4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From pint bottle. Pours a slightly hazy russet red with some lighter highlights and a persisting off-white head. Fine carbonation. Aromas of pine needles, lemon, raisins, fresh apple, sweet biscuits and gentle spice. Taste is soft fruit at the front before a firm pine resin & lemon zest bitterness emerges. That falls away leaving sweet malt and some cocoa powder with a bit of spice (nutmeg?). Medium bodied and well rounded. Really good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy red/amber, with a frothy white head sticking to the sides of the glass. Aroma is citrus and some pine with mild biscuit malt in the background. The flavor is a direct hit of citrus rind complimented with spiciness. The malt comes across as biscuit and toffee. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Overall ok, thought it was lacking hop aroma. Might not have been the freshest bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice change from the west coast IPA formula. Pours a murky brown with lots of head. Slightly sticky, moderately heavy, creamy mouth feel. Nicely carbonated. Mostly malt with some biscuit, bread, gingerbread and chocolate. The hops are floral, with a small amount of spice and apple but with moderate bitterness bitter. This is a complex IPA and a rather strong showing from Rogue.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Rogue Bar SF. Pours a deep amber with a thick off white head that fades slowly. Nose is mainly citrus and thick toffee malts. Floral hops also can be found. Taste has a nice juicy citrus hop bitterness upfront with grassy tones and toffee sweetness adding at the backend. Pretty solid stuff from these guys

Bottle at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Oxidised toffee aroma. Some ok hop on the finish but way too oxidised to be pleasant.
