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.

Odd that this is supposed to highlight the malt, because I just barely got any malt character from it. A little bit if sweet, grainy notes, then a nice, crisp hop bite. Slightly piney. Nicely thin bodied, and pretty quaffable. I’ll definitely drink more of this stuff.

I wanted this to be great, but it is only okay. The maltiness is nice for the palate but leaves a little to be desired in the taste category. The hops are a bit resiny for me. There are better beers out there, especially for the price.
I want to support you on this endeavor, Rogue, I really do. But you gotta step your game up

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange with a white foamy head and some sticky lacing. Aroma of orange peel, flowers, cut grass and some light caramel malt. Sweet and malty upfront with a hop bitterness that slowly fades in. Medium body with active carbonation and a dryish mouth feel. Overall a nice Pale Ale, good balance and drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. Poured a light golden color with a small white head and solid lacing. Not much of an aroma, mostly a light caramel malt base with some lemon zest and very light orange. Tastes of caramel, floral hops and lemon zest with just a hint of pine in the finish. Okay beer, but disappointing after how great their Black Lager was.
