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.
