I think the idea of a brewery growing its own hops and malting its own barley is pretty dang cool, so I had to buy a bomber of this one.

Pours a murky brown with a sturdy off-white head. Decent nose, but as with many Rogue beers, it has a harshness on the palate that is off-putting. Grainy, not well-balanced.

I've tried to like Rogue, but it hasn't happened in the 15 years or so since I had my first one, so it's just not my thing.

But having said that, I've had plenty of beers from Rogue that were better than this one. Would not buy again.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Couldn't find a freshness date on the bottle.

Look: hazy amber. I haven't seen an APA this cloudy in some time. The head is thick and is about three fingers. The head is tan colored. Looks very carbonated.

Smell: I get a lot of fruity hops, some herbs, caramel, and some citrus hops as well. Not overly aggressive in terms of hops and smells very sweet. The smell is fairly strong and I could smell the glass with my nose about a foot away from the glass.

Taste: sweet and malty with some fruity hops as in the smell.

Feel: medium bodied but kind of thick for an APA. Not very crisp despite the early amount of carbonation. Not enough bitterness either. Alcohol is hidden well.

Drink: I dunno how many of these I would drink.

Overall, I am not the biggest fan of this one. It was decent but nothing extraordinary. I also couldn't really tell that it was an APA because the hops aren't really out in front as they should've been. Maybe my bottle is old or something but there was too much malt for my taste. The mouthfeel was perhaps the most disappointing part. I wouldn't really recommend but maybe give it a try if you're a big fan of Rogue.

EDIT: I had another bottle, hoping to give this one another try. The beer tasted the same with the added fact that it was a gusher. As soon as it was opened, it geysered out so I lost about half of the beer in that fashion. Contacting Rogue to complain was fruitless. I would definitely recommend avoiding this beer at all costs.

A-Pours murky brown/amber. Nice big head with lots of lacing.

S-Beautiful citrous hop smell. Big Orange rind.

T-Lots of orange on the front, but the flavor is very fleeting. The hops continues long after the beer is gone, but it seems to be too much.

M-Big hops in the mouth but the they tend to leave unpleasant bitterness that lingers too long

D-Hard to enjoy this beer for anything more than the big orange up front. The hops are the least pleasing thing in this beer.

On draft at Scotty's

Pours cloudy copper with a decent off white head. Good lacing and retention.

Aroma is on the malty side with some citrus notes, but way too much sweetness for a pale.

Unfortunately aroma carries over into flavor. Very weird profile. Entirely too much sweetness for a pale ale, but still finishes bitter and astringent somehow. Flavors are all over the place.

Decent medium bodied and quite resinous creating a viscous mouthfeel. Got a little cloying.

A complete mess. I'm amazed this is only 40 IBU with as astringent a finish as it has, but way too malty up front. All around mediocre.

2.6/5  rDev -30.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appears a nice amber color with a thick, tan head. The head has great staying power and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is slightly musty. Just doesn't seem quite right. Almost smells like a sweaty sock. There are some slight hop hints, but definitely isn't enjoyable. The taste starts very malty, a nice bready flavor and then becomes slightly bitter. The hops added some good spiciness, but there's not really anything overly impressive here. The bitter aftertaste also sticks around for a very long time.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some sharp carbonation. Doesn't exactly go down easily, but after a few, it gets easier. Overall, nothing impressive.. The aroma and flavors aren't right, and I'm just not feeling these traits together...

On-tap. Tumbler glass. From my notes -dec´11-. Deep orangish amber color. Foggy appearance. White froth & rocky crown. Some spooty lacings. Fairly good retention.Mildy caramelized malts, slightly bready & toffee aromas with floral & citric notes to the nose. Flavors show woody hops & some citrics over a sweet -no annoying- malty backbone. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Slightly astringent in the middle. Subtle hoppiness is felt at the finish & lingers on the aftertaste. Refreshing.

22oz bottle into a pint

A- A light amber hue, with a slight haze. Poured with a modest 1 finger white head, that dissipated rather quickly. Unappealing color.

S- Toasted malts and vegetable hop notes.

T- Nondescript malt profile with more musty veggie like hops. Does nothing to peak your interest.

M- Meduim bodied, could have used some more carbonation.

O- Not impressive. Could have easily come from your average small-town nano brewer. Rogue can do better than this.

Pours an orangey amber color, translucent, with substantial orange-tinged cream-colored head.

Smell is mostly citrus hops, with some pine, and odd soapy overtones. But there's really not much there - the smell is disappointingly weak, and just a touch unpleasant.

The flavor, similar to the smell, just doesn't have a whole lot to it. It kinda ramps up from weak wheaty malts in the front to more potent citrus and pine hops in the finish that carry a bit of bitterness. Pretty straightforward, not much complexity or subtlety to the flavor at all.

Body is medium-light, with medium carbonation. Not bad, but not really notable in any way.

I found this to be a totally unremarkable beer with a slightly soapy aroma. Some malts, some hops, not much else to it. I'm not a big fan.

S: Slightly grassy hops, prominent malt with slight toffee. Some biscuit as well.

L: Cloudy, reddish brown. Creamy white head with little retention. Solid lacing.

T: Slight, spicy hop flavor up front, before a big malty body overwhelming. Medium herbal bitterness with a slight dry toffee not. Finishes fairly dry with an herbal hop finish.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation.

Meh.
