On tap at Stone Brewery. I had this after an imperial ipa so it was very dull for me but i did get some nice spruce and pine notes, a bit watery and mellow. With no head and an astringent finish. Definatly not brutal nor biter... i can use a little work but its good as a refreshing beer.

Rated on October 6, 2006. The aroma was a citrus hoppy smell. The head was small, creamy, off-white with virtually no lacing and the head was mostly diminishing. The hue was orange. The flavor was a moderate bitter and it finished that way for a long duration. The body was light to medium, the texture was a little watery with a soft carbonation. The finish was a light astrigent.

cloudy, golden color. nose is slightly hoppy with some malt. has a nice bitterness to it, i am starting to appreciate bitterness more and more now. it has a nice malt backbone gives it some sweetness to balance it out. this is a solid beer.

Anglofile (138) - Piti, GUAM - DEC 24, 2006
Nice cloudy amber body looks big and has a big frothy white head to back it up. Beer turns out to be quite big and chewy. Nose has a lot of hops in it (spruce, resin) that practically hide the malt and yeast. Also smells like pears and white wine. Taste starts out sweet and quickly gives way to bitterness and a long finish. Nice to see something like this done without the use of cascades or dry-hopping.

Tasty stuff here, i thought this was an IPA though. My bad. pretty bitter route, and expensive for a sixer, 14 bones! I wont buy again because who can afford that?

650ml brown bottle. Amber colour, full frothy white head with sticky lace. Aroma was malty, light caramel, slightly fruity (apricot?) with floral and orangey hops. Good malt flavour, medium sweet, notes of flowery hops. Citrus hops and a good dose of malt to the finish.

emacgee (4598) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Pours a hazy amber brew with some orangeish highlights. The head is medium and off white. The aroma was very impressive. A veritable bouquet. Noticeable fruit aroma. Obvious hop. The flavor was very sharp and dry. Tasted dry hop, alcohol, and mixed citrus. The palate was slightly harsh from the hops and alochol and the finish was fairly bitter.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2006
Pours cloudy, dark amber with a big dissipating head. Lots of lacing. Nose, unsurprisingly, is all hops. Frothy and smooth at first, opens into a spicy bitterness which intensifies through the mouth. Leaves a delicious hoppy aftertaste. Itís sweet, which counters the excessive bitterness. Good stuff.

Bottle This is simply a well balanced hoppy beer. If you want hops, this is good. Not nearly as challenging as the Arrogant Bastard, which is right up there with the killer hops. Itís a bitter, but from the west coast, so itís got that character. Itís got the Rogue nose and palate. Very floral nose, a real bouquet of hops. Tight small bubbles, with limited lacing (though I just rinsed my glass so it may be a little slippery), smooth on the tongue, and nice lingering finish. I remember it being more brutal at the Rogue pub in San Francisco. In a bottle, itís my comfort food

while it isnít brutal, it is almost offensive. thereís also a good amount of spruce and notes of earth and clove spice. not the greatest rogue, but fun to taste. unfortunately, it was a blind taste.
