Bought a bottle of this at Total Wine right before the holidays. Have been saving this to pair with the right food. As per the bottle, fish & smoked foods would do well. I decided to finally crack it open with some cheeses (habanero cheddar -paired well, goat milk - not so much) from DiBruno Bros.

Poured into a tulip glass for review. Nice vigorous pour produced a nice frothy slight off-white head. Crystal clear ruby amber with no noticeable carbonation going on. Aroma is very malt forward. Caramelly & melanoidin rich malts. Residual sugars, maybe brown sugars, hide any aroma hops intended.

Tastes malty just like in the nose. Rich caramel malts with residual sugars but not cloying. Faint hop bitterness balances nicely. Feels a bit creamy, somewhat luscious due to the seemingly heavy amount of malt flavors going on. Medium-full, perhaps a little sticky sweet.

I love what this beer has going on. I admire Rogue's approach using all ingredients from Oregon including what I assume is mostly their own products from their farm. This one delivers. A great malt forward beer that I could come back to. Keep beers like these coming!

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.

Appearance - Pours a cloudy, burnt orange color with an off-white, puffy 2 finger width head. Good retention. Fair lacing with good stick.

Smell - Caramel and citrus primarily. Bread aroma comes through as it warms. Not much else.

Taste - Lightly toasted bread character to start, with hints of caramel, then gives way to a firm, moderate citrus hop bitterness. Touches on spice. Subtle, lingering pith bitterness in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied, though it coats the mouth nicely. Soft, but well carbonated.

Overall - A very good, though somewhat safe pale ale from Rogue. Great balance. Sessionable, if it weren't so darn pricey. Maybe not a beer I'd buy again, unless it were offered in six packs at better value.

Deep copper with a slight amount of haze that clears on warming. Light tan head with decent lacing and retention. Caramel floral aroma, very understated. Earthy with light fruit and even lighter spice. Medium to dry with light to medium bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel leans towards soft.
