In bottiglia. Aroma di erbaceo, erba appena tagliata, caramello. Al palato buno corpo, quasi oleoso, amaro da luppolo un pò sbilanciato.

Bottle from Mane Liquor Bar and Grill. Pours golden brown with a heavy finger of lacing. Big burnt caramel aroma, pine, orange peel. Pretty rich malt aroma. Flavours are big caramel biscuit malts, pine needles, resin, bit of citrus. Huge bitterness and chewy mouthfeel. Pretty surprised, fucking solid from rogue.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick frothy layer of foam head while the liquid was a tea brown hue. My nose detected a sweet and rich butter scotch scent which was backed behind a moderate amount of signature Rogue hops. The flavor is subdued and somehow tasting very bland with the exception of some bready malt and bitter hops. This is an alright ale and all, but I think it’s too plain and simple unless you prefer your IPA’s to taste like that. Did however, enjoy the body of this beer though.

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.

Lovely hoppy red ale - well balanced - low bitterness - very satisfying - smooth as - full bodied but easy to smash - Rogue is all good.

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.
