3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Somewhat hazy, golden body and a decent head. Pretty good lacing, too. The aroma is a bit weak, but you will be able to detect the malts and hops if you concentrate. The flavor is also a little on the tame side, but it’s rather refreshing. Good balance of malts and hops, yet I think both could / should be more prominent. Not a bad pale ale, but Rogue has better offerings.

The 22 ounce bottle poured a slightly hazy orange-amber beverage with an average sized frothy off-white head that was mostly diminishing and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was quite hoppy with loads of citrus-like hop aroma, primarily grapefruit. Hidden way in the back there was also a light note of roasted malt. The body was medium-full with lively carbonation and a smooth texture. The flavor started out a little on the bitter side and stayed that way throughout the long finish. There was also a flavor of butterscotch that did not come out in the aroma.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Almost clear golden body topped by a little white ring. Surprisingly characterless beer coming from Rogue. Basic leafy hops, light citrusy notes, diluted caramel, shy cereals, mild bitterness, light body, soft carbonation. Not flavourful at all. Boring. Somewhere between a pale ale and a golden ale. No personality, doesn’t know what it is supposed to be and named after the only species where the male can become pregnant. Coincidence?

Bottle from Rogue, Portland. Cloudy gold/orange. It’s a Rogue style pale ale, bit of sourness on the citrus fruits. Quite light and gentle with decent Rogue hops on end. Fine.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a really nice, foamy white head. The aroma is quite hoppy and citrusy with a bit of sticky caramel. It has just a small amount of chalkiness which slides quickly into more defined lemony acidity. The sweetness is there in a honeyesque fashion, but is not all that dense or complete. Notes of sweetened black tea float around. Meh, pretty boring offering. But, I guess having so many different beers they can’t all be winners, can they?

Very hoppy, bouncy. Good to go, but lemony bitter aftertaste a bit unpleasant. Had this while watching trivia at a New Haven bar. Whee!
