Gotta love the name.

Appearance:
This beer poured a rich dull copper that was unexpected given the fact that it's a pale ale. A thick, frothy light tan head formed and later blanketed the beer in my Duvel tulip. The beer appears hazy, but not unfiltered.

Smell:
Whoa, the smell gives you the best first impression of this beer. It has moved beyond a pale ale and into a category of extreme brewing. I am reminded of my first impressions with immortale by DFH, but the vanilla and maple isn't as strong.

Taste:
Spicy, Yeast, and Hoppppy bitterness. The ale is rich and gives the beer a good body to encompass these flavors. The bitterness from the hops is pure pine sap and way overpowering to give me any type of frothing in my loins (oregasmic). However, the beer remains decent, superior to many even still.

Mouthfeel:
Slightly off centered, the bitter aftertaste is gross after a while. The beer reminds me of a hoppy ale, borderline IPA-Belgian hybrid possibly. The sweetness comes through more effortlessly when the beer is warmed, but is a scavenger hunt.

Drinkability:
I liked this beer and thought it was a fairly drinkable beverage, especially for the price. There were off moments about the beer, but overall it had remarkable character and a smooth finish (despite a harsh, bitter aftertaste). I would compare this beer to wild devil belgian IPA or even a scotch ale. At a restaurant I think it would pair poorly, but if the opportunity arises I may still challenge my initial opinions.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper-amber color, with two fingers of off-white head. Good foam retention and nice lacing. A beautiful beer.

Smell: Malty and with citrus notes.

Taste: Malty up front seamlessly shifting into bitter hoppiness that lingers. Malty notes almost remind me of toffee, not my favorite but very interesting.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body with slightly resinous texture. Strong carbonation without being overbearing.

Overall: Another solid beer from Rogue. Solid hop profile, but the strong maltiness reminds me of an amber or red ale at times. Definitely worth trying.

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.
