A clouded golden orange body forms semi clouded/unfiltered especially for a standard IPA out there. I like the difference stats on the bottle weight in with what I like about this beer...including Amarillo hops and labradors on the label. Quite the combination for me anyways damn fine beer. the lacing is left behind in big chunky patterns that are outright brilliant for the appeaance of any single IPA that comes to mind. Aromatics bring out strong citrus grapefruit components just read my Integrity IPA review and it should mirror this one pretty well, considering it's basically the same recipe. Flavor brings a nice bready pac man yeast balance amongst the strong hoppy characteristics adding to the party in the best way possible, quickly one of my favorite IPAs on the market I'm glad friends let me in on this secret. Always my favorite when it was a seasonal release called Integrity thank god it became one of the regular players in their lineup I can even get this beer in West Virginia...although it's most expensive in PA. OH has been good about 5.99 a bomber. Mouthfeelis medium to fuller bodied hop oils galore nice and slick on the palate a beer I'd drink everyday if I could. Go forth and prosper my favorite IPA should be people's white whale but in this case it's probably a beer you already now about and overlook, go figure go drink and enjoy this brew.

Personaly I love this beer ... High IBU brewed beers are not for everyone, especially if you are not used to them. Rogue has a special touch to the beers they make! ....I am a home brewer and would love to make this kind of beer.

Very nice golden color, very good aroma ... malt hop ballanced well concidering the high hop addition. Great hop flavor, ...don't plan on drinking any other kind of beer after this one, you won't really taste it!

If you like "Ruination, Hop Slam, ...ect, you will like this one!

Pours a glowing tangerine haze with a spackle-like meringue on top. The entire glass is coated in the tailings of this mighty, everlasting head. The aroma is sweet and fruity, with a tropical, pineappley front section and some sweet pale malts in the back. The taste is an assault of bitter, fruity hops. There's plenty of astringent grapefruit rind and flesh, pineapple, lemon, melon, apple and other fruit flavors that dont seem to be coming from the yeast. Pine flavors are more restrained than the average hop bomb but its a refreshing change. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and mouthcoating with sweet lupulin. The finish is very bitter and incredibly long lasting.

This is a benmchmark American IPA. It has loads of hops but also massive complexity and balance. Worth a try for sure.
