3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of malts, caramel, pine, tropical fruits, some herbal notes. Flavour is malty caramel, with a decent bitter finish. For a 7 Hop IPA I did not expect the caramel malt to dominate as much as it does. Quite tasty, but I had hoped for a stronger hop aroma.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma is very hoppy and a bit of alcohol, both disipated after about 5 mins
Taste is a little sweet, verry hoppy a bit green with a bitter citrus, resin and floral finish.
Aftertaste is bitter lingering on the tongue with a bitter coating that remains for a couple mins.

Bomber. Pours a deep clear copper/amber color. Nice beige head leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is earthy herbal hops and a bit of light sweet malt. Taste is a hop explosion. Earthy, piney, pith and resinous over a lightly sweet malt backbone. The 7 hops make up a very unique hop profile. Medium bodied with a good amount of bitterness on the finish. Very well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from Biernavigatie, BB 02/2015, large sample, served in a TeKu. Clear golden to amber color, medium frothy off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, bit grapefruit, hint of citrus, grassy, some amber malt. Firm bitter in taste, slight sharpish. Quite typical clean and malty american DIPA. Filtering gives it a bit straightforward feel and slight lack of complexity. Decent stuff.

Pearlescent gold lasting off white head. Light hop grain aromas. Hop bitter that grows from earthy to piny bitter that lasts.

Rogue has done a great job here. Such a mix of hops and still balanced with a nice citrus aroma and bitterness that hits but still a good balance on the malt. I had this in a bottle and due to try on tap tomorrow in Brew Dock Dublin. Personally I am not sure 7 hops needed and I prefer a style to keep simple and still deliver. Nice mouthfeel to this and very drinkable.
