Appearance is a honey amber with a white head that fades and nice lacing.

Nose is sweet malt, pine needles, orange blossom honey, croissant.

Taste is initially biting from hops and alcohol, fading into blood orange, citra hops, vanilla, grapefruit zest finish.

Mouthfeel is full, slick, with plenty of carbonation.

Overall, it is a fine, but not especially interesting American IPA.

rich aromas of muscato, oak and malt; thick-bodied, quite bitter and earthy, sagey and resiney; finish bitter and austere, though not unpleasant. a big contrast from Rogues 4 Hop IPA and fun to drink in parallel. I personally go with 4 Hop for the care-free juicy hoppiness.

This is a really good AIPA, but in a world full of them, it is better than many but inferior to many as well, and ..., just very good. (see the rest of review - on final review, it is outstanding).

It opens deep yellow. The head and foam are nice. The aroma is rich, malty and sweet. Not really hoppy!

The taste is bitter but balanced with some crazy malts. The multitude of hops seem to have blended well, mellowing themselves. It does continue to improve with warming too.

In general, this is a pretty malty AIPA, and that is the redeeming quality. It's bitter but malty and not at all a one dimensional hops bomb as the name would suggest. Recommended. On further review, it is outstanding..

Glad to find this as a single for $2.50 can't stand Rogue's 8-10 dollar bombers pricing.

A - Burnt dark amber brown clear and super bubbly with a 1/2 inch of head that settles to a nice lace ring.
S - A bit subdued for a 7 hop beer mild citrus and pine hops smells pretty balanced with the malt base.
T - Wow this is actually quite good! The hop profile seems mended very well its almost like it has no bitterness but finishes crisp and clean. It reminds me of Founders Harvest ale.
M - As I stated it is clean and crisp hoppy but balanced and a nice clean finish.

Overall I have never really wanted to run out and get another beer by Rogue but this beer is so good I may just snag a few more next time I am at Carnivores!
