22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. These just came in though, so I am confident that it's fresh as can be. The new IPA creation from Rogue, let's see how it goes.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a beautiful bright burnt sienna orange colored body with plenty of sediment visible in the glass and the bottle itself. Two and a half fingers of frothy beige head. Scattered lacing. Looks very nice.
S - Smell is bright and fresh, but average smelling at best for the genre. Mango, grapefruit, lemon, pine, lightly floral, some soapiness / creaminess, and some earthy bready malt presence.
T - Taste is much of the same. Herbal / grassy / floral. Earthy & piney. Grapefruit, mango, pine, lemon, some earthy tea leaf malt sweetness / breadiness. A very nicely balanced and flavorful IPA. Good bitterness.
M - Smooth and creamy. Fluffy and light-bodied with very nice carbonation. Lightly sticky / resinous on the palate, but it is mostly a clean finish.
Overall, a very nice IPA from Rogue, possibly one of the best I've had from them yet. Very fresh and juicy at this point, with a classic spot on flavor profile. This rivals some of the other more hyped DIPA's I have had this year. Recommended.

Pours orange with a fading large head.
Nose shows copious amounts of sweet clean malt, pine and resin. Quite nice in terms of the malt character.
Very similar flavours, very malty but still quite clean. Gets piny along with some resinous hops followed by a sharp, abrasive bitterness.
Could use some more carbonation.
