Floral hop aroma. Body is bright and brown-orange. Creamy light tan head. Nicely balanced between hops and malts. Citrus, and candi sugar with a bit of fir tree. Refreshingly bitter and hits the spot after a long day at work… thanks b_ender!!
not bad, not as brutally bitter as i expected, enjoyable...id get it again if in the mood. Drink4Satan (677) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Almost like a mix between an IPA, a Saison, and a scottish ale. Cool stuff. Nice fruity, hoppy taste that also retains a good maltyness along with some caramel. Rogue kills it every time. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Cloudy orange pour with a medium white head. Hops, pine and grapefruit, and malt are prevalent in the nose. Interesting taste. Its like an ESB split with an IPA. Lighter and fruity, but with creamy malts. Not what I expected. cigarsnbeer (146) - Valley City, North Dakota, USA - MAR 17, 2007
Hoppy (Rogue...surprise,surpise!) and very tasty. Amber to light orange pour adn decent head. Always been a fan of Rogue...and this one doesn’t dissapoint!

Bottle. Very light aromas of caramel, hay, herbs and earth. It’s color is a hazy tan/orange. The frothy head on this beer stood out in duration and it’s excellent lacing. Only moderately bitter, it also has a tart element and a nice dry finish. Body is medium light, oily and has a lively carbonation. Nothing real bold about this beer but it’s very drinkable. zamco17 (134) - Corpus Christi, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2007
pours a nice orange and has a great mildly hoppy smell, Taste is nice subdued hops and creamy malt finish. this is so drinkable. crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Poured an orange-amber hue with a thin white head which had great lacing. Aoma was a mix of pine notes and orange notes but the pine notes were more pronounced. Flavor was mildly malty with a yeast forground finishing with a mix of hops and citrus fruits Decent body with a clean finish. bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - MAR 9, 2007
on tap. pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. solid hop aroma. flavor had some malt with a healthy dose of hops. very smooth and drinkable, although slightly lacking in the complexity department. Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Heavy orange in color, poured in a pint. Nice hop aroma and major bitterness. Mouthfeel was like sucking on a balloon. Very well rounded finish and was definitely brutal for the better!
