750 ml bottle into signature pint glass; no bottle dating, but was a recent release. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, grape, honey, biscuit, cracker, floral, grass, and herbal earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, grape, honey, biscuit, cracker, floral, grass, and herbal earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, grape, honey, biscuit, cracker, floral, grass, and herbal earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of malt, hop, and fruity yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, bready, and moderately crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good blonde ale. All around good balance and robustness of hop, malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Opened 1/6/15... seeing as how this was brewed in 2013, it's probably well over a year old. Here we go...

A: Pours a copper color with 2 fingers of fluffy head that slowly fades down to a decent cap that leaves some nice lacing

S: Herbal, tea-like hops and apple stand out the most. Plenty of general fruitiness as well, plus some light maltiness and sweetness. Not half bad given the age

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the tea-like herbal hops plus the apple notes, as well as some grape notes as well. Fruitiness comes in along with a wave of maltiness that provides a light sweetness that cuts the hops. Finishes with a very light bitterness and a bit of a musty quality (my guess is some oxidation from the age)

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: Surprisingly holding up great with the age, which is a rarity with lower abv brews like this. Very drinkable and approachable, with nothing offensive or off-putting. Time to crack it open if you're still holding on to it for whatever reason

Bomber from Libation Station.

A: Foamy orange off white head that pours a kind of copper color. Appealing, but rather standard.

S: Malts leading with faint hops. Notes of caramel linger.

T: Well-balanced APA between malts and hops. Very drinkable and tasty, but nothing very memorable or offensive.

M: Very well balanced between smoothness and carbonation. Medium bodied. Again, above average, but nothing that exudes the flashiness of the bottle.

An above average, very drinkable, but run of the mill beer. At $6.99 for a 22 oz, it's just way overpriced. There are plenty of $8-$10 6 pack options that are offer much the same experience.

Poured from the metallic silver bottle into a shaker pint glass. Darker than blonde, a light ruddy amber color with a rich, billowing off-white head. Aroma quite mellow and downplayed, sweet honey malts, a little graininess, dry pears, very faint pine. Initial sips closely match the nose, honeyed breakfast cereal-like grains that are perhaps a tad coarse and husky, maybe some burnt caramel, but as one proceeds some grapefruit and gummy candy flavors develop nicely. Rather low carbonation and although the body is rather thin, the whole thing translates as a little syrupy on my tongue. Finish is grains sloshed with grape juice, ends abruptly. I don't know. This brew is a different direction for Rogue, less aggressive hopping and more dry grain that is usually the case, with some mouthfeel issues. Too thin and undercarbonated yet with considerable residual sweetness that is just kinda left there on its own, insufficient hops providing meager backup.

The beer pours orange honey golden to light copper in color. There is over an inch of thick, creamy, foamy off-white head. It does leave rings of sticky lacing down the glass.

The aroma is malty, malted barley, touch of honey sweet, orange, a touch spicy/herbal.

The taste is fairly true to the aromas, hitting all the same notes, and then barreling to a surprisingly bitter finish, fairly dry.

It drinks smooth, medium-bodied, with refreshing, but not overdone, carbonation.
