3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
First brew I’ve had from Rogue, heard a lot of good things, but never was convinced by word, so I gave em a shot on this one. Pour into snifter with a rosy-gold body and off-white lingering head. Aroma of fresh pine, resiny citrus, but most notably, an extraordinarily fresh floral scent in there (almost like sticking your face into a fresh bouquet) plus a very unique juiciness. Flavor is quite drinkable for the variety of hops used. Medium bodied with a subtle earthy bottom end, floral astringency, not-overly-resiny ripe citrus. Palatable mouthfeel for a double. Fresh/local hops truly highlighting unique flavors/scents other beers could never achieve. I’m a fan.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Outstanding hop aroma with malty undertones. Dark by IPA standards, nearly copper colored with an eggshell head. Spicy hop flavor with pine and a hint of grapefruit zest. Very complex with a good malt background. The palate is the only weak link in this beer. Not terrible, just a little watery. I would recommend this to anyone who wants an easy drinking DIPA that's not a complete hop bomb.

Gorgeous amber pour with thin beige head. Aroma is fruity: peach and mangoes that can be fully tasted. The 7 hops do the rest of the job for a wonderful IPA. Great.

Bottle-I’m not going to add much to here, except that this a fine quality IPA. It helped that I was drinking this after one very bad beer and one disappointing beer in one day. Add to this, we just grilled a fine New York strip with our favorite marinade, it added up to a great way to finish off the weekend. Golden brown color, medium head, nice, but not overwhelming hop aroma. Quite a mix of hop flavors, but still very tasty. Medium bite on the finish. Produce place 6.99

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange color with medium white head. Aroma is floral, citrusy and piney, with a good malt backbone. Medium to full body with a really good mouthfeel. Taste follows the aroma, with lots of floral and citrus hops and a piney/resiny backbone. Malts are very present, with a really sweet sugary profile. Aftertaste is its weakeast point, I expected a much more bitter finish from a 90 IBU beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from friend’s house. Poured into a snifter. Light orange color with puffy eggshell head and lacing. The aroma was complex hops with ample citrus and pine combined. Lazy summer backyard mowing aroma as well. Taste was up front hop forward with pine and then moderate citrus. Clean and balanced. Malty backbone. Crisp finish.
