On tap at Fat Heads Pittsburgh. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, biscuit, toffee, and light citrus. Flavor of caramel malts, toasted malts, bitter hops in the finish. Not a super hoppy wet hop, lots of malt presence here, but it’s quite good. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

Nice West Coast IPA. Bitter. Has a great depth -- a malty backbone perhaps is what I'm tasting? Very fresh, too. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle with Carla. Pours a slightly hazy gold with off-white foam. Smells sweet and lightly bitter with hints of grass and lemon. Tastes lightly sweet, very herbal with hints of lemon and plenty of bitterness.

This beer is fantastic. I love the fresh green hop aroma and flavor. I am not usually a fan of Rogue beers, but this shows that they can produce a winner. Great beer, for sure.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2012
22oz bottle. Poured a dark orange with a large foamy white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was earthiness, spicy hops and caramel. The flavor was sourish, astringent and made it quite hard to finish. Almost like a chemical cleaner was added. Probably up there with one of the worst wet hop brews I’ve had.

Sampled on 10/13/2012 at GABF. This India Pale Ale pours a slightly hazy medium yellow gold color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is herbal, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and citrusy. Nice carbonation. Nice lingering hop bitterness. All those Fresh hop flavors. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

On tap at The Hoppy Monk in El Paso, TX. Very bitter but didn’t have much substance to the flavors...not complex. I tried next to 2-3 other IPA’s and this one didn’t have the floral or general pine quality compared to the others. It was good, but not great.

10/29/12. On tap at Kickback’s. Hazy orange pour with a nice khaki head. There is some light caramel in the aroma with a bitter dose of pine and citrus. Nicely bitter, hoppy flavor again with citrus and pine. It dries the palate out for sure. Not bad, actually.

Love the aroma and appearance. The flavor is great and then dissipates into thin air...not a lasting flavor and I wish it was.

Had at the 2012 Denver Rare Beer Tasting in Denver, Colorado. Has subtle hop scents, has quite a bitter hop flavor, not much else.
