3.63/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Pale orange IPA with excellent foam and lacing. Good carbonation as well.

Smell: Very strong pine cones. Very Northwestern.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Similarly to the smell, the flavor is full of Cascade hops. A bit too assertive on the hop bitterness, but it finishes with a nice resiny mouthfeel. Medium-full body.

Overall Drinkability: A pretty IPA that could use some more balance or some toning down of the hops.

Serving type: on-tap

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!

A-Pours a cloudy golden, almost light copper color with an off white head that has great retention
S-citrus, lemon, grapefruit, hint of pine
T-Ton of citrus and lemon flavors, with the malt coming in the finish and providing a nice sweetness and leaving orange zest on the palate
M-medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation
O-really solid example of the big hoppy citrus filled American style of the IPA. Would most certainly drink again

A- Very murky cloudy orange- there was some yeast sediment in the bottom of the bottle. I thought I should pour it like my homebrew, and leave the yeast behind, but I decided to pour it in as it did not say anything about leaving it behind. Heavy 3 fingers of white pillowy foam that recedes in 1 finger in about 2 minutes. It looks like head mountains.

S- Classic mild IPA aroma. Citrusy hops with an almost vanilla ice cream type sweetness.

T- BOY! IS THAT BITtER!? The amarillo hops are mean. Not for the faint of heart. Grapefruit, orange peel, pine needles, and lawn clippings in an aggressive hop package. Can't pick up much from the malt because the hops are so over the top.

M- Medium carbonation, nice soft liquid feel, not too dry. You can swish it around nicely and it doesn't get too spritzy or dry. It's a little creamy as well.

O-Too strong for this guy. I like my IPA's, but i like them to be balanced and the hops to be uniform. This is a good example of how the American brewery's are trying to make up for the European's insulting our beer tastes for so long. I fear we may have gone a little too far, but for those on a quest to try the biggest, meanest, bitterest IPA's America has to offer, this should be on the list.
