Notes taken on 06/29/2014
A: Darker caramel amber body with some decent clarity to it. Big heady tan froth billows up out of the glass with enduring hang time. Lots of sticky lace scatters across the glass after each sip.
S: Bright lemony pine hops in the nose with some spice and a touch of herbals underneath. There is a dash of ephemeral malt bread to it but this one is mostly hops and fairly unique or experimental if you will. Lemony spice and herbs. Pretty nice nose and better than I was expecting from Rogue.
T: Taste is a touch more floral than the nose with a big lemony-lime citrus flavor presence. I get some spice and earthy herbals rounding out those hop flavors and there is just a whisper of malt sweetness to the brew. Good and resinous with a nice bitter bite on it and the alcohol completely masked throughout. This is very nice and all about those homegrown experimental hops. Better than most all the other Rogue beers I have had.
M: The mouth feel stays light on the palate with a nice creamy smooth texture. Has a peppery bitterness midway that lingers for a bit. All in all a nice clean balance here.
D: Very drinkable with a nice hoppy punch and some new and exciting flavors to try out from Rogue for once. Definitely exceeded my expectations. Hats off to the farmers.
