look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick, imposing, fluffy white head that lingers for quite some time and laces deep into the glass.

S: Subtler than average aromas of caramel, cream, biscuit, grass, lemon, sage, peppermint, wintergreen, bitter orange, lime, grass, white pepper, kumquat, and grapefruit pith express themselves on the nose.

T: Malty notes of cream, biscuits, crackers, and caramel dominate the entry, but are soon overpowered by hoppy notes of lemon, lime, kumquat, grapefruit pith, sage, peppermint, grass, bitter orange, radish, wintergreen, and basil. The finish is intensely herbal and bitter, as flavors of basil, radish, grass, peppermint, and sage are accented by subtle hints of lemon, lime, and bitter orange.

M: Medium in body, creamy, and somewhat slick for the style. Carbonation is active, yet still airy and delicate. This is very easy to drink for the style.

O: A recurring theme of my reviews of Rogue products lately has been that Rogue still knows how to innovate and make supremely tasty beer regardless of the brewery's perception on the site's forum. This quirky IPA is certainly no exception. Everyone who knows me knows that I love odd, new, and little known hop varietals just as much as I love flavorful, competently executed IPAs. So, for me, this IPA really hits the spot. The fact that Rogue opted to not focus on hop varietals normally associated with the style, instead focusing on such overlooked varietals as Newport, Revolution, Independent, Rebel, Freedom, and Alluvial (at least one of which is a creation of the brewery's very own hop farm), makes this ale all the more appealing for me. Rogue Farms 7 Hop IPA is not only definitive proof that American craft brewers can still make an IPA that is fresh, unique, innovative, and tasty, but also proof that there is life left in the style.

Served in a pint glass at PDX Rogue Ales Public House, small qtr inch head , atop a filled-to-the-brim pint glass, mix up yellow, gold, and orange, and that IS the color of this clear, beautiful beer.

Smell is hoppy, but not overly so.

Taste : gotta rate this up a bit, the 7 hops bland well, and are very tasty.

Good mouthfeel, you can do a little "chewing" on this delightful glass of goodness.

My overall would be a 4.15 , not on the list, probably one of my favorites from Rogue. Probably gonna add a couple bottles to the tab, to go. And you can get growlers for the plane ride , too. I know, right? Gotta love Portland.

Rick is the bartender you want here, busy , juggling numerous orders and tasks, but comes thru un frazzled and kind. Thank you, Rogue, and Rick. :)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

22 oz bottle was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a orange copper color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Lemon, lime, herbal, and grassy hops followed by biscuits and pale malts.

Taste: Lemony and lime, herbal, grassy, biscuity, pale malts, and slight lingering bitterness. Can't even notice the alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, tingly bitterness, medium carbonation, and very tasty.

Overall: Local Oregon Rogue ingredients and s DIPA. Yes please. Very enjoyable and worth revisiting.

660ml bottle served in a pint glass.

A: Pours a dark orange to amber color. Slightly hazy. Forms a big, fluffy and creamy light yellow color forming a lot of soapy and lingering lacings in the glass

S: Sweet, fruity and quite flowery in the nose. Strong notes of sweet pale malts, crystal malts, roasted malts, grapefruit, pine, flowery hops and sweet bread. Classic US-05 yeast profile in the end

T: Slightly sweet upfront. Notes of caramel and crystal malts. Quite fruity too with strong notes of orange, grapefruit, pine and sweet bread. Good citrus and grassy hops bitterness in the end. Hops profile is a mix of pine and citrus. Pleasant and intense bitterness in the end. The 8% ABV is quite hidden. Great bittersweet balance

M: Medium molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet and citrus aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Excellent American IPA

7 hop IPA pours a hazy copper color with a nice big lacing and frothy head. There is a nice mellow hoppy and floral aroma. The taste has a nice fresh hoppy flavor, with a earthy aftertaste. Good feel, nice flavors. Overall its a nice IPA, noticeable hop flavors, with some earthy after flavors.
