75 cl bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a minimal head. Aroma is very hoppy and fresh with exotic fruits, passion fruit, resin and pine needles, some grass and malts also. Flavor is somewhat sweet with caramel malts, exotic fruits, resinous hops, some goose berries and grass. Very refreshing, though a bit sweet. Very good.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to a deep golden /amber color. The aroma was strong with grapefruit / citrus smell. The taste was medium body and a clean finish for a 10 abv double. Overall a good DIPA.

Big bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy and floral and lightly piney hops plus a nice caramel and pale maltiness. Flavor a good balance of everything with the strong hops standing out. Average to smooth texture. A good beer.

750mL from SoonerChamps, this is a big boy beer in a big boy bottle, nice orange hue from it, medium 3 finger head, nose is big amounts of hop but there definitely is a strong malt backbone, more than I’d like but its a balanced IIPA. Good local stuff.

Bomber to snifter. Big, hoppy nose; gorgeous pour. Terrific balance. Nice hop profile. Easy to drink. A bit pricey, but worth it. Well done, Roughtail.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Jimmy. Shared with four others who had similar, to worse, opinions of this bottle. Pours a merky deep, dark orange to almost brown with light, retaining head tan head. Aroma is more malt forward and slightly caramel sweet than anything resembling a fresh DIPA. Taste is again much more malt forward with very little citrus, pine or any other distinguishing characteristics of a good and fresh DIPA. This had some strange spices going on too that seemed intentional but not "good". Overall, this was possibly a bad bottle but it was shipped a week after bottling in a styro containing only 3 days in transit. Something more going on with this beer.

Pours cloudy almost florescent orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, mango, pine and slight caramel. Taste is the same as aroma with a nice balance between bitter and sweet. I wasn’t expecting much from an $8 bomber. What a nice surprise

Was very excited to try this IIPA from this new brewery in OKC. This is my first Rough Tail brew and if this is an indication of where they're headed it is very exciting for OK craft beer! Nice aroma of citrus, grapefruit mainly and some pine. Great mouthfeel. For 10% you don't taste the alcohol at all, easy drinking beer. Taste is mainly grapefruit with some resinous pine as well. The malt balances this beer well. Recommend trying this if you can get your hands on it.

Bottle thanks to Matt. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Great lacing. Nose and taste of papaya, mango, citrus, sugared pink grapefruit, caramel malt, pine, dank hops and resin/sap. Balance is incredible. One of the better IIPAs I’ve had in some time.
