An ok aroma and flavor that is very reminiscient of fresh hops but the body and depth of this leaves a little something to be desired. Grassy, herbal aromas. Earthy, slightly funky fresh hop flavors. A little caramel malt working in the background but it needs to be turned way up to give this a little more character.

22. Pours a clear medium amber with a few nucleation columns and a thin but dense layer of tan foam. Attractive, but not a cover girl. Mild, earthy hop nose, kind of a tangy peach thing but somewhat indistinct, and also possessed of piney overtones. Crisp medium body, firm carb very pleasantly integrated. Caramel, dark crackers, earth, and piney tingling hop on the mid-palate. Mild, slightly resiny finish. Very, very understated for a fresh hop ale. I dont know much about these hop varietals, but maybe theyre always restrained.

UPDATED: JAN 18, 2010 Not the extreme hop experience I was expecting, but a very balanced pale ale nonetheless. Cloudy orange with an initially frothy head. Typical floral and citrus notes, modestly hoppy, and especially light and dry with a champagne-like effervescence. Its tasty, but, in my opinion, more suited for an eight dollar six-pack than a five dollar bottle.

Clear amber with a white head. Really not much to smell here, faint hops and neutral malts. Medium body. Nice floral and spicy hop flavors with sweet caramel malts. Mildly bitter finish.

As fantastic IPA as Ive had the pleasure of experiencing. Sweet nose with wafts of floral hoppiness and a light biscuity note. Strong caramel malt character with with light a subtle offering of great citrus, pine, and resin that fit together like a latex glove. Fresh hops are wonderfully showcased without being overtly abusive to the palate. Creamy mouthfeel and a solid earthy dry finish. Smooth. rich and complex - A masterpiece brew.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2009 Poured amber with a medium white head. Aroma is mostly malty with the hops being earthy and floral. Flavor is largely biscuity malt, with earthy and pine hops. The hop presence was really subdued for an IPA.

bomber - dark copper, clear with foamy off-white head; some floral and fruity hop notes, but pretty mild; thin texture; fresh, crisp and lemony; a little earthy quality too; nice malty, dry finish; a solid brew and nothing really that jumps out; like w/ Sierra Nevada, i really dig the concept and praise the efforts

Bottle: An amber color veer with a light head. The nose is hoppy; a little grassy and herbal with a full bodied caramel malt body. The flavor is lightly bitter, but the fresh hops just dont impart enough bitterness to balance the malts. Good and fresh tasting and not too much of the usual rogue character gets churned up. Good ipa from rogue!

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle... Poured a deep amber with a thick beige head. Aroma of mostly malts and a metallic character. Wheres the fresh hops? I think I bought a spoiled bottle. Not only did this not taste like a fresh hop ale, but it tasted like a bad IPA all together. Unbalanced, lack of satisfying hop flavors and overly malt driving with a musty, yeast flavor.

Draught sample at Portland Pub. My main note is "mild at best". Just seemed a little flat on the hop flavours; not just the bitterness but also the citrus and/or pine qualities that really give it character. Pleasant enough just nothing top tier.
