3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap, poured into a stein. The aroma is initially floral, but turns towards a dank, herb and citrus with a light sulfer/catty smell. It pours a slightly hazy, orange amber, with a filmy and soapy white head that looks like it tries to retain a medium ring and film surface, but both disappear by mid glass. It does leave an ample lace along the glass. The taste is intially a sharp, medium sweet, followed by an acute, high bitter. It’s oily and fuzzy with a medium body that starts with notes of sweet citrus - lemon, lime, and dominantly orange - but this mellows as it finishes with a sharp, herbal, grassy, and waxy bitter along with some spruce. It’s a dry beer, with a sharp, grass and herb, astringent, bitter aftertaste that lingers.

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.

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.
