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.
