Bubeer (98) - - MAY 16, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Draught. Slightly hazy, dark gold to brown. Medium head, medium retention. Resin and floral aroma, some caramel notes. Heavy bitter. Oily, sticky texture. Long bitter finish. Lively carbonation.

Dredd (716) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
Delightful. Butterscotch and spicy pine hop aroma. Pour is hazy amber with thin white head. Flavor is mainly malt, some grapefruitand a long pine finish. It does an excellent job concealing the 8% and.

Cunningham (5468) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2015
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Powerful aroma with a bit to much toffee and a bit overripe fruity. Also pine and grapefruit hoppy. Full body and a bit unbalanced sweetness. Malty, toffee, rich fruity, a bit harse grapefruit hoppy and pine in the flavor. Not my type of double ipa.

Nice overall taste for this IPA with a weak pallet. We enjoyed the 7 different hops. Cheers to Rogue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

65cl bottle at Smelteverket, Oslo. Pours clear amber with a modest head. Rather hoppy aroma with pine, caramel, fruity notes and hints of citrus and herbs. Sweet hoppy juice with and a decent bitterness. Fairly balanced, but not so fresh, but still quite tasty.

bookman10 (725) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Pours a cloudy, golden-yellow, with thick, mid-sized head. Sweet, fruity aroma--some citrus, some tropical fruit. Flavor is very sweet--too much malt sweetness for my palate--with fruit flavors and just a touch of hop bite (wish there was more, to be honest). I’m much more a fan of the drier, more hop-forward IPAs, which this is not.

rosenbergh (8426) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Draught at the Rogue Taproom, Portland, OR. Clear golden colour with a tiny off-white head. Sweet fruity and piney hops, moderate bitterness, hoppy freshness and some maltiness in the aroma. Tempting. The flavour is sweet hops, pine, mild resin, strong bitterness and strong sweet maltiness. Strong one. Tasty one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dfinney23 (2236) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Fruity and floral but not as complex as a secret blend of seven hops would suggest. Finish is quite bitter.

ZodiacM (284) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2015
Een zeer prettige IPA, 7 hopsoorten. Dat schept verwachtingen. En die worden waargemaakt. Een hoppige, ietwat zoetige geur (gedroogd fruit?). De smaak is complex: hoppig, bloemig, grassig, grapefruit, mango, noten, gedroogd fruit. De nasmaak is heerlijk bitterzoet. Zo wil ik ze vaker!

King_Alex_II (522) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 2, 2015
Muddy brown color with moderate foam layer. Flowery fresh smell with bitter notes. Mild hoppy bitter, with citrus and slight sweetness (and possibly nuts?). Dry, little tart and bitter aftertaste.
