3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber, with a large off-white head, which lasts well and leaves reasonable lacing. Charry, slightly nutty malt is overlaid by fresh floral and fruity hops in the aroma. Strong floral and pine resin hops up front lead into a fruitier flavour. Nutty and biscuit malt come in at the mid-palate, with a slight spiciness and some pine hops in the finish. This offers quite a nice combination of hops and malt flavours. An enjoyable ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rated on 3-13-2010 (Bottle) This bottled beer pours a large fizzy ivory head that mostly diminishes, hazy orange body with a red tint, visible carbonation, and a good amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, and grapefruit hops. The taste mimics the aroma. The palate is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer has a lingering hop aftertaste and this beer is one for hopheads.

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.

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.
