pours a pale golden with a half inch head that sticks around the whole way through lots of citrus and lemon and nice bready malt taste aroma is more lemons possibly some grapefruit I thought 7 hop varieties might be too many but it is fantastic

This beer has an awesome pine aroma and a grapefruit finish. There was more going on that I couldn’t quite place, only had a growler. Really want to find this again.

This was the first beer I had after my 40 day abstention and what a good one I picked. Tons of very tasty hops. But enough malts too. Great!

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2014 Rogue I2PA was the first double/imperial IPA I ever had back in 1999. It remains one of the most expensive. This offering came in the appropriate price range. I like the traditional style of the rogue ipas even with their reformulations with their own hops. This beer was a perfect blend of their farms hops and the malt was perfect upon first test. Three months after my first bottle, the second was still good but nothing like what this was fresh. A pine lemon zest hop profile with a light biscuit malt presence. Over time the hops seemed to lose the layers in their profile and the malt got more of a honey toffee feel.
