650ml brown bomber bottle; painted label; no freshness date.

Pours a deep garnet coloured beer, crowned with a biege foam head; decent head retention. Sweet-ish/candied/fruit aroma, with a malty base and light floral hops.

Smooth mouthfeel, very light in the body; even a bit watery. Malty, but not in a big way. More of a light sweetness (subdued caramel, touch of roasted) and dominant grain character that's both coarse and dry on the palate. Crisp, and even more so with the beer's fizzy carbonation that provides a good palate cutting edge. Hops have a slightly woody/herbal note about them with a bit of sharp cheese thrown in and a citric/bitter base. Hop and grain tannins mass to form the finish, which is rather dry and a tad bitty.

Not a bad brew, a bit unbalanced, lacking and average; leaning heavily towards to the hop character. Malty aroma is deceiving, too. Overall not one of Rogue's best, but certainly drinkable and appealing here and there. Worth a try, but don't expect a lot from this beer.

3.68/5  rDev -2.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: 22 oz brown bomber with no freshness date. List of ingredients and specs on the brew are on the label.

Appearance: Thick yet cropped bubbly head does a fine job of sticking to the glass, rusty amber hue shows a mild chill haze.

Smell: Mild malty aroma with notes of toasted grain and sweetness, some hop and yeast as well as fruitiness is in the back.

Taste: Sturdy medium body and smooth carbonation. Raw but rounded maltiness, toasty with husk undertones. Mild fruitiness with signs of yeast, hops are there and balance more than anything else at first. Flavours from the hops are modest but broad though the citric flavour is light with more piney notes on top. More lazy toasted malt flavour linger in the finish with some residual sweetness and hop flavour.

Notes: A decent red ale, actually it is quite tasty in a laid back way though I like its alternate ego “Dry Hop Red” which is the tapped version that is dry-hopped to the hilt. I found this to be a perfect pairing with my Hell’s Fire Beef Stew.

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.

12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep reddish copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, light toffee, and floral/toast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant amber ale. Good balance of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
