Pours out a very weak ice tea color with one finger of white suds and slight lacing around the glass.
Smell is juniper berry I guess but I am smelling some grapefruit and pine needles. Orange peel mixed with caramel malts finish this aroma off.
Taste is a bit dirty but still has enough piney hops to keep it interesting.
Mouthfeel is clean for the most part and it goes down nicely when fairly cold.
Good session beer but Dead Guy is a better choice.

Rouge, is that kind of brewery that provides the kind of beers that make drinking fun and exciting. Sitting down with the bros? don't do just any beer, grab something that actually sparks conversation - like this one!

Honnestly, its not the best in all the world; or even in all the world of rouge's beer bible! BUT, this is a solid and intriguing brew.

Color - GOLD! Bright gold at that! With a very white head that sits for a few minutes, and then dissipates.

Smell - Nothing too out of the ordinary or off of what you would expect. Juniper, hops, nothing else matters.

Taste - Brilliantly blended flavors!Slight sweetness at first (especially in the head) decent hit of hops and spice. No trace of hard alcohol notes hardly - really well done blend.

feel - nothing crazy. Like any other Pale Ale really.

Overall - It's a hot day in NY; and this beer satisfies! Drinkable enough to enjoy when needing a cool refresher and interesting enough to keep me drinking. I think the brothers said it best: a good conversation beer! However, lets be real here, I cannot write it off as the best of anything.

22 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with 2-3 cm of white fluffy head that is slowly diminishing. Aroma of weed more so than hops. Initial flavor is sweet, almost sugar sweet. Flavor changes quickly to a dry, hoppy, bitter, floral flavor that has a long aftertaste. Light to medium body, limited carbonation, light lacing, and slight alcohol presence. Overall, on par with Rogue beers, but one of their weaker beers.
