3.1/5  rDev -9.4%
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

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.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

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.

Bought locally.

It pours a 24K gold, has a 2 finger head of foam that does well with the lacing.

It has a grassy smell to it along with some earthy malty notes and grain

I can't say I taste any grassy hops; a mild, hard to describe bitterness, with an earthy maltiness that hits my tastebuds like umm..rotten fruit? Rotten vegetables? Man, I can't go on with this one. It's the drain for yee.

750 ml bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired this big silver ceramic bottle from the local beer store. The name of this beer is actually just Rogue Integrity Ale, according to the Rogue website, so someone should fix that. Anyway, it's been a little while since I had anything from Rogue, but my expectations are good.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter glass.

A - Pours just over two fingers of fluffy soapy off-white head on top of a beautiful light honeyed orange colored body. Looks pretty nice.

S - Smell is pretty light. Honeyed graham cracker malts, hint of creaminess, & a hint of herbal hop presence, but this is mostly just a malt bomb.

T - Taste follows the nose: bready pilsner malt taste, some honey, graham crackers, biscuit, and faint citrus / earthy herbal hoppiness. Again, mostly a straight forward malt showcase.

M - Feel is smooth and creamy, with good frothiness, and good duration of flavor. Dry, bready honeyed malt lingering long and hard on the palate. Light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, I was expecting more hops, and more complexity with this one, but it's a simple well-made pale ale. Definitely seems a little bit tame and "normal", especially by Rogue's standards, but it was a solid drinking experience. Glad to have tried it.

Rogue Integrity Ale ---3.5/5
