22oz bottle split into taster glassware
Notes taken on 06/29/2014

A: Darker caramel amber body with some decent clarity to it. Big heady tan froth billows up out of the glass with enduring hang time. Lots of sticky lace scatters across the glass after each sip.

S: Bright lemony pine hops in the nose with some spice and a touch of herbals underneath. There is a dash of ephemeral malt bread to it but this one is mostly hops and fairly unique or experimental if you will. Lemony spice and herbs. Pretty nice nose and better than I was expecting from Rogue.

T: Taste is a touch more floral than the nose with a big lemony-lime citrus flavor presence. I get some spice and earthy herbals rounding out those hop flavors and there is just a whisper of malt sweetness to the brew. Good and resinous with a nice bitter bite on it and the alcohol completely masked throughout. This is very nice and all about those homegrown experimental hops. Better than most all the other Rogue beers I have had.

M: The mouth feel stays light on the palate with a nice creamy smooth texture. Has a peppery bitterness midway that lingers for a bit. All in all a nice clean balance here.

D: Very drinkable with a nice hoppy punch and some new and exciting flavors to try out from Rogue for once. Definitely exceeded my expectations. Hats off to the farmers.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass; no bottle dating, but was released very recently. Pours moderately cloudy bright golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, grapefruit, orange rind, light mango, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with bright citrus hop and light-moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange rind, light mango, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, pineapple, grapefruit, lemon zest, orange rind, light mango, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and complexity of bright citrus hop and moderate malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, fairly sticky, and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this a very nice DIPA. All around good balance and complexity of bright hops and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.

Appearance: Cloudy caramel. Lots of froth for head.
Smell: Floral, honey, biscuit, lemon, and pine.
Taste: Just about the same as smell with some pepper. Lots of floral.

This brew was extremely good. Though I love hops, it didn't have an intense punch that I was expecting. Yet, it was a more mellow experience, but incredible. It does have a really great bite towards the end. It's an IPA that I could drink every single meal, give or take the meal. I loved it.

Suprisingly nice hoppy beer. Bought at a local shop here in Spain, I expected a malt-fest but it was perfectly drinkable. Would certainly buy again.
