Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 03.25.14.

A: Somewhat opaque, milky caramel color. 1 finger head that receded quickly. Great lacing.

S: Strong, sweet caramel.

T: Caramel dominates. Has lingering red apple. Some flower on the back end.

M: Creamy smooth. It floats on the tongue and fades away slowly. Beautiful.

O: The creaminess is apparent first, then a wash of caramel takes over. The sweetness fades and then a slight bitterness comes on until fading into a red apple and flower back end that lingers. This is a very well balanced and fantastically smooth beer. Unfortunately, I won't ever buy anything from Rogue again after what I've heard about them, but that shouldn't affect my rating of this beer.

Rating: A

A: Pours a clear golden with a thick foamy head that holds together well (3/3)
S: Citrusy hop profile balances a pale malty nose with a little bit of alcohol (8/12)
T: Fruity up front (mostly banana and raisin), light malt in the middle, with a bitter finish that fades off the tongue within a few seconds(16/20)
M: Reasonably bubbly with a dry finish that covers the whole tongue (5/5)
O: Quite drinkable. Nothing overpowering in the nose or the taste. A nice blend of many different notes. (7/10)
39/50
