Color is a deep amber, nearly brown, with a one finger high head of nice solid thick ivory hued tight bubbly frothness. Smell is some caramel malts, roasty a bit with some pretty strong wild grass field and floral hops. Taste is a whacky balance of the malts and hops, the unevenness is a little weird in the taste - roasty caramel malts bittered floral hops, but each sip brings out something a little different each time. Feel is medium bodied getting a little thin, but not much, unwanted bitterness thats a bit much and uneven into the finish. Not quite a Rogue standard it seems, but is forgivable.

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.
