look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Murky orange amber glass holds a solid cover of tan foam that doesn't lace.

Smell: Hoppy, but not your usual hop nose. A pineapple note in an earthy, lightly peppery profile. Almost get a bit of rye, leafy but not quite bitter hops.

Taste: Almost balanced, where I expected a hop slap. The wort is slightly under-attenuated but the sappy sweetness is soaked up by the hops. Tea like flavor, a little of the exotic fruit hop notes in the nose. The scary thing is what you don't taste: alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Carbonation level is pretty low giving a cask like smoothness which is nice. Slick texture with a lasting coat.

Overall: A good beer! A little different take on a DIPA, different is good, but doesn't unseat the best IPA in Texas (woo Endeavor). Certainly worth a try.

Lacking a bit for an imperial but otherwise, a good brew. Nice color, low on the hop aroma. Normal mouthfeel for a light IPA not for an IIPA. Could use a bit more thickness. Mellow hop presence but light enough for a TX summer night.

Keep up the good work Rogness.

not my favorite imperial ipa, thats for sure, and my first rogness beer is a poor one. this really looks pretty nice, dark amber in color, red for an ipa, with a massive fluffing of white head as light as a cloud and lasting pretty well. the nose is mostly bitterness with very little interesting hop character and a little more dense malt than it needs, which is odd, because this drinks rather watery. there is a strong metallic tinge on the nose and taste of this, particularly after the swallow, its to the point that its a little tough to drink and hurts my tummy. i do like the lightness of it, but the flavors just arent there. bitterness and minerals as it swallows, thin and bubbly, hefty enough though. a bomber was tough to take down, not because of the alcohol, which i think is respectably well hidden, but because it just doesnt taste very good. ill try something else or two before i write of the brewery though...
