2.81/5 rDev -28.9%
Bright orange body, plenty of haze, topped by four fingers of billowing white foa. Dense lacing.
Big inviting mixed aroma. Apricots, pine, grapefruit and I'm not sure what else.
The malt doesn't really get a foothold, and there is an overriding piney hop taste from beginning to end that makes this surprisingly one dimensional considering the aroma and variety of ingredients. Slightly unpleasantly astringent aftertaste.
Ok medium mouthfeel.
I am not a Rogue brasher by any means, I'm a big fan of many of their beers, but this is a miss for me.

This pours a bright and clear 24K gold with a 2 finger head of foam that does well with the lacing.
It has a good citrus and piney nose that smells like this bottle is really fresh; I assume that as Rogue does not believe in any sort of dating system for their bottles. For shame.
I get citrus grapefruit up front, some pine and grass following, and a heaping helping of caramel malt right before the finish. I find the overall tasting experience a bit on the rough side despite an attempt at some balance.
Medium bodied, same for carbonation, the mouthfeel seems harsh?
I'm not a fan of this IPA. 1 bottle and done.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.
Heavy orange color, clear with now fog. White/slightly off white head.
Citrus in the nose, but very little in the taste. I am disappointed with the amount of citrus and hops in the taste of this. Very smooth malt with a light mouthfeel making this easy to drink, but does not have the amount of bitterness, citrus or hops that I was hoping would make this beer stand out.
Would like to try this on draft, but this one is just not for me.
