3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy deep orange coloured body with an impressive copper tint and a thick dense tan head. Aroma of potent grapefruity hops, malt, alcohol and a light spiceyness. Medium-bodied; Strong assertive hoppiness up front with a bitter twang on the tongue and a light metallic quality. Aftertaste shows the bittering hops, some malt and a bit of alcohol - not much else though! Overall, a pretty respectable APA, much better than anything you’d typically see come from Rogue!!! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC on 07-March-2009, sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 28-March-2009.

bottle - Pours mostly clear light amber and has an aroma of caramel malt and lightly citrus accented hops. The flavor is well balanced sweet caramel malt and grapefruit hops. It’s medium bodied with a pretty good balance and overall is a very solid pale ale.

Refreshing sweet lemon and ripe apricot aroma. Clear dark gold, yellow on the edges. Tall white uneven fluffy head, picturesque lacing. Some citrus, but more pale malt dominated. Hop character do not spike, they come on strong midpalate and linger gracefully.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Oliver Twist, Stockholm
Cloudy deep blond color. Aroma of caramel and hops. Caramel flavor, medium dry mouthfeel, strong bitterness, powerful hopping, with light orange peel. Pimped American Pale Ale, good but not impressive; for example, tasted side to side with the 100 Meters Ale, it has less body and less balance.
