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

I've had this one on-tap a few times but today I really focused on the qualities of this beer and took note.

Pours a deep cloudy glowing orange color with a nice medium frothy semi-tan head. Head maintains its foamy edge in clumps while the lacing seems to be average.

Aroma is strong on the hop notes. I knew this was an amarillo showcase beer going in but it's fairly apparent. Quite citric in an orange way with notes of grapefruit acidity and piney bitterness but its not out of hand. A deep grassy element lies in there as well but it takes a bit to really notice it. A bit of fruity malty sweetness makes its way out a few sniffs in.

Taste is also amarillo dominated. There's a slight doughy cookie like yeast flavor lying underneath but the malts seem to contribute very little except a slight body with orange notes and the alcohol. Amarillo is quite biting in its citric qualities. Never sweet but the beer dries more and more the further one imbibes to the point of thirsting for another sip immediately. Notes of pine and grapefruit throughout, yet the acidity and bitterness are well restrained while letting you know they're there. An excellent showcase for the amarillo.

Mouthfeel is solid with the excellent carbonation Rogue always seems to provide and the controlled crazy hoppiness. Only the malts are weak and the yeasty cookie dough flavor gets a bit odd at times but not too often.

Drinkability is ridiculous. 7% or something like that and this went down like butter. I continually need another sip and I am always craving another pint once I have finished my first. I have never sessioned this though and I think it may get out of hand if I tried. Maybe soon I will give it a go. And you should too!

In a growler filled at N.Y.C.'s New Beer. Pours into a Belgian type tulip, just a few hours later. Clear, burnt copper, glowing amber, Initially soft and tiny bubble head, moderate retention showing and then just a tiny bubble sheen on the top and some super fine spotty lace left behind. Nose is of malt and bitter hop notes. Quite hoppy brew. Initial maltyness is quickly overtaken by a bitter, resiny hop assault. Being a hop fan, the overall impression is of a quite pleasant, hoppy AIPA, more high quality west coast style ale from the creative brewers of Rogue

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

A: Pours a hazy bright orange in color which is expected in an unfiltered brew. The tiniest of heads was noted along with very little spotty lace.

S: Sweet fruit and tons of floral notes. From fresh cut flowers to grass this one covers the floral spectrum.

T: A clean grassy floral flavor with a blast of nice sweet malt. Tinges of sweet fruits can be noted and believe it or not a touch of yeast.

M: Smooth and clean. Very crisp on the tongue.

D: I really enjoyed it. Enough to have two pints. One of Rogue's finest brews. Try it if you can find it.

Good medium honey amber pour with lasting white head. Smell is of big grassy, fruity, floral hops. Taste is grassy, hoppy, pretty bitter, and not as sweet malt or caramel backed as I prefer in IPAs, but this wasn't bad. Nice hoppy taste, a touch bland and feels like it needs something...Bit watery body too.

12 oz. on-tap at the Capital House in Richmond - brewed with 100% Amarillo hops and the menu declares it 6.2%. It arrives a clear copper, with low carbonation and a thin, khaki head that leaves nice lacing. Tropical and fruity in the nose, with sweet oranges dominating, but there are also earthy and caramelly notes. On the palate, the hops are quite bitter, tasting herbal and minty, with a touch of orange and pine flavors on top of toasted, biscuity, and caramel malts. Its medium body is quite dry, with medium carbonation, and imparting a long finish. Overall, it's a nice, West Coast IPA that is a treat on-tap.

This is a hard beer for me to review. I didn't like the beer when I drank it at a local beer bar. But compared to the overall style, i guess it is ok. I'm not a big fan of the IPA, they are just too fruity to me. So I'm trying to review this based on style, not on personal preferance. Recieved it on tap, at the flying saucer, it was in a pint glass, with a golden color, with a 2 finger head. The smell was citrusy, with a hint of orange jumping out at you. The taste was very fruity, had a more citrus taste than I was expecting.T he Mouthfeel was light. All in all this was an ok beer for me. Just not my personal preference.

Growler from State Line in Maryland.

One finger white head sits atop of a murky orange body that screams "IM A IPA...DRINK ME" Kick ass lacing that leaves rings as I drink my pint.

Very California citrusy,piney hop notes.

Citrus,piney hops leads to a small amount of malt.They may not have even put malt in this brew.Dank hop flavor attacks your palate.

Mouthfeel is heavenly and goes down pretty easy.

I like this stuff alot.Reallyeasy despite the abv. I will have again when I find it again.

Consumed vom Fass at Barley's Taproom in Greenville, SC. Hazy and amber in appearance with a respectable, sticky head leaving a lingering lace throughout. Huge aroma notes of piney goodness and citrus punch. Smooth on the palate, this brew found the right mix of malt and hops here... The hops are the story, no question. Fantastic flavors of fresh off the vine citrus and hoppy, juicy goodness. A fantastic brew, and one I can only hope comes back around next year in the Lockerstock offerings...

On-tap at Clark's Ale House in Syracuse.

Order a half pint and it came in a wine glass looking a hazy orange with a thin, delicate white head. What stuck me about this beer was the incredible balance and smooth drinkability. Citrus and apricot hops still dominated enough to satisfy and hophead, but it could also appeal to the IPA-shy crowd. Quite tasty with a lingering aftertaste. Yummy.

On tap at the Sanctuary in Iowa City. These John's Locker Stock beers always keep me coming back. Great stuff through and through.

The beer pours to a nice orangish amber color with a mid-sized collar of white head. Retention is alright. Lacing could be better. Some carbonation apparent.

The smell is wonderful. Very grapefruity hops aroma with a bit of a lemon zest on the end. Fairly piney and resinous. Great malt profile in the background with a nice caramel flavor as well as just a hint of bready malt.

The taste is every bit as good as the nose suggests. I wouldn't have guessed it was 100% amarillo, though I can definitely taste a distinctive amarillo flavor, it just seems like there is also something rougher there, like chinook. Anyways, a great IPA. Nice and bitter, just like I like them, and not too grassy like many West Coast IPA's tend to be. The balance is skewed more to the hops, obviously, but it is just the type of balance I tend to enjoy in an IPA: has a great malt profile that isn't completely hidden by the hops, nor is it overly obtrusive.

The body is medium with a strong lingering bitterness. Crisp carbonation. Very good. Despite the fairly high alcohol content, I could drink this all night, as I demonstrated on my friend's recent 21st birthday.

A lockerstock session offering for those who are hopheads in the know, or lucky like me to try this wonderful offeriing. Color and glass lacing are enticing, beautiful amber color and the beer retains a wonderful head. The smell of grassy prairie hops- summit would say draws one in. first taste is to die for,beautiful hops, long finish, smooth though a bit waterery. the hops lingers in a smooth mellow burn affect. wonderfully balanced beer maybe too balanced so as to water down the effect. this, as with many rogue products scores high in drinkability and is an ultimate seesion beer. tasty and enjoyable and highly drinakable. A great and solid offering from rogue to those trained palates in the know..Is that yours or are you one of the enemy???

Went into Barleys for Brooklyn launch, but as usual was abit early. Always looking to see what the new Lockerstock offering is, and was pumped to say the least to find out it was the integrity IPA! Being the die hard hop fan that I am, was looking forward to this to say the least. Poured a deep hazy amber with a big white, sticky head that had very nice retention and left a large gooey and dripping presence of lace down the side of the glass. This one looked like it meant business, and I was all about diving into it while chowing on my pizza for dinner.

Smell was awesome, rich juicy pine resin hops, with hints of orange, tangerine mixed in to add a subtle sweetness. Very strong smell, you could almost pick up the stickiness in the aroma alone. Very much a hop bomb waiting to go off, and I am not one for keeping it waiting any longer. Diving right in, first impression was hot damn, we have a winner! Super sticky and strong on the gums, with a pine hop you could chew. Very smooth delivery, not overly carbonated, but not syrup like either. Great mix of hops here, as the first thing you taste is a huge grapefruit or tangerine like bitter aroma, but it is the stick pine tar like feeling that stays with you. Great finish, so dry it make you pucker your lips. As it warmed there was a definate malt presence trying to break its way in, and the sweetness even in the beginning alluded to this, and it was very nicely done, balanced but a bomb none the less.

Overall I loved this and it was a great way to start my evening. It was exactly as I had hoped a gooey sticky, resin filled, IPA, that threatened to tear your lips off. Hats off to another fine offering from Rogue, I really love this series they put together, nothing ever seems to dissapoint, and this was never more evident. If its the hops you desire, and they have this on tap, go for it, it is definatly worth the price of admission!

Slightly hazy orange-caramel body. 1" of white head that reduced to a 1/8" layer. Nice lacing down the glass.

Light aroma of citrus and pine. Very light malting comes through to try to offer some balance. Smell is fine but its weak and one dimensional.

Flavor is nice and bitter. Pine and pine resin dominate, especially in the finish. Has an earthy finish.

Medium mouthfeel that coats well with a lingering flavor. Has the right amount of carbonation. Slightly dry finish.

Super easy to put down if you're in the mood for a hoppy, piney beer. Quite refreshing.

Pours a beautiful translucent, dark golden honey-brown. The aroma is nice and hoppy though not strong. Taste is wildly hoppy, with hints of lemon and honey-like sweetness. Bitterness is restrained. Decidedly drinkable and enjoyable, this is another winner from the Rogue brewery.

On tap. Poured into a pint glass.

A: Hazy bright orange in color. Dense off white head pours two fingers thick with good retention. Nice sticky lacing clings to the glass.

S: Citrus fruit. Pine sap. Asprin. Sweet malts. Yeast.

T: A clean cirus juice flavor is quickly muscled out of the way by a strong cirtus and pine hop bitterness that leaves a medicinal blast on the tongue. Rich caramel malts balance things out well and are followed by the taste of more citrus juice. Fresh baked bread and a soft earthy presence cap off a dry finish.

M: Smooth and clean. Moderate carbonation. Drying finish.

D: A very nice use of the Amarillo hop and this beer is tasty indeed. Just a tad over the seesionable mark because of the dryness factor. A slightly different IPA that is a hop head's delight.
