12/21/04 @ the old bay new brunswick, nj
lovely deep and consistent red, nice lacing (not other worldly but very nice), the lace did play nicely along the sides of the glass (pint).
oh man.. (cartman voice) "oh schweet hops ohhh". this is crazy, this nose made me nearly drool, I kid you not. this was out of a pint glass, in a goblet this would be like dumping kournikova to get angelina jolie ! man alive this nose is like sierra nevada (remember the 1st time you had it) on CRACK. wonderfull bouquet, reminded me of the Hazed and Infused beer except this one backs up the bark
if there is a better red for hop heads, preach it to me brother! it has the bite and hook of good IPAs but that red subtlety, a little spice thrown in for good measure but spice just short enough of say sierra nevada's celebration. session beer? hell, pull up a chair and let's get some Hold 'Em goin' on. The carbonation is just right, enough to tap you on the shoulder, not enough to make you burp like your dad at weddings.
get me another beer wench ! they didnt have growlers available.. godamn it ! There were other interesting brews on tap (not many as the old bay has really gone down hill) but this one was captivating. The old dog has learned some new tricks and won't go down so easily.. Rogue continues to impress as they become in a wierd way the elder statesmen of the new wave of american micros.

330mL bottle, BB date June 2014. Got it just in time!
A - attractive burgundy colour, pours a thick frothy head that fades into a lumpy pale brown lacing.
S - floral (lavender) hops and resin, with a strong honey/molasses whiff.
T - dry hopping is apparent straight away - strong hoppy bitterness with flavours of pine and faint caramel and roasted malt backdrop. Bitterness slightly edges the malts in this one.
M - medium carbonation, dry texture, light to medium body. crisp finish.
O - nice mix of roasted malts and dry hopping, would easily drink again.
