A. Strong head long lasting, amber color but not the best looking amber I've seen.
S. Hoppy nose with mild floral accents.
T. Strong on bitterness with the hops. Hoppy amber, almost overpowering. Not very well balanced in my opinion.
M. Rather full bodied amber ale.
D. Was left wanting to have another, but two seem to be plenty. Kind of filling.
I have tried several American Amber ales recently, and this one just wasn't nearly as well balanced. Was a little disapointed becuase I have really enjoyed other Rogue varieties.

3.7/5 rDev -3.6%

I absolutely love the color of this amber with its bright brassy highlights and sturdy hue. It loses points, though, with an unimpressive head of this thin fleeting fizz and a ton of clinging carbonation bubbles.
The nose is malty, nutty, maybe pecans and a bit of grain. There's hints of roast and a bit of tea leaf.
The flavors are more roasted, more nutty, and filled with pecans. The roasted flavor is dry and the malts are filled with barley, tea leaf and grain.
The feel is exceptionally dry but also thin and watery.
This is a good example of the style with all the profile pieces I want in an Amber. My only regret, and it's small, is that the thin watery feel doesn't allow the flavor to truly blossom.
