hoppy, creamy like an icemaker’s beverage. Mild, some watery mouthfeel. Cloudy Yellow appearance. Good floral and spice aroma. Good example of APA. Popular import into Ontario. Interesting dry edge from Juniper berries.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Aroma has hints of the juniper berries, not much else. Pale golden in color, thin white head. Gentle combination of malt flavor, juniper, and a mild hop bitterness, the hops fade smoothly into the aftertaste, also gently bitter. Not up to par with some of Rogue’s other beers, but not bad.

I am a big fan of the Rogues, but this beer is not this Cowboy’s favorite. ONE WORD "BUTTER" I do not want butter in my beer and that is all that this beer offers. If you are cold in the snow, skip this brew and find somthing else to light your fire...to keep warm.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle> POurs a bright clear yellow/orange and a nice foamy pale head. Lots of visible carbonation coming up and maintaing a thin white layer and encouraging thick blocky lacing. Very nice sweet aromas of bananas, honey, light toast and just a little hops. Flavor is a mild slightly sweet doughy malt taste, that again is easy on the hops untill the trailing slightly bitter aftertaste. Feels very smoth almost silky. Quite good and I think under rated.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This has a nice clear light copper pour with a decent creamy white head.
The nose is light citrus hops and a bit of malt in the background.
Nice balance throughout with a finish that is slightly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a light amber with a thick white head. Citrusy and floral aroma, with a touch of pine needles. Medium-bodied. Lemon zest, grapefruit, pine, and juniper on the tongue. Dry bitter finish. A nice APA but not the best. Not as good as Sierra Nevada.
