look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

eyes...
quite the foamy bastard, almost three fingers of slightly off white head, clingy head made up of nice micro bubbles, a good amount of carbonation is present which of course feeds the head, slight orange hue and clear, pretty standard to above average fare

nose...
somewhat musty, mild caramel malts, very mild spice from the hops

taste etc...
pretty mellow, a mix of some spice, some sweetness, the malt profile is probably what jumps up first, Am I supposed to be wooed by the subtlety here... or bored by it ? this is so underwhelming on so many levels, just real middle of the road, a nice malt flavor and a hint of the hops really...

verdict?
disappointing. I don't mind going with a non psycho style for an anniversary ale but this is just average at best (771 characters)

Not the same as the old Integrity Ale,this is brewed as an American Golden Ale.Pours into an imperial nonic a clear medium golden with a sticky one finger white head atop that leave globs of lace as it settles slowly.Fruity malts in the nose along with more malty biscuit,leafy hops linger.Sweet caramel malts with light toast,a bit of soapiness and light leafy hops in the finish.This to me is much more malt driven than usual for Rogue,not bad. (446 characters)

Poured a hazy amber with a creamy semi-white laced head. There really wasn't anything in the nose for this one. Couldn't distinguish any hops, malt, citrus, etc
The taste was ok, not hoppy or malty as the nose sort of made you figure that.
But what I REALLY liked about this beer was that the mouthful was ENORMOUS. Full, inviting, enjoyable, filling each part of your mouth with good honest beer
That alone made you come back for another sip (442 characters)

750ml silver painted bottle. As usual the label is bravado-heavy, with absolutely no mention of what the beer inside this marketing trope is. And why is the name mashed together here, when the otherwise useless label displays it as otherwise (ya know, in standard English?)

This beer pours a hazy medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of foamy, rocky, and mildly frothy ecru head, which leaves some drooping limestone arch lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of biscuity pale malt, middling orange citrus notes, understated earthy field honey, and grassy, herbal hops. The taste is semi-sweet caramel malt, a touch of biscuity breadiness, floral, soapy, and grassy hops, weakly fading honey, and some meekly lingering orchard fruitiness.

The bubbles are light, and mostly just plainly and agreeably frothy, the body on the lee side of medium weight, and smooth with very little other caveats, good or bad. It finishes barely off-dry, the grainy malt holding tight, while the mixed fruitiness waxes and wanes, and the weakly bitter leafy and grassy hops peter out much more consistently.

Another Rogue offering where the outside turns out to be way more sassy than the insides - which here involve a basic APA - decently malty, and yet a bit too underwhelmingly hoppy. A hard to explain criticism, as usual for this brewer - the quality isn't lacking, it's just hardly up to the price and overbearing machismo of, well everything about what I see before me now. (1,493 characters)

It's a pretty beer. A burnt coppery orange beer, not dark, but dark enough to be opaque. Very fluffy head, tiny bubbles with just a few larger bubbles around the edge. Half a finger thing, bright white, and retains well. Thin lace eventually fades away.

Very malty nose with some floral and fruity notes. Think Germany with the pils malt/savory floral hop scents.

There's nothing special about the taste. It's not that it's bad, but you can find this anywhere. Very pilsnerish taste. Took points away because this is supposed to be an anniversary beer. Disappointing.

Slightly better than a macro. Light bodied, mostly bitter. Probably a thirst quencher, but doesn't work for me. Grainy feel, reminds me of rice adjuncts.

A total swing and a miss...and for an anniversary beer. Poor beer by Rogue. (820 characters)

Enjoyed from the bottle in a snifter. This blonde pours a hazy blondish amber with a firm white head that lingers a good while till it dissipates to a thin layer of foam and a thick ring. Nose of herbal and floral hops, sweet malts, some lemon and apple notes as well. Flavors are up front bitter sweet with waves of sweet light caramel malts crashing into bittering hops with some notes of lemon zest, green apples, and floral hops rounding it all out into a rather approachable brew that finishes lightly bitter and moderately dry. Smooth quaffable mouth feel. Nice. (573 characters)
