Cloudy amber color with a medium white head. Ripe citrus aroma. Taste is grapefruit, raisins, some toffee, and of course a nice hoppiness. Light to medium body. Balanced, bitter sweet ending. Excellent.

14th August 2014
GBBF Day 3. Cask. Lightly hazy amber beer, few pale cream colour bubbles not forming a head. Good fine carbonation. Nice condition. Caramel malts dominate the start. Spicy orange hops on the backend. Dry finish and a spicy linger. Not bad but slightly too malt dominant.

Gravity at GBBF 2014. Poured a hazy golden colour, with no head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops and carmel. Grapefruit hop flavour, with grassy notes and a mellow fruity sweetness. Finish was hay, toffee and gentle hops.

650ml bottle shared with Finn and Kjell at Café Sånn. Patchy surface. Fragile lacing. Hazy orange coloured body. Ripe citrus on the nose. Rich taste of fresh and dried fruity hops, apricot, pine,and orange. Mid-dry, well-rounded bittersweet ending. Warming alcohol. Nice (Tromsø 23.08.2014).

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from grocery store. Pours a cloudy amber color with a medium white head that has fair retention. The aroma was big and bold with mixed citrus. The taste was not quite so bold as the nose would suggest, I get grapefruit, mango, grapes, persimmons; all set nicely in a moderately malty caramel base. The palate was full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finished medium in duration and dry. Overall: This is the first Rogue beer I’ve had in several years and I’m pleasantly surprised as its not that bad. Paired nicely with a homemade anchovy pizza.
