Pours a medium-light orange with a finger or so of tight, white cap that dropped to a thin sheet of bubbles. Slightly cloudy with a little lace.
Aroma has a sour, lemony aspect that I didn't really like/wasn't expecting. There is also just a touch of funk that seemed out of place. I like more grapefruit or orange and some pine in an IPA. The aroma wasn't awful, but below average imo.
Taste has a lemony and fruity pinch offset by a faint bready sweetness. A bit sour. Red grapefruit shows up late with an acrid hop bitterness that lingers.
Medium to full bodied that finishes dry and semi-sticky. Carbonation is good.
I'd put drinkability at average.
A rather run-of-the-mill IPA from Rogue. It's decent, but I'm not sure I'd seek this one out again. Perhaps if I knew it was fresh.
