3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2005 Orange body with a moderate off white head that lasts a long time. Bottle "cellared" for almost a year since I forgot about it! Big hoppy aroma - pine and resin. Flavour is also resin dominant. Malt is present but it is relegated to the supporting cast. Dry alcoholic resin finish washes away glimpses of sweet orange citrus in the middle. Alcohol is pleasant at first but becomes less so as the glass goes on. Medium palate. A bit more time in the bottle might smooth it out. 8/4/7/4/15
<P>Original Rating Bottled. Orangey with no head to speak of. Aroma is a malty alchol "barleywine" like aroma. Very hoppy, but relatively well balanced - not as bitter as I expected. The malt is not very noticable but is enough to keep the bitter from being too over the top. Body is thick but not creamy. A sipper, it leaves the mouth a tad dry. 6/3/7/4/16

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Ibrew Wired. Classic pine/citrus hop bouquet, rich orange fruitiness balanced with caramel malt, dry bitter finish. Meant to try this one for a while, solid stuff, Rogue rarely messes up with their brews.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, and wildcard. Very unique Rogue goblet. Clean appearance with an orange hue. Head disappeared quickly and wasn?t all that full in the first place. Citrus and tropical fruit in the nose with some bitterness. Mouthfeel is oily and resiny. Plenty of hops with a smooth citrus taste. Easy to drink and gets better as consumption continues. Rogue delivers an enjoyable although slightly straightforward double IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large Format - Thick white head with large bubbles. Cloudy orange color with what looks like suspended particles in the beer. Very thick beer if that makes sense. Taste has a good amount of hop bitterness, little to no malt flavor which is good.

On tap. Pours clear golden with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, butterscotch, light sweet fruits, some alcohol. Taste is strong sweet malts, some light fruitiness again, robust vegetal bitterness, quite some booze. Oily mouthfeel, full body, light carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy to cloudy pale amber with one fingers of rocky white head, good retention and minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, pithy citrus, pine resin, mild floral. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly boozy finish. (4/5)
Nothing too thrilling - a fairly standard heavy-handed, malt-forward DIPA. Doesn’t excite me, doesn’t turn me off. Damned with faint praise? Maybe - but that’s about what it deserves. (12/20)
