3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught@Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen (aug 8th, 2011). Deep ambery brown colour with a mediumsized creamy head that leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet fruits, mild spicy notes as well as some slight maltyness. A bit sticky sweet alcohol in it. Flavour is being rather much the same with a more sharp hop bite to it. A bit strong in the alcohol compared to the other elements, but 1-2 % less alcohol and this would probably be more drinkable.

Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small tan head. Aroma is fruity, pine, grapefruit. Solid bitter, roasted malty and hoppy. Ends bitter, dry, grassy herbal finish. Different, but nice...a little to bitter for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Whole Foods, P St, DC 22oz ($7): Pours a muddy amber color with an awesome looking off-white head. This looks like a really nice tap pour. Aroma is of floral hops, candied sugar, and malty malts. Soft mouthfeel. Bitter hops leave lingering aftertaste; very west coast. Slightly sweet, especially at the front, with a hint of butterscotch. Does not taste like what you expect an APA to taste like, but I will not say it doesn’t taste good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bubbly off-white head and a nice cloudy orange color. A light aroma of hops and grass. The flavor is spicy, with a hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste and a little bit of sweetness from the malt.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick pillowing layer of foam while the liquid was an opaque yet glowing tea brown hue. The aroma is hypnotizing with a floral scent of earthy hops and organic wild honey. The flavor is heavy and packs an earthy taste of hops, honey, granola, wheat, and a backbone of sweetened malts. This holds a very organic and heavy flavor throughout the entire drink and is very distinguishable pale ale. Bravo Rogue for making another beer that stands out compared to the rest.
