Didn't do much for me, sweet blonde malt flavor ending very dry. Not really for me.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large bottle purchased at Edina Liquor and shared with commonshawn and double T’s. Quickly dissipating head on a orange hued ale. I was expecting something more golden or yellow. Aroma leans heavy on citrus but the sweeter end of the citrus spectrum. Taste has bitterness to spare. Slight funky nature. Lingering aftertaste filled with hop resin notes. A little bit of tropical fruit comes through. Oily mouthfeel. A somewhat stock standard IPA. The Rogue trademark hoppyness is clearly spelled out in the snow.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big bottle with commonmac from edina liquor. Light hazy orange with bubbly white head that fades. Nice clean hop aroma. Yeasty citrus hop taste with some funk. Dry and bitter hop finish. Drying but nice mouthfeel. Long lasting finish that gets a bit undesirable at the end.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 5L mini keg! Poured into a shaker glass. Hazy medium amber with a thick cream colored head. Aroma has bready malt and some earthy hops. Flavor has some nice bready malts with mild sweetness and some citrus hop notes with mild bitterness on the finish. Well balanced with a lightly astringent mouthfeel. Overall a good mild IPA.

Bottle. Slightly hazy gold, decent head. Citrus hops that becomes almost tropical by the end. Quite dry and bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of pine resin, white grapefruit, and clay. More resin and white grapefruit pith in the mouth, along with husky grains, powdery yeast, and quack grass. Chunky bitterness. A bit old school, and lacking in sharpness. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This Rogue beer starts out golden but has a bronze finish. Mild aroma with a nice balance of crackery (if that’s a word) malts and citrusy and lemony hops. Quite drinkable but I was hoping for a little better

Sampled from a 12 oz bottle from Applejack. Crisp, biscuit malts, medium bitterness and a touch of sweetness. Solid IPA.

Nice aroma and appearance (light tan/brown color), but the taste is lacking a needed finish. Nothing stands out to make this a great IPA. simply average.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from tap to glass. Hazy orange hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is tangerine, caramel, pine. Mouthfeel is lacking with a medium body and light carbonation. Taste is sweet with a hop bitterness and oxidized finish. Overall this is a so so brew...seems old even though it’s on tap at the brewery.
