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.

22oz bottle into imperial pint glass.
A: A foamy tan head, leaves nice sticky lacing. The body is a deep amber in color, with a dense haze. A bit darker on both the head and body for an APA, looks really good.
S: A nice complexity of hops and malts play into this aroma. It must be the trademarked Dare and Risk malts that are used. Notes of an earthy, lawn clipping style of hop aroma, not that of a English hop profile, just a unique west coast hops.
T/M: A bit of a spice on the front, a mellow hop body is a bit low on the carbonation. The malt finish is a nice and warming feeling, with notes of roasted almonds. A very smooth mouthfeel, holds a bit of a lingering taste, that is subtle, but still all there. A good overall hop/malt balance.
D: This is a quality APA, but the hops nor malts are really pulling through to make it all-star. A very typical Rouge brew, which is just that, basic and typical for specific style.

A- Poured into my DFH snifter... starts with a murky dark amber colored beer topped with a finger thick off white head that recedes leaving some lacing behind

S- Sweet malty aroma with some hints of bread

T- Starts out very sweet and malty when it first hits your palette, but finishes with the typical APA bitterness... tasty

M- Medium body with medium carbonation

D- An interesting APA that I would enjoy again based on taste but not on price

Fine looking beverage. Deep, clear, orange with a big, thick, sea foam head.

Malt and hops work well together on the nose. Spiced bread pudding. Dark toffee malt with good spicy hopping, cloves take the lead.

Taste is true to the aroma. Spice takes on a bit of pine. Malt is complex, sweet but full of character. Surprising bitterness in the finish, just a bit resinous.

A nice beer and a fine tribute to Rogue's partners.

22oz bomber purchased by my girlfriend at Wolverine Market in Port Huron, MI. Pours a cloudy, hazed amber, bordering on murky, with copper hues, a bitty and frothy beige head, and sheets of lacing on the nonic glass. Unusually opaque for an APA, but still attractive. Smell is floral hops, sweaty yeast, must, caramel, pit fruit, orange peel, pine, slight buttery note, and a touch of spruce. Taste is grainy caramel malt, citric, grassy and spicy hops, pit fruit, trace of diacetyl, faint jujube flavour, brown sugar, cinnamon, juicy and biting astringency on the palate, quite bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy medium, foamy carbonation, crisp bite on the tongue, lasting astringent finish. Considering this bottle is just under a year old, it's drinking pretty well. I find it sad that 'mediocre' US pale ales perform better than top-flight Ontario efforts of the same style. This is past its prime and yet it nevertheless satisfies the taste buds with a pleasant spiciness on the back end. An above average brew.

This beer pours an amber color with a finger of off white foamy head that retains and laces nicely. The aroma is somewhat weak but consists of citrusy hops and bready malt. The taste starts with caramel sweetness and then becomes citrusy and earthy. The beer finishes harshly carbonated but finishes clean tasting. Overall a good beer.

Hazy and bubbly, this brew pours a light amber with a frothy off-white head with small, tight bubbles which for homebrew means a good fermentation by healthy yeast. I likes 'em un-filtered, yessir.

Right away I get a very grainy caramel malt flavor, similar to many homebrews I have tasted. I get some earthy hops in the nose which I already know are willamette and sterling, both of which are pretty mellow. I am not familiar with Revolution hops, but I assume they are in that vain (a fuggle hybrid???). Not a lot going on in the nose for me, but what is there is subtle and pleasant.

Sweet and flowery up front with a sharp wave of bitterness immediately afterward. Talk about your early hop additions! Before the strong bitterness and grass in the middle, the beginning has a lot of sweet, mid-range malt character that does linger a little towards the end. I would use less bitterness i this one, but it is pretty balanced and a little heavier than most pales which justifies the extra bitterness for me.

Very drinkable. May take the palate to warm up to puckering bitterness, but the large amount of dissolved carbonation does a nice job of keeping this one light in the mouth while drying out those sour patches on the tongue.

Good, but not superb. Really reminds me of stellar homebrew, but I have had cleaner offerings from Rouge.

bottle poured into a cheater pint. dark amber color, minimal head but gobs of lacing. caramel and pine wrap around the tounge. alcohol is surprisingly warming on a chilly summer night. a nice beer, perhaps one I will look for again perhaps on a cold dreary winter night.
