Bottle - Bottled 9/2/08 - I was dying to try this, and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. Pours a lighter than expected gold amber color. Head is fluffy while it lasts. Aroma is grapefruit all over the place. Palate is just how I like it. Crisp, fresh with nice piney, resiny hop goodness. My first RR IPA. Up next, Pliny the Elder...

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Props to cloudskipper for sending this my way: This is one of the best IPAs I have ever had. I liked it better than Pliny for its character and drinkability. Very crisp citrus character with a pine underlay. Bitterness stings the tongue and then soothes it with a nice, round finish. A bit grassy, and malt-anemic as you’d expect from a West Coast IPA but I absolutely loved it.

Smooth and fresh. This beer is not as bold as the Pliny, but still very solid. Pine, citrus and hops came out of this bad boy. This beer is much more dry compared to the Pliny, drank this one right after the Pliny. Great overall beer.

xpimptastikx (103) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Pours a clear golden with minimal off with head. Smells bitter, piney, and with a hint of citrus. Tastes less bitter than the smell, but still a nice bite. Feels good in the mouth, very smooth. Leaves a nice lasting bitterness.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle. Pretty orange copper with a small white head that fades to a thin film. Light citrus and pine aroma. Grapefruit, orange, and piney hops with solid but not overwhelming bitterness. Malt maintains a presence in the background. Nicely carbonated but perhaps a touch thin. Great lingering finish. Almost delicate for a West Coast IPA. Very good stuff.

nbutler11 (1267) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2008
Bottle courtesy of the notorious ajm. Pours a dark golden shade with a frim white head. Smells of mild hops that build in character on the palate. Heavy with salt -- almost like bacon grease. Tasty and distinct.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Poured a nice amber color. There was a pleasing hop aroma. The beer was very hoppy as expected with a little bite from the bitterness that almost reveals itself as an astringency. There was a good malt/hop balance, which I like to see with IPA’s. The hops linger on forever in your mouth, which I think is just awesome. Overall, this was a nice IPA that I would try again.

Skinnyviking (8645) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2008
Draughyt. High white creamy and lasting head. Slightly hazy golden body. Aroma of hops, nothing else. Flavor likewise simple but good hops bitterness with a heavy carbonation and a long lasting bitter aftertaste.

CartersBrewing (1) - Billings, Montana, USA - OCT 18, 2008 does not count
Had on tap at Falling Rick during GABF 08. Tasted very good and had a great hop aroma and flavor, but tasted too close to the Pliny the Elder that was also on tap that night. Expected them to be further apart in hop profile.

Cold bottle from Joey @ Southbay. A bright but not overly fruity aroma, and this continues in the very smooth flavor. While the hops are present, they aren’t at all isolated - a perfect presence here from the foamy head to the very slightly salty finish. Perfect size for a bottle, too.
