3.63/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz bottle with no freshness date. I poured this into a large Carlsberg pint glass, you know the one's with a wide opening and a more slender body.

A: I was very impressed by the appearance. The hazy copper-red body was capped by a huge fluffy tan head which laced very nicely. The head stayed for a while, eventually coming down to a thin lace on top. The body's color was orange-brown on the edges, and through the haze, very little carbonation was present.

S: At first, the smell is dominated by hops, which could be categorized as piney and/or citrusy. But keep smelling and you will get the very deep and strong malt character that is obviously this beer's backbone. It has notes of caramel and bread, like a bread pudding.

T: I was not sure what to expect from the taste, but I had higher hopes I guess. I wanted to call this beer well-balanced at first, since I got this bitter/tart malty taste. However, I feel like the beer was confused about what to be, not well-balanced. The "dry hopping" gave the beer its immediate hop smell, and I think it contributed to the somewhat timid hop flavor. It should have been more...something. Whatever, that's not my job. (Not that this is either)

M: It is smooth and medium to light bodied. The carbonation makes this beer somewhat "crisp". It feels very fresh and good, but the beer could have been fuller, or more chewy.

D: I enjoyed drinking this beer and I will enjoy the other three that I have, but I am not sure that I would ever buy this beer again, for it is not anything to write home about. It is one of the more mediocre beers from Rogue, which brews some pretty amazing stuff.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

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.
