The aroma is citric and fruity, really a lovely hop boquet which develops quite interestingly as the beer sits. Appearance is orangeish with a slight chill-haze and a finger-thick bubbly head. I was taken aback at how smooth this beer is in the mouth. The big citric hop flavors are there, but the blend of hops Rogue has chosen provides for a delightfuly complex hop presence throughout the entire drink. Citric up front, some floral notes in the middle, and a good but not at all overpowering bitterness to the finish. Medium bodied, with a crisp, fresh feel and flavor. Not "XS"ive in the least!

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
