Hazy orange-copper body wears a good sized off-white foam, mostly lasting and displaying good lacing. Floral grapefruity citric nose, cascade like (though I suspect there’s more than that) reminds more of an IPA than anything else, but it has this earthy and sweet maltiness that reminds me of lost coast indica. It is indeed surprisingly bitter in mouth, but there’s a fair amount malty husky sweetness to keep it balanced. Finishes very dry, I’d be curious to try a fresh one as this bottle has quite a few months on it. Moderately high carbonation enhances the bitterness I feel and might be a bit lower, but solid overall oily textured mouthfeel. Quite an original one which I enjoyed more than I expected to and is considered such a classic that I’m surprised it’s the first time I enjoy it.

Rogue Nation Brutal India Pale Ale -- what’s not to like? Hazy yellow pour with an decent white head. Intoxicating aroma of citrus fruit and pine. Taste is more to the same citrusy and just enough pine to make it interesting but no bitter bite. Brutal is a well-balanced delicious IPA!

BobyFischer (293) - FRANCE - MAY 13, 2016
Blonde dorée, légèrement trouble, mousse blanche moyenne qui ne tient pas trop. Nez floral, ananas, fruits exotiques, fraise. Attaque amère, saveurs de fruits tropicaux et quelque peu de fruits rouges. Le corps est moyen, la longueur bonne et l’amertume persistante. Bonne IPA, exactement ce qu’on attend d’une american IPA !

Okay head, carbonated fruit juice body. Good heavy fruity hops aroma with sharp hints. Good hops notes, some nutty hints. Well balanced, drinkable, amongst the pack and you’d prolly drink it if you’re local but wouldn’t sell your house to go find the thing. (Yes - I’ve found beers like that. And I miss that house).

Bottle from Whole Foods. Been saving this for a while, £10 a bottle! Very nice. I was expecting more hop bitterness, overall nicely balanced and easy drinking strength. Don't usually rant about hop smells as I find it pretentious but... this one (to me) smells like Rhubarb & Custard sweets. Lush. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

C’est sans doute trop "malté" à mon goût ... Un côté sans doute aussi un peu trop "compoté" dans l’expression du houblon. C’est presque un bareley très houblonné ... C’est bien mais je suis pas fan. Ni de Rogue d’ailleurs

12 oz bottle: Orangeish blonde color, grassy and citrussy hop aroma, toffee maltiness. Initial sweetness on the palate like berry-flavored candy, followed by pleasant alcohol and bitterness. Good standard IPA.
