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.

On tap @ Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a hazy copper with a one finger off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of citrus and floral hops with sweet malt and a hint of caramel. Taste is the same as aroma. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate to strong amount of bitterness. Very good.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Tap at Barcade: Stuff was fresh! Cloudy orange golden with a creamy off white head (small but strong) Aroma has a great fruity hop character. Some mild tropical fruit notes, lots of peach and citrus (tangerine) Creamy and dense carbonation with substantial body feel. Lots of west coast hop fruitiness, tropical notes of mango and peach with a zesty citrus flavor. Some mild toasted crystal malts and a long resiny finish. This stuff is smooth and has nice balanced character.

JoeinEscazú (1325) - Ozark, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Hazy dark gold with a thick white head. Sweetish and dry-hoppy nose, with faint fruit in aroma. Flavor has an easy and manageable bitterness, straightforward, with a somewhat juicy bitterness for balance. Likable, uncomplicated. Clean.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Poured on draft, a nice hazy copper color with a small (unsure how it was poured) off-white head. The nose is nice and floral, slightly yeasty and some citrus hops. The flavor is a nice strong hoppiness with floral undertones and a biscuit-like breadiness. Very tasty and a strong lasting bitterness. Does remind me a lot of Rogue’s Imperial Pale Ale, still great.

Indra (2570) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 20, 2008
Draft, pint. Fruity, sweet, malty aroma, floral, honeyish and lightly biscuity, with notes of citrus, apricot, pine and some faint melon. Hazy medium orange-copper color with a subsiding, white head. Flavor is actually fairly well-balanced between the fruitiness of the yeast, the sweet, honeyish, lightly toasty malts, and the piney, citric, bitter hops. Lingering dried fruit character. Rather substantial heft and carbonation on the palate, body is medium-full. Pretty tasty.

Derek881 (946) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Sampled from a friend on draft at Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore. This beer had a clear, dark amber color with a good-sized, foamy white head with average retention. It had a slightly muted hop aroma with some citrus and banana tones. The taste was somewhat sour and bitter with a hop character. It had a dry body, after a shorlty-wet beginning, but the full mouthfeel was full despite lower carbonation.

3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Draft at RFD in DC. Mostly clear copper amber colored body. Wet, slick, oily texture, medium to full body, the nose is a mixture of noble-style crusty/fruity/muted hops, somewhat sharp and bold, very unique and different. Full, chewy body with resinous, fresh bran flavored malt base, some chunkiness and toast developing over the middle. Fresh, wet, overall easy to drink, but lacks depth. This is my first Mt Rainier-hopped beer, and they tend to come across as noble in nature but with a high acidity/bitterness/sharpness.

riversideAK (5560) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Pint at Brouwers. Pours hazy gold with a nice fluffy head. Aroma is strong and hoppy with citrus and floral notes. Grapefruit, lemon, orange, and big bready biscuits. A little soapy too. Lots of hops, grapefruit and floral hops, dry biscuity malts. The beer seems soapy to me in a way, but I like the dryness that pervades throughout.

Pint at Peaks Brewpub; Nose of piney hops; hazy gold with a big glass-lacing beige head; flavor is very piney hop bitterness.
