3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at The Local Taphouse, Sydney. Hazy golden with a massive frothy off-white head. Great lacing around the glass. Fantastic aroma and flavours of tropical fruits, pine needles, citrus and biscuity malt. Great balance and a smooth bitter mouthfeel. Finishes fruity and more pine. A dangerously drinkable IPA...excellent!

650ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange / amber with a decent head that sticks around. Massive candied orange peel, grapefruit on the nose. A little peach. Beautiful. As for taste LOTS of grapefruit. LOTS. Tropical fruits too. Confirms my love of West Coast styled American IPA’s.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours a golden yellow with a long lasting white head. Aroma is heavy on citrus and floral hops. Tastes like citrus and grapefruit with a moderate bitter finish. Enjoyable IPA and interesting to try a single hopped amarillo IPA.

Pours a hazy orange with nice off-white head. Flavors of grapefruit, resin, pine and a bit of an alcohol burn. Good, clean finish. Nice IPA, not world class... but nice.

Unimpressive IPA. Not that far removed from yellow snow. I continued to not be impressed with Rogue.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet with a lot of citrus overtop of floral hops. Flavor begins with a juicy citrus flavor but quickly you taste the floral and peppery hops. Very dry through the middle and a very lingering bitter finish. A bit too dry and bitter for me, but nicely crafted.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Pours a cloudy gold with a good off white head. The head is creamy and lasting. Leaves spotty lacing. Has a good aroma of spruce, floral hops, and a touch astringent. Has a good carbonation. The flavor is hoppy and good bitterness. Gives a nice burn. Has a resiny texture. Has a medium body. The finish is real good and has an awesome aftertaste. This is a darn good beer.

22 oz bottle. Pours a yellowish amber in color with a cloud-like pure white head. It has a floral, citrus aroma. Flavors change from an astringent phenolic character to a mild citrus with a sweet malty part in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a small, sticky white head. Aroma of floral and woody hops, slightly peppery, with a light vegetable smell. Sweet, light malt fades to bitter, woody, floral hops that linger awhile. Can definitely detect the Willamette hops, which I am not a huge fan of. Still a good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured the beer from a large bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a strong citrus and grainy hops aroma with some spices too and a bit of malt. The color was a cloudy amber with a smallish creamy white head with light retention and cling. It was a grainy bitter beer, with a touch of sourness too, good flavor. The beer was lively and fizzy with good carbonation and a filling mouthfeel, and was on the wetter side.
