I’ll be honest and say I was expecting a ruby red ale with a ferocious assault of juniper that would have had me reeling imagining I have been attacked by a dutchman (lowercase D for deliberate) armed with Jenever. It appeared much lighter than that with a coarse white head. The juniper in the aroma is subtle, smelling more like a cheeky pale ale with grapefruit and apricot aromas. In the flavour again I was wondering where the juniper was and then I sat and thought about some of the better gins I had tasted. In those the juniper was a balancing item for the other botanicals such as lemon peel, coriander, cubeb berries, chamomile, rose petals, licorice and so forth. Here it is again a subtle balancer for more tart citrus and chlorophyll characters lent by the hops. But you add them to a whole and you get a fresh pale ale with a real astringent bitterness that carries the finish long after it would have been due to expire. I think of this beer as an interesting exemplar of a spicy ale that could have used a little more juniper if I’m honest.

Bottle. Clear golden colour, some white head. Hoppy aroma. Some fruits and herbs. Hoppy and fruity flavour. Light body, high carbo. Nothing fancy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kdm1984 (707) - Missouri, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Tastes kind of like a weaker SNPA with a bit of berries. A decent pale, but nothing extraordinary. Also pretty tame for Rogue standards.

Vaiz (3553) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour, thin white head. Aroma is quite full of herbs, floral, spicy and slightly fruity. Flavor is fruity hops, slightly sweet and quite bitter. Nice balance, thin body. Decent brew.

Nice fruitiness on the nose. A bit watery to taste. And yes, you get the juniper. A decent pale ale.

Luvystypotables (789) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Weak aroma of malt, pale gold colour, with a small white head. Watery feel with a malt taste and a hint of juniper in the finish.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

didierlewallon (141) - ponferrada, SPAIN - OCT 27, 2014
Cerveza de color naranja dorado con una espuma de color blanco. Aroma a malta, baya de enebro y de lúpulos. Sabor dulce y amargo a lúpulos, y a enebro un poco picante . Cerveza bien hecha con un buen cuerpo, pero con un final amargo
