look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

Pours a darker apricot color with a fuzzy head of 2 fingers.

Aroma of caramel malt, pepper, pine, caramel, garlic.

Flavor is caramel, ash, pine, and garlic. It's disgusting.

Feel is crisp and carbonated, bordering on clean. Slight chalk and hop residue on the finish.

Overall, a laughable, disgusting IPA with not much going for it. Try making the recipe a little more simple or at least learn how to blend hops. Awful execution. Did you throw a dead body in there too? Wouldn't be out of their methodology. A bad beer from Portland (surprise), a bad beer from Rogue (surprise, surprise).

12 oz can, dated 3/1/18. Pours slightly hazy copper gold with a small creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet funky fruit and some spicy hops.

The flavor is sweet funky fruit (caramel green apples) and minty ashy hops that finish pretty harsh. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, I didn't really care for it.

Super hoppy. With 7 out of 10 beers ipa's now, hoppy beers are over rated in my opinion. Super bitter should.have died in the early 90's.

I get it's an IPA, but this is pointlessly abrasive. Absurdly so really.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Cigar City goblet.

A: Hazy gold in appearance, with a finger's worth of white head that has good retention especially for a hoppy beer. Visible carbonation on the low side.

S: Citrus hops, resin cones, grassy and herbal. Biscuit malts with a fair amount of caramel sweetness. Not a wonderfully promising start here.

T: Bright orange and grapefruit rind, sticky resin and less grassy hops. A punch of naked alpha bitterness as well. A substantial malt body, and although it has less caramel flavors than on the nose it is still present. Orange rind and naked alpha bitterness lasts into the hang.

M: Medium to slightly heavy body. Average carbonation sensation. Alcohol content is noticeable but not hot at all.

O: I mean…look, it’s fine. It isn’t great, there are plenty of similar and many superior IPAs around. Plus, most of those other choices aren’t in an inconvenient 22 oz. bottle. It’s not terrible, but I see no reason to pick this up at all.

Pours an opaque pale amber producing only slightly more than a finger of frothy, short-lived, beige head that recedes to a few surface islands, a very weak/thin collar leaving behind a few wash like wisps of lace. Aroma is raw & fresh, citrus, pineapple, earthy, leafy herbal & resinous pine hoppiness with caramel malt in the background. Taste is orange citrus juice & pith, earthy herbal, pine & pineapple backed up by caramel. Finishes with tounge crawling hoppines of tangerine/orange & pine notes that rapidly transition to a bitter, mildly chalky aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation, tongue embracing, with a pleasant prickliness, drawing & drying aftertaste.

I tore through this series when I was drinking at Mellow Fellow in Reno while waiting for an Aces game to start up. They're all pretty much the same. Once you get into making a series of beers that are substantially similar to each other, I notice beer reviewers tend to rate the one with the highest numbers the highest. For instance, if its a series of beer aged in a barrel for different lengths, they'll choose the one that was in the barrel the longest. The one with the highest abv. The one with the most, or in this instance, the highest number variety of hops. In this case, it is 6. I believe I had a 7 hop one too, and while virtually indistinguishable, I'm sure the 7 hop one is rated higher.

Anyways, the beer pours a golden color, it approaches clarity but doesn't get there. 1/2" white head. Aroma didn't really impart a lot of dry hopping, this is probably the weakest link to the beer. Taste was a bitter medley of hops, nothing was too pronounced, or stood out over the others. Frankly, the majority of these hop varieties don't seem to add much to the overall equation, other than upping the number on the label. Its a decent beer, but doesn't really pop with sexy proprietary hops, instead uses homebrewer homegrown type of hops.

12 oz can

Pours a nice warm shade of darker orangy amber, loose khaki cap, and leaves some nice looking fine and delicate sheets of lacing.

Resiny and herbal hop nose

Enjoyable and sturdy IPA, more resiny hops, with some notes of oranges....moderate and pleasing bitterness on the back end...well done
