A: A hazy copper color with a thin off-white head that laces the glass.

S: Toasted caramel malt with a touch of floral hop.

T: A nice sweet caramel and toasted malt flavor with some floral hop and almost pineapple or tropical fruity esters. Bitter and a bit dry in the finish.

M: Medium body with good smooth carbonation. Good feel to it.

O: A quality pale ale. I really like the flavors in the beer. Sweet and fruity, but balanced out by the bitterness from the hop.

Orange-brown with a frothy head.

Smells very nice, grapefruity over bready caramel notes.

Malty caramel, grapefruit, bread, and some earthy tea-like notes. Hops run away with the finish.

Mouthfeel full, slightly resinous.

Flavorful, but not my favorite from Rogue. Too much ESB-like taste, which I'm not digging in this. But I love the locally grown aspect.

Notes from 5/5/2010

A- Hazzy copper/peach pour. Half finger soapy off white head. Large bubbles. Lacing just sheets the side of glass.

S- Mandarin and faint citrus hops. Sweet malt. Apples and cinnamon. Sweet cherries. Spices.

T- Malt sweetness, floral bitterness. Apples and cinnamon. Alcohol warmth

M- Medium bodied, prickly carbonation. Warmth from alcohol.

O- Good representation of style, great to see the gyo and "drink local" not my favorite gyo rogue beer though.

A: Pours a deep, hazy burnt orange color. Two fingers of reddish-orange foam bubble up with a dense, frothy texture. Retention is good, and some nice speckling of lace sticks to the glass.

S: Toasty and moderately sweet caramel malt is prominent up front. Earthy, fruity, and spicy/herbal hop notes feature reasonably prominently. Light tartness is also apparent. A bit of woody/resiny and mineral character is also evident in the background.

T: Moderately toasty and fairly sweet up front, with some medium caramel notes. Hop bitterness builds gradually but eventually becomes fairly strong into the finish. Hop flavors are fruity (preserved apricots?), resiny, and earthy, with some mild citric (orange) notes. An unusual hop profile. Light fruity and mineral notes are detectable.

M: Medium-full body. Carbonation is medium. A slowly-developing bitter dryness lasts a while into the finish.

D: An interesting, fairly tasty pale ale from Rogue. All the flavors don't fit perfectly well together, and the aftertaste lingers almost to the point of being overdone. However, this has an interesting hop presence overall, and it's worth a try.

Bought a bottle of this at Total Wine right before the holidays. Have been saving this to pair with the right food. As per the bottle, fish & smoked foods would do well. I decided to finally crack it open with some cheeses (habanero cheddar -paired well, goat milk - not so much) from DiBruno Bros.

Poured into a tulip glass for review. Nice vigorous pour produced a nice frothy slight off-white head. Crystal clear ruby amber with no noticeable carbonation going on. Aroma is very malt forward. Caramelly & melanoidin rich malts. Residual sugars, maybe brown sugars, hide any aroma hops intended.

Tastes malty just like in the nose. Rich caramel malts with residual sugars but not cloying. Faint hop bitterness balances nicely. Feels a bit creamy, somewhat luscious due to the seemingly heavy amount of malt flavors going on. Medium-full, perhaps a little sticky sweet.

I love what this beer has going on. I admire Rogue's approach using all ingredients from Oregon including what I assume is mostly their own products from their farm. This one delivers. A great malt forward beer that I could come back to. Keep beers like these coming!

From notes taken 03/24/16:

Semi-clear tarnished copper, topped by yellow-tan head of creamy, fluffy texture and appearance, and good, film-forming retention, with wet, non-sticking legs. Aromas of caramel, vegetal spiciness, resin, date-like esters, brown sugar. Earthy, leathery, leafy, vegetal throughout, caramel and tartness in the middle and back, with citrus seed, tea, resin, dank spice, metal, and peppercorn for the finish. Quite dry. Fuller end of medium-bodied, velvety and fine fizzy effervescence, crisp, moderately astringent.
