Poured into IPA glass; golden-orange, the color of honey with a huge fluffy dense white head that fades very slowly, leaving lots of chunky lacing. Looks awesome.
Smells of pine, sweet grain that gets almost potatoey as it warms, grapefruit. There really is something odd and starchy to the smell. Not much dimension to the hop profile for having 7 hop varieties. Then again, I've never heard of any of these varieties of hops, grown by Rogue themselves...I'd much rather have a 7-hop IPA made from the newer NZ/AUS varieties. But then again, that's textbook Rogue...over-the-top marketing and bravado with little substance behind it.
Taste is relatively one-dimensional, although there are some surprising notes. It starts with solid pine and sweet malt, but then smooths and thins out into some sweeter grapefruit and slight tropical notes that do have a unique tang to them. Nothing mind-blowing though.
Mouthfeel is standard and appropriate.
Overall, I would like more unique flavors from a 7 hop IPA made from all new proprietary varieties. Rogue has a bad habit of touting their beers as unconventional and groundbreaking but in reality they're usually curious mediocrities at best.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker. I go somewhat aggressive on the pour and get about an inch of a frothy and somewhat short-lived but also quite sticky head of a pale tan color. The beer is a quite hazy, pale yellowish-amber with light carbonation.

I get a whiff of something a little different on each sniff. There's definitely some citrus and herbal hops coming through, but also some caramelly malt. The flavor is as complex as the aroma, with piney, citrus and light floral notes complementing a smooth but flavorful caramel malt base. A good hop bite on the finish lingers, but not overly long. This hop bite includes a good deal of some perceived fruity sweetness, or rather a tea-like quality, in addition to the expected citrus and pine. A hint of vegetal flavor somewhat like asparagus presents itself as well. The mouthfeel is creamy with a moderate body.

This is a very well-crafted and balanced brew that should appeal to the average pale ale drinker and might even be worthy of the hopeful hopheads out there. The hops are flavorful and complementary rather than overbearing and the overall flavor is rather unique. This might be my favorite example of this style.

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
