(bottle) cloudy amber colour with tall, white head; aroma of lychee and bit of citrus; balanced flavour with strong, long bitter finish BeerNeedy (126) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - DEC 30, 2009
This IPA from Rogue is a bit cloudy, but it is a mellow and earthy great tasting IPA that has good mouth feel and finish. I’d drink it more often but it’s only seasonally available. Bockyhorsey (2627) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bomber. How ironic in Wis. in the winter and find this one. Good grapefruit aroma on the nose. Copper body with white head and some lace. Citrus flavor thought beer and cool and refreshing on the palate. Make me want to go play in the smow.

650 bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a large, clingy white head that slowly fades. Taste is of hops, pine, grapefruit and malt. Nice bitter and mildly sweet lingering finish. Similar aroma. Nice creamy/oily body. A nice beer to sip. Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2009
This has the most glorious smell I have ever gotten from an IPA- huge flowers and citrus that just overtakes your whole face. The head is also gigantic and fluffy. Lasts long. The flavor is a strong hop sting at first, but it quickly mellows into a malty smoothness and disappears. It’s no Two-Hearted, but it’s certainly up there for me. Bottle at Stop and Shop next to Titanic in Miami. alagnak (468) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle from Secret Santa. A little apprehensive, since I’ve never really enjoyed anything from Rogue. Nose is pleasantly floral and a little resiny. Taste is a burst of floral hops then a silky light caramel/brown sugar malt, then a wallop of grapefruity amarillo to finish. Pretty well-done beer that I really enjoyed. Thanks, Santa. paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 28, 2009
Pours a hazy golden color. Thick foamy lasting white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Hoppy citrus aromas. Lots of floral hints. Some coriander. Some beginnings of citrus on the first sip then a blast of hoppy bitterness. There is enough balance here to keep most interested and enough hops to satisfy the hopheads. Overall a very good beer for those who love the bitter. Stew41 (2066) - Phuket, THAILAND - DEC 28, 2009
Very nice beer but like most from Rogue has a ’sameness’ about it (albeit the house style is very good). Nose shows sweet malts but the palate is more about reasonably agressive hop character. That said the malts didn’t ever let up. Good beer, a touch thick structure-wise, and won’t really further the cause of new world IPA.
