look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Color an orange-amber - thick and cloudy. Pours a weak head with minimal lacing.

Aroma rather weak as well, I detect malt with a sweet citrus background, but that's about it.

Flavor a wonderful hop/fruity/malt and pine clash. Perfectly balanced! Back pallette is bombarded with a bitter hop that fades a bit as malt and fruit - perhaps apple - collide, but lingers in aftertaste. Hint of pine is a nice touch that disappears almost immediately. The coupled fruit and bitter hop taste is really unusual yet quite appealing!

Mouthfeel is perfect for the beer's taste. Wonderful viscocity, of strong texture, but not thick.

Drinkibility is excellent. Alcohol volume good for style and goes down quickly leaving one wanting.

I've had this beer before but I fogot how good it is. This is a fine piece of work from Rogue and I'm already looking forward to my next.
