Share This Review

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.

Appearance

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.

Aroma

Floral hops dominate the aroma.

Flavor

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

Mouthfeel has a medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall

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.

Miscellaneous

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.

About the American IPA

The American IPA is the most popular craft beer style in the United States. And for good reason, too. When well crafted, its hoppy goodness delivers intense aromas and flavors that can be citrusy and fruity; floral and piney; earthy and herbal. The hops are complemented by a wide range of malts and other ingredients. It’s a popular playground for brewers to express their creativity and a veritable cornucopia for craft beer connoisseurs.
