Had this on tap at the Rogue pub. Very well balanced and easy drinking. Don't let the ibu count scare you, they did a great job of making this for anyone who likes a pale ale.

Poured on tap a light amber under a half-inch thick white head which leaves semi-rings of lace. Aroma is lightly floral, herbal, and hoppy. Flavor is balanced with malt and piney notes. Finishes with an herbal spice. Semi-moderate body.

the rogue farms project is such a cool series of beers, with stuff we dont see too often in the beer world. i mean, some of them have been downright bizarre. this one is less inspired than some of the others honestly, and as much as i love wet hop beer, this one doesnt necessarily display those qualities as well as i would like it to. the homegrown thing is awesome, and i have to give points for that, but this recipe needs more hops. i get a balanced american pale here, not a wet hop ipa. that sticky fresh sappy hop thing is too subtle, its only in the finish, and the grain seems to be showcased as much as the hops when i just want it to get out of the way. maybe part of it is i am not familiar with the hops used in this recipe, they are rogues own i think, and they are either real mild or way under dosed. that said, the beer is clean drinking, autumnal in its own way, and pretty dark tasty. i just wish for more of the wet hop character, maybe next year.
