Initial odor of the head reminded me of cat urine. Had a good head, slight fizzy. Highly hopped with bitter finish (hints of flowers/fruit in there too). Slightly cloudy with golden amber color. Not one of the better Rogues.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Re-Rate 04/29/02: Cloudy orange or deep amber, frothy and generous beige head, decent lace. Nose is malt, slight citrus and floral tones also noted. Front is malt, the top light, the finish is acidic, dry, loads of hops, moderate carbonation, a good beer but not their best, but quite quaffable none the less.

Yum. One of my favorites, so far. Great sweet floral aroma, and a lovely hoppy favor. Wonderfully bitter and hoppy-sweet.

definately citrus aroma, and citrus on the palate, which quickly leads to the bitterness. Damn hoppy beer, and damn tasty

Smells like ruby red, looks like orange marmalade. Beer for masochists.

I like a good strong beer but this one was too much. My friend, Nate, best put it by calling this beer an ESBPA. It was like a very strong ESB in the beginning, strong malts. Then, the IPA came out with these hops that just tore me a new asshole. Good gosh...I appreciate where they were going with this beer, but it just wasnt for me.

Nice grapefruit hoppiness in the aroma translates well into the flavor. Great aftertaste. Minimal malts. Lovely unfiltered orangy body. Not brutal, just a good bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The first whif is nice with a strong citrusy and hoppy aroama. I love bitter beers, but this one seems to have gone a little too far and neglected the rest of the beer. Flavor is slightly citrusy, but the hops take over immediately.

Orange, hazy/cloudy appearance. Organic-sprucelike, citrusy hop aroma. Big hop bite with citrus, grapefruit, grassy, very bitter taste. Love the charicature on the bottle, almost the same face my lager-drinkin budddy made when the hops kicked in. he he.
