2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint @ Pub at Piperís Creek, $5.00. When I order a beer at bar, no matter how divey, I never expect it to look like muddy pond water. Imagine my surprise when thatís exactly what this brew looked like. Smelled hoppy enough but the body was thin and unsatisfying (something I find often with Rogueís new Risk Malt). Iím not angry, just unimpressed.

22 oz bomber pours deep brown with a thin off white head. Aroma of toffee, roasted malt and a touch of citrus. Taste of malt, hops and a bit of sweetness.

Growler. So darky w/ more roasted chocolate malt than expected (this really lost the IPA spirit). Hoppy, yeah, but the body was heavy.

Good work Rogue, again. Only gripe is nose is way to soft. Looks like a stout and has the roasted malts and coffee bite but also a hoppy citrus tinge. Nice.

Sampler @ brewpub.
Pours deep dark red color with small head. Aroma of tar, ripe fruits, hops and malts. Flavour of tar, ripe fruits, caramel, malts and lemon. Decent brew with a interesting aroma.

Solid and well balanced for the style. Almost a hoppy porter. Thinnish body, roasted malt, chocolate and a soft bitter finish. Solid as always from Rogue but certainly not on repeat playlist.

Truth be told, this rating may be a little low for how I usually rate IPAs, but it just wasnít the right beer at the time I opened it. Quite bitter and astringent and too thick for what we all were craving. Good but not the right beer at the time.
