New England IPA / 6.20% ABV

3.79/5  rDev 0% | Score: 3.81
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12oz can (@6.7% ABV) - can't say that I've ever heard of a 'batsquatch' (legends are funny that way).

This beer pours a murky, medium apricot yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some pitted limestone wall pattern lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, fresh-squeezed orange and lemon juice, a stony flintiness, and some leafy, weedy, and resinous piney green hop bitters. The taste is grainy and crackery pale malt, muddled domestic citrus rind, subtle tropical fruity notes, a damp minerality, and more herbal, weedy, and dank piney hoppiness.

The carbonation is average in its palate-coating frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with a nice airy creaminess evolving as things warm up a bit by this particular juncture. It finishes off-dry, the citrus and malt essences in a lingering two-step of sorts.

Overall - well, Rogue nails this one pretty hard, ticking all of the boxes with a certain gusto. Nice and frooty, with an eerie lack of bitterness. Is it possible that something can be made TOO well? I'm starting to think so as I polish off the rest of this serving.

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Effervescent gold, soapy head and bouncy carbonation. Hops are pretty grassy on this one - I feel like many hopped Belgians have that quality, must be how it meshes with the Belgian yeast - though it feels a little watery & light.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Murky dark brownish red color. Medium prickly carbonation with a nice medium body.
Aroma is cherry vinegar, malt, yeast, mild funk and dark fruit
Taste outshines the aroma with cherry vinegar and barely sweet cherry juice showing up first. Prune,date,dark fruit, malt is also very present. The flavor seems subtle at first but intensifies and coats the tongue in a very pleasant way .
It comes off as far from sweet and even a little dry which really allows all the flavors to stand out really well

T/F: Tangy citrus... strong tangerine and tropical fruit. Pineapple, mango, and grapefruit. Medium bodied... sticky on the tongue. More fruit juice at the finish.

O: A delicious triple IPA. Outstanding flavor and hides the ABV dangerously well. Super drinkable and a wonderful beer.
