Pours a hazed & effervescent amber with a thumb of pearl colored head. Never totally clears, but has stellar lacing & great head retention

S: Biscuttty malt, grapefruit, lemons & floral hops, a little bit of leafy hops as well

T: Follows the nose, some dryness & mineral hops as well. A little pineapple sneaks in as this warms, orange peel as well. Finishes with a little bit of biscuitty malt, floral hops & a nice amount of citrus hop kiss

MF: Medium body, light carbonation, lovely balance, perhaps a bit gritty

Drinks super easy, bought this 2+weeks ago & forgot about it; kicking myself, as I'm sure this was even better, maybe slightly off style, but in a good way...

Not been a huge booster of these guys over the last 5 years, but they are starting to win me back

Beer has a pinkish hue with a one - two finger head. Smell was all grapefruit as was the flavor. Beer seemed a bit watery to me - not typical Rogue body. Good, but so many other Rogue beers are better, I do not expect to revisit this one.
