What the brewer says

“In a bold col­lab­o­ra­tion with Mother Na­ture, we grow our own va­ri­eties of aroma hops at Rogue Farms in In­de­pen­dence, Ore­gon. Brew­mas­ter John Maier metic­u­lously se­lected and blended ten va­ri­eties of our aroma hops to cre­ate this be­he­moth of an IPA.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Piney and dank hops aroma, some bread-crust malt, grape-skin must, banana es­ters, and as it warms: or­ange pith, le­mon, woody, and a huge spruce-tip berry-like char­ac­ter on retronasal.” Fla­vor: “Earthy and dank hops fla­vors. Fairly piney. No­tice­able caramel malt. Some dried-fruit es­ters (raisin, fig). A slight min­eral char­ac­ter. Some no­tice­able boozi­ness and al­co­holic warmth. Fin­ishes on the sweeter side and dis­tinctly bit­ter.” Over­all: “A big, sweet, malty, dank, and piney IPA that seems to strad­dle the line be­tween IPA and Amer­i­can bar­ley­wine.”
