I thought this was a pretty interesting ale. I had a love affair with gin, that I had to give up, so I was interested to see what the Juniper berries would bring to the mix. Very subtle. Good brew..

The body has a dull yellow gold color with a creamy white head. The head is about two fingers tall and has good retention. It maintains a small cap of foam that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Its aroma is lighter and much more delicate than I had expected. It has a pleasant light pale maltiness with mellow earthy and woody pine notes. The hops back this up with some citrus and pine like notes as well. The flavor closely resembles the aroma on a medium to full body. It has a nice base of white bready maltiness and mild sweetness with earthy wood notes. The hops then add citrus and pine like flavor and bitterness in the finish. The palate feels smooth but with a good balance of soft carbonation.

Bottle @ home. Clear golden yellow colour with a small white head. Smells hops, malts, slightly grassy, slightly sweet. Nothing crazy. Tastes bitter, hops, grassy, sweet, a hint of caramel. Just nice. Thin to medium body, soft to medium carbo.

12oz brown bottle from Whole Foods into Spieglau glass. It poured a clear golden amber colour with white foam, lasting with lace. Aroma was very very subdued but pleasant:, flavour was somewhat fuller but still surprisingly "bleh" for a Rogue beer. Bready malts (perhaps English base?) just a hint of Munich-y candy sweetness. I LOVE juniper in beer, but sadly couldn’t detect much here, maybe a whif of pepper, citrus, chamomile tea. Light body, average carbonation, faint dank hops in aftertaste (Columbus?). Tasty I suppose, in a very subtle way, but I wish it was overall...more. A missed opportunity, in my humble opinion.

Draft @ beer temple. Decent apa, with besides the notes of hop and malt, some spicey, grassy like taste. The herbs make the beer a bit too sweet.

TET (1641) - FINLAND - SEP 13, 2014
A slightly orange colour, a head is white and weak. The nose is quite unique, fruits, mandarin and some hardly defined aroma that is propably a juniper berries. Taste is fruiful, slightly tropical, medium bitterness, some juniper berries in the end with some roughness. Taste should be more fresh. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Not so fresh as should be, but still good with a twist of juniper berries.

HammerTroll (480) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 29, 2014
Kind of hazy golden color, medium to big off-white-ish head. More sweet than bitter. Malty, some hay, caramel and grass. Thin body, average carbonation. Pretty unexciting for an APA.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orange with a white head. Taste citrus, sweet. I thought this was good. I could drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear golden color, average sized white head. Medium body, soft carbonation. Aroma of caramel, flowers, grass. Light sweet, light bitter taste. Thin, very light, and, sadly, not interesting APA.

Cloudy yellow orange small white head. Spicy and citric hops aroma with some juniper berries touch in the background. Moderate sweet with medium hoppy bitterness, light spicy and grainy notes. Light-medium bodied. Ok.
