3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep dark orangish amber color. Aromas of big hop action, sweet malts, and more hops. Flavor has some bready maltsy tastes with nice grapefruit and floral hop taste. This is one hoppy sumbitch. Rogue sure knows what they are doing.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample @ Woodshop. Poured hazy copper with a large frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex sweet citrus aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced hoppy flavor with a medium bittersweet bitter finish of moderate duration. Solid complex beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Woodshop[ 5.0. Mellow barleywine nose. Taste is alcohol and spice. Would be an acceptable beer if it didn’t follow about 40 of the worlds best. Based on my original notes I was guessing it was a barleywine, not an IIPA, but the Thomas Kemp I had earlier was the same type of thing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This was on tap at Falling Rock for $4.50 for a half pint. I figured I might as well try it on tap since I am not going to pay $20 for a bottle. Teh color was orange with a white head. The smell was strange and reminded me of lager. The taste was also strange and hard to describe. The bartender remarked that it was "hoppy" but not to my palate. The mouthfeel was very smooth and I could not taste the alcohol. Unless you are a Rogue fan, this is all hype.
Serving type: on-tap

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours mahogany with a thin off white head. Smells and tastes of sticky molasses and resin. Not worth it. Total drain pour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Older bottle recently. Dark in color with a fluffy head. Aroma is really big. Hoppy, pungent, citrus. Taste is not so balanced here. Mostly hop dominated and very bitter. Pine, dirt, a bowl of fresh cut grass. Lingers for a while.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2006 bottle shared by Ryan and Felicia. Pours an amber color. Aroma is really hoppy, mostly floral and grass. Some malt is noticeable on the aroma. And after 3 years I was shocked at how hoppy this beer was. Very citrusy and grassy with a little malt balance. But the hops were the star in this one.
