Saw this beer on tap at the local brew pub in Rochester, New York. Good colour with a great smell. The taste was phenominal. A good combination of malt and hops, but definately more hoppy...which suits me well. A bitter beer, not too brutal, and more of an IPA or APA than a Bitter in my opinion...but nonetheless a great beer! Tasted at MacGregor's in Rochester, New York.

Murky orange in color, thin head. Sour hoppy aroma. Taste is hops upfront, malty middle and a nice bitter finish. A pretty good brew but not one to die for.

This is a great beer. In my humble opinion Rogue is one of the best breweries in the US and this beer helps to prove that. A multitude of flavors from start to finish and a cool bottle as well. Good job and keep up the good work.

Nice orange amber liquid with a nice haze to it. Nice nose of fruit and floral hop notes. Good malty and hoppy flavor with a wonderul tangy bitter end. Salivatingly hoppy. Nice beer.

Beautiful clear amber with a small white head that fades too quickly into white lace. Sweet malt, bitter citrus hops, and a long bitter finish. I've had IPAs that were less hoppy; true bitters have less body and less malt. This is a lovely beer.

Yes, this is extremely hoppy and it tastes much like an IPA, but drier and with a multitude of grapefruits. Murky copper color...smells like hops.

Wow, this beer rocks! It doesn't look like much (no head, cloudy burnt orange), but it sure tastes goooood. Bit time hops....mmhmm. Malt backbone to balance it out. As others have said, it is tangy near the end. Perfectly balanced beer - makes this hop head drool all over himself.

Sweet malt and hop smell. Nice dark amber color, much like apple cider. Rather a sweet flavor. More of a malt sweetness than any of it from the hops. Palate is rather smooth, with no crisp sense of hops, just more of an overall hop flavor.

Not really brutal or bitter, I was disappointed with the pint I had. Quite watery with a smack of hops at the end.
