Amber, but not quite as dark as i expected... still looked nice. Aroma was very hoppy and slightly sweet smelling. Flavor was wonderfully balanced... to me, this is what a lot of the "big beers" should be more like... very hoppy, very malty, but it still works together... take a lesson Bigfoot. Actually this beer was very simular to Arrogant Bastard to me.

On tap. A dark amber pour, lacking in complexity. The hop profile was quite generous. She starts more smoothly thant she finishes. Overall, average in nearly every way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color, very little head than thins out very quickly. Nose is of sweet caramel malts and a bit of fruity hops. Flavor is initially hop fruitiness, followed by some great maltiness, and a grassy finish. Begins sweet, finishes bitter. Pretty deent, all in all.

A perfect beer to share with your non-adventurous friends! Copper-toned with a roasty nose with a nice underlying hoppy aroma, this is smooth, light and refreshing. Not big on complexity, but big on fresh malt flavor. Finishes with just enough PacWest hops to satisfy the beergeek and not offend the Lite beer drinkers at your next BBQ!

Pours a cloudy deep red, has a large creamy head that stuck around. Smells hoppy. The flavor is dominated by hops, but the malt doesn’t get a change to come out and play.

Nice looking, with a copper body and a beige head. Aroma is a blend of maltiness and hops. Caramel, citrus, floral. Good body. Flavor a blend of sweet, acidic, and good bitterness.

Bought it under the alias: Sea otter amber ale, 22oz bomber from rogue brew puc in san fran.. stuck it to the light to notice deep ruby color, white head.. nice head, thick. Tastes sort of plain, very well balanced for an amber ale...good for the style.. rogue is a great brewer
