COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in honor of Bob Brenlin, long time friend of John Maier and Rogue’s first draft account in Seattle, where dry-hopped Saint Rogue Red became a cult classic amongst Pacific NW hop-heads! Latona 20th achieves amazing complexity by using just two ingredients. The malt, Special Aromatic, is from France and is produced for a few Belgian brewers. The hops are a new variety, Mt Rainier which grown in Oregon. This ale is highly aromatic from the eathly notes of the malt and the citrusy quality of the hops. OG = 15.6 degrees Plato, FG = 3.9 degrees Plato, IBU approx 65.

anders37 (15493) - Malmö, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2008
Draught @ Brewer’s on the Bay. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Has a malty hoppy aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy flavor with some hints of citrus. Also some hints of caramel. Has a slightly sweetish malty hoppy citrus finish with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

Cybercat (2986) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Comes out of the tap a semi-transparent golden amber with a fine-bubbled, pale buttery head. Aroma is richly malty, very appetizing, with a hoppy overtone. Flavor is smooth, nicely balances malt and hops, somewhat but not overly bitter, with a hint of butterscotch. Texture is fairly smooth and lively, and very satisfying going down the hatch.

GJF (1201) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - SEP 14, 2008
On tap at the sanctuary in Iowa City. Pours a cloudy, light copper color. Thin white head. Lots of hops to it. Citrus and pine with a very dry bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2008
On top at the Sanctuary. Fresh citrus hop and earthy aroma (I agree with how rogue describes it). Small but good looking white head and lacing, very opaque tangerine color. Some spicy sting/acidity in the taste, heavy citrus orange-grapefruit hop throughout with a strong linger along with an underrepresented mild malt backing. This made for a very unbalanced (toward the hop) in my opinion which i usually don’t care for, but this beer/hop variety was unique, and it worked.

Ibrew2or3 (6521) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Poured on tap at the OTH (Oldsmar Tap House). The body has a dull copper appearance with tight white head. The aroma has a malty sweetness, floral hops, a hint of spice and faint lemon citrus like notes. The taste begins sweet with a dash of sweet malts turning kind of nutty then mildly roasty and then again toward a dash of darker roasted malts and some dry malt astringency. The hops start sweet and floral and then the floral hop bitterness builds and builds with a side car of lemon acidity and takes the experience into the finish. Seems like a roasty sort of English style IPA.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. small white creamy head into hazy semi-sparkling muted orange with pretty good lacing. aromas of moderate floral hops and some lighter caramel. flavor is initially bittersweet but finishes just bitter. moderate finish duration. above average carbonation. sticky dry mouthfeel. I thought it was a pretty good am strong.

markwise (4298) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2008
This was an ok beer. I poured a slightly hazy copper color with a zealous head. Aroma was citrusy with hops and some malt. The flavor was much the same. It left my glass laceless, but with a decent bitter finish.

Slightly hazy amber. Subtle hops. Well balanced but still hop forward. Clean with no off flavors. Would take a pint of this any day.
