12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of orange zest, lemon zest, juniper berry, floral, grass, honey, biscuit, cracker, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of hop, malt, and juniper berry notes; with solid strength. Taste of orange zest, lemon zest, juniper berry, floral, grass, honey, biscuit, cracker, light pine, and floral earthiness. Slight floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange zest, juniper berry, floral, grass, honey, cracker, biscuit, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of hop, malt, and juniper berry flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and slightly crisp mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Good balance of hop, malt, and juniper berry flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

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.

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).
