igneous1 (1517) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - AUG 23, 2015
22oz bottle, bronze color, hazy, light carbonation. creamy, offwhite head. aroma is heavy on caramel malt, almost buttery. can only pick up a hint of piney hops. flavor is again dominated by a caramel maltiness. flavor has some bitter herbal notes. i assumed when i opened this, it’d be hop heavy, but ended up being malt heavy. wonder if this is old.

En bouche attaque énorme sur le pin, l’épicéa et le sapin, continuité sur le malt maltose, sucre et alcool. Fin de bouche retour sur les conifères et avec une pointe d’agrumes, d’anis et de réglisse.

Nice hop and malt scents, very dark golden color. Great malt and hop flavors, with a solid after taste. Different from the one I had on tap in the brewery.

On tap, Ale & the Witch. Slightly cloudy golden pour with a small but thick off-white head. Strong grassy/floral aroma with some citrus and stone fruit in the background. Big hit of grapefruit up front in the flavor, followed by a sweeter honey-biscuit profile, and rounding out to a bitter pine resin finish. A little thin and watery. Very nicely balanced IIPA given the broad range of hops and malts used.

VamboladeTolly (777) - Tartu, ESTONIA - AUG 6, 2015
Bottle. BB 09.2015. Pours clody golden with yellowish head. Aroma is not good, too malty, sweet, caramel, slight grass- hops are already dead. Taste is up to medium bitter, medium sweet, grassy, caramel, rotten fruits. Medium body. Have to try it when its fresh.

Bottle. Amber color with a very good head. Awesome aroma: freshest hops, juicy, nectar. Taste sweet and bitter, fruity and citrus, very good DIPA.

UXO (863) - CANADA - AUG 3, 2015
Appearance: clear deep gold with one fingers of ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin ring, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: pine, caramel malt, tropical fruit, light citrus. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering mildly bitter finish. (4/5) Little disappointing. Aw, who’m I kidding, it’s Rogue, it’s not like I’m surprised or anything. The kitchen sink of hops is a bit muddled and doesn’t come through cleanly over the caramel malt. OK, not great. (14/20)

bubbleflubber (2053) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Pours a light orange-amber into the glass with a substantial frothy head that leaves nice retentive ring lacing. The nose is gorgeous, of tangerines, passionfruit, spruce-pine forestry, nectarines, apricots and peaches. A perfect tribute to the aroma of stone fruits. Flavors are held in check wonderfully, with lots of melon, stone fruits, woody bitters and a pine resin finish. For such complexity and substance, this brew is extremely quaffable with a medium-light body, a semi-active mouthfeel via the citrusy-melon juiciness complementing the medium carbonation zest on the palate. Extremely impressive, this is a very well-balanced brew with complexity for days, and still refreshing and citrusy. What a great combination of Rogue Farms' 7-hop profile. Absolutely delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

cervmagpt (435) - PORTUGAL - JUL 31, 2015
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 22A). Bottle 65 cl - Batch unknown. AROMA: a nice blend of strong floral aromas, mixed with fruits (some passionfruit and lychees) and pine. restrainged sweet malty background. APPEARANCE: orange color and just slight hazy. moderate ivory head with average retention. some lacing. TASTE: hop flavour predominant with notes similar to the aroma but a bit more restrained (floral, lychees, pine). background of a supportive and slight sweet malt character. medium-low bitterness with semi-dry finish and bitter. PALATE: medium-light body with a slight smooth texture. medium carbonation and no hop derived astringency. alcohol warmth very faint. OVERALL: a very good and complex double IPA with a plethora of hop notes and flavours. recommended.
