WTF!? I figured by the name "Single Malt" that this would be a malty brew, but I was surprised again.
This is a hazy gold color. Definatley unfiltered.
This is one of the best smelling beers I have come across. It is super cleansing. It's like a palate cleanser for your nose. I smell a garden full of flowers, pizza dough, and environmentally friendly cleaning fluid (because it is a friendly cleaner smell). The hop aroma is tremendously on the floral side, I have smelled candles that smell like this.
Oh no, then the taste is like, Hops Hops Hops, Hops hops. I get no malt, damn it. The name is misleading. I get pine and water with bunches of hop oils in it. America needs to calm down with the hop obsession. Really dry taste, and a hint of grapefruit juice. I have a hard time identifying flavors in overly hopped beers.
It feels like Sprite with all sugar and syrupy sensations removed and replaced with grass.
Sorry Rogue, this one isn't doin' it for me.

Bought a bottle of this from the Rogue Garage Sale at the Rogue brewpub near Portland State University.
I opted for this over two of the other BYO Rogues present at the sale because I prefer a straight ale over a rye or a black lager.
Pours a honey yellow with a good medium think white head and decent lacing.
The aroma is pleasant - nice and floral; however, the malt really comes through and colors the whole scent. The same can be said of the flavor. At first taste straight from the fridge, the malts seemed really downplayed. It came across as a nice light and floral golden ale with the Revolution hops really shining through. As the beer began to warm up, the Dare malt began to show its face; very biscuity. The after taste reminds me vaguely of a Lagunitas IPA.
This beer is super drinkable. A nice beer to have on hot summer day (like today). Not very interesting, but that's probably the idea with a SMASH like this. If I could find this for $2.00 again, I'd buy it.

I had this on draft at Mellow Mushroom while waiting patiently for the Mrs. It poured a hazy golden color, I didn't realize it was a blonde ale given then name when I ordered it, so that came as a bit of a surprise. The taste was floral almost under yeast and malts, and was actually quite nice. There was decent lacing on the glass, but not a ton of staying power. Good stuff.
