Pours a beautiful translucent, dark golden honey-brown. The aroma is nice and hoppy though not strong. Taste is wildly hoppy, with hints of lemon and honey-like sweetness. Bitterness is restrained.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Brewers on the Bay. Aroma of sourdough bread, lightly citrus hops, and wood. Smooth flowery taste with some mingling citrus, bread and pilsnery flavors. Aftertaste is rather bready which dries out to a woody bitterness. Good stuff, but I was hoping for more considering its good rating and my partialness to Rogue beers.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big amber-golden pour, nice huge fluffy and creamy white head, lingered nicely. The aroma was full of citrus and pine, perhaps the most citrusey beer I’ve had from Rogue, diggin’ it! Flavor was citrus, resinous pine and a full hearty resinous mouthfeel, strong crystal malt backbone, maybe too much (and I dig crystal malts). I like an IPA with firm malt support, but the malts here got a little too heavy, would rather do the Stone IPA, similar flavors, a little less full feeling, yet short of being hop water. A nice brew, one of my more liked by Rogue.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler purchased @ statelineliquors. Medium statured tan head with good retention and a fair amount of stringy lace hanging around. Clear gold, light copper hued ale. Nose is fruty, citrusy lightly tropical and malty. Body is med/full, biting on the palate, lightly resiny and juicey., good mouthfeel. Big hop flavors greet you, a touch piney, nicely fruity, apricot, orange and backed up with a bit of dry maltiness. A very flavorful brew. Finish is dry and fruity with that signature Rogue hop bite. Well done Rogue.

On tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Pour was a dark gold with no head. Aroma of grassy hops. Hoppy taste with some earth, citrus and a little malt on the back end. Very little carbonation and not very crisp. A so so IPA

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated yellow-orange colored body. The weak aroma was hoppy. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The weak flavor contained notes of dirty hops. An OK brew just nothing special. Kind of a disappointing brew from Rogue.
