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.

St. Rogue Red has a very thick, frothy, off-white head, a hazy, rust-red appearance, noticeable gray chunks floating about, lots of bubble streams, and heavy lacing left on the sides of the glass. The aroma is sharp, sweet, bready, and of hop resin. Taste is of sweet bread crust, mild bitterness, and full malt. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, and soft. St. Rogue Red finishes semi-dry, easy going, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is really nice!

A: Pours a hazy, glowing red with a thick, fluffy beige head that sticks around for some time.
S: Aromas of lemony, peppery hops, leather, caramel, toffee, nougat, and roasted nuts are most noticeable on the nose.
T: Notes of herbs, lemon, lime, bitter orange, caramel, cream, nougat, roasted nuts, toffee, and leather coat the palate. The finish is bitter and oily with herb, lemon, caramel, and leather flavors dominating.
M: Medium-bodied and initially chalky and dry, though it turns somewhat oily on the finish. Crisp, intense carbonation aids in emphasizing both hop bitterness and malt heft. Filling, but also quite drinkable.
O: A good, reliable amber/red ale, though I feel it could use a few tweaks. As is, the hop bitterness is a little overpowering, especially on the entry, thus rendering the overall balance and integration of malt and hop flavors a little off throughout.
