Slammed from the bottle. Classy. Lots of grass and citrus in the aroma. Lemon, pine and grass flavor with some caramel in the finish. Could be rougher. Price was pretty rough.

Figured two years aught to do it for this one. Dont know how its considered a double IPA at only 60 IBUs but OK anyway. Cap popped off and when I turned to get my glass I found a volcano spewing from the bottle. After I spent some time cleaning up the ensueing mess I had a beer to pour. Pours cloudy golden brown with a reasonable head. Mostly sweet malt in the aroma reminding me of an aged barleywine. Flavor is more reminiscent of a barleywine as well, some hops left but stale. Malt profile rules at this point more of an american strong than a DIPA. Sweetneess if the aroma. I like it although at this point the stale hops seem to interfere with some of the malt character. Some say this is past its prime where I say its in a weird middle ground where the hops have faded but a beautiful malt profile is starting to show through. Another year maybe two might bring it out more. Past its prime if you were actually expecting hops, but even 6 months, heck you could argue 6 days would be past its prime for that. Once again this is not a DIPA, I agree with Funknmilla, at this point the remaining hops take away from this beer. From previous reviews I was expecting a disaster. Its far from one but maybe because I only paid 11 bucks for my bottle. Very drinkable.

Ceramic Bottle from December 2006..pours a cloudy dark amber with orange highlights..beige head with excellent lacing...mild citrus aroma + malts...has undertones of earth-----sharp hop flavors almost ruin the malts that are there for their protection and mine---as my wounded taste buds continue on, I am only to be struck again by the pursuing hops---the malts try to catch up, but by the time they arrive, its too late---Im already consumed by bitter finish and the gang of hops---as I regain consciousness, Im aware that all the blows delivered were not as bad as I expected and it all became mellow in the end---10% tasted like a mere 7%---till we meet again Rogue.........

Crushed with Jakebra. Nothing incredible here. Very citrusy nose with some hop presence. Flavor is aight, but the finish goes from bitter, to citrus, to bitter, to citrus, to dishsoap. Still, it was fun to drink either way.

Bottle shared at Trappeze. Pours nice amber orange with thin head. Aroma of sweet malt and citrus hops, a little weak. Taste is a little more malt than hop. Light bitterness in the finish. Mouth is sticky and full.

I agree with others that this beer is beyond its peak. If you’re still holding one, drink it now!<P> The beer poured a reasonably clear orange with a respectable head that dissipated to a nice thin coating across the beer. Aroma was faint (beyond its peak, remember?) but hinted at malt and a bit of citrusy hops. The taste was better with a commanding presence of tangerine citrus and a bit of pine resin, balanced amazingly well by a rich malt backbone of sweet caramel and toasty/biscuit flavor. The bitterness is still there and offsets the malt sweetness very well.<P> All in all, this is a great double IPA. I like others better (Ruination comes to mind), but this is still quite nice. Overpriced, but nice.

Pricey ceramic 750 I got at Chevy Chase Wine and Liquor over a year ago. Pours orange with a 1 finger tan head. Nose is sweet with a lot of citrus. Taste is rich and sweet with a lot of caramel. Overall a tasty brew, didn’t realize it was a dipa, and doesn’t taste like one now either.

Pours a cloudy orange with some red highlights. Off white head. Nice sweet malt balances well against the citrus hops, mainly grapefruit. I probably shouldn’t have waited so long to try this, so the hops would have been better. Way too expensive for the quality of beer though.

Pours dark golden with a thick white head that is very sticky. Strong hop aroma, it almost stings the nostrils. Very strong hop flavor up front that lingers in the aftertaste. More of a bitter hop flavor than aroma hop. Good balance in the aftertaste that ends up tatsing like a very clean refreshing beer while still packing a punch at 10%. Does not age well, this beer was best when first brewed.
