look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Very hazy apricot color with a decent foamy white head that dissipates slowly to just a ring but does manage some decent lacing.
The aroma is pineapple, mango, orange and lemon with some light malt background.
The taste is similar with some grapefruit and pine resin added, very tropical juice forward, tasty.
It has a light to medium body, very smooth.
Overall a very tasty refreshing brew. Excellent for warm weather, but good anytime.

12 oz. can:

Pours hazed yellow with a fluffy white head that thins to a lasting cover. Web-like lacing drapes down the glass.

The smell is of pine, some citrus, something a bit catty.

The taste is of pine, floral/herbal notes with some citrus - orange and mango. Something a bit medicinal in the juicy finish.

Juicy, pretty creamy feel.

An odd IPA. But, it works. Moderate bitterness, very juicy. An interesting hazy New England style IPA.

12oz can (@6.7% ABV) - can't say that I've ever heard of a 'batsquatch' (legends are funny that way).

This beer pours a murky, medium apricot yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves some pitted limestone wall pattern lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, fresh-squeezed orange and lemon juice, a stony flintiness, and some leafy, weedy, and resinous piney green hop bitters. The taste is grainy and crackery pale malt, muddled domestic citrus rind, subtle tropical fruity notes, a damp minerality, and more herbal, weedy, and dank piney hoppiness.

The carbonation is average in its palate-coating frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and generally smooth, with a nice airy creaminess evolving as things warm up a bit by this particular juncture. It finishes off-dry, the citrus and malt essences in a lingering two-step of sorts.

Overall - well, Rogue nails this one pretty hard, ticking all of the boxes with a certain gusto. Nice and frooty, with an eerie lack of bitterness. Is it possible that something can be made TOO well? I'm starting to think so as I polish off the rest of this serving.

12oz can

Pours just about a finger of white head into my stemless snifter. Retention isn’t anything to write home about, but there is some great initial lacing and film. Body looks like murky orange juice.

Aroma is kinda on the lighter side here. Faint notes of grapefruit, pineapple, orange, light dank hop presence. It smells good, to style, but would like deeper notes.

Flavor is very interesting. Maybe the most “juice” like hazy I’ve had, there is a constant characteristic through the entire palate that says juice more than beer – it’s got a smooth, creamy feel, with the flavors of oats and juice. Some earthy hops in the background. Doesn’t taste like an IPA at all, flavors are way too light, even for a hazy. With that being said, I actually don’t mind this, drinks like a blonde, it’s smooth and goes down easy. Kinda a hard beer to grade here because it doesn’t taste like an IPA, or a hazy IPA, and it flirts with not tasting like beer, or having any taste at all, but at the end of the day I’m enjoying it.

The mouthfeel is perhaps the most precarious part of the beer, because it’s not flat, but it has the silkiest feel, with a carbonation that is seemingly not there. This abnormality is easier to welcome than the ones in the flavor. Bitterness is very low and doesn’t linger. Pretty dang dry for a hazy, which I don’t mind at all. This is certainly the strongest aspect of the beer, and the most unique.

Drinkability is through the roof.

The appearance turned out pretty good. Thick lacing all the way down the glass.

Overall it’s hard for me to muster the strength to say I enjoyed this, because so many things are morally wrong with it, but it was an enjoyable beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12 oz. can with the canning date printed on the bottom. Served in a Willi Becher glass.

Appearance: The two and a half finger head stays around for a very long time and goes down into a thick foam layer. It leaves a lot of thick lacing all over the glass in big patches. It's a completely hazy, pale yellow color.

Smell: It's all sweet and fruity. There's faint aromas of pineapple, mango, papaya and lemon.

Taste: It starts off sweet and juicy with some grapefruit, mango, papaya and pineapple. There's some pronounced, earthy grains in there as well and an oily, pine resin aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: It's silky smooth, creamy and medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall: It looks great and feels great. The juicy aroma and flavors are good but the scent is too subdued. As a whole, it's one of Rogue's best offerings even though it's pretty much brand new.

Look: Very attractive hazy tangerine appearance with two fingers of head. Amazing lacing.
Smell: First smell gives overwhelming tangerine with slight pineapple chew, very tropical.
Taste: Very much matches smell. Super fruit taste with a small of malted backing up the bitterness. Amazing juicy taste
Feel: A lot of carbonation mixed with fruit taste and a slight makt balance making it a perfect juice bomb!
Overall: One of the best IPA's I've tried when it comes to searching for the juiciest. The flavor profile is perfect and definitely has an upfront citrus feel with enough malted to make sure it isn't over the tope!

A: The beer is very hazy yellow in color—too hazy to see if there is any visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high white head that left a bullseye pattern of bubbles on the surface with concentric circles and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of oranges and mangos are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell, having flavors of oranges and mangos along with hints of tropical fruits.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and very juicy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite fruity and juicy. It is very easy to drink.

Serving type: can
