Very quick review. This red ale is remarkable in every way. The depth of flavor, from subtle hops to perfect maltiness make this brew unforgettable. Balance & depth are so perfectly achieved here, this is a tremendous offering from Rogue.

Sampling right now on 4/17/15. Comes in a '1 pint, 6 ounce' (22 oz.) bottle with a nice painted-on label as all Rogue brews do. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a hazy amber in color with a good 2-finger foamy off-white head that very slowly settles down to still a good 5mm after 20 mins even. A good amount of ring-like sticky lacing is seen when sipped that sticks to the sides of the glass. The aroma is of earthy hops and bready yeast malts for the most part. Bit more going on with the taste as the malts are right up front with some pine in the mix as well. Does have a bit of a hoppy finish as many of this style of brew does, The hoppy finish doesn't last all that long but a bit more than I actually care for. Overall, it is drinkable but not a chugger for me from the bitterness. Medium-bodied with good carbonation. Will go with a '6.5' or so since that bitterness is not to my fancy. A one time try for me though.

Amber / copper body with a thick, khaki hued, sea foam head. Aromas of bready malts, earthy hops, mineral water. Malt forward. Sourdough bread with notes of pine. Moderate bitterness. Medium bodied. Resinous hops linger on the palate. Pretty good.
