3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear, golden with a big BIG foamy head(almost white, light yellow hues) leaving behind lots of great, thick lacing and lasting(somewhat) to the finish. Reeks of cascade hops and sweet honey malts; smells very balanced, lightly fruity(pear and other assorted candied fruits), sweet. Very full body for a pale ale, soft carbonation, but there’s lots of it for a creamy mouthfeel turning watery with warmth, but still full bodied. Front is lightly sweet, like a cane sugar style sweet, weak honey with definite hop presence that increases with time; hops of pine flavor, apricot, grapefruit rind bitter
(the white part, not the outside), dry and long lasting finish of apricots and grapefruit rind--actually pretty balanced. Fruity, kind of sweet, dry, nice finish; not the best, but very drinkable and a nice pale ale. Keeping the bottle for laughs. Afterthought: I finished this beer 10minutes ago and the aftertaste is still with me and about 5minutes ago it turned mostly to juniper//pine. I'll be eating something soon.

Cloudy golden color with a big white head. Crisp and refreshing taste but you can tell it's got a bit of a kick. No wait, it doesn't. Smooth with a mellow malty finish thats not too sweet.

What a flavorful, easy to drink ale. Strong hint of berries mixed in this bronze colored beer. I thought this beer was going to be some gross beer with a fancy name, but I was wrong. This beer is great!

Bone white head towers over a muddy amber/orange body. Aroma is citrusy, notes of orange, peach, lemon, straw, flowers. Texture is very soft, palate is pleasant, balance is good, hop presence is small. All in all, a good and delicious ale, and do I detect a hint of juniper? I should, because it's in there! Good job, Rogue, on another tasty and unique beer, but, for God's sake, watch out where those Huskies go!!!!!

No real head at all on top of a beautiful cloudy copper that has a rather high turbidity. Spicy nose and flavor with a light undertone of the hoppy. Pretty good. Dumb pic on the label, like all their other beers, but the beer's good so I guess it's forgivable.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour with a spicy aroma. The flavour is also spicy but with hoppy undertones. A drinkable beer

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 Smells fresh and hoppy, with an undertone of toated malts. Flavor is a repeat of the aroma, with a pleasant bitterness and warmth going on there, as well. Very little carbonation, a good orange straw color. Good lacing. Very good example of the style.

Not much to look at, slightly hazy with no head, very yellow. Hence the name. Sweet taste in the mouth with a pleasant hoppy finish. Not too bad.
