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.

Do you also have that beer that does not rank in the top percentile, but has entranced you nonetheless? This is mine. Dry, hoppy, with spice and juniper to create a beer unlike any I’ve been able to find. Indelible.

If the label is correct, this is the best tasting pissed on snow I’ve ever had. I thought the beer was very tasty and smooth

Great Pale ale from rogue, not much juniper to be detected. Nicely Balanced and great hops at the end!

Bootle from BeerStyle home delivery in Singapore. Caramel, cereal, citrus on the nose. Pours a nice orange and a bit cloudy without much head. One of my all-time favorite tasting APAs. Pine. Citrus. Goodness.

Love the color, love the flavor (love juniper, love gin), love the marketing concept.

Slightly cloudy glowing amber hue with a decent creamy head. Strong hoppy nose with grapefruit and floral hints. Massively hopped taste with a good balance. More IPA like than just a standard pale ale. Juniper berrys are evident. Flora and citrus pack a punch on the taste buds. What a simpley fantastic ale. All Rogue ales I have had to date have been superb and this is one of the best.

Slightly chill hazed golden straw yellow color with a magnificent, thickly based, crusty white head sitting atop. It slowly dwindles down to a never moving thick skim on top and the lacing in thickly strewn moth-holed sheets stick all over the place. Pleasing aroma of lightly crisp malts, hinting at a load of other things; soft woods, earth, dust, citrus rinds, dried berry fruits, some leafy hop cones. Overall mildly light and refreshingly earthy crisp and fruity. Nice. Wow, and the taste doesn’t fall short on this either. Quite a nice little treat we have here. Hmmmm....crisp and fruity with little touches of the earthy/woody things floating around. Great hop balance and profile, slight citrus spice, berries and berry twigs and leaves thrown in too. Complexing with a favorable hoppy dryness from some Amarillo hop cones that finish it out with lightly mixes of fruity berry stuff. Nice mouthfeel thats well rounded, crisp, drying for its finish, creamy middling, light grabbing texture of carbonation, and a nearly full body with more mediumness at the front and back. Remarkably yummy and drinkably fun...good stuff! Get it, drink it, and enjoy...I did.

Bright yellow with a copper robe. The nose was very pleasant and mellow, a pretty, malty, citrusy aroma. Super full nectar. This brew was so smooth and mellow. So well ballanced. Fruity with a hint of herb tucked away in the hull and a slight hop on the finish. I really didn’t know if I was drinking it or inhaling it. I highly recommend this brew.
