$5.99/22 oz. brown bottle. Liquid Town. Corpus Christi. Pours a real thick looking caramel brown with a huge head. Thick like a barleywine. The aroma is sweet and lightly hoppy, musty. The taste is sweet like brown sugar bread.

Spelt (231) - East Kingston, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Aroma reminiscent of a pils with hop pungency, but with some soapy aromas. Nice deep yellow with super thick head. Soap also comes across in the flavor although the toasty malts are very nice. balanced bitterness and finishes dry. A bit over carbonated and body a little thin. OK but not Rogue’s best.

Travlr (13511) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Bomber. Deep golden color, small white head, great lacing. Aroma of peach, pine, citrus. Taste starts malty, bready, then quickly becomes very bitter with a dry and very bitter finish. Interesting.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Clear copper yellow, whitish thick foam. Aroma is kind of grainy, pear skin. Taste is more sweet, grainy, husky malt, not much here.

So, Dare and Revolution, huh? A bevy of firsts from this bomber before the Zips game. Lovely pale malt and dank hops in the nose. Dark golden pour with a dense, sudsy-creamy beige head. Watery light feel with very low bitterness. Some light cream/slush, some faint grit and dank cellar notes. Dry and cleansing rather than bursting/saturating with fruity, juicy hops. I appreciate this and there’s a high degree of craftsmanship, for once, from these guys. Medium body, cracker in the aftertaste. Clean.

Cloudy yellow to orange pour. Nose isn’t bursting but does show some young prairie grains, fresh hops and hits of yeast. Some peach hits the palate followed by kumut grain bread, those fresh hops and tangy malt. Light and fluffly mouth feel with a grassy finish.

Tmoney99 (11100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Bottle. Poured clear dark golden color with medium to large white frothy head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate spruce hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew.

In short: A grainy dry yeasty beer of some kind. Not refreshing and tiresome.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after purchase.
The look: Almost clear golden blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is light with notes of bread crust and autumnal dry tree leafs. This is not going to be a hop bomb. Taste is more of the same. Bread crust, yeast, salad croutons, some dry citrus fruits, light floral hops presence. A dry and slightly acidic finish that I’d describe as dried lemon skin. Although the body is almost clear I got a strong (too strong) yeasty sensation that did not sit well with the rest of the beer. Weird. Overall quite dry. The opposite of a juicy refreshing APA. This is not refreshing, not nourishing, not interesting. I hope Rogue will bounce back after this lacklustre offering. If history have taught me anything, I’ve certainly forgotten it by now.

Just not a fan of this one. Copper colored pour produced a decent white head. Aroma is subtle roasted malt, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is sweet...has a ESB quality...with caramel, honey, and citrus finish. Not their best effort.

Butters (3863) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2010
I totally appreciate what these guys were trying to go for. Big fan of the GYO movement. Nice clear light amber pour with decent white head. Nose is sweet mild hops. Flavor has more of the floral hop bitterness, kinda like potpourri. as well as some faint biscuit backbone. Lingering earthy bitterness. Pretty good.
