extreme hops all around but a tad too light, a fitting name for a beer that looks like piss

A good beer, not as good as their stouts and dark beers. A thin head, and a thinish taste are what I remember about this beer.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 Pours slightly murky deep yellow with medium head. Aroma is probably the strongest and richest I've experienced. Taste is of bitter citrus, very hoppy, very refreshing, a nice bitterness that I enjoy. Leaves your mouth feeling dry, another good point. One of my favorite Rogue ales. There is some quality about this beer that resembles sucking lemons. Your palate is left in a whimpering ball in the corner of the room. This beer does amazing things when teamed with fish & chips with copious amount of malt vinegar.

Reminiscent of Sam Smith’s Pale but better. Awesome nose of big malt and fruit. The brew pours a clooudy medium honey amber. The collossal off white dense and fully lasting creamy head has outstanding lacing that sits on the side of my pint glass in huge chunky sheets. The flavor has outstanding balance and depth. This is what it’s all about for me. Starting malty, the brew has a moderately acidic middle and a long finish that is sweet, warm, bitter and spicy. The medium creamy body is soft and finishes dry. I can find no faults, this is a masterpiece. The only thing better would be a big plate of fish and chips between bottles.

Juniper berries in beer - friggin’ genius. Nothing involving juniper berries could ever be badin my book. A few more would have been to my liking. However, they added interesting notes to the aroma, but not much to the flavour. A nice pale, well hopped, cleverly named.

Nice clean finish, with hop to it. Another good beer by Rogue.

Interesting brew. Pale, some nice spices on the palate. Quite crisp, and nicely dry hopped on the finish.

Hops and malt in the aroma, amber, small vanilla head. Hoppy, malty, candy flavours, bitter aftertaste. Bitter sweet, a nice Pale Ale. Kudos to Joe of Smokeless Joe’s for the widest selection of Rogue Ales in eastern Canada!
