Voodoo: Not good. Very artificial tasting. Smell was interesting, but the taste didn't live up. Slightly better than the first Rogue Voodoo brew, but not by much.

75 Minute: Very tasty, and unique. The maple addition in an IPA was interesting. It worked, but I prefer a non-maple IPA, given a choice. Didn't taste anywhere near 7.5%.

Framboise: Phenomenal. The color on the beer was amazing, and the aroma was even better. Flavor was perfectly balanced between the raspberry and the sour.

Enjoy By: Excellent. Tasted super fresh, and more hop-forward than a lot of DIPAs. Hid the ABV extremely well - could drink a lot of this without realizing I was getting wrecked. Next Enjoy By is coming to Minneapolis, so that will be awesome...

We have a few SD connections, so regularly get access to stuff from there. The Alpine growler was obviously from there (LOVE Alpine), as were a couple of the RRs. I think that was it for this round, though. One of the guys is living in Tacoma, so has access to other west coast stuff...

Yeah, it was amazing. We've been trying to do the RR sour horizontal for a while, and finally got it done. We also had an '08 - '12 Surly Darkness vertical, but decided to put that one off for another time...
