This was another experimental IPA to try out a new hop that had a great description and I wanted to try it out- Rakau hops from New Zealand. I then made the leap from Rakau to Rocky, and this beer was named!
Sweet/fresh hop aroma. Smooth initial taste with mix of hops and light malt. No real hop bitterness except a bit in the aftertaste. Goes down smooth, but as the hop flavors grow in the aftertaste, it gives an overall hoppy experience.
