In my opinion this should be sold more places. Great full tasting beer. Very filling. Perfect hop/malt combination. Keeps me thirsting for more!

My bottle is alias, "Sharks Tooth." Smells like honey and lavender. Taste builds on this with hops, caramel, and sweet malts. Round, medium mouthfeel with warm gold-feeling sweet finish. One of the most pleasing finishes I’ve tasted lately.

Has that typical "Rogue" hop malt taste to it. Roasted malts. Very tasty. Rated 3/23/03

Hazy, golden color. Clean, malty aroma. Malty leadoff with a straightforward clean and lingering assertive bitterness. Very clean yeast seems to have left minimal esters, but hops impart a slightly buttery, citrus floral tail end. Medium-bodied and very pleasant!

Another one of Rogue's brews that doesn't quite get the due it deserves. Pours a honey color with an impressive white head that lasts through the whole beer adn leaves a nice lace down the side of the glass. Smells very floral with some sweet malt. Taste is crisp. Cascade hops definately make an appearance but it's not overly hoppy by a long shot. It's mostly floral. Plenty of hops sweetness. Mouthfeel is very full and has a hint of a mineral feel to it. Drinkabilty rates high as I'll definately be having more of these.

The color of bronze with a thin, but perfectly sustaining, white head. Rogue signature nose with that heavy, solid, raw hop aroma, citrus, and that fruitiness that is classic Rogue, and the sweet, syrupy caramel malt. Flavor is lighter than anticipated from the aroma but incredibly complex none the less. Just when I think the beer is going to finish a particular way, something else pops in and changes my assumption. Each swallow is like a catalyst activating a new flavor component. First, it is a spicy hop flavor, then a dose of caramel, then bitterness fighting with viscosity. This is the type of ale I could drink too much of. Another winner.

Now "Jazz Guy Ale" : after warming on the counter for about 10 minutes, I still un-capped a gusher; big bottle into a snifter. Rich amber color with a sticky tan foam, a bit murky as well. Citrusy hops come straight to the nose. Hops seem to dominate the flavor as well, potent and dry, but an unexpected maltiness opens up and carries this along. Perhaps a bit over carbonated, I would like a higher gravity version. Still, Rogue continues to hit. Comes in under $6 at my local.

nuts, toast, orange, cloudy, light sweetness, flat. Nice nutty nose, a bit of burnt toast. Appealingly cloudy orange. Well balanced sweetness. Tastes as if they used very high-quality water. Excellent mouth feel; full of flavor yet disappears quickly off the tongue. Japanese imprint says 6% abv, yet listed as 5%... For what it’s worth it doesn’t taste like a 6% at all. If they’re hiding an extra percent in here, they’ve done a damn good job of it. Surprised by this, and will definitely seek it out in the future.

Nice golden color. Hoppy nose. Nice balanced flavor with maybe a little more hops than i like. Still a great easy drinking ale.
