Poured a hazy orange-amber with a thin short-lived off white head and sticky lacing.

Smells of sweet malts and caramel, a touch of floral frangrance from the hops. Faint alcohol scent also.

Taste is smooth and sweet with a faint hint of fig and melon and a lingering hoppy finish with just a touch of mouth-drying tannins at the end. Alcohol warmth rises up to the nose late but is mild.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy with faint carbonation that seems to dissipate quickly.

Not too heavy and sure goes down easy, but drinkability may be an issue with ABV around 7%.

This one has grown on me over the years. While I don't think it's particularly complex, it is quite delicious and a beer I keep on hand frequently. Overall a fine brew, another classic from the folks at Rogue.

Pours a deep coppery orange color with a firm white head about an inch thick that leaves a nice lace on the glass. Aromas consist of sweet caramel, some toasty malts, and a bit of zesty hop. Initial flavors consist of a bit of citrus flavoring followed by a wide arrange of malts which leave a multitude of flavors ranging from toffee, to biscuit, some caramel sweetness, and a doughy bread like flavor. There is also a nice estery yeast flavor in the mix which really adds some complex flavors to the brew. The finish is quite citrusy and zesty from a nice strong hop finish. Overall this brew is light to medium bodied with a refreshingly crisp carbonation that is almost biting on the tongue.

Hazy copper color with a medium head which recedes quickly and leaves some nice lacing. Slightly sweet malty aroma with some herbal hops. Nice malty flavor with some interesting notes- a bit buttery on my first sip, perhaps some dark fruit. Medium to full bodied and very well carbonated. Pretty good beer. A bit heavier than it seems at first but still quite drinkable.
