TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Hazy straw-hued orange. Gentle pour raises a voluminous cap of fluffy and sticky white froth. Charming nose of apricot jam, white grapefruit, dried pineapple, lightly toasted biscuits and candied pecan. Soft, graceful carbonation. Complex inundation of citrusy and leafy hops are capped with a kumquat-peel bitterness and juicy dabs of lemon pulp. Clean and deeply complex hop profile. Savory toasty-malt foundation showcases comfortable heft and remains appropriately secondary to the voluptuous hop blend. Malt persists with light notes of crackers along with a crisp earthy crackle which dovetails with the lustrous peach-candy esters. Airy phenols gently dust the palate, lightening the weight of the body and bolstering drinkability. Resins cling to the palate, but are fairly polished and stop shy of tarnishing the predominately bright hop character. The well-balanced finish juggles pepper-, grass- and leaf-tinged hop bitterness with sweet and toasty toffeeish malt. When fresh, this is a very good brew. A refreshing change of pace from your monotonous run-of-the-mill American IPAs riddled with grapefruit rind and caramel. Comes off as more of a hoppy golden ale than an IPA, but regardless of style, cheers to Rogue for creating an original, quaffable, and balanced hopcentric beer.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, slightly hazy, moderate white frothy head, nice lacing.   Soft perfumy aroma, slight hop presense, pale malt aroma.   Slightly bittersweet perfumy start, moderate hop bitterness.   Has a biting resiny aspect, minor grainess.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Slightly astringent finish.   Okay IPA, but a little harsh overall.   Seems somewhat clean, but has a perfumy aspect that makes it seem hotter than normal.   Its like it tries to hard to be much bigger.

VertBaconStrips (2106) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 6, 2011
Drank this back in the summer of 2010. Poured out a light orange brew thatís a bit hazy with a big thick solid white cap with tons of lacing - amazing. This is the perfect looking beer. Fresh and fruity aroma, somewhat malty, nectar, nectarine, apricot, a bit floral, light caramel and quiet fragrant. Plenty of caramel flavour, light pine and very very bitter. Citrus, grapefruit bitterness and a touch of heat... not sure what that is about. Nothing crazy but just plain old goodness. Medium carbonation, hardcore bitterness with a long finish on a medium body.

Bottle from trade with Savvy1982. Pours orange with a small head. Aromas are pine and sweet citrus. Flavors are full pine, citrus, honey, resin and more bitter hops. Awesome, wish i could buy it here.

Sask89 (418) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 16, 2010
Pours a golden yellow colour with a small white head, slightly cloudy. Aroma is of citrus fruits, hops, and pine. Taste is a little sweet at first then becomes quite strong and bitter throughout the finish. Average carbonation, medium body, smooth on the palate. Overall a nice IPA.

hobbersr (690) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 9, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow with a nice head. The aroma is piney and has a ton of grapefruit. The flavor has grapefruit, orange, pine, resin, honey and a long bitter finish. Not bad.

TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
Hops have a definate sour/citrus grapefruit aroma, smells like the hops used for preservation took a backseat to nicer, softer aromas. Some head on pour, alright lacing, really nice orange colour, somewhat hazy. The taste is dominated by the same bitterness as the aroma, the malt have a slight appearance but then the hops fade out the palate. Itís a bit too concentrated on the bitterness, which isnít my favourite flavour. Whereís the Cascade?!? Sorry, I had to. Not bad really, but not too my preference. I should note I had a 1000 IBU earlier today.

Pooks great. Amber with a thick white head. Once the bottle is opened the smell of hops fills the air. On closer inspection the nose is very complex and bring out the strong hop notes. Flavour is great. Now this is an IPA. I taste the amarillo right off the bat which then gives away into deep rich organic flavours. Strong bitterness in the finish. The yeast works perfectly for this IPA. What a great beer!!

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 11, 2010
Bomber brought back from the brewery by larryLSB. Opaque gold color with some chunky sediment and a thick white head that has good retention and lace. Papaya, lime, pine, and mango aroma. Fruity and sweet flavor, though mostly hop fruity and not yeast fruity. Thick pineapple and papaya hop flavor. Bitterness is firm but doesnít stick out. Orange creeps in there as well as sweet pale bready malt. Medium body with lighter carbonation. Hop candy that isnít super pungent but gets all tropical and fruity in a fun way. No way this is 90 IBUs. Definitely a standout "Rogue" beer.
