A bit confused by the near perfect scores for this beer. Like most Rogue Ales, this is a bit too malty to be a true hop monster. The aroma leans strongly towards malt with earthy and subtle flowery and citrus hop notes as well. The flavor is a bit of a mess. For starters the mouthfeel is soft and a bit watery. There’s no cohesion amongst the crop of hops with each seemingly vying for my palates attention. It’s simply too many flavors and they don’t blend. In the end I was left with a fairly dry bitter finish with a some lemon. A very good example of why you can’t just throw all the hops you’ve got into a batch...

Bottle. Vibrant cloudy amber beer with a strong head. The aroma is lightly hopped and the flavour is fairly deeply hopped with a great degree of bitterness and yeasty floralness. Overall a nice strongly flavoured IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

garza (570) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - NOV 23, 2014
Pours with a dark orange colour and an average size white foamy head. Herbal and grainy aroma but very subtle. Also herbal and grainy in the taste with a light sweetness and a nice medium-high bitterness. Extraordinary good palate, low carbonation and a long bitter after taste. It’s one if the best IPA’s that I’ve tried in the last years. Very good.

Idiosynkrasie (4023) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 18, 2014
650ml bottle. Hazy golden colour with average to huge, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Fruity and resinous, hoppy aroma, notes of orange, orange zest, tangerine, grapefruit, passion fruit. Taste is initially bitter hoppy, slightly muggy caramel malty with bitter almond touch, some resin, eventually in the last third more fruity and citrusy hoppy, notes of lemon and passion fruit,; in the finish again slightly muggy, hints of sticking-plaster. Inharmonious, some off-flavours, slightly sugary (sugar powder). Not playing Champions League.

NikkTwist (1708) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Hazy bright orange copper pour that started with several tufts of big-bubble off-white foam that disappeared quickly. Fragrant IPA. Juicy amber red fruits and earthy resiny, floral herbal hops. Blood oranges. Plums. Cactus pear. Candy apples. Hoppy spice.

Rusty Bucket, Dayton, draft. Nearly perfect IPA, but missing a head and lacing, maybe due to the pour and glass. Dark orange/yellow and cloudy (as it should be). Moderately bitter, hoppy and grapefruity. Great palate and aftertaste. It's good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pivnizub (9000) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle: Light amber coloured, big and stable brownish head; dry piney nose with a bready touch, herbal traces of cough syrup underneath; pretty solid bitter flavour, balanced by a delicate sweetness;, medium bodied and pretty soft; cough-syrup - again - and toasted malt in the otherwise piney-hoppy finish. Well balanced and very good...

DrDrood (12) - GERMANY - NOV 9, 2014
Goldgelbes IPA mit schöner stabiler Schaumkrone. Grapefruit , Pampelmuse und Malz liegen einem in der Nase. Für die sieben verarbeiteten Hopfensorten sehr malzlastig und nussig im Geschmack. Die erwartete Fruchtbombe bleibt aus dafür ordentlich Bittereinheiten.
