3.38/5  rDev -11.3%

I am getting down to the last couple of these in my collection. This pours a clear orange gold with a lot of head. This is clearly a live beer. The bottle carbonation is great a stron long fizz.

This starts with a clear hop odor. The taste begins with carmel then moves to hop. There is a nice hop aftertaste that is quick to drop off.

This beer has a soft quick mouth. This is one that I could drink all night. Wish I had gotten more. However at 18 months is is reaching the end of its life. My memory says that it was quite good on tap and the early bottles had a stronger hop hit.

I had it with Dijon Lamb as my easter dinner drink. Cut through the mustard taste very well.

4.15/5  rDev +8.9%

This new limited edition beer from Rogue pours out a dark golden colour with a nice, white head of foam. The aromas are of fresh grassy hops and nice background malts. There is a definate "earthy" flavor to this beer, and the finish is definitely quite bitter, and grassy in its flavors. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than I would have liked, but it is still decent. The drinkability is very good, as you can drink a glass in a few minutes :-)

3.9/5  rDev +2.4%

A cloudy reddish copper color. It is well carbonated and pours with a good sized head. There is a grassy hop aroma that is fairly subdued. It has a wonderfully hoppy flavor, with a continued minty grassiness in the finish. Quite interesting. This beer is fairly dry, light bodied with restrained maltyness. The grassiness from the fresh hops is what is out of the ordinary, and there is a definite minty contribution from the Newport hops.
