Wow. This one was beer that stood out from the rest at the Rogue brewery. As I sat and sipped on Brutal Bitter, one of my all-time favorites, a tiny slurp of the wifey's St. Rogue awakened an unsurpassed hop-craving. I called for a pint: this is the review that resulted.
Looking the hybrid between amber and brown ale, St. Rogue red sits in the glass looking instantly devourable. The nose is spectacularly hoppy, running the gamut from citrusy, grapefruity, lemony, and more than anything, shockingly reminiscent of when I stuck me head in a bag of whole-leaf hops in York England.
I am suddenly back on the malting floor, sucking the flowery acids from the flakes in my mouth.
The gummy malt mouthfeel is perfectly balanced by the late-addition hops and deliberately leveling dry-hop. This was one fantastic beer.

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.
