Thin head that dissipates relatively quickly. Strong caramel nose. Would not know this was dry hopped if it didnt say so on the bottle. Bitter heavy mouth feel. Not my favorite from Rogue...

Chrishrt30 (98) - AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2014
Pours with a very thin head, dissipates to a light ring no top of a muddy dirty water looking amber ale. Strong caramel, citrus and floral aroma, light dried fruits. Very sharp bitterness up front wet hops, lemon and grapefruit zest, salted caramel and strong pine resins. The finish is fairly thin and bitter, citrus and dry rye bread. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamestulloch (1355) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle from Nina’s Mini Market. Hazy amber/red body with a medium beige head. Steady carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma of caramel, grass, pine and grapefruit. Flavour of fresh hops, pine, caramel and Parma Violets (which I always associate with Centennial hops). Lovely bitterness. Thin body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. Sharp and hoppy - delicious.

budedou (384) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - APR 15, 2014
Gout ambré-caramel agréable en début de bouche et qui tient assez longtemps les houblons viennent sur la fin sans etre très intense, bonne équilibre mais un peu écoeurante

superspak (2572) - Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy deep reddish copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, pine, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, orange peel, caramel, toast, biscuit, floral, grass, light pine, light toffee, and floral/toast earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and solid robustness of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice and pleasant amber ale. Good balance of citrus hop and dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Rogue seems to have half assed brews and more sophisticated ones…this falls slightly to the sophisticated side of the spectrum. Hearsay about the business practices and management aside, this is a decent brew if you ignore the finish. But, in the end, it does leave a bad taste in your mouth…but wait…the after-aftertaste turns back to the good side. Damn you Rogue, get your shit together.
