True to its name, it is very bitter. This American style bitter is malty but dry. Loaded with American hops flavor. Hop aroma is not over the top, but they didn’t hold back on bittering hops. Excellent choice with pasta!

JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 Well made, although not very British in flavor. Pours a light orange in color, a bit hazy and with a perfect white head. Aroma is very bitterish, sulfur, malty, slightly grassy, slightly rotten, little tart. Flavor is pretty reminisent of an American pale, moderately bitter(but not aciditic) mixed with malty sweetness. Finish is very balanced upfront and slighty dry on the tail end.

Pours a nice hazy golden orange color. Aromas of nice citrus/grapefruit hops. Flavor starts malty and the hops kick in, nice crisp bitter finish.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2005
I love Rogue’s signature on its hoppy beer. Orangey amber in color with a thick, rocky head from bottle conditioning. Aroma is fragrant with hops that show some perfume, spiciness, and a subdued, though round orangey citrus with a sweet, cotton candy malt foundation. Flavor and aroma are one with the addition of some hard water character giving a chalky nuance to the palate. This is very balanced for a big beer and it is as brutally sweet as it is hoppy.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2006 Lively hops, and nice and smooth on the palate, without the sticky texture. slightly sweet and fruity, but not overdone by any means. I was expecting an ass kickin on my palate. But bitter, it is. Always great brews from Rogue.

Cloudy amber color. Impressive carbonating bubbles racing to the top of the beer. Long lasting white head with excellent lacing. Aroma is nice and hoppy. Grapefruit/citrus notes. My type of beer. Hoppy but very smooth finish; not brutal, as the title suggests. Solid beer! Another Rogue winner.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a big creamy off-white head. Complex citrus aroma with oranges and grapefruit. Flavour start with malty sweetness, but develops quite bitter with a dry finish. Medium body.
