Boutip (4636) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2004
Bottle – Poured a yellow brew with a nice large head with standard retention. Aroma is really sweet with nice touché of hops and malts coming out of my glass. Taste is incredible with the usual sweetness and refreshing taste of a pale ale but with added bonus of juniper berries. I love the taste of gin and I think I find here again but without the strong alcohol content. Another truly great beer from Rogue and one underrated beer in my own opinion.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2004 2002 release: Thick lasting white foamy head. Liquid is cloudy "yellow snow" color. Nose is malty, some hops present. Flavor starts with some malts and transitions to mild pine hops with a hint of juniper berries. Palate is bit on the watery side. Needs more quantities of everything.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2005 5/2005 Rerate: Juniper flavour way more up front here. The junipers are barely perceptable, so what you are left with is a rather dry, citrusy APA. And there are better and easier to find APA’s out there.

Nuffield (3657) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Amber-yellow color. Dusty aroma. Simple, basic session beer. Fruity sweetness strikes my tastebuds after I swallow. Some dry bitterness in the finish. Nothing too exceptional. (on tap at Rogue Ales Public House, Portland)

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2004
Every now and again, you come accross a beer that blows your mind. This is one of those beers. Dark gold body with a small head. Aromas of hops and citrus that are really balanced very well. Taste is slightly hoppy with some nice bitterness in the back of the throat. Big thanks to Doug Shoemaker for hooking me up with this one!

Duke (117) - New York, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Cloudy gold. Big foamy white head with lacing all the way to the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, floral. Good palate. Nice balance. Really enjoy this one.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Big hearty pale ale with an unfortunate name. Poors a deep cloudy golden colour. thick head with nice lacing. Great balance between bitter and malt, thick body, dry finish.

mm this is pretty good. nice smell, small white head, a little bitter tasting, yet good. has the taste that all rogue beers have. this brewery doesnt make a bad beer, second only to the anchor brewing co

To be kind, I suppose I could say that this is a very distinctive APA. To be honest, I can't say it's all that pleasant of a distinction. The malt character did get better as it warmed, but the balance is off, and the finish is lingering acidic. No reason to do this one again.
