Fort Collins Rocky Mountain IPA

Fort Collins Rocky Mountain IPA

This IPA is brewed by the Fort Collins brewery located in Fort Collins CO, and it carries a 6.2% ABV. I had high expectations for this beer but this is what I came up with.

The Rocky Mountain IPA pours out a nice copper color with a thick head and it does lace on the glass. The aroma of this IPA is a combo of sweet malts, with citrus, and piney hops but it really isn’t all the prominent and pleasant to the nostrils. When tasting this beer I found it to carry a sweet caramel malt front but that is overrun by some overbearing bitter hops.

Now normally I love a good hop kick in the face but this was ridiculous. It completely overpowered the beer and made it almost unbearable. I would not recommend this one, so don’t waste your money or taste buds.
