ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - MAR 28, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a very light golden color with a thin white foam head that leaves a few rings of lace. Aroma has a big hit of grapefruit and piney hops in the nose with a decent amount of sweet malt in the background. Taste is slightly sweet up front, some caramel, cream, and cracker. Hops make thier push through the middle. Finish is dry and crisp with some resin and hints of pineapple, mangos, and oranges. There is also some pine bitterness on the finish as well. Mouthfeel is pretty full, smooth, with crisp carbonation.

Holy crap, this is a tasty beverage. It’s not overly hopped like many IPAs today, and has a very complex flavor from all the grains. Freakin delicious. andrepintado (3613) - Porto, PORTUGAL - MAR 27, 2013
bottle thanks to iantbonewilson. Dark gold, orange, copper color. Carbonation is medium but is nice! High bitterness. Very balanced aroma: hops all around, herby and light fruit. jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Bottled. Pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Big hoppy aroma, earthy, grapefruit. Very resinous, grapefruit flavored IPA in its most classic form. Finishes a little oily and a touch astringent. Terrific IPA. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a dark gold with a lasting white head. The nose is a potent mix of tropical fruit, citrus, and a hint of malt sweetness. Full bodied and smooth on the tongue, this brew blasts your tongue with hops. Tons of grapefruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruit notes all bound together with a great malt backbone. A nice, long finish. This brew is outstanding.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear deep golden color with 2 fingers of creamy white head. Aroma is all citrus and tropical fruits, resiny, with slight caramel note. Taste is amazing! Lemon, orange, grapefruit, pineapple, and mango. dswillieus (3) - - MAR 24, 2013 does not count
Aroma swells of grapefruit, slight wet fur aroma reminds me of fido in the rain, but may be the glass. Appearance a nice golden color. Tastes fruity and floral citrus on the buds and carbonation cleanses the palate. Overall beautiful beer, though definitely not the Brown Shugga substitute I was expecting.

Pours a deep, golden color with a finger sized head that leaves good lacing. Had aromas of grapefruit, pineapple, and citrusy notes. Was slightly sweet on the tongue, and wasn’t overly bitter. Had a bittersweet grapefruit aftertaste. Pretty light bodied and easy to drink. gorditoabd (636) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Bottle from Bev4Less. Pours a lovely shiny orange with a nice, if ephimeral, lacy white foam head. Aroma is all of high AA hops... smells like it got attacked by the pound of Columbus living in my freezer! Malts are only slightly more present in the taste than in the nose (where they were non-existent), and only at the end of the palate. Otherwise, there are ample hop flavors: resin in the smell and early palate, with passion fruits and mango coming through strongly in the middle and late palate. Nice stuff. Wasn’t a fan when smelling it, but man did it get better in the taste. rolltideroll (20) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Poor’s a nice copper color with a half inch head. Nice hoppy aroma! Big flavor and nice mouth feel. Bitterness lingers a little too long for my liking, but other than that this is a great beer!
