3.11/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A: Golden copper in color, with a nice transparency to it, has almost no head at all, and left just a tiny bit of lacing around the glass.

S: Strong hints of lemon zest and grapefruit, following with some pine notes as well, the hops were present on the nose, no juniper though.

T: The balance of the beer was not to bad, the lemon and citrus were present throughout, hints of pine on the tongue as well, slight breadyness also. Still no juniper, that I noticed at least.

M: Medium Bodied, good amount of carbonation.

O: Nothing great about this beer, easy drinker, but was expecting different flavors from the herbal notes but didnt find them.

Serving type: on-tap

3.34/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Bottle: a standard brown 466mL bottle with the usual Rogue-style label.

Appearance: pours a clear amber in colour with a fluffy white head that drops quickly to a decent film. Great lacing down the glass.

Aroma: some bready aromas with a touch of berries and spice.

Taste: I'm not tasting the juniper tartness I was expecting - just a decent but standard pale ale with some hop bitterness.

Aftertaste: pretty much follows the taste, but with a bit more bitterness.

Mouth feel: a moderate body with just enouugh carbonation to carry the flavour.

Overall: once again an average beer from Rogue for an exhorbitant price. This is the third I've had, and the third that is way over-priced. I would compare this beer (at AU$140+ a case) to Matilda Bay's Fat Yak (at AU$52 a case).

California

3.74/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Pours a semi-clear, golden sunset orange with a white, near two-finger head. Good retention, leads to a broken, webbed layer of suds across the surface. Strong lacing left around the glass with nice stick.

Smell - White bready aroma with berry and spice notes.

Taste - Follows the nose. Clean malt bill allows the juniper to shine through with touches of berry fruitiness and a light spice bite. Notes of grassy bitterness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium in body with lively carbonation lends itself to a crisp, dry finish.

Overall - A good pale overall. Nothing mindblowing, but great balance in flavor and mouthfeel and entirely drinkable; quite quaffable.
