Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2004
Bottle. Dark yellow (how appropriate) pour. Long lasting white head. Great active carbonation visible. Aroma of fresh hops, fruit, and some spice - combined with what could best be described as the "rogue smell". Lovely crisp mouthfeel with a little added body to back it up - a very nice medium bodies pale ale. The bottle speaks of juniper berries, but all I got was a subtle fruity finish. I quite enjoyed this.

Rich golden amber with the requisite Rogue hoppy nose. Slightly maltier than other hop assaults by the mad Oregon brewers, with a thin mouhfeel. Hints of honey and flowers and mild hops. Pleasant but not outstanding lingering sweet blended with bitter finish. Decent.

Rogue has so many good beers. This doesnít make that list. Yellow snow? You know what they say, Donít eat yellow snow. Donít drink it, either. Okay, went for the cheap humor. This isnít that bad. Some floral and citrus hoppiness. Drinkable.

Tessic (926) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2004
This ale pours a dark yellow with a foamy white head. Nothing out of the ordinary for scents though. Sweet scents like corn syrup and malt. Almost a beefy note to this one. First sip is smooth and under carbonated although very good. A little watery. Slightly bitter in the finish and palate. Thick finish.

JadoreBlanche (114) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
Bottle: Pours a dark golden body with minimal head. Aromas of hops, citrus, and slight malt. Tatses of hops, and very bitter. Aftertastes of slight corn. Leaves a bitterness through out the mouth. Very different! Way to go Rouge!

SilkTork (5398) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2004
Nov, 2003: This comes in a bottle which is just over a pint, so as I was filling my glass I kept slurping until I could pour the whole bottle. This stuff tastes so vile, that now I have my full glass Iím thinking - shit, do I have to drink all that! Later... Ok, Iíve drunk the whole thing and it turned out to be a reasonably pleasant ale. The hop bitterness was rather muddy, perhaps due to using Golding rather than some more exciting American hops. I canít say - apart from the initial gulps - that the juniper berries were that noticeable, unless they were responsible for making the hop profile so confused. The sweet malts are pleasant rather than attractive. Acceptable, with flaws.

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2004
Rogues distinct hops are blended on top of the aromatic caramel malts instead of nicely balanced as they usually tend to be in their other selections. Regardless, the apricot ísaffroní colour is spectacular... thereís no head to speak of. Really quite typical of the American IPA. Pines, the juniper is quite bitter and prevalent, florals are nice as well. This is a great brew.

pootzboy (1632) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2004
22oz. bomber with the signature painted label. The pour revealed an interesting clouded golden-orange ale with a nice 1 finger tight fluffy cap and tiny spiraling bubbled carbonation. The nose is a pleasant fragrant hop bouquet..floral, grassy, fruity, with a sweet undertone.( Iím reminded of anchor liberty here) Front side is a mellow blast of sweet malts and fruity/floral hops in almost perfect balance...peaches and pine, apricots and sweet dough...wonderful layered tastes...medium bodied, silky with some substantial malts...moderate finish where the creamy-peach-doughy impression gives way to a slow metallic drying with a fruity character. I like this better than Anchor Liberty....recommened for those who like a fruit character in an aromatic ale.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2004
This poured a deep amber color with a foamy, sustained head that coated the glass as I drank. It has a delicate floral aroma with perhaps a hint of pine. The flavor is actually quite fruity, creamy in the mouth, with a subtle but tastey hopping. Itís got a nice clean, fresh finish, perhaps the reult of the juniper berries.

My first of the Rogue Ales. Has a hoppy taste to it and goes down real nice.
