3.8/5  rDev +1.1%

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a nice slightly dark orangey amber. Head was a nice thick frothy dirty white color. It clung just a bit, and was made of big bubbles. Small streams of carbonation rose from the bottom. Aroma had a hint of sweetness, slightly earthy floral, with a bit of hoppy bitterness. Taste started off robusty malty with a bit of honey, but then switched to a hoppy bitter quickly. Felt great in the mouth. Coated very well, and was nicely carbonated. Overall was a great beer. But it was a bit expensive for what it was, beyond being first growth, nothing worth the cost.

Poured a deep hazed burnt orange color with a very tight formed one finger clingy head that left broken chunks of lace behind as it settled into a creamy mass.A mix of caramel malt and spicey hop in the nose,I actually found the malt to be more prevelent than the hop.Flavors are very nicely balanced with the hops playing a bigger role,caramel/biscuit sweetness at the onset with a sharp and spicy hop kick in a lingering finish.A nice quaffing pale ale,very well balanced.

Appearance – This is a beautiful, muddy brown in color with just the slightest hint of orange. The head exploded out of the bottle but once settled became a nice, lingering, off-white pillow top.

Smell – The hop profile is modest but shows some depth and the lightly toasted malt provides perfect balance. There are some really nice citrus notes in here. Everything smells high quality.

Taste – The hops really come on strong at the taste. This is a more like an AIPA than an APA. The malt backbone though is no joke. The big, semi-sweet caramel and toasted bread keep the big hops in check.

Mouthfeel – This is the biggest APA by far I’ve ever had. It’s damn near full-bodied and oily slick in the cheeks. There’s a big bitterness to this one as well.

Drinkability – This is a serious big beer example of a classic American style. It went down very well but a full bomber will take a while to consume.

In a mug, this beer was a pretty cherry amber color. It had a thick tan head that lingered well, and left a bit of lace.
Mostly citrus aroma. Some sweet malt and caramel.
Grapefruit taste. Sweet, biscuity, caramel. A bit of herbal hops late.
This was a nice, medium-bodied beer. Very pleasant, will drink it again.

Bottle pours a murky orange amber body with a large offwhite head. Retention is good and lots of sticky lacing is left on the glass.

Aroma is caramel, vague orchard fruit, grapefruit, pine, and a hint of grassiness.

Mouthfeel has a creamy medium body and plenty of carbonation.

Taste is well balanced, overall. Hopping is aggressive for Rogue. Lots of grapefruit, pine, and grassy bitterness. No significant Pacman yeast presence that has wearied me on many other Rogue brews. Caramel malt sweetness provides a solid base but doesn't intrude. Clean and even finish.

Touted as 100% Oregon ingredients, this is one of Rogue's better offerings. Not a world beater, but solid and very drinkable.

Freshness Date: None

A: Amber syrup topped off with an inch of tan foam. Curtain like lace on the glass.

S: Caramel and sugar sweetness. There is also a touch of honey also. Then comes leaves, earth, and floral bitterness.

T: The palate is balanced sporting sweetness and bitterness in ample amounts. The malt brings the most interest: syrupy sweetness, caramel, brown sugar, and hints of honey. The sweetness if lathered on fresh bread. The bitterness is earthy and floral with a hint of citrus.

M: Medium feel and extra-syrupy with moderate carbonation.

O: Akin to fresh farmer's market produce, this "grow your own" Rogue Ale does a bit of everything. Leaning toward the barleywine style, this ale excels in the malt category with some decent hop support. Would like to experience more grow you own ales, as this one is good but needs a bit of polishing.

The beer pours an orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee and earthy hops. The flavor is citrus and earthy hops with some caramel and toffee malts. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A good beer, but not as good as some of the Chatoe Rogue black lager.

650mL bottle from the LCBO. Had this on tap a few times and so I picked up a bomber to review.

Poured into a tall nonic glass. Surprisingly dark caramel in colour, nearly opaque, with a sturdy inch of off-white foam that produces nice sheets of lace. Nice looking brew, though hardly fitting of being called a "pale" ale.

Nose is caramel, cracker/biscuit, grapefruit and floral hops.

Surprisingly malty APA with loads of bitterness to the finish. Sweet malt, caramel, grapefruit, hop cone, floral hops. Could call this an IPA at the higher ABU, but still an impressive brew.

Thicker bodied, mildly astringent, mild but sufficient carbonation.

Solid brew from Rogue, one of their better ones. I'm all for promoting the whole sustainable, local, grow your own types of brews, but they also need to be good - this one manages to do that.

3.81/5  rDev +1.3%

Mahogany brown in color with a moderate murkiness. A fingernail thin bit of off white head rests on top. Light Brussels lacing. I get a faint aroma of piney hops and light malt in the aroma. The flavor is much more piney malt forward,but there is plenty of light malt backbone present. The mouth is fairly light and dry.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear orange and amber with a thin near-white head. Lines and spots of lacing left down the glass. Very pretty.

Subdued and mild aroma. What's here is nice enough, though it's extremely bready and pretty simple. This is nicely balanced with a bit of earthy and grassy hop aroma and a touch of caramel sweetness, but the aroma is very muted and somewhat faraway.

A very bready pale ale dominated by pale and crystal malts and a touch of caramel sweetness. Moderate bitterness and very drinkable, though extremely simple.

Medium bodied and ample carbonation.

A very simple, bready, slightly sweet pale ale.

4/5  rDev +6.4%

Appears a clouded amber copper body with an off white light khaki head, which forms with nice intricate bands of lacing. Aroma has stale cereal notes hints of caramle and carbonation, with spicy herbal hops in the background. Flavor has a dry undying bitterness with malty sugary edges...what's going on with the Chatoe Rogue ales...a bit of malt upfront sweetness. Followed by dry doughy bitter sweet moments, The first sip of malts fills you with bread daough caramelized sweetness, while the second sip proves dry and bitter with leafy herbal hops. Mouthfeel is dry and mildly carbonated not bad stuff, smooth overall sensation. Drinkability is decent not much to report here, a vacation beer for chicks, because for me this doesn't carry out much of what the beer label is trying to do.

3.73/5  rDev -0.8%

A light amber brew with an excellent off-white head.

I had a name but no style information for this beer when consumed, but pegged it as an Amer. PA in both aroma and flavor -- so it is largely true to style. The aroma indicates that it may have a bit more and a bit fresher hops than usual. Flavor follows aroma, but the mix of hops didn't blend as well as usual for Rogue, IMO. ... perhaps because they constrained themselves to using only ingredients from Oregon.

Bottle purchased from Green's on Ponce in Atlanta.

Pours an opaque copper color with a 1.5-finger cream-colored head. The head recedes into a thin layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of thick pale malts with light amounts of floral and leafy hops. Also present are mild amounts of indistinct light fruit aromas that fade as the beer warms.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Grainy pale malt flavors kick things off and are joined almost immediately by good amounts of earthy and lightly pine-y hop flavors. Midway through the sip the hop flavors take over and carry through to a solidly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with grainy carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without any problems and could have another.

Overall this is an understated but very drinkable beer. Not worth seeking out but if you come across it give it a shot.
