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.

Appearance - The brew pours a orange amber color with a small white head. The head fades rather fast to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell- The smell is sweet with tons of caramel and tropical fruits of tangerine, pineapple, papaya and a bit of mango. Along with these aromas comes some light grain and grass smells, producing a very inviting aroma overall.
Taste - The taste begins with a sweeter citrus and tropical fruit flavor mixed with a bit of caramel and some light bread. As the taste advances some flavors of grass and grapefruit come to the tongue. Toward the end some flavors of more sweet fruit and a bit of alcohol (light in nature) come to the tongue and leaves one with a warming but fruity and easy going taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel - The body of the beer is rather thick with a carbonation level that is low. For the rich tastes, booziness, and sweeter flavors the feel is great and makes for a great media for all the rich flavors to be appreciated.
Overall - This was a fantastic and tasty brew all while keeping a good but for warning nature. Very flavorful and satisfying and one to try if you have a chance.
