Had this at their taproom in Newport, Oregon. Outstanding. Was never a huge fan of their Dead Guy Ale which I can find at my local grocer in the Midwest, but this, and many others they had on tap, were very very good.

Light and clear, chestnut in color. The smell is hoppy, with pine, earth, distant citrus, and pepper. Underneath, there is breadcrumb malt. Semi dry. Medium in body. Nice.

Just how I like my IPAs, enough malt to balance the hops. Very impressive for a "home grown" brew.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Slightly hoppy aroma. Malty flavor, some hops, reminds me of barleywine. Sub par IPA and not surprising considering the source.

First of all, the ABV on this beer is 7.77% according to the bottle from which I drank it. That being said this is one of the best IPAs I've ever had. Perhaps I'm biased because I love rogue beers, but this was a perfect blend. When I say perfect blend I'm referring to the balance of malts, hops, and carbonation. A lot of the time IPAs are overly carbonated and that makes them somewhat hard to drink. In this case, this one was smooth and tasty. I believe it's better than an okay beer. I would go as far as to say it's fantastic. I would and most definitely will have it again.

Hazed amber orange, one finger of white head with a little lace. Smell is quite hoppy, lots of grapefruit and orange, malty backbone with a light sweetness and just a bit of caramel. Taste is a mix of grapefruit, orange and sweet malt, moderate hop bitterness with nice hop flavour, well balanced overall. Lightly carbonated, medium-full body. Decent, not outstanding but enjoyable and worth coming back to.

Good, but not anywhere near great. One trick pony on the dry hops, honey flavor with little else to offer.

22 oz poured into tulip glass
A Copper color with tan head - great lacing remaining in glass
S Subdued citrus and pine
T - F Medium body - not overly carbonated. Taste as the nose suggests citrus and piney residue on the palate - not overly bitter and well balanced all of the hops blend together in a master stroke of brewing
O A magnificent offering by Rogue

22oz bottle poured into snifter.
A: pours a dull golden color body, brilliant white foam head, some sticky spotty lacing, some carbonation
S: citrus, fresh orange, grapefruit
M: medium body with some resin on the tongue
T: grapefruit rind, orange, pine resin, slight cracker
O: good brew, hops are strong but the bitterness is not overdone

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving lots of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of piney hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste starts out with some initial flavors of citrus, but piney hops quickly takeover and linger through the finish. There is a moderate to high amount of associated bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very crisp on the palate with a moderate amount vow carbonation.
O:This beer is very bitter and piney, but doesn't have any resin so if you can get past the bitterness it isn't too difficult to drink.

Appearance: dark orange in color with a 1/2" head that fell quickly. Some spotty lace paints the glass.

Smell: floral and pine hop bitterness comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, pine, grapefruit, lemon zest, and some earthy tones show up late. There is strong bitterness here but seems well balanced.

Mouthfeel: crisp at the start, less crisp and dry at the finish.

Overall: definitely a bold IPA with loads of flavors. Alcohol is well hidden too.

Hazy orange pour with clingy white foam - this one’s a looker! Despite the name, aroma is bread and caramel with only subdued floral notes. Flavors are similar - malty with not so much bitterness, but tangy citrus in the middle. Long, enjoyable finish/aftertaste.

I prefer double IPAs but this is a hell of an IPA. I really enjoy this. As always Rogue has outdone themselves again.

Bottle: Poured a clear orangey color ale with large white foamy head with excellent carbonation and some good lacing. Aroma of fruity hops with some nice floral note and some light citrus undertone sis extremely pleasant. Taste is also dominated by floral fruity hops with some light citrus notes. Some residual sugar and a limited amount of bitterness. Body is above average with good carbonation. A very nice IPA with lots of focus on fruity hoppy notes – probably one of the best Rogue product from the last 5 years.

7 Hop IPA, a 'Rogue Farms' offering (meaning all ingredients are grown by the brewery on their own land), certainly looks like a farmhouse offering - that is to say, very murky and very substantial. Despite a honeycomb golden colour this thing looks thick as a stout and has the solid, ample head to match this most hearty complexion.

Hops come in many flavours: citrus fruits, tropical fruits, pine, grass, green tea, flowers, etc. Some people have preferences but, generally speaking, hop variety doesn't dictate purchasing choices. In any case, this recipe uses seven different kinds so, safe to say, whatever your favourite feature, this has probably got it.

Indeed, the aroma is a diverse blend of pungent herbals, candied citrus fruits, and tree resins. The palate offers an equally vast array that spans pine needles, matcha powder, cooked lemon and a spicy, almost vegetal bitterness. It's got the air of a blooming meadow or spring orchard and has a zesty kick, something accentuated by the alcohol.

But it also has enough malt to evoke thoughts of a bakery; all that hoppiness doesn't stand in the way of wholesome bready, biscuity, and toffee notes. The finish is so dry as to have a texture reminiscent of plain crackers. This speeds up the time between sips as one wants to replenish those citrus and floral sensations soon as possible.

Rogue doesn't do a whole lot of wrong if you ask me. In fact, I'd rank them as one the safest-bet breweries out there. 7 Hop IPA is a good example of that - it's doubtful to really 'wow' you but it does provide the characterful and uncompromising hoppiness one asks of the style without trading away approachability. For the reasonable $6.95/bomber I paid for it I see no wrong.

bomber into small snifter glass. production date: december 23, 2014. enjoyed on march 5, 2015

a: a beautifully vibrant, glowing, 95% transparent orange. one finger of bone-coloured head

s: melon, pine, grapefruit rind, ripe oranges, caramel/toffee, and light floral aromas. maybe a pinch of alcohol. smells like a standard, non-tropical c-hop IPA which i love

t: follows the nose. cantaloupe, caramel, biscuit, grapefruit, and pine up front. mid-palate consists of bready caramel malts and lesser ripe orange notes. closes with a medium-ish herbal, earthy, resinous hop bitterness, and a slight alcohol presence

m: medium, creamy, oily body with moderate carbonation

o: a damn good (imperial?) IPA, full of hop flavour but still balanced
