"Rose is inspired by the Belgian Tripel style. It is a top fermented ale which has a deep golden color with a light refreshing body. The beer has a subtle hop profile using the Northwest's finest whole hop flowers. We use Aromatic and Honey malts along with Candy Sugar to give it a unique and fruity character. It is 6% alcohol by weight (7.5% by volume)."

Pours a hazy deep golden color with nice carbonation and a good sized frothy/rocky head. This brew has got that trademark Hair of the Dog hop aroma that I really like. Grapefruit and tangerine. MMMMMM. The body is light. There is some alcohol that hits you pretty fast, but it isn't overwhelming and does not mask the other nice complexities going on here. Fruity esters are abundant. Nice hop accents. And solid malt backing. As I work my way through the beer, the alcohol doesn't let you forget it's around. Maybe a little too much for my liking, but at least it doesn't get in the way of everything else.

Another solid offering from Hair of the Dog.

Tons of sediment suspended in this brew. It poured with a nice creamy head and an orange glow to it. Smells are honey, light fruits and faint alcohol. The hop bitterness of this beer brings it a little bit out of balance IMO. Also, there is too much yeast in the taste. The candy sweetness and light fruit tastes should be more prevalent than they are. Definitely a drinkable beer but not one of my favorite Tripels.
