NachlamSie (3210) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 28, 2005
bottle. This is a murky light brown with a thin head. Quite a citrusy aroma on this one with some underlying sweet malts. The flavor is also quite acidic with some spicier hops too. More citrus in the finish.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 28, 2005
(Bottle) Cloudy amber body, foamy beige head, so-so lacing. Aroma strange combination of hops, maple syrup and dirty sock. Bitter. Smooth. Nice body. Not bad but doesn’t seem like a finished product.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2005
Bronze. Big, bubbly, off white head. Big hop aroma-resinous,citrus,pine-some sweet malt, also. Same flavor, very bitter, great with spicy food. Medium body, nice carbonation level. Good brew.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2005
Cask (gravity dispense), GBBF, August 2005. Not that brutal, but firmly assertive. Orangey copper colour. Clean hoppy aroma. Oranges on the palate. The hops are not over the top and are well integrated. Sharp, crisp and fresh. Very juicy. Top drop.

It might be just me but with the rogue beers I feel they have an after taste. I am not a huge fsan of there beers.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2005
22z bottle. Orange-amber hue. White frothy head. Very floral in the nose and in the mouth. A lot of sweet hop in the nose also. Crisp, bitter flavor with a nice citrus note. Another quality Rogue product and a great Bitter.

Ratman197 (12814) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Bottle poured a cloudy golden amber with a small offwhite head. Aromas of pine, carmel, orange and bread. Palate was smooth,a little resiny and dry. Flavors of bitter orange peel , pine, bread and a hint of carmel.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 15/20
Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2005
A bright pale copper, thin layer of egg-shell white head. Candied orange aroma; flowery, spicey. Very pretty hop flower this Crystal. Flavor is initially orange peel bitterness. That rind flavor that coats your mouth in a somewhat dominating way. In subsequent tastes, the bitterness begins to blend with the rest of the flavors and a bit of unassuming malt sweetness comes through. Fairly light body, but the chewy quality of the hops makes it feel thicker. This is certainly one of the more fragrant beers I’ve had in a long while. I’m a bit disappointed though--the balance is off, with just too much chewy bitterness not enough backbone, taking this from Epic Status to just pretty good.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Draft. Hazy ambery pour. Fairly hoppy aroma, with definite citrus and grassy notes. Medium amount of malty flavors. If the purpose is to showcase the hops, then I’m not sold on adding more of a amlt backbone to it. Strong bitter finish. Good beer.

BitchesBrew (715) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 [bottle] Pours a nice amber/orange color, with a decent head. Sweet, hoppy aroma. Flavors are malty on one end, bitter on the other (as expected). Kind of a let-down, I had higher expectations.
