Maltybones (62) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2009
A beautiful hazy orange pour with a dense pure white head and high carb. Pine, lemon, grass, floral notes and a herby quality are all there in the aroma. A super bready backbone sets the stage for spruce-pine notes, loads of citrus and a great long bitter finish. A creamy, medium-to-light body makes this a dangerously sessionable beer for 6.2%. On par with Stone and Two-Hearted IPA in my opinion.

BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a fluffy white head over a slightly hazed yellow. Aroma of honey, orange peel and caramel. Taste is grain, floral, fruit and citrus zest. Lingering bitterness and slight cardboard. Not much of an IPA. Prickly carbonation, dry finish, well attenuated.

Ughsmash (7185) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Bomber. Poured hazy peach with a moderate cap of white head.. nice color to it. The aroma picked up juicy grapefruit, apricots, and spicy pine over a candied caramel base.. almost sticky-sweet as it warmed up. The flavor was more bitter than the nose indicated.. grassy and pine notes provided the bitters, while the grapefruit and floral notes gave more flavor.. simple, sweet caramel base.. the balance never really came together for me. Medium-bodied with thick carbonation on the palate.. bitterness was heavy throughout, but not necessarily enjoyable.. OK stuff.

Bottle. A milestone for me, after this, there are no locally-sold IPAs left for me to rate. Should feels like an accomplishment, kinda feel let down. Oh well, on to the rating: Pours a classic IPA orange, with a great white head with fantastic laing, which reduces disappointingly quickly to a frothy skim across the top of the beer. Nose is wonderful; though simple; pine, citrus, perfume, precious little malt. Nice and hoppy on the palate, tastes like a Rogue product. (My sausage dog has dropped his ball in his water dish and has been trying to fetch it out for the past ten minutes, hahaha!) Some malt here, but overrun with soap, hops, and citrus/pine. A solid effort, but hardly worth raving about.

anders37 (17658) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2009
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty hoppy aroma with some citrus hints. Sweetish malty hoppy flavor with hints of grapefruit. Has a fruity malty hoppy bitter finish.

This is the beer that made me realize I am not a fan of reeeeally hoppy beer. Smells like a forrest with sap ooozing down trees. I t’ve Rogue use twice as much ingredients and if you like a hoppy beer then give this a try. Mabye my palate will change down the road.

MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 Poured out a rocky two-fingered white head with some nice lacing at the end. The body was an orangey-looking thing, and it gave off a subdued aroma that might’ve had some hopping to it. Taste was much, much better with lots of hopped bitterness. Mouth and finish were good.

Baby keg. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Floral and citrus hops in the nose. Flavor is sweet and malty with a nice dash of tangy citrus hops. Finish is dry and crisp. Nice.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 30, 2009
From a 22oz bomber this IPA poured a murky yellowish orange, with plenty of head, lots of lacing and a few clumps of miscellaneous debris for good measure. Big aroma of floral hops, pine, malts and citrus. Great taste of grapefruit, hops and plenty of floral taste going on as well. Good solid IPA - one of my favorite Rogue brews to date.

Bottle. Eerily enough the pour is piss yellow. Malt and hop aroma with hops taking over flavor. This is mediocre from rogue.
