Wow, I am pretty open minded on beer but this may have been the worst IPA I ever had. Had on draft, no brightness and tasted like muddy old fruit.

12 oz bottle poured into a shaker pint.

Appearance
Golden amber with 1 finger of loose bone-white head. Good clarity with moderate carbonation.

Nose
Honey, honeydew, cantaloupe, pine, grapefruit, caramel, and toffee.

Taste
Honeydew and cantaloupe. Firm caramel and honey backing. Finishes with some smooth pine and grapefruit zest. Residual sugars linger.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, crisp, oily, sticky, and semi-sweet with a medium-light bitterness.

Overall
The hops and malt are in perfect balance. It's a Rogue IPA, better known as an Amber Ale.

On-draught @ Rogue San Francisco. Collab with Mother Nature.

Sweetens on the finish, delving into a fruit sherbet flavour I'm none too keen on. Coating mouthfeel. Medium-bodied.

Bright orange body, plenty of haze, topped by four fingers of billowing white foa. Dense lacing.

Big inviting mixed aroma. Apricots, pine, grapefruit and I'm not sure what else.

The malt doesn't really get a foothold, and there is an overriding piney hop taste from beginning to end that makes this surprisingly one dimensional considering the aroma and variety of ingredients. Slightly unpleasantly astringent aftertaste.

Ok medium mouthfeel.

I am not a Rogue brasher by any means, I'm a big fan of many of their beers, but this is a miss for me.

Not bad. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Smelled toasted bread with a earthy citrus. The toasty malts hit me first and the a spicy hop bit turning bitter. Not much head and no lacing. Good body. It was ok.

Nice to try a different option from Rogue, but yhis beer is definitely not worth going oug of your way to find. Ihave nothing really bad to say about it, but also nothing good either. Malty but not overly so, a bit syrupy mouthfeel. Its ok for a Monday night, but I would suggest passing on this one.

This pours a bright and clear 24K gold with a 2 finger head of foam that does well with the lacing.

It has a good citrus and piney nose that smells like this bottle is really fresh; I assume that as Rogue does not believe in any sort of dating system for their bottles. For shame.

I get citrus grapefruit up front, some pine and grass following, and a heaping helping of caramel malt right before the finish. I find the overall tasting experience a bit on the rough side despite an attempt at some balance.

Medium bodied, same for carbonation, the mouthfeel seems harsh?

I'm not a fan of this IPA. 1 bottle and done.
