the rogue farms project is such a cool series of beers, with stuff we dont see too often in the beer world. i mean, some of them have been downright bizarre. this one is less inspired than some of the others honestly, and as much as i love wet hop beer, this one doesnt necessarily display those qualities as well as i would like it to. the homegrown thing is awesome, and i have to give points for that, but this recipe needs more hops. i get a balanced american pale here, not a wet hop ipa. that sticky fresh sappy hop thing is too subtle, its only in the finish, and the grain seems to be showcased as much as the hops when i just want it to get out of the way. maybe part of it is i am not familiar with the hops used in this recipe, they are rogues own i think, and they are either real mild or way under dosed. that said, the beer is clean drinking, autumnal in its own way, and pretty dark tasty. i just wish for more of the wet hop character, maybe next year.

22oz bottle poured into a glass. It has a burnt orange color body with a 2" white creamy head, that hangs out for a lttle bit and leaves a sticky foam on the glass. The smell has a very nice hop aroma and some malt coming through also. The taste has a very bitter hop flavor with a malt backbone. The mouth is very smooth and leaves a bitter after taste on the tongue. Overall this beer is really good.

Served on-draught into an Oskar Blues pilsner glass at a restaurant in SoCal. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a three finger beige colour head of nice cream and thickness, and great retention. Colour is a vibrant copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Delightful floral hops, clean pale malts, and bright fruit. A pleasant aroma of mild strength.

T/Mf: Heavy floral and bittering hops. Accompanying naked bitterness is murky; decently hidden by the malty sweetness. Shockingly light on the palate and refreshing. Quite light on the palate. Fresh and refreshing. Very wet and smooth. Quite well executed.

Dr: Very drinkable and enjoyable. A tasty IPA from Rogue. I'd have it again - but only on-draught. Surprisingly solid stuff from Rogue; I remember it being worse from the bottle.
