DocLock (8312) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Rerate from a just delivered bottle to Whole Foods in Cary, NC. Pours hazy canary with a medium head. Aroma of bready malt, some fruity hops, and honey. Tastes hopcity, with a firm bready malt presence, and some fruitiness, including berries, apricots, and peach, in the finish. Well balanced, extremely complex, with a clean, crisp finish. You must try this stuff. As pale ales go, itís at the upper end of the scale.

screigh (490) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2004
Poured a huge foamy off-white head. Settled down quickly but nice lacing. A hazy copper golden color in my glass. The smells to me was of fresh cut hay (thatís a good thing). I get a bitter start with a mild malty finish. Nice beer.

0o9i (439) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 30, 2004
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 thereís 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.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 28, 2004
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!

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2004
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.
