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.

A little hazy. Golden with a big, fluffy white head. Good head retention.

Dank. Big hop aroma with lots of grass and earthiness. Backed up by tons of citrus. Very good.

Slightly sweet malt with a big bitterness. Great, complex hop flavour. Dank hop oil and citrussy grapefruit. Really good.

Medium body with moderately-high carbonation.

A ton of flavour makes this a really enjoyable beer. Lots of fun.

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!

Had on-tap at Barleycorn Asheville. Served in a snifter.

A- Pours a dark amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of sheer surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves a thin jagged ring behind.

S- Earthy, herbal hop aroma with some cereal grain sweetness behind it. Slightly musty.

T- The hops hit you with some juicy citrus but then morph toward a more grassy finish and a considerable amount of bitterness. Actually the bitterness sinks in more and more with every sip but it's complementary to the rest of the flavors especial with the sturdy malt backbone.

M- Sharp and oily from the hops. Medium carbonation and a fullish body.

O- Haven't had a Rogue beer in a while but this one's quite good I must say.

A - Hazy pale orange body with nice dense off-white head. Good retention and lacing

S - Very nice light fresh citrus hops

T - Big citrus hops, pine and spicy. Malts are subtle and earthy.

M - Medium/light body with moderate carbonation. Very slick and refreshing.

O - What a great beer. Maybe it's a bit one dimensional, but I like the hoppiness it brings. I'm not normally a big fan of Rogue but this I will be picking up again. It's very fresh and drinkable.
