A-dark cloudy amber with a thin but stable cream colored head. good lacing.
S-smells like a tamed west coast IPA. tropical fruits and hops. medium strength
T-comes in with a unique peppery herbal hoppiness. the taste along with a good bitterness lasts awhile. there is a great tropical fruits flavor that goes along with this. both flavors make up a good after-taste. this is a great and unique beer.
M-creamy medium to low carbonation with a semi dry finish
O-extremely impressed with this one. me being impressed with a rogue beer happens about once a year and today is that day. this might be the best APA i've ever had. i love the tropical aspect to this. its even better than some of my favorite IPAs.

A- Pours a burnt orange with a white head. Lacing was spectacular, reminiscent of whipped cream!
S- Honey, Caramel, Juicy Fruits (Orange Peel, Grapefruit, Granny Smith Apple and a little Pear), Spicy Notes (Hint of Black Pepper and Cardamom). This beer smells SO GOOD and Im usually not big on smell.
T- It has a good hop bite in the beginning followed by a sweet malty caramel finish. There are tastes of clover honey, citrus fruits that have been over ripened (in a good way, thus the juicy characteristics), some nuttiness, as well as some bready qualities. The mouth feel was light to medium. This is a good pale ale!
Food Pairing- I had this with some sweet jalapeno and thai curry wings along with some seasoned potato wedges...it was a REAL GOOD match. This would also be good with sushi...sushi dabbed with some wasabi and soy.
I was pretty surprised to see the score this beer got, an 85? Are you guys kidding me?!? My favorite beer is Rogue Dead Guy Ale but this actually might replace it; if not, it comes a close second. DRINK THIS!

hazy rusted orange glow with a billowing and sticky off white head. Smells like a grapefruit citrus pine bomb with a nice malt body below it. Slightly resinous with hints of caramel and tobacco.
Gorgeous hop showcase on this brew. Fresh piney hop resin explodes on the tongue. Bright citrus character through out. Medium malt body carries the vibrant hop flavors over the tongue. The back end of the tongue receives a punch of grapefruit flavor and wallop of bitterness. Piney hop resin lingers in the mouth coating the tongue and making the mouth water. Rogue's house yeast gives this beer it's crisp carbonation and friendly body.
A new standard for homegrown brews and APA's a like.

Drinking my second one at David Copperfield's Ale House in NYC as I type. There were no single IPAs that were new to me on tap, so I went for this Pale Ale from Rogue, one of my favorites.
I was told it was hoppy like an IPA and thats what it is. Frankly this is hoppier than some well known IPA's that I've had. Simply put, IMHO this is an IPA, and I will judge it as such. And it is excellent!
Balanced, with that nuanced bitterness that you want in an IPA. This one is fresh and delicious! Big up!
