Bottle from a friend that brought it to Australia from California.

A - Pours fairly dark copper and bright. Two finger fluffy white head and good carbonation. Quite hazy with the addition of the yeast at the bottom. Good rings of lace and a finger of retention.

S - Some citrus and stone fruits with some nice caramel to balance. Mild yet nice.

T - Stone fruit and some mild citrus again. Reminds me of peaches and plums. Nice Caramel malt component too. A bit spicy as well with a pepper note. There is a certain roughness that comes through in the flavours which is probably the spicy pepper note combining with the hop citrus flavours, and while it seems rough, it isn't altogether unpleasant.

M - Good carbonation, medium body and a lingering stone fruit flavour with some bitterness.

O/D - Not a bad beer from Rogue. I don't think I'd look for it again, but it was nice to try.

Chill hazed orange colored beer with a small tan colored head.

Smell is Northwest hops and sweet malt. Aromas of pineapple, hay, cedar, iced tea and pine.

Starts out dry and earthy despite the sweet smell. Well balanced, earthy flavored but not bitter. Flavors are mostly wood and strong tea.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a decent pale ale that costs too much.

On-tap at the brewery in Newport, OR.

Pours a hazy amber-golden colour, with a solid, almost gelatinous weight to it. Head is a yellowish-white, that forms a fine film and solid ring around the edge of the glass. Lacing is sticky and sheeting, carbonation is powdery. Looks great.

Bright and fresh on the nose, with clean, sharp nuances of white pepper and freshly broken twigs alongside a juice apricot sweetness. Very nicely balanced.

Front palate is light with a hint of pepper, before fruitier notes of citrus rind and peach come through. It's a bit tart and green all around, which develops into a biting wintergreen character on the finish. However, the end is rather clean, and has a rounded smoothness that almost hints at raspberries. Very interesting.

Overall, a very drinkable beer, with lots of interest, and a profile that just makes you want to drink it all day. Nice stuff.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a perfect pint.

This murky red-orange beer has a strong caramel malt aroma with some spicy hops over top. There's also a hint of diacetyl on the nose. The taste is very big on the hops used here, which are a Rogue-unique strain. I get an interesting blend of spicy and piney flavors from them. They seem like they'd be right at home in a pilsner, but still wind up working well with the rich caramel malts and the hint of buttery flavor. The aftertaste is strongly bitter and piney. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and crisply carbonated, and the drinkability is very good. Overall, this is an interesting take on an APA using a Noble-esque hop strain. It won't replace any of my favourites, but it's worth a try.

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.

A: Very nice deep cloudy brown/mahogany coloring with 2 fingers of head that dissipates to a thin veil of lace that clings all the way down.

S: Very aromatic. Some dark fruits as well as a nice wheat and malt mix with a hint of doughy yeast. Very nice.

T: Some of those dark fruits coming thru from the get go lead way to the nice floral hoppyness. Little bit of spice mixed in with the bitterness of the hops with a biscuit like after taste that lingers in the mouth. All around very enjoyable.

M: Medium carbonation works well with the flavors making for a medium bodied brew with a thick creamy after taste that lingers around.

O: Pretty impressed with this all around. Nice balance between the dark fruits, malt and hop bitterness and ending on a nice doughy note. Would def try again.
