2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from Bottle into Imperial Pint glass.
Pours a clear orange-copper color with a couple fingers of off-white head that leaves a heavy layer atop the glass. The aroma is grapefruit, caramel malt and some alcohol. The flavor is grapefruit hoppiness upfront and quickly develops into a strong malt flavor and finishes sweet and slightly dry. Its medium bodied and softly carbonated. This beer needs more hops in the nose and a more consistent hop flavor especially since its fresh hopped. I’m more looking for hop bombs from Fresh Hop ales and this just wasn’t that. This beer should certainly be considered an American Pale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazed orange light amber color with a lingering off-white head. It’s a little dark here in Small Bar in central San Diego, so forgive the appearance description if it’s not entirely accurate. A lot of lacing around the edges of the glass appear as the beer is consumed. The bouquet is comprised of citrus and heavy cream. This flavor is difficult to describe. Sweet lemon esters. Everything blends well. The first few pulls yielded some harshness at the finish. I had some Stone PTSD. But, everything blended and got smoother as I worked my way through it. There might be some apricot in there. Midlle of the road. Maybe just a little north of that.

On tap at Fat Heads Pittsburgh. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, biscuit, toffee, and light citrus. Flavor of caramel malts, toasted malts, bitter hops in the finish. Not a super hoppy wet hop, lots of malt presence here, but it’s quite good.

Nice West Coast IPA. Bitter. Has a great depth -- a malty backbone perhaps is what I'm tasting? Very fresh, too.

Bottle with Carla. Pours a slightly hazy gold with off-white foam. Smells sweet and lightly bitter with hints of grass and lemon. Tastes lightly sweet, very herbal with hints of lemon and plenty of bitterness.

This beer is fantastic. I love the fresh green hop aroma and flavor. I am not usually a fan of Rogue beers, but this shows that they can produce a winner. Great beer, for sure.
