Keg at The Three Johns, Islington, Easter Sunday 5th April 2015 Pours dark amber, hazy, a white/off white sticky head. Typical big hitting US IPA, malty and hoppy, bitter but with a heavy sweetness. It is sweet and a little cloying but, it’s still damn good. A7 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.7

Bottle. Pour is a bright hazy orange. The aroma is fruits and hops, strong. The taste is big and hoppy, but almost seems a little diluted and watered down.

Carbonation is soft. the finish is long . This is one of the best best beers I’ve had! I would definitely recommend this to any one who loves hoppy beers.

Hazy orange pour with clingy white foam - this one’s a looker! Despite the name, aroma is bread and caramel with only subdued floral notes. Flavors are similar - malty with not so much bitterness, but tangy citrus in the middle. Long, enjoyable finish/aftertaste.

The biggest surprise about 7 Hop IPA is its evenness of intensity. The straightforward name might make you preemptively brace yourself for a hop bomb. However, Rogue’s ale is crafted for balance. The aroma is actually malt-forward with heavy influences of bread and caramel. The hops are more assertive once they reach the tongue, but only slightly more so. Rather than aggressive bitterness, you get more herbal sensations. There are also touches of wood and citrus. Despite the subdued sharpness, the mouthfeel is still crisp. 7 Hop IPA doesn’t rewrite the rules, but it shouldn’t be overlooked.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A hazy, dark orange, a head is weak and blond. Aroma has strong caramelly malts, mandarin and citrusfruits, some rainy pine forest and sweet fruits. Quite fresh even despites of sweetness. Taste has caramel, quite strong bitterness, citrusfruits, some wet pine needles. Medium+ bodied, low carbonation, surprisingly fresh to drink. Aging has done some damage but still nicely balanced and complex.
