Initial smell is that of an old book....Strange thats not the first time Ive used that for an IPA. Maybe a slight chemical or phenol smell. Very nice coppery color, big ass two finger head. Pretty nice floral bitter taste, with some spice thrown in. The Amarillo hops get me every time...I should know by now to expect the old book and soap smell. Pretty honest IPA.....not bad.

scent is more of a pilsner than an ipa. taste is bitter and hoppy. tastes similar to the brutal bitter. very nice beer.

bozoNZ (723) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 5, 2009
Faint cloudy to the golden - light laced head. Very light aroma considering the assalt that follows. Iím an Amarillo sucker so while I love the almost insane orange pith flavour and dirty cracked pepper bitterness I just feel that itís a bit out of whack. Bounces around like a seismograph on a pogo stick.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of resin, spice, caramel. Tastes bitter and peppery with a spicy finish.

Beerman6686 (4873) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
This poured an amber yellow color with a white head. Aroma was bitter hops, and some malts. Flavor was bitter but not in a good way. Strange off bittness almost sour.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium to large white head. Candied citrus and pineapple with some spiciness and a bit of soap. Thin body, slightly sweet, a little more soapiness. Long bitter finish with a little sugar.

Tap at MacGloughlinís in Kyoto. Bright, frosty-looking yellow--really looks like snow floating in p... Great head too. Super hoppy, as expected, yet also a very smooth body and rich, fresh maltiness. Very nice and easy to drink lots of.

Merrill (78) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2009
On tap at Maple Tree Inn. Strong lace on a cloudy yellowbeer. Aroma is light citrus, deceptively light for the hop monster underneath. Mountains of sharp hops - another good balancing act with strong bittering and a nice upfrontfloral twang. Too lightin themalt for my taste, but Iknow plenty of people who will like this one!

I got this not just because of the name, which is great, and very unappealing, but I had never had an IPA from Rogue, so I said what the hell. And it was great!! It poured an orange-amber with a medium white head. Itís aroma had lots of pine, and some citrus notes. This reminded me a lot of Two Hearted. In fact, if I didnít know any better, I would think it was. Seriously, it was that good. anywho, great second offering from Rogue. I will definitely be buying more from them. Cheers!

Bottle from CelticBrew, at our last tasting. Faintly turbid gold with a big, rocky, white head and some adherent thick lace. A base of honey ushers in the predictable pine and citrus hops in large doses. Medium body and carbonation, resinous palate, quite dry. Huge amounts of bitterness leave me looking for a little better balance.
