Draft at Friscos. Clear amber with a small head. The aroma is floral and light citrus. The flavor is floral, medicinal, dry with some pale malt. The mouthfeel is thin with a slightly bitter end.

Frisco Grille (Rogue Wave Weekend) - Dark gold, creamy white head. Intense hoppy nose of florals, grapefruit rind, and lemon zest. Flavor is more of the same with a very bitter bite up front, and a very soft sweet malt backbone aiming for balance. Doesn’t ever come close, but it’s not supposed to with a name like this. Medium bodied, pillow soft carbonation, very dry, bittersweet finish. If you want to get your "bitter on"...

Good overall beer, however I was much more impressed with Stoudt’s Scarlet lady than this.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 18, 2006
12 oz bottle. Poured a lovely hazy orange color with a bubbly white head that laced the glass. Aroma is full of sprucy hops and caramel malt. Well balanced hop and malt flavors; mellow caramel with a dry fuity note and a tangy hop finish. Not brutally bitter, but very good nonetheless. Yum.

bindpmc (88) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 18, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 Off-white head, not bad lacing. Not much hits the nose, other than a surprising lack of hops in a brew whose bottle claims it packs such a wallop. A bit of malt when it first hits the tongue, with a pronounced and very appealing peach finish. Tiny bubbles, but still a watery feel to it. Despite the criticisms, not an awful beer by any stretch, but a slight disappointment all the same. Perhaps "Not So Brutal Bitter" would be the more apt name. Although I still feel much the same way, I adjusted my numbers after trying this again tonight with more favorable results.

Big not small biter,more an APA than a bitter due to high % of alcohol which you can taste some heat. Nice use of malts like all Rogue ales which really add to the beer. Nice thick palate. Nice use of hops

Had this on tap at Archer’s Ale House down the street. Medium amber pour with an off-white head that went away pretty quickly. A bit of a sweet citrus aroma. A very mild malt taste followed by strong bitterness that lasted for a while.
