Pours a cloudy amber color with an orange hue. One can tell that this is a hoppy drink considering towards the end of the pour, hops sediment is visible. Minimal head for the style, it soon dissipates but leaves a thin collar that retains. Nevertheless, despite the thin head, it’s an attractive looking drink.
Tropical fruit greet the nose in all their juicy sweetness. I detect mango, papaya, guava, pineapple and passion fruit. The malt aroma hints at crystal/caramel.
First impressions in the mouth are of a rather clean and dry palate brew that belies the juicy sweetness of the aroma. The malt texture feels full and bready. However, the 7 varieties of hops soon make their presence felt. They provide a moderate bitterness and flavors of pine and tobacco in the finish. Unlike the aroma, they hint more at citrus, grapefruit pith and light lemon tartness, rather than tropical fruit. Also, as the drink warms, the sweetness opens up and reveals a silky caramel flavor.
Medium bodied with a supple malt fullness. Oily and slick, yet, dry. The carbonation is soft and gentle. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

Light amber, cloudy with a little carbonation, and topped with 2 fingers of creamy, beige head.

Smells fruity and hoppy. Caramel and lilacs, oranges and pine. Lemon zest, and apple sauce.

Sweet and caramel like, but full of tropical fruits, oranges and children's aspirin. Pineapple and jackfruit, pine and a dull, bitter finish. Getting lemons and lemon zest as well.

Medium, slightly resinous and sticky body, with medium to low carbonation.

Got this yesterday at Namton's, drinking it today at home. Very balanced and flavourful beer. More of a showcase for hops, but not overly hopped compared to some brews.

L - opaque amber/orange with a very big, think, and dense frothy head that sticks around and leaves behind some lacing. It's pretty rare you see a head like this on an IPA. Very nice looking beer.
S - piney hops, citrus, and malt - not too strong.
T - Follows the nose. Hop forward with nice notes of pine, citrus, and a nice malt backbone to tie it all together. There's also a slight note of caramel throughout.
F - Medium to full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Somewhat creamy as well - not surprising considering the dense head.
O - This is a really nice IPA that puts together some great hop, pine, and citrus notes. While it's nothing crazy in terms of being something experimental, it's definitely a solid IPA from Rogue that everyone should try.

I can't put my finger on this one.

Colour is nice, nose is great but the taste is leaving me something synthetic, almost fake minty.

Might be the strong sweet caramel malt mixed with the resiny pine hops.

From Elcervecero. In Teku glass. Playing Mirrored Ch1 + Watching Games of Thrones 7x03. Bomber. More pine soup, resinous and alcoholic than their 6 hops version. I think I prefer that one over this, as it was more balanced and drinkable

Undated bottle into pint glass. Pours a hazy amber with a thick, durable, light tan head. Initial impression is citrus, pine, caramel and bready malts, some floral stuff going on...I'll admit that my palate is not sufficiently finely-tuned to discern all that is going on, flavor-wise. Seven hops indeed. Mouthfeel is just short of chewey, and carbonation is just on the light side of medium. Finish is sweetish, but with a residual hops bite in the back of your throat. Alcohol (7.77% - really?) is nicely hidden. Quite tasty, although a little cloying and too malty for my tastes.
