Thanks to Libation Station for having this on draft. Poured from 32 oz. growler into pint glass.

Dark amber/orange color with little or no head and lacing. Probably because it's in a growler.

Smell is old school hoppy with hints of biscuity malt. Nice

Taste is old school dipa. Smack in the face hops but kind of balanced. More piney than citrus in the hops. Me likee.

Mouthfeel is good. I would expect some hop oil on my tongue but there is none. Nice lingering bitterness though.

Overall a really good dipa. If you like Avery's Maharaja you'll like this one. Very similar and really good.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours very hazy medium orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky cream colored head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, papaya, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. A bit too malty/muddy aromas. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/earthy hops, honey, and bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, papaya, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, papaya, citrus peel/rind, peppercorn, pine, honey, toasted biscuit, light caramel, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops, honey, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/bready/grainy/sticky, and fairly resinous/rindy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 10.1%. Overall this is a delicious DIPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/earthy hops, honey, and bready malt flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV, with the modestly bitter/resinous/drying finish; not overly aggressive. Very juicy, dank, and earthy hop complexity; with balanced honey/bready malts. Not overly sweet/heavy from lingering dryness. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example. Their farm hops always feel pretty classic/old school on flavors.

Presentation: 22 oz. brown bottle with no dates printed anywhere. Served in a Sensorik glass.

Appearance: The two finger head sticks around for a while and ends in a thin foam layer. Hazy dark gold, almost amber colored. Lacing coats the entire glass.

Smell: Musky, pine resin hop notes and ripe fruit. Sweet, grainy malt sweetness.

Taste: Malt sweetness, grains and honey. The alcohol is very present and pretty overpowering. No hop character to speak of except for a faint hoppy aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium-high carbonation. The sweetness is a bit cloying. Smooth and creamy but it goes down pretty hard. Drink with food.

Overall: It looks and smells nice, but disappoints in the flavor department where it matters most. The alcohol and sweetness just take over. For something that boasts of having 10 types of hops in it, they're surprisingly absent. An easy pass.

Poured from a bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip

L: Slightly hazed golden copper pour with 2 fingers of fluffy white head.

S: Sweet toasted malts and piney hops. Milder citrus and honey.

T/F: Caramel malts... sweet and bready up front. Bitter hops. Resinous pine, light citrus, and herbal notes. The hops mostly balance the sweet malts and booze ( you definitely notice the ABV). Honey and mild spice. Medium bodied... oily on the tongue.

O: A pretty outstanding DIPA (probably crosses into the Triple IPA realm). Boozy... hoppy... sweet and bitter in turns. Very nice beer.

Reddish-orange in the glass. Hazy and nice lacy head. The hop boquet is delicious. Think bodied with a smooth hopped up lupen in the finish. This one is a special brew loaded with Oregonian hops.

22oz bottle served in a curved glass. Beer is deep amber in color, very double IPA with emphasis on the double. Has the malt-forward aroma of older IPAs like dogfish 90. Which is to say, this is not exactly hop-forward in the nose. Lots of bitterness, as you'd expect, but not completely unbalanced due to the honey and caramely flavors.

I think I'd describe this beer the same way I'd describe Rogue Brewery in general: 10 years ago, I'd have been really impressed. And maybe nostalgia for simpler IPAs has its place and time for enjoyment. But it also limits this beer to a niche that's not so impressive any more.

From the bottle, it pours the expected hazy amber with a modest head. Malt, citrus in the nose. The mouth gets a very pleasant flavor with lightly malty overtones and a gentle hoppiness. Nice!

On tap. Poured a clear, orange-amber color with a small, tan head of foam. It smelled malty with bread crust, pine and citrus. Very malty with a pine bitterness. Toffee and caramel sweetness.

The deep end in Rogue’s 6, 7, 8 series has arrived (Is there a 9? If so, I haven’t seen it.) and it’s a very fine DIPA with a robust Rogue character. It has a big, crisp head that gives way to elegant lacing and a lovely, deep, dried-apricot orangey brown color. What the aroma promises - honeyed malts and lupulins galore - the taste delivers. Vibrant hop tones ranging all the way from citrus to black tea and black pepper, are layered over a beautiful, rock solid foundation of malts. Fine firm body. I think it’s the best of the series so far.

22oz bottle - ten different Rogue farm hops, their own honey, and of course, Rogue love.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium copper amber colour, with three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly ecru head, which leaves some melting ice floe pattern lace around the glass as it lazily seeps away.

It smells of semi-sweet, bready and doughy caramel malt, biscuity toffee, blood orange and red grapefruit, a further muddled tropical fruitiness, and some leafy, piney, and soused-up floral green hop bitters. The taste is grainy and bready caramel malt, treacle, a mixed bowl of domestic grocery store aisle fruity essences, equally mixed exotic notes, some estery alcohol heat, and more piney, herbal, and perfumed floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its palate-teasing frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and mostly smooth, but for a touch of burgeoning booze ingress starting to make waves at this point in the game. It finishes off-dry, the big malt, fruit and liquor lingerers landing as such.

Overall - from the outset, this offering has reminded me of the first time that I ever had a West Coast DIPA, while on vacation in the Tri-Cities area of Washington State, many moons ago. Well-made, all from scratch, and with 10.10 points of the ol' wowee sauce barking at the gates - just how I like it.

Dark orangey amber with plenty of foam in the tumbler. It starts out rich and hot, but the bitter hammer never falls. It's just a boatload of hops that cover all the flavors. Hints of apricot, grilled mango, pine, and mud in your eye. It's kind of a hop stew, but surprisingly mellow.

Overall, this is actually about my favorite of Rogue's pack of mongrels. It's highly sippable and is so full of flavors without the bitter abuse. Imagine if Stone had made this, my tongue wold be bleeding. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Haggen Market in Washington state.
