Unidimensional, fruity hops fade into a subtle pine aftertaste...Bready yeast accompanies the crunchy grapefruit into this quiet ending...The juniper berries being inconsequential, this pale ale feels as if they cut their Brutal Bitter in half...Well-done but will be hard to remember...

Not a fan. Too yellow and the name really adds to that to invoke urine. Oh well, Rogues are not Gods.

Pale cloudy ale with a long lasting head. Fruity hopped flavour with a hopped and refreshing flavour. A nice refreshing fruity dry ale.

Hazy orange in colour. Aroma is hoppy and grassy. Flavour is of soft flowery hops, grass, some tartness and some fruit (grapefruit). Finishes with a medium bitterness, slighlty dry.

Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in dimple mug. Orangy rust colour, cloudy with a thin but fluffy white head. Aroma has a spicy element with a flowery hopped finish. Slightly perfumy aroma also. Flavour has a deep malt / grain backbone with that hopped spicy ending.

CapFlu (4761) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2003
(650ml bottle) Pours a medium, rocky, white head. Slow dissipation. Cloudy, orange body. Nose of mellowed hops, slight citrus that transfers to the flavour. Quick, uneventful finish?

Radek Kliber (6616) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 23, 2003
More orange than amber. Nice white thick pillows head. Softy malted, creamy, quiet smooth ale. Rouge mark hops are as always there leaving its presence in my aftertaste.

A tremendous little hoppy averican pale ale. In the spirt of SNPA considering the cascade hop character but it has more body and caramel malt. It is a little less dry as a result, an excellent product. Funny that I avoided trying this beer for a few years now because of the vile name.

Pours a nice gold color with a small quickly dissapating head with lots of lacing. Not a big aroma, but pleasant smell of hay and flowers. Good balnce on the front of the flavor with the grapefruit essence from the hops and juniper, although it finishes a little thin. Overall a good APA.
