4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
A- Pours a burnt orange with a white head. Lacing was spectacular, reminiscent of whipped cream!
S- Honey, Caramel, Juicy Fruits (Orange Peel, Grapefruit, Granny Smith Apple and a little Pear), Spicy Notes (Hint of Black Pepper and Cardamom). This beer smells SO GOOD and Im usually not big on smell.
T- It has a good hop bite in the beginning followed by a sweet malty caramel finish. There are tastes of clover honey, citrus fruits that have been over ripened (in a good way, thus the juicy characteristics), some nuttiness, as well as some bready qualities. The mouth feel was light to medium. This is a good pale ale!
Food Pairing- I had this with some sweet jalapeno and thai curry wings along with some seasoned potato wedges...it was a REAL GOOD match. This would also be good with sushi...sushi dabbed with some wasabi and soy.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from the bomber. Aroma is earthy and malty. As is the flavour. Really earthy which seems to be the case with most organic stuff I’ve had. The bitterness is in the spicy realm. Also a earthy bitterness. Finished dry. good lacing down the glass, nice head, slightly cloudy.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a cloudy orange/amber color with a dense yellowish head. The nose has a moderate, slightly sweet hop aroma with notes of grass, pineapple and orange peel. The taste starts with sweet caramel, grain, and wood. The end is huge with bitter citusy hops. Great bitter bite in the finish. Nicely balanced.

Tap. Pours cloudy amber with thin, creamy white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is earthy hops, biscuit malt, figs, and spice. Flavor is light, sweet malt, heavy hops, and light fruit esters; dry, hoppy finish. Medium body, carbonation, and warmth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 2/29/12, Happy Leap Day - Breakout your Blue and Yellow.
Aroma: The nose is somewhat grassy, some pine and floral hops, and a little caramel and earth
Appearance: The pour is a hazy amber-orange color with a thick, foamy tan head and medium lacing
Flavor: This one has a light caramel, citrus sweetness, and a medium-heavy grassy/floral hop bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a fairly soft carbonation, and a long, fairly dry finish to it
I enjoyed this one. It is a nice, fairly dry feeling, fresh hop offering. I also found it to be quite drinkable. I’ve now had a chance to try 3 of the beers from the Chatoe Rogue series, and I’ve quite enjoyed 2 of the 3.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle poured into a cheater pint. dark amber color, minimal head but gobs of lacing. caramel and pine wrap around the tounge. alcohol is surprisingly warming on a chilly summer night. a nice beer, perhaps one I will look for again perhaps on a cold dreary winter night.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy rusty orange. Caramel citrus aroma along with some toffee and toasty malt. Flavor profile is a sweet orange citrus followed by a hoppy pine aftertaste. Overall, fairly drinkable but not that exciting to me. Almost bordering on an IPA in flavor and aroma.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from the Fridge, Lancaster. Pours a dark orange haze. Some nice spice coming through the hops. Unfortunately, a bit old tasting, for which I blame the Fridge, not Rogue. I would love to taste this fresh.
