Beerandhockey8 (235) - Three Forks, Montana, USA - APR 13, 2014
From 22oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a hazy orange yellow, with a thick white head. Nose is big hops, floral, citrus, earthy, piney. Taste is very balanced, mix of bitter ans sweet with a light-medium body. For such a big ABV, impressive IPA. Finishessharp, very drinkable and balanced which could be dangerous.

robto (41) - Belas, PORTUGAL - MAR 2, 2015
Draft at cerveteca bar in Lisbon. It pours a clear amber colour with a thin, but persistent white head. Aroma is boviusly hops, passion fruit, mango, but most of all floral. Taste is pines, tropical juice, citrus and. caramel malts. and bitterness at the end.It has a medium to low body and with decent carbonation. Decent IPA, although a little bit too watery and less bitterness as I expected.

TheJester (2001) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
650 mL bottle. The off-white headissmall, but persistent. The mild, hoppy aroma ismostly floral. There is some honey in there as well. The flavour is not over-the-top hoppy,. More citrus than floral. Pale Ale level bitterness. Very drinkable.

heman (128) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Piwo ma bursztynową barwę i jest idealnie klarowne. Piana jest intensywna, drobno-pęcherzykowa, zostaje cienką warstwą do końca picia i ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat jest bardzo świeży, chmielowy i zarazem słodki. Mamy dużo cytrusów, takich wręcz niedojrzałych (grejpfrut, cytryna) oraz owoców tropikalnych (mango, melon). W tle wyraźnie słodkie słody i zapach kandyzowanych owoców. Po ogrzaniu pojawia się lekka nuta alkoholowa. Jak przystało na IPA pierwszym co czujemy po przełknięciu jest wyraźna i mocna goryczka, jednak od razu kontrowana pełnią słodową. Następnie pojawiają się smaki chmielowe, głównie suszone liście tytoniu. Końcówka to ponownie potężna goryczka, ale bardzo krótka i niezalegająca. Po ogrzaniu w tle subtelnie pokazuje się alkohol, ale kompletnie nie przeszkadza. Piwo jest pełne, w ustach mamy ciągłą wojnę pomiędzy smakiem słodkim, a smakiem gorzkim.

Schwarzbart (68) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2015
Pours an off-white, thick, quilted head. Quite murky as I got the bottom of the bottle poured in my glass. Color is an amber-orange and lace is creamy. Medium-full body that's like a fuzzy cacti. Tastes of pine needles, pine resin, tea, orange zest, tropical juice, crackery malts and some perfume. It's pine tea. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Everything about this IPA was diluted. What I was expecting is not at all what I got. It’s more like an oily pale.

Canmoore (301) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma is bursting with hops: citrus, mango, apricot, and some pine. Tasting notes include pine, muddled citrus, mango, and a tad swampy. A nice malt backbone lingers beyond the hops. This is hoppy for sure, but not a bitter hop bomb. Decent IPA, but not eye popping.

Has a great aroma to it and a decently little kick. It's another fine choice of beer from Rogue. Most importantly, another quality IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freaky_tiki (672) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 27, 2015
Bottle pour at home on a late Friday afternoon (after a super tight moonshine based cocktail that has me humming) pours a beautiful brown with a classic dirty white cap. The nose tells you where this IPA is going (rich malts & salt of the earth hops) & where it’s not (punchy hop juice this isn’t). I think it’s cool they grow their own -- how’s that for the 100 mile revolution -- & you can taste the goodness in the drink. Yeah, sure, uh huh, I dig my IPAs all thick & juicy & full of tropical ganga goodness -- & this ain’t that -- but I also dig this & I’m glad my lame-as-hell local liqour store (a 4 min stumble from my house) is stocking. Recommended.

Unde (465) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 27, 2015
Orange colour and ok head. Head leaves circles of lacing behind. Aroma has caramel, cookies, raisin and some citrus on the background. Really sweet and malty aroma. Taste has sweet caramel malts, date cake and some berries. Well definitely not what I was expecting from a DIPA. Full texture and medium-to-low carbonation. Sadly hops are not present, maybe the keg wasn’t the freshest possible. Disappointment for sure.
