Pours a turbid orange-yellow with an ample head. Decent lacing.

Smells sweet and bready, caramelly, with some tangerine and a boquet of flowers. Smells fantastic.

Taste is malty and citrusy--it's sweet but in a clean way. It's very much like the smell, with the bready caramel and citrusy notes. Put simply: It tastes great and the flavor improves as it warms as more maltiness and bitterness comes into play with every sip with leafty hops and toffee and a hint of ripe anjou pear.

Wonderfully smooth, full mouthfeel and good carbonation.

Dangerously drinkable at this ABV.

A solid offering from rogue.

Pours a copper on the verge of amber with a tannish head that doesn't retain well but leaves some lacing.

Smells quite nice, with light malt aromas and a faint hop presence.

Flavor is of a smooth maltiness and a mildly citrucy and spicy hop finish that balances and rounds the brew out.

Medium bodied, prickly carbonation.

It seems like everything in this beer is in balance, quite a pleasure to drink. Rogue picked a good beer to be their "flagship" brew.
