Bottle:   Thanks to Sloth for this one.   Cloudy straw, orangish, big fluffy white head, nice lacing.   Hoppy nose, but not bitter.   A little sweet and citrusy, slightly candied.   Similar on the tongue.   Very smooth.   Nice hop profile without being overly bitter.   Citrusy start to finish, but without the bitterness.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Clean finish.   Really easy drinking IPA.   It could actually stand to have a bit more bitterness, HAHAH.

Une bire ambre, avec une bonne carbonatation et petite effervescence. Au nez, les odeurs dhoublons sont puissantes - ananas, oranges et pamplemousses, ce qui est tres prometteur pour la suite. En bouche, cest tout autant houblonn, avec un petit ct rsineux quon ne trouvait pas au nez. Les saveurs ressenties au nez sont un peu moins prsentes en bouche, d lamertume assez solide en bouche. En bref, une IPA assez classique de ce quon voit de la west coast - bien faite mais en mme temps, pas aussi extraordinaire que sont "hype" le veut.

Tap into a snifter showing a finger of clean white foam and lightly filtered dry orange peel. The nose shows sharp notes of cannabis and tart kiwi with steel tank notes in between. The palate is light bodied and fully carbonated. Flavors of juicy kiwi, pineapple and lighter notes of mango. Moderate hoppy bitterness that balances the fruit flavors and a light zesty spice on the linger. I had this in a bottle before and have to say, having it fresh on tap is completely different.

Very smooth hoppy, non malty flavor. Slightly cloudy blond. Good but I dont get all the hype.

Lunch has a golden frothy pour with honey notes In the aroma with a dusky pine forest thing going on too. Really nice and floral palate. Smooth.

ROGUE (2205) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - JUL 27, 2016
On tap at SLL tasting and 500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow capped with a thick layer of soapy bubbles. Aroma is fresh, and hoppy. Zesty citrus, floral hops, peach skin, grass, and, pine. Smooth vibrant hop flavors over a bed of fresh grain...zesty lemon and grapefruit, juicy fruit, herbs, and flowers . Soft, dry, crisp feel - drinks lighter than the ABV would suggest.

Sampler (8oz pours?) from Appalachian Vintners. Orange copper pour with an off-white head. Terrific nose. Very hoppy. Clean. Sweet fruit and light sweet malts. Taste is of citrus & pine and light sweet malts. Finishes tangy bittersweet, slightly to the sweet side. The blend is very well done. This is very very tasty. 16.2

Very piney, some citrus but not nearly as much as one would expect from a new england IPA, this is more Pacific northwestern. Smells funky, but not skunky, very smooth, crisp mouthfeel, very crushable.
