A- Pours a hazy light-orange with 2 fingers of thick foamy head with great retention and lacing.

S- Light hop smell - maybe a light orange/citrus. Good but could use more of it.

T- Good flavor up front on the sweet/citrus side at first but then finishes with all hop bitterness. Hop taste really lingers with a little dryness.

M- Medium body with light to medium carbonation.

O- A pretty good IPA and true to style - i'd prefer it a little less dry with more aroma. I wish some of the sweet/citrus carried over into the finish but it just turns very bitter/dry.

Served from a growler into a pint glass

A- Poured a very hazy orange with two finger frothy head that leaves lots of coating lace

S- Big floral and piney notes

T- Big floral, piney, perfume and herbal hop flavor, caramel malt. Pretty balanced tasting IPA, more flavor from the hops than malt, but not the most bitter IPA

M- Medium bodied, lower carbonation for the style, does not finish dry (kind of sits of the palate)

O- A really solid balanced IPA with nice floral, herbal, and piney flavor profile. Very drinkable

Single finger with some lacing on a golden with crimson hues body. Light citrus and hops. Very nice aroma just not very strong. Initially this one is very bitter but it mellows out some where the hops are more dynamic. The hops are well represented. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This is a very complete but simple IPA. A nice offering from rogue.

I had to try this since it uses 100% Amarillo hops.

This beer pours a light bodied somewhat tinged, orangish gold in color with a soapy one finger head. The nose is softly hoppy, with soapy characteristics as well as almost a candied malt aspect. The flavors are straight bitter. There is little else. No complexity. It drinks dry and finishes very, very bitter. The bitterness lingers too. This one is instantly not very drinkable. It's too in your face. I'd avoid this beer if I were you.
