3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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. Dark amber with a frothy head. Nice fresh hop muted resin aroma, slightly dank but a nice smooth carbonation and full body, becomes dry and nicely bitter.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Very similar to the 6 hop IPA butt more hoppy and bitter. Again a very mild but fresh hopper remote with a little bit of caramel malt and toffee. Medium-length better finish. Quite drinkable but I like the six better.

Gylden brun klar med høyt eggegult skum. Lukter sydhavsfrukter, noe nøtter, plommer og ananas. Fyldig. Medium + i bitterhet. Dype fruktige toner, sydhavsfrukter og noe maltige innslag mot fudge og nøtter. Middels lang, noe alkohol i avslutningen.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355ml bottle. Pours amber with a little head. Aroma is caramel, peach, apple, melon. Flavour has more sweet caramel fruit up front and a biscuit finish, with some bitterness left to savour. It’s a big mess of caramel and biscuit malts and big bitter fruity hops, in the best way. Fabulous.
