Bomber bottle from the lcbo. Poured a deep orange brown colour. Great curtains of lacing with nice head retention.

S - potent hop notes, grapefruit, papaya, strong pine notes, dry hay notes, some caramel malt character, really rich fruit notes with a very tropical character. Matched by a nice malt body.

T - rich fruitiness, citrus, rich orange, grapefruit, pineapple, red currents, some caramel undertones, bready malts, all helping to support a nice interplay of some really interesting hop flavours, leading to a drying resiny finish. Bitterness is pronounced but not over the top, slightly bracing but helping to support the fruity citrus and pine, some earthy spicy notes, very pleasant IPA, really rich and while there is a bit of roughness around the edges, there is quite a bit of complexity.

M - good firm body, moderate carbonation, alcohol is well hidden by the flavour and bitterness, to make a fairly typical big IPA feel, moderately slick with some decent resins going on at the end.

Tasty tasty tasty. While not everything rogue does is remarkable, and I think this falls at least a peg short of the best ipas, I cannot fault them for making quite a nice hoppy ipa in this, showing off some varieties that don't get a lot of limelight. Overall, it comes across as tropical, with a nice citrus zing and some very nice earthy undertones, leather, hay, foresty. I think the end result is well worth a try.

Purchased at the LCBO for around $8.00 or so for a 650ml bottle. Served at 6deg C in a draught glass. Wanted something special for my 400th review. This was not it.

A- Opens well and pours a small white head that is gone in seconds. Very dark gold color. Semi filtered

S- Good hops but nothing that special. Smells like citrus, Chinook and the other common varieties of hops. Good malt base.

T- More hype then bite. Not bad but not the hop bomb you would expect. Good malt backbone and a touch too much sugar.

M- Creamy and a touch dry. Ok but not as good as other examples out there.

O- Glad I only bought one. Will not buy again at this price point.

Food Pairing

This pretty good IPA went well with...... BBQ'd hamburgers. No topping, just meat and a toasted bun. Rather tasty and the beer paired well.

Enjoy

Not too hoppy. Smooth with a slight bite at the finish. Decent.

I can't make up my mind as to which of the 7 hops I like the best....Ha, ha!
As if I knew which was which!
Nice beer, the right sized bottle (650ml), the right level of alcohol (8.02%.....let's not forget about that .02!) - and you have the right evening beverage.

Nice amber colour. Nice smack of citrusy hoppyness. Not as bitter as I anticipated with 90 IBUs. Great flavour overall with a light aftertaste that makes me want some more.

Beer is an attractive golden amber. Slightly hazy. Nice off-white head. Not a big aroma. Some citrus hops. A bit of biscuit. Taste is lemoney and citrusy, not much malt. It's surprisingly light. Not sure if this is good or bad. Mouthfeel is also light. Overall, this isn't bad by any means, but somehow seems a bit out of balance. The hops are very bright. This is a tiny bit like a blanche, but a bit heavier and with a bit more bitterness.
