Bottle into a snifter. Copper in color with amazing clarity. Topped with 1.5 fingers of soft, dense, white foam. Weak aroma, but I get hints of mango, tangerene, hop resin, citrus, and pine. Incredibly fruity on the taste, but not a typical tropical profile. This is like grapefruit, mango, pineapple, etc infused with artificial sugar, almost like a tropical bubblegum or something. Definitely on the sweet side, and a touch malty. Despite the name, little hop bitterness is there. Decently creamy mouthfeel, and a damn near perfect weight.

Overall, it's okay. Not what I was expecting by any means.

A - Pours a hazy burnt orange with a two finger foamy white. The head recedes to a thin ring leaving heavy soapy lacing.

S - Aroma is caramel malts, floral hops, orange peel and grapefruit.

T - The flavor starts with a strong amount piney hops. The hops fade into sweet caramel malts and some light citrus. The finish has a lingering piney bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel with dry finish.

O - This is a nice IPA and one of the better beers I've had from Rogue.

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.

22oz bottle served in a Rogue glass somewhere between a snifter and a tulip. I don't see a date on it, but since it's still half full I can't search very thoroughly. I'll check after I drain the bottle. <later> Now that the bottle is empty, I can see something on the bottom of the bottle, but even looking hard to read. It might say something like 297-D1-0129. Not sure though. </later>

Pours amber with a medium head and medium carbonation. Somewhat hazy. Smell is fairly mild, mostly pine bitterness and toasty malt.

Taste is some kind of bready sweetness with a strong straight pine bitterness. Not bad, but fairly simple.

Mouthfeel is silky and dry. Overall, not bad.

Appearance: poured golden honey with a foamy and frothy head that lasted for a long time after pouring. lots of thick lacing on the insides of the glass. 4.5

Smell: intenst hop boquet. lovely hop aroma but doesnt smell grassy or green. can smell a little of the malt too. 4

Taste: absolutely delicious and complex hop flavor, again without the green and grassy notes and a moderate bitterness at the very finish. backed by a sweet and simple malty flavor. this beer seems like it glows in your mouth during the experience. almost a mint-like sensation. very special. 4.75

Mouthfeel: this IPA is full bodied and has a fairly viscous construction. the glowing sensation is partly flavor but partly mouthfeel as well. this beer has a remarkable mouthfeel. 4.25

Overall: this beer is one of my new favorite IPAs. the hop flavor is great, and I love the minty sensation that this beer provides. 4.5
