pours a very cloudy orange-tan with a fine billowing off white head. this brew is obviously un-filtered. aroma is all hops -- big citrusy pnw hops. the body is very full and smooth. the malts do a better than average job of holding up against the onslaught of hops. this affords for a very balanced and tasty ipa. the hops provide a good deal of bitterness, but are flavorful above all. quite a feather in rogue's cap, which is saying alot. definitely in the top three ipa's of all i've ever tried.

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 !
