pours a thick amber head that lasts forever but oh my goodness, this beer is hoppy. i'm starting to enjoy the more hoppy beers but this is still out of my league. however, it still is better than the other crap out there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is a pleasing copper/ amber color with a bit of chill haze to it. It pours with a frothy cream to tan colored head. The main aroma is one of a malty biscuit, it is accompanied by a sweet hoppiness. This beer is very malty tasting, and lightly sweet. I must say this is a great session beer, lots of flavor yet it seems to be relatively light. A beer for when you aren't up to being assaulted by hop varieties and dense maltiness. This beer finishes with a balancing bitterness that counterpoints the wonderful mixture of sweet maltiness and hop flavors that are at the front part of this beer. This beer is what I wish Fat Tire was, I know it is a bit hypocritical, but I can still wish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a darker color, and very little head when poured. The flavor is bitter, but it finishes with a pleasant maltiness. All in all it is a decent drink.

Dark ale with a light head. The aroma is strong and hopped, and the flavour is much the same, dry and hopped (nice). Overall a good ale.

Draft: Nice and dry, with a golden to brown honey color. A good malty and some what yeasty brew. Typical Rogue nose and palate. Over all pretty good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2004 Lightly carbonated orange-copper body. Fruity toffee malt aroma. Complex and tasty malt profile with flavors of vanilla and poached fruits. Well-balanced malt sweetness, hop spice bitterness, and light sourness. Not spectacular, but definitely unique and enjoyable. Revisted on multiple occasions, this beer never stuns me, but leaves me consistently satisfied.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a rich, malty aroma. Taste is a ping pong of malt and hops. A moderatly bitter and smooth finish. Like Fathermoss said bitter and sweet at the same time. A fresh tasting, rich and drinkable ale, but I would argue with the bock category. An ESB on steroids maybe?

Nice orange color with a small head. Great play of bitter and sweet between the hops and malt. Drinkable and tasty.
