Big,Big,Big this beer is all around nice.Hazy golden in color,stong floral hops on the nose and a nice representation of what an Imperial IPA should taste like.Tasted this years bottle and a two year old keg,that keg could lay there for another ten and the hops would still bite ya,Hop Heads delight!

Pretty golden color, not much head... thin clear bubbles at the top of the beer. Clean, malty and grapefruit smell upfront. Robust, malty and clean upfront, excellent grapefruit and bitterness blend in... thick mouthfeel and a pleasant soft mouthfeel. I really was expecting something quite belligerent and ass-kicking, instead I think I found Rogue's most balanced beer, certianly one of the best.

This is a great IPA. Even though it does push the evelope I don't think it crosses the line. Powerfull Citrusy Hop character. Nice dense head, smooth body. Unfortunately the word is that it will not longer be bottled. Although I have not heard why it probably has to do with the price and or availability of the bottles. I am lucky enough to live not 10 miles from there Portland based pub and can get this beauty on tap (yes you should be jealous :-) ) Update: now in the 12oz bottle.
