Notes: As farmers and brewers we understand the importance of fresh ingredients. That's why our favorite time of year is harvest time, when the ingredients are their freshest and beer is just begging to be brewed. To make this beer, we cut down fresh Rogue Farms hops, load them into a truck and rush them posthaste over to our brewery on the coast. When the hops arrive they go straight into the brew, still wet from the farm. The effort pays off in this hazy, fruity, wet-hop laden imperial IPA. Enjoy!

Very hazy gold with three fingers of cream color head. Swathes of lace appear as the levels drop.
Smell is green dank fresh hops.
Taste is dank green fresh hops with some tropical fruit and bready malts.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. The finish is dry and lightly bitter.
Overall a tasty hazy DIPA. Canned on 10/05/21.

Can: Poured a hazy/cloudy dirty yellow color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of hoppy floral undertones with some unrefined grainy malt notes is OK. Taste is a mix of hoppy floral undertones with some unrefined grainy malt notes with some residual sugar notes. Body is full with good carbonation. Interesting but something is off with the malt bill.

Haven't tried much US beer since Covid, which is sad. But there is simply not as many new products coming in.
But here is one,
Rogue has not been one of my favourite US breweries however, though this is only their fourth beer I am tasting. There is just something old school-ish about them and that's not necessarily a good thing. Anyway, this pours hazy amber, which sent my maltly senses tingling. That is also not a good thing. I don't particularly like the malty West Coast IPA style. The pour leaves a small head, which is lovely. The nose is malt and fruit, the latter offsetting things. And there it is. The malt comes through strong (bad), then it gets offset by the hops and fruity tones (good), only to finish malty (bad). Still, overall not too bad, despite the malt, of which the can confesses a small amount, but I disagree. This is vastly more malty than citrusy.

Tallboy can from the LCBO; dated Sept 12 2020 and served barely chilled.

Pours a turbid orange-amber, featuring an inch-thick crown of puffy, foamy white head that melts away within a few minutes' time. It leaves behind a beautiful coat of lacing, as well as a wide, sudsy collar - looks very nice in the glass. Lots of muddled tropical/citrus fruitiness on the nose - there's mango, passion fruit, cantaloupe, tangerine and grapefruit, in addition to hints of berries, apricot, wheaty, bready malts and kind bud... do kids these days still call it that?

Very fruity, but also fairly sweet; plenty of variety in the hop profile, too. There's grapefruit, passion fruit, mango, tangerine and melon, backed by a wheaty, bready pale malt backbone with a bit of syrupy nectar sweetness. These are joined by a spicy, dank, herbal, slightly resiny bitterness at the finish, with tropical fruitiness (passion fruit & mango) and herbal hops persisting into a somewhat boozy, syrupy-sweet aftertaste. Full in body, with low carbonation levels that don't provide much of a bite at all; feels slick and smooth in the mouth. Tossing one can back is no challenge, but it was almost more than enough for me.

Final Grade: 3.91, a B+. Rogue's Coast Haste is the first wet-hopped beer I've had this year, and I suppose it did make for a nice change of pace. I appreciate the complexity of this one, but frankly I'd prefer a little less sweetness out of a DIPA - and while I didn't necessarily mind the booze (as that tends to come with the style), when you combine that with the syrupy/sugary flavours... well, it does start to become a bit much by the end of the glass. If you're looking for something strong and hoppy but not too bitter, then this is worth checking out.

473ml can served cold into a tulip. LCBO purchase for $4.40 CDN. Canned September 12, 2020. Apparently back out of retirement, at least for the Canadian market.

Appearance - Hazy, fleshy orange colored brew with multiple fingers of long lasting off-white head. Great staying power and gorgeous beer to look at.

Smell - Mostly tropical fruit with mango, grapefruit and some pineapple leading the way, making way for lychee and a piney hint on the close as well. Nose is fairly subdued when cold, but improves considerably as it warms.

Taste - Big sweet flavors of candied mango, guava and pineapple, quite sweet and booze is well hidden. Subtle pine note comes into wards the end. The sweetness is bordering on overbearing, but otherwise quite tasty.

Mouthfeel - Medium-full bodied, good expressive carbonation. No complaints and booze is pretty well hidden.

Overall - A tasty DIPA, that leans just a bit to sweet for my tastes, but nonetheless a solid make and well worth giving a try to. The concluding pine note is a nice way to balance the beer.

Poured from a 16 oz can into a 12 oz snifter.
Straw/Orangish color with a nice 1/4" white head.
Nice citrusy resin aroma. Very excited about tasting!
Nice bitterness. Fresh hops/resin flavor. Mild bitter finish.
Overall I like this Imperial hazy, but the hops seemed to have faded a bit (Canned 9/24/19, tasted 7/27/20)

Definitely sweet with a canteloupe like taste with a malty body and mild bitterness in the finish. The alcohol tempers the sweetness nicely and the creaminess also smooths it out. Chilled other fruit flavors are more present like kiwi and dried apricot.

Because of puffy white head, a pint can emptied into a clear Imperial pint glass barely fits. There's a great IPA aroma with sharp and bitter hops in charge. The color of the brew causing this sensation is a dark and densely opaque amber. Not much lacing follows the liquid down the glass. The pronounced sweet malt taste that greets is surprising. The hoppiness is much more of the danky variety than the sharp bite the smell suggested might happen. The label told no lies by describing Coast Haste as hazy and fruity. It's not a citrus fruity, it's more like cantaloupe sweet. The taste is not bad, even as sweet as it is and it disguises the 8.6% ABV very well. Still, it's a little too sweet to make this a great IIPA. It does have a well-built body, which contributes to a very nice mouthfeel. This is a good AIIPA and if you like them sweet, a great one.

A wet-hop ale (that isn't retired) with a fun name, canned 9/29 and poured into an IPA nonic. Pours out a thick, darker gold, hazy and turbid with a creamy off-white head that laces well; moderately strong impressions of over-ripe tropical fruit bowl, mango, and grapefruit, with dankness and a substantial malt backbone that leans sweet; overall very juice-like in the nose and palate. Very smooth body leans creamy and sweet, almost too sweet; combined with the thicker mouthfeel and higher abv and sweetness this drinks like fruit puree.

16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 9/10/2019. Pours opaquely hazy deep golden/orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts. Thick foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, berries, citrus peel/zest, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, biscuit, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt notes; with big strength. Taste of big tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, biscuit, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness. Mild pine, citrus peel/rind, herbal, floral, woody, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, orange juice, red grapefruit, lemon, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, mango, honeydew melon, berries, citrus peel/zest, wood, light peppercorn/pine, wheat, cracker, white bread dough, biscuit, light honey/toast, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; with an awesome malt/bitterness balance, and no cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, and lightly sticky/resinous mouthfeel that is great. Minimal warming alcohol for 8.6%. Overall this is an excellent fresh hopped NEIPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity/tropical/fairly earthy hops and bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mildly bitter/drying finish. Great soft/silky feel. Feels like Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo. Very juicy, vibrant, and lightly dank/earthy hops; with a nice sized wheat/oat/malt backbone. Light residual sweetness with lingering resin dryness. A very enjoyable offering and impressive style example. Held up extremely well for the age.

On tap at the Rogue Pub in Issaquah, WA.

Back on the topic of older school breweries and their misadventures with aggressively contemporary styles, how it's something akin to watching your grandfather try to rap... here's Rogue trying an NEIPA

The pour is a hazy, pale yellow with a white head. Inviting, especially in the nice, stemmed glassware.

The aroma is fruity but excellently balanced. It does a surprisingly good job of squaring the NEIPA's fundamental circle: how do you make something that smells like guava nectar also smell like beer.

Only, eew, that nice and balanced aroma does not translated into a nice or balanced flavor. All throughout, it's medicinal. Like some kind of patent medicine. That's not to say it's undrinkable. But it's not good. Thick, oddly savory bitterness up front (there's the balance... it comes at a steep price), tropical fruit in the back.

With a 51 IBU, it tastes less bitter than many pale ales. I sense sweetness with a smooth finish. The high alcohol 8.6% hides in the haze. Very good, one of the best beers I’ve tasted.

Pours a hazy orange with fine, off-white head.

Smell is piney and citrusy with notes of orange marmalade, melon and a hint of sweetness.

Taste is rich and a bit boozy, with notes of apricot, citrus, pine and a fairly strong bitterness and a hint of dank melon.

Mouthfeel is medium, soft and well carbonated.

Overall, a nice DIPA, just a bit too boozy.

Poured a cloudy yellow body with minimal head and no lace. Aroma is tropical like pineapple and mango with some citric notes as well. Smooth, medium body, some fruity pineapple/mango/tropical fruit sweetness with a smattering of dank, citric zippiness in the background for a little balance.

This would win a prize for "most murkiest," but it also has a lovely whipped cream head in the IPA glass. Delightful aroma with apples, mango, and apricot. Fruit cocktail is the flavor, astoundingly sweet is the sensation, though it goes well with the higher alcohol content and the eye-opening acidity. Flavors of mango nectar, papaya, and sour tangerine. From the 16 oz can purchased at the beer store in the far Northwest.

Rogue Ales "Coast Haze"
One Pint can "CANNED ON 12:16:14 09/16/19"
$4.49 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Notes via stream of consciousness: WOW! It's hazy. It's "milkshake" hazy. It's beyond muddy water. As to the color I guess I'd call it golden tan. The head is a densely foamy cap of off-white. The aroma is quite bright and much more appealing than the appearance. It's citrusy and tropical (yes, I know that citrus is a tropical fruit, but I think you get what I'm saying), as well as floral and lightly piney and herbal. I'm finding papaya, orange, peach, mango, and a hint of pine, all bolstered by the sweet malt below. The flavor follows with more complexity, but also with a bit of overlapping that leaves it a little bit muddled. I'm getting passion fruit, papaya, orange, pineapple, sweetened blueberry, pine, herbs (thyme, rosemary, dull dried oregano), dried apricot, apple, white grape, and soft peach. As noted, everything is kind of jumbled but some things do stand out, and if you just pay attention and keep tasting you'll find everything, and probably even more. The bitterness, at 51 IBUs according to the label, is enough to for the most part balance the sweetness of the malt, and in my opinion this comes across like a double IPA but with a stronger aroma than most. How strong is this? 8.65 alcohol by volume; well that works out then doesn't it? Of course it doesn't have the 60 IBUs to match the BJCP requirements of an "Imperial IPA" but it's close, and I guess that just makes it a little bit of a double New England style "juicy" IPA. In the mouth it's seemingly full bodied with residual proteins, and it's quite smooth across the palate. So, how much did the "wet hops" contribute to this? I have no idea, but at the same time I don't think it matters as it's really enjoyable and easy to drink. Where I think it might have a fault is in head retention and lacing. Both were OK, and I know alcohol can cut down on both, but I defintely have a "beer clean" glass here and it should have looked better. In the end I'd buy it again and I'll recommend it for anyone who likes hops.
