DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 24, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2009 On draught at Plan B (Simsbury, CT): Pours like apricot juice with a decent head. Nose is mango, apricot, orange, and papaya purťe, honey, and sweet, floral hops. Flavors are big on hops with a balance of fruity, sweet malts. A touch of honey lingers in the finish. Soft bodied, mildly carbonated. Drinkability: Soft, and hoppily luscious. Itíll make anybody happy. Rebuy: Certainly. #219 on 24112009, DG.

Huge hops, mostly citrus with really big grapefruit as well as some pine. Not much malt backbone in this thing but itís a nice hop bomb for those enjoy such beers.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2010 650mL bottle, thanks Greg for sharing this one. Amber colour with decent white head. Nose of grapefruit, honey and grass. Flavour of more grapefruit, apricot and lots of grassy hops in the finish. A bit too citrusy for me.

This is a good beer. Iím not usually that big on Rogueís general line of beers, but this is nice. Very pale. Itís somewhat thin, but thereís lots of grassy hops to it with the malt to balance it.

650ml bomber from the lcbo. Great pungent citrucy floral hops. Wonderful hoppiness in the flavor witha great citrus aftertaste and a good bitter kick. Some nice malt create some balance. This is a great solid balanced ipa.

Bomber from my local LCBO. This, and Southern Tiers Creme Brulee stout, at the same time, in the same store???? Perhaps thereís hope after all. Pours a manuka golden yellow with a thin white, lightly sticky head. The aroma is hop resin, grape fruit, citrus rind, papaya (strange), with some bready malt for a baseline. The flavour, as you can imagine from itís aroma, and the fact that itís a rogue beer (those guys are hop chronics), itís crazy hoppy, like JesseM says, as if you were chewing on whole leaf hops, citrus, grapefruit rind, some malty sweetness for balanced. Foamy mouthfeel, semi sweet, mostly uber bitter finish. Pretty delicious, one of my more favorite beers from Rogue.

PaulHegedus (85) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2010 Bottle. Itís a fairly pale golden orange colour with a massive, thick and yeasty, lasting head, two and a half inches thick. Looks great! The aroma is piney and full with fresh tropical fruit, sliced avocado, mango, white grapefruit, papaya: very nicely layered. Thereís some bready malt in there too. Mouthfeel is lightly oily, slick, full. I taste plenty of initial hop bitterness, with white and pink grapefruit, damp pine, grass and very nice malt balance, some caramel in there perhaps with more brown bread. Wood presence is strong. The finish is fairly long with more citrus fruit and bitterness.

500ml bottle. Bright golden colour with a luscious white ehad, very well carbonated. High hop aroma, floral and fragrant with a hoppy tatse. Long bitter finish.
