Another AUD$18 outlay to try a highly rated Rogue beer (sigh).
Pours a pure rich cloudy orange with a fluffy white head that reduces to a clean lacing. Little carbonation. Herbaly citric explosion on the nose. A little more american like in hop profile. Lots of rough hoppy goodness also. Clean bitterness for a 59 IBU monster. Not just straight bitterness, but more of a bitterness profile that transforms in your mouth. Although this beer contains a single hop (crystal), the hop profile is quite complex - love it!
Focus is squarely on hops instead of the malt, but there is a decent backbone there - maybe not rounded enough but bloody good
Another splendid ale from Rogue.
