look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: A hazy light orange with a thick, dense off white head that sticks to the glass.

S: Earthy, floral and citrus hop aromas with biscuit malt.

T: The hop flavor hits up front with a floral, fruity, and pine flavor. The malt is sweet and provides a good balance. The finish is pine hop flavor and bitterness.

M: Medium-light body with prickly carbonation.

O: A solid IPA. Good aroma and flavors and well balanced. Recommend this.

On tap at Rogue in Vancouver.

A: 1/8" white head over cloudy yellow liquid reminiscent of urine. True to the name!

S: Floral and citrus hops dominate the smell profile, but it is rather faint.

T: Floral, citrus and some pine hops with a honey malt backbone.

M: Medium viscosity and a medium level of carbonation.

O: Very drinkable and one of the better offerings from Rogue I have had to date.

3.58/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: It has a bit of a cloudy yellow color that clears up after it sits. The head is frothy and plentiful.

Smell: The smell also comes off strong as I opened the bottled but faded. There is a lot of citrus.

Taste: An easy transitioning in flavor type IPA with complex flavors. Bitter sweet citrus at first that finishes sweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a bitterness that doesn’t hit with a lot of pucker factor.

Overall: It wouldn’t be my first choice but I would definitely hit up again.

A golden-yellow, somewhat cloudy/hazy, with big creamy, fluffy, puffy white head.Nice thick, creamy and sticky lacing. pretty light and tame in color for an IPA. Adequate retention.

Nice citrus, piney hops nose, with some caramel malt sweetness to back it up. Very standard IPA scents. Very delicious and inviting.

My mouth is hit with very nice citrus and piney hops notes, abundant here, with a good solid caramel-malt backbone to support it. Very tasty. Everything I demand in any IPA. A good solid medium body, fairly heavy carbonation of course, but the flavors shine through nonetheless.

A solid West Coast IPA, may not be the best or one of the best, may not even be great, but a good reliable standard American IPA. Recommend.

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

Poured from 22 oz. bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy orange hue with a huge white four-finger head that leaves great lacing on the glass.

Smell: Spicy floral hops, mild citrus

Taste: Sweet, citrusy hops with a mild bitterness that doesn't linger. Simple but good.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body with moderate carbonation, definitely drinkable and not a sipper.

Overall: While it's not a strong IPA, it's a good one. Highly recommended.
