draft at Aubreys in Lenoir City, TN. This one looked great coming to the bar. Clear and clean looking golden color with a frothy, creamy white head. Tons of lacing and nice head retention. The aroma was very lackluster. Not much going on. Slight floral hop aroma but nothing rememberable (or memorable if you insist on perfect grammar). Flavor was lackluster as well. There was a nice hop bitterness but it wasn't backed up with any real flavor. There was an aspirin like, chalky, astringent taste that is probably attributed to overly bitter hopping or the wrong malt. Dry as hell. Slightly drinkable but I couldn't crush more than two without needing a tonguectomy (that's a tongue replacement and/or removal surgery for you medically disinclined).

Appearance: Slightly hazy, golden copper that pours a 1 finger head. Medium-light lacing.
Smell: Earthy, citrus odor (mostly orange)
Taste: At first blush, this beer seems to fall flat, but there is a lot of subtlety in the flavor. The citrus hops truly blossom and balance well with the malt, spice, and earthy flavors.
Feel: Medium body and carbonation. Nice finish.
Overall: The Rocky Hop IPA is an earthy take on the American IPA style that really brings a lot of flavor to the table and is worth the experience.
