4.1/5 rDev +3.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 22oz bomber into a .5L stein.
Appearance: Mildly agressive pour yielded a large 2 to 3 finger head. Excellent head retention with modest lacing. Nice red clayish color with continuing carbonation bubbles rising from the bottom.
Smell: Smells about 50/50 malt to hops. Sweet malt aromas comming through that hide a strong prescence of hops. Light grassy and citrus notes comming through with a good dose of grapefruit.
Taste: WOW!! this is the first Rogue beer I have ever had.. yess yes i know im a noob. Tastes like refreshing grapefruit, citrus with a slight bitterness at the end. Tastes of moderate malt covering up some pretty obvious hops. This beer its tricky.
Mouthfeel: Continued carbonation is comming through on the mouthfeel, but in a good way. It rolls smoothly around my mouth and is not overpowering at all.
Drinkability: Its a very delicious beer. Its got some nice hops as the backbone with some nice citrus and grassy notes. Its a good beer, nothing to go too crazy over, but a definate win over Sam Adams and Sierra Nevada. A bit more $$ than those, but its a better version of SA for sure and has a nice continued aftertaste that is sweet and grassy.
Serving type: bottle
