4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle from the shelf, no date apparent, drunk 5/17/16. Assumedly fairly fresh.
Large, foamy, off-white head tops a light amber-bronze body with high clarity. Moderate to strong retention on the head.
Cherry, juicy lime, light earth, hints of pineapple and ending with a large amount of ruby red grapefruit. There’s a strong undercurrent of woody, dank, spicy character and a pretty strong mint-like note that is interesting but odd. Malts show light bread and touches of dry toffee while alcohol is concealed and the beer is clean.
Cherry, lime, grapefruit and dank, vegetal, woody notes seem pretty straightforward, with base malt sweetness balancing properly and attenuation seeming to be medium-high. There’s a really strange mint-lime-basil flavor that is intriguing but rather out-of-place in the beer. As well, while there’s no heavy resin or huge bitterness, it’s a bit more malty than I’d like and on the sweeter side of semi-dry.
Would be nice to know how old this was....but alas I guess Rogue doesn’t care enough to date their hoppy beers....

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of citrus, caramel, candied orange, mild grapefruit, and grass. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is a good amount of thin sticky lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate citrus, light fruit, and a touch of caramel. The finish has light-moderate citrus hops, grapefruit, and some candied orange. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber-orange colored, bit unclear, off white creamy medium head, good lacing. Aroma is of malt and caramel, some orange hard candy, tropical fruity, but mostly the hops are subdued. Taste is medium+ sweet malt, caramel, orange hard candy, medium tropical fruits, some light floral and citrus notes, medium bitterness, mineral, dry finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily. The guys at the shop brought the bottle from the basement but it seems the Atlantic voyage did its part before... hops dead Jim...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy medium golden with a creamy head. Lots of citrus and fruit in the aroma. Interesting flavor. Not very bitter but it does have a bit of a bight. Somewhat sweet on the front end with a bit of pine in the finish. Over time it does pucker along the back sides of the tongue a bit.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
You can’t always trust Rogue, but this time they made something good. Typically honey-orange colored beer with a small foamy head. Aroma is kind of subtle, but with notes of especially orange and flowers. Tastewise some sweet orange as well but with a pungent and fresh grassy feel to it. Slightly perfumed as well, but not unpleasant.
