Had this beer for the first time tonight at a restaurant. This is a solid beer that went really well with my meal.

Poured golden into a standard pint glass. Had a very small white head that didn't last long.

Smells of juniper, honey, malt and slight fruitiness. Nice smell overall.

Taste is really clean and crisp. Upfront, I get a strong juniper flavor followed by honey, floral hops and citrus. Slight bitterness. Very drinkable.

Mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Good carbonation.

I will definitely have this beer again. It's refreshing and I could easily put back several of these. Would like to try this one on draft.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Amber color with a thin head with medium retention, but keeping a constant ring.
Light aroma of juniper berries, honey and papaya.
Taste mostly follows nose, bitter flavor with notes of papaya, subtle juniper berries, caramel, apple puree, flowers, rogue yeast and biscuit malt. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
This beer is alright, though not at the same level as other Rogues. Nice to know how a beer with Juniper tastes, which was a more common ingredient in the past. The one I had a while ago seemed fresher with less papaya (this is due in 6 months).

12 oz. bottle poured into a tumbler

A- Pale goldenrod and unfiltered. Weak white head dies quickly.

S- Earthy evergreen comes out first in the nose. A hint of caramel and grainy malt.

T- Toasted malts with a bite of evergreen, I'm assuming the juniper. Bitterness is light.

M- Dull bitterness throughout, and the finish is long.

O- Just not that impressed with this one. The bitterness is dull and not that pleasant, and there isn't really much flavor.

Pours a bright gold with a small white head that doesnt last long.

Smell is basic pale ale. Floral hops, honey, juniper, and bit of maltiness.

Taste is clean as a whistle. Bright and crisp floral hops, vague juniper berry, some orange, and honey.

Mouthfeel is light as has a refreshing palate presence. Medium carbonation.

Overall a nice beer.
