13mikey (503) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Tried some at a beer tasting. Interesting flavor, very prominent grapefruit smell and taste to it in a good way. Tasted like the the bitter of the grapefruit was married to the bitterness of the hops. I bought a bottle for further investigation.

VertBaconStrips (2151) - Asshat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2009
Cloudy, mucky yellowish orange brew that produced a huge white tit above my glass. Leaves lots of messy lacing. The aroma is of tons of citrus, grapefruit, lemon, pine, ok malts. the aroma is pretty interesting but I’m not sure if this is in a good way. Pretty floral as well. But there is an odd smell that I’m thinking just smells like tropical fruit that has been sliced up and has sat in the open for longer than it should. Something else almost gamey. The taste is ok at best - there is nothing wrong but there is nothing that would place this above any of the random IPA’s available - stiff grapefruit that leaves my mouth amazingly dry, sweet lemon, weak caramel - however there is a very real malt backbone to this brew - one that just dulls the hop attack enough to make this chuggable. Light medium bodied or less, forgettable mouth feel - very unspectacular. Finishes with lots of grapefruit bitterness and then just vanishes from your mind. More sediment than I would want from this style if I want to be a cosmetic bitch about it. A very uninteresting IPA albeit totally drinkable. But if you like a good bitter after taste this gets that done for you. I’ll end up with an overpriced mini keg this summer, I just know it. It’s just so plain - yea, I’ve had alot of West coast IPA’s and I like them all, including this one but why would I spend money on this? This would be one of my last IPA choices. A Rogue failure in my eyes mainly because it is so damn boring. Just buy anything else.

joergen (22879) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle at Nya Tröls, Malmö. Clear amber coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of caramel, bread, grass, hops and pine needles. Fruity flavour of grass and hops with notes of pine needles. Dry hoppy finish.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - MAY 31, 2009
Very fruity for the style. Lots of tropical fruits that got a bit too cloying by the end of the pint. Still a very drinkable beer with good hopping though. Missing that extra omph to make it something special

BVery (7602) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2009
TAP: yellow/gold, clear pour. Not a huge nose, more soapy than spice/floral. Taste is pretty good, but not as well balanced as some of the better IPAs (Two Hearted, etc.).

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
In short: A extra-refreshing IPA with a focus on tropical fruits flavour. Superior thirst quencher.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh one month after purchase
The look: Cloudy glowing orange topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is very fruity and a little cheesy. The flavour is really focussed on refreshing fruits (tropical fruits-ish). I got pineapples, lots of grapefruits, oranges and such. Rather yeasty for the style and with a little cheese undertone. A little doughy. The malt backbone provides a neutral white cake/bready backbone with a 2/3 honey 1/3 caramel sweetness. Light-medium bitterness with an orange peels flavour. This beer is both nourishing and superbly refreshing. A hot summer day treat. What a funny name though. Naming a product after its consumption by-product is funny. I wish there was a brand of hot chilli called shitstain.

smcolw (567) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 21, 2009
Woah, 4/5 head on the initial pour. Leaves lumpy lace in concentric circles on the glass. Quite rocky. Very cloudy, dark gold color. Piney, grapefruit hop aroma. Is it the name, or do I detect a touch of uric acid? Nah, but there is something unusual--I’ll describe it as Grapefruit rind. Lip-smackingly bitter. The aftertaste is like licking a hop-sickle. Thinner than the taste would suggest, which it means it’s a typical IPA body. Low carbonation. Falls on the extreme side of IPA’s.
