UPDATED: JAN 8, 2004 rerate-not changing the rating, but i would just like to add that i sampled this brew on tap at the map room in chicago on new years. Ohh, i forgot to add that the beer was free :)
Wonderful-12oz bottle cost me 3 bucks, but it was well worth it-orange hue, opaque with tons of bouncing bubbles at pour-citrus aroma with hops to boot!!! great tasting and very refreshing, even when it warms a little-pure excellece

Cask conditioned. Served cool, not cold. Smooth creamy mouthfeel, excellent flavor and nice hop bitterness.

Unfiltered cider color and a deep, rich alcohol appearance (it has some alcohol viscosity). Very strong, sweet alcohol flavor that’s very cordial-like. There are definitely hops in the sweetness, but the richness and bitterness is all alcohol. It finishes hoppy-bitter, but still the alcohol is there. A beer I deeply respect, but would not drink a lot of.

A real winner. Much smoother than advertised, without a lot of bitterness. Has an almost fruity quality to it.

Cloudy orange color, creamy white head, small yeasties. Fruity aroma. Spicy cascade hops, nice clean, smooth aftertaste for an IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber and clear, average head, some yeasties floating around and effervescence. The hops come out and really tug at your nose hairs with some strong crispness. Nice flavor, but the mouthfeel is a little bit slippery, not quite matching th crispness of the taste...but this is about the only drawback. Another winner from Rogue!!

Not quite as bitter as i was expecting from the name, but still a good beer. Great Cascade aroma and wonderfully balanced hop flavour with a decent bite.
