Amber color, 1/2" white head. Hoppy aroma, nugget, c hops maybe.

Taste had a English malt toffee, lightly toasted little effect going for it. Hops were American. Mostly c hops, the usual combo of pine and grapefruit. Light bodied thankfully. Would bang again, inconvenient bomber format though.

Clear golden colour with a small foamy white head. Poor head retention.

Crisp light citrus aroma with a hint of grapefruit. Good.

Smooth, light, crisp malt with some smooth fruity hops. Nicely balanced for a Rogue beer.

Medium light body with moderate carbonation. A good beer.

Picked up a painted bomber of this beer while visiting central OR. Poured into a tulip glass on 7/4/2011, only a couple days after purchasing.

A: Orange copper body--cloudy with quite a bit of sediment floating around. Prolific light khaki colored head--this recedes slowly from 2 finger to a thin layer throughout enjoyment, leaving a strong lace in its stead.

N: Pine and apple and orange.

T/M: Earth pine and a bit of peppery spice up front, backed by a lightly sweet malt that tastes of biscuit and honey. Oily and thick mouth-feel. This ale's initially dry finish is quickly replaced with an oily, bitter after taste that just...lingers pleasantly.

Overall, I think this is a very decent beer. Without checking BA, I would not have known this was an IPA style ale by looking at it--it appears to be more of a red or dark pale ale--but I really like it; well-balanced and easy drinking.

Didn't realize this was a Rogue brew on first glance
A - a hazy rich orange, tall head that retained very well and left fantastic lacing up the glass as it dissipated
S - very pine hoppy along with citrus, slightly bready and just a little spicy
T - very comparable to the scent, there is also some light caramelly sweetness, and the spicy hop notes come through nicely on the finish, a great use of multiple hop flavours
M - medium body and carbonation, the hop bitter is featured but balanced well with rich and sweet malt
D - a nice take on the IPA, not a hop bomb but well featured hops but very well balanced with the malt, flavourful and fairly easy drinking, worth another purchase

Big thanks to fellow BA joemcgrath27 for sharing this gem!

A - Pours a hazy orange colour, two thick fingers of head, great retention and sticky lacing. Great presentation!

S - Scent is very sweet and fresh, with pine needles dominating followed by citrus hops.

T - Much like the scent, it is very fresh and citrusy, with sweet lemon dominating the palette. Some grapefruit, pine and cedar all making an appearance. Absolutely delicious!

M - No complaints in this department, nice light feel, perfect carbonation levels, goes down smooth.

D - This is a very tasty IPA and I could easily toss back several of these without any hesitation. If this came in a 6-er, I'd add it to my go-to list for session beers. Nice sweet hoppy flavours, complemented by a nice moutfeel, make it an enjoyable experience.

A pint on tap at the Rogue Public House in SF.

Amber and hazy with a great head and lacing. Very good head retention. Citrus aroma. Medium amount of carbonation. Taste reminds me of a blend between a West Coast and East Coast IPA. Very understated citrus notes in the front and middle with an earth bitter back end. Odd acidic (?) hop profile in the middle and end, though. Med-light mouthfeel.

A - Poured with a small white head on top of a clear, golden body. The foam settles quickly and leaves moderate lace.

S - Sweet malt with a fairly strong note of caramel. A light hop aroma with some sweet orange.

T - Initial flavors of sweet, bready malt are followed by light citrus hop flavor in the middle. Some orange character comes out next with a hint of caramel. Finishes with more citrus hops and moderate, pithy bitterness.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - A decent IPA with a surprisingly malty character considering the light color. There is some citrus hop character, but it doesn't have the overwhelming green hop aroma of many other examples of the style. More of an old school, bitter-malty IPA.

On tap at Kickbacks Gastropub in Jacksonville. Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Golden body, thin white head, moderate sticky lacing. Aroma is citrusy, grapefruity, orangey, lovely. Taste has mild malt sweetness and a nice bitter hoppy bite. Pretty damn solid IPA, wish it was widely distributed.

650ml bomber poured into tulip aug3 2010

A cloudy orange that seems to glow with a large off white head that has great retention leaving partial rings of lace well down the glass

S citrus, pine some bread and caramels

T what I smell but some spicy hops I didn't pick up on the nose, a little sweet but nothing crazy and enough malt so the hops don't completely take over the brew

M thick for the color and quite bitter might be stripping some enamel of my teeth but I'm OK with that

D I enjoyed this beer, didn't blow me away but it's solid in all areas

drink this one if you like hops it's a pretty good beer
