FlacoAlto (4045) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 16, 2010
A solid, but not overly aggressive pour into my 25cl tulip glass still produces four-fingers of lightly tanned froth that leaves a touch of lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer is a bright, dark copper / red color that shows a brilliantly clear, red-stained, copper hue when held up to the light. The aroma smells of grapefruit zest and a hint of pine (much like Cascade hops), but finishes with a touch of soapy malt and grassy grain. The hop notes seem to have a touch of juniper to it at times, but the nose on this is fairly clean and perhaps a touch simplistic, but certainly enjoyable.

Again a Cascade hop like flavor is found here in my first sip. The beer is a touch warmer than cool and has a bit of a fizzy texture to it, but has a lightish body overall and is fairly quaffable. The finish has a light’ish, but still slightly biting, smooth bitterness to it and there is also a touch of menthol and pine like hop flavors mixed in that linger on the tongue as well. A touch of menthol adds some interest and there is a fair amount of biscuit like malt character underlying the more dominant hop character. More specifically the dominant character here is definitely the fruit hop character; it is most like Cascade, but does have a few more touches of lychee and perhaps some tangelo notes that Cascade doesn’t have and it is quite a bit smoother without the cattiness that Cascade often has.

A fairly simple beer in some respects, but this is actually a very nice drinking Pale Ale. I almost wish it was a bit bigger so that I could better zero in on the Dare(TM) Malt and the Revolution hops. I could see myself enjoying quite a few pints of this brew. My biggest gripe is that it is a bit over-carbonated, but luckily a few swirls of my glass can get rid of the excess carbonation.

garthicus (2826) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 12, 2010
Thanks to Blankboy. Appearance: beautiful hazy orange with a decent snow white head. Aroma: mildly orange with yeast, hops and a weird natural rubber aroma in there too. Flavour: nicely hopped, a little bitter, some fresh grass, nice long mildly bitter finish, a good pale ale.

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2010
22oz bottle shared by blankboy with me and garthicus. Cloudy orange with a large LONG-lasting pillowy white head (4-). Funky/barnyard aroma - mildly acidic herbal grain oil aroma - a bit off-putting, really. Taste is decent - generic light resin/citrus zest bitterness, simple grain and a very light alcohol presence - fairly sharp and biting. Average body, stingingly carbonated, average at best -length bitter finish. ehhh - not bad, but the aroma would probably prevent me drinking it again.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2010
$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 (232) - 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 (17716) - 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.

EithCubes (5308) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 25, 2010
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.

unclemike (2687) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 24, 2010
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 (12415) - 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.
