Tap at the brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, and wildcard. Very unique Rogue goblet. Clean appearance with an orange hue. Head disappeared quickly and wasn?t all that full in the first place. Citrus and tropical fruit in the nose with some bitterness. Mouthfeel is oily and resiny. Plenty of hops with a smooth citrus taste. Easy to drink and gets better as consumption continues. Rogue delivers an enjoyable although slightly straightforward double IPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Large Format - Thick white head with large bubbles. Cloudy orange color with what looks like suspended particles in the beer. Very thick beer if that makes sense. Taste has a good amount of hop bitterness, little to no malt flavor which is good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pours clear golden with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, butterscotch, light sweet fruits, some alcohol. Taste is strong sweet malts, some light fruitiness again, robust vegetal bitterness, quite some booze. Oily mouthfeel, full body, light carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours slightly hazy to cloudy pale amber with one fingers of rocky white head, good retention and minimal lacing. (3/5) Nose is caramel malt, pithy citrus, pine resin, mild floral. (7/10) Taste is moderate sweet, moderately strong bitter. (6/10) Medium body, moderate to low carbonation, slightly boozy finish. (4/5)
Nothing too thrilling - a fairly standard heavy-handed, malt-forward DIPA. Doesn’t excite me, doesn’t turn me off. Damned with faint praise? Maybe - but that’s about what it deserves. (12/20)

Yeah, I'm a fan boy, but this just ticks all boxes, it flavoursome as well as sensuous on all other accounts. So many different scents, and tingles and yeah. Just, yeah. Oh baby.

Bottle (nice) - dark gold with slim white head. Aroma of citrus hops, pine, honey maybe. Excellent taste - citrus hops mainly, with touch of floral, nicely dry, good malt backbone. Medium to full bodied, softly carbonated. Nice long bitter finish, touch of late warming alcohol. An excellent DIPA.
