Immediately hit with a powerful citrus hops front that melts nicely away into a sweetness and then fades into a nice bitter end.

I love the tangerines of the pineapple and the tangerine.

Great IPA! (200 characters)

This DIPA is special in a lot of ways. Not just that it's from Rogue's Organic Hop Farm which may be a hop chemistry plantation for all to enjoy.
Seven different hops have created an amalgam of tastes.
Tried this at the Portland Rogue Brewpub before a Timbers game.
With each quaff you could taste something different.
What a brew!
Your Penalty Kicks will hit the net every time when you Finish with one of these DIPAs.
So good I had to get my local Apothecary to get it on tap here in Pennsylvania.
It rocks with seven hops and who knows what they really are-- Rogue lists them as:
(Liberty, Newport, Revolution, Rebel, Independent, Freedom & Alluvial),
I'm going with "Revolution" as the main culprit because the organic farm is paying off for Rogue! (753 characters)

Nice orange/yellow pour, with a medium body and a thick vanilla colored head leaving a trail on the glass. Looks somewhat hazy, but there is a nice mango, grapefruit, piney aroma and taste that the bitterness complements very well. Would definitely recommend and seek again. (274 characters)

Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass out of a 22 oz bottle purchased at one of the USAG Stuttgart Shopette's in Germany.

APPEARANCE – Hazy bright orange in color w/ a thick tan head that produces artful sticky lacing all the way down the glass with each sip.

SMELL – Heavenly strong and spicy hop aromas.

TASTE – Immediately hit with a powerful citrusy hop front that melts nicely away into a sweetness and then fades into a nice bitter end.

MOUTHFEEL – Good full body with mild carbonation.

OVERALL – A rock-solid IPA that I really enjoy and hope to have again - soon!!! (609 characters)

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 (750 characters)

4.5/5  rDev +14.2%

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. (466 characters)

4.43/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: relatively hazy and a color spanning somewhere between straw and a tangerine. Not a whole lot going on as far as effervescence with only a few bubbles here and there congealing around a very fast fading head which leaves hardly anything to glance at in terms of lacing down the glass.
Aroma: DAMN do I love these rogue hops, a very clean pale malt background sets up for the orchestra of all 7 rogues homegrown hops which all compliment each other beautifully. Notes of bright lemony and grapefruit citrus with a complex exuberance I can't put my nose on just think fresh squeezed citrus without any of the abrasiveness.
Taste: tangerines grapefruit the resins in the flavor hops are anything but harsh, at even your average anti hop drinker might enjoy it.
Mouth feel: dare and risk malt offer a clean profile but a big body almost creamy.one of my favorites of the farms line up and one of the best American iPas I've had good job Johnny boy. Drubk X_x (970 characters)

Had a couple of these last night at The Knotted Thistle here in Regina. Surprised to find something of this quality on tap there. Get it while you can!

Dark amber/orange in colour. Solid 1/8 inch head that sticks around a long time and recedes to a ring only after half the pint is gone. Lots of gobs of sticky lacing down the sides.

Aroma grabbed my attention right away. Really looking forward to trying this as it leans forward with big juicy citrus hops balanced off by rich caramel malts.

Taste doesn't let you down. Very hop forward with some balance through the middle, but the malt can't win this battle as the hops win out to a nice citrus bitter finish. Aftertaste keeps going and going and going. Alcohol character is a little strong for my liking.

Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Very satisfying rich feel left in the mouth.

What a pleasure! I'd drink this again anytime. (895 characters)

22 oz. Bomber

Pours a very nice cloudy dark orange color, very nice carbonation, with a very nice thick/creamy one-finger plus off-white head, and leaves alot of sticky lacing behind. The nose is hoppy, slight malt note, citrusy, and some nice pine notes. The taste is very nice, hoppy, slightly malty, very nice citrus/pine notes. Medium body, some nice chewyness for an IPA at this ABV, nice dry/bitter finish. Overall a very tasty brew, would buy again. It's been awhile since have last had a good IPA from Rogue. (517 characters)

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. (521 characters)

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. (265 characters)

Clear orange-golden, nice head that leaves gobs of lace.

Vague pine and citrus smell.

Subtle pine, followed by caramel malt, orange peel, mint, and grapefruit. Delicious.

Slightly resinous, but not overthick, goes down easy.

I was quite impressed by this. A very nice mix of flavors, very thirst-quenching. The best IPA I've had in quite awhile. (349 characters)

I bought several 22 ounce bottles of this at Total Wine. Excellent balance of bitterness, sweetness and delicious alcohol. Color is very attractive. A nice copper golden hue.

Smell is very fresh and citrusy. Fresh is the overriding factor for this beer. Very pleasant on the palate. Not cloying.

Overall, this is an outstanding double IPA. Combined with the fact that everything is grown by Rogue, means I will be buying this until the supply runs dry. (456 characters)

This beer has a unique melon/soapy smell which I liked. Taste was a very good west coast IPA flavor. I wanted the beer to finish a little drier but it was still good. Pleasantly surprised by this beer at a weekly tasting, bought a full glass because I liked it so much. Dont bother trying to clone this beer, Rogue uses BS proprietary hops and grains to hide what they use. (373 characters)

Bomber bought for $6.99 and poured into a shaker pint. No bottling date is a bummer, but it was new to the store, and my store doesn't receive old brews, so I'm fine with that.

Appearance: Slightly hazy orange with a creamy three finger head that stays around. I didn't pour all that aggressively, yet there was still a huge head on it. Rings of lacing. I see no reason at all not to give this beer a 5 for appearance, because it's seriously perfect for the style.

Smell: A lot of hops, but also a lot of malt -- biscuity with candied fruits. A lot of bursting grassy hops in this one with citrus, peach, and the like. There's a bit of a tropical fruit aroma, but nothing in particular. Those seven hop varieties make for a fairly unique smelling IPA. Very fresh aroma, and it makes me want to take a sip really badly.

Taste/feel: Man, that's just a super tasty beer. It's fairly rare that I have myself a malty tasting IPA that's actually more bitter than it is sweet. The grassy flavors with spiciness and bitterness from the hops, burst of peach flavors that add sweetness, a citrus sort of tartness... it has a fantastic, and quite frankly, pretty unique blend of flavors. There's a bit of a bittersweet battle at first, but the finish is more bitter than your average IPA. The feel here is pretty good for the ABV -- about medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Aftertaste has a distinctively malty and "spicy" hop flavor.

Overall, it's comical to me that, while this beer has seven different varieties of hops per tank, Bud Light probably literally has... seven hops per tank. I am incredibly impressed with this beer, feel it's one of the best IPAs I've had, and it's one of Rogue's finest. (1,715 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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. (581 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Pours an opaque deep orange with a large head. Leaves pretty good lacing.

Very sweet fruity hops on the nose, but still has a dry pine lingering in the background. The 7 hops complement each other beautifully on the nose. Really smells amazing.

Taste is another story. Maybe 7 hops is too much, but this IPA doesn't seem to have an identity. Not to say that it's bad. Up front is citrus hops, not a lot of bitterness at all. The pine and bitterness are fighting for attention with the citrus, but losing. Not bad, but with 7 different hops, I suppose a lot of the flavors are overshadowed by some others. As an IPA itself, it tastes good.

Very smooth and full with medium carbonation.

Overall this is a very solid IPA. Very drinkable, but a bit lacking in bitterness for a hophead like myself. I expected more diverse of a hop profile but mostly got one or two flavors. I do recommend trying this because it is different. (926 characters)

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. (219 characters)

Hazy amber-orange pour with a two finger off-white head with great retention and lacing. Big fruity, floral, perfumy nose with hints of tangerine, grapefruit, caramel, and pine. The taste follows suit with a huge floral, perfumy, complex hop profile with hints of tangerine, resiny pine, orange zest, caramel, white pepper, grapefruit, and grass. The mouthfeel is oily with medium carbonation and a wonderfully balanced, slightly mouth-puckering, bitter sweet finish. Overall, this was a hugely drinkable, flavorful, and well balanced West Coast IPA. Being stationed overseas, we don't get the freshest IPA's, so I imagine this would be even better freshly bottled. (670 characters)

A - Mildly opaque orange ice tea body. Great off-white head with outstanding retention and lace.

S - Fresh orange, caramel, light woody hops.

T - Soft malty frame with bright grassy hops. Clean, woody bitter finish.

M - Outstanding drinkability with a soft, light body.

O - Session IPA's be damned, this is what I'm drinking all day. (337 characters)

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, not sure of the bottle date. Pours a bright orange, with a two inch sticky white head that leaves loads of lacing.

Smell is tangerine, pine, mango, and grapefruit.

Taste follows the nose well, but the grapefruit finish is very assertive in a good way.

Body is medium, plenty of carbonation, a little dry, and very drinkable.

Overall this is excellent and the price is nice. (413 characters)

660ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark orange to amber color. Slightly hazy. Forms a big, fluffy and creamy light yellow color forming a lot of soapy and lingering lacings in the glass

S: Sweet, fruity and quite flowery in the nose. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, crystal malts, roasted malts, grapefruit, pine, flowery hops and sweet bread. Classic US-05 yeast profile in the end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of caramel and crystal malts. Quite fruity too with strong notes of orange, grapefruit, pine and sweet bread. Good citrus and grassy hops bitterness in the end. Hops profile is a mix of pine and citrus. Pleasant and intense bitterness in the end. The 8% ABV is quite hidden. Great bittersweet balance

M: Medium molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet and citrus aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Excellent American IPA (861 characters)
