Rome City is an American IPA brewed by Brew Hub, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in an IPA glass from a can.
Pours a hazy marigold with an inch-thick head of soapy white foam that reduces slowly. A ring of residue clings to the glass. Fine sediment is visibly afloat.
Floral hops dominate the aroma.
The palate is just as hoppy with pine and floral notes; finishing with a citrusy bite of lemon and grapefruit. An underlying tropical fruit sweetness of pineapple and mango is also present. Malt is subtle, adding a slight caramel balance.
Mouthfeel has a medium body and moderate carbonation.
The Rome City IPA is a pretty tasty offering from Brew Hub; packing a lot of flavor at a relatively low 5.8% ABV. Would certainly enjoy again and you should, too.
Brew Hub is located in Lakeland, Florida, and when the town was incorporated at the end of the 19th century, the name Rome City was considered. And such is the inspiration behind the name of this craft beer.
The beer was also recently awarded the Gold Medal in the Session IPA category at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.
