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.

This was bottle poured into a white wine glass.

Appearance; Gorgeous deep, robust amber that obscures the glass, strong finger head with large bubbles, great "cloudy" effect when held to the light

Smell; Tangy floral notes with a grassy undertone, almost lemon like. Second smell reveals bready characteristics, almost like white bread

Taste; Beautiful, bold hop presence, mild malty backing. Tangerine, lemon, presence of sweet malt, pie crust, bread lingering in the back

Mouthfeel; "Medium", heavier on the tongue than anywhere else in the mouth, rich feeling

Overall; A delightful brew. It's well balanced and fresh tasting while still coming on strong with the hopiness. I could take a bomber of this anywhere.

A hazy orangey-copper with a huge cream colored head that I had to let sit for a minute or two before I could even try to explore the beer. Nice lacing. I could smell a nice does of orange rind as I awaited the foam to die down. Once I got to smell the beer up close the citric aroma remained strong, this time both the fruit as well as the rind, and also showing itself was a nice doughiness from the malt. A very nice and inviting aroma. A fruit forward flavor, orange and lemon, with a bready malt base (that gains in strength as it warms) to this. This beer isn't very sweet, its more refreshing with a touch of bitterness that kicks in towards the second half and carries into the aftertaste. Not much life to the flavor though. A crisp medium body to this with a dry finish. Overall, nothing wrong with this beer but I found it to be quite boring.
