tap - Pours copper with a thin, fading head. The aroma mild and hoppy. The flavor has moderately intense citrus hops and a good malt balance. The medium body works well on the palate and leads into a substantially bitter finish.

I really enjoyed this brew. The look is enticing: a copper-orange haze with a white head that didnt last. I was struck by its opaqueness most of all. The nose is somewhat faint, but dominated by citrus hop, most notably a strong grapefruit note. The taste is much the same; not necessarily a hop-explosion as the the beer is kept in-sync and balanced by a malt presence. Finish is bitter as expected (and desired). The palate on this brew, as others have noted, is striking and sets it apart: not watery at all, I found it to be exceptionally thick for a bitter, almost coating the tongue. Easily the most exceptional part of the entire beer.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2006 Bottle. Looks murky, with a copper body and a nice thin white head. Aroma is hugely hoppy, with hints of grapefruit. Flavor does not betray the scent - as this beer is exceptionally bitter from start to finish. The real surprise is how complex (and thick) the body remains. I think Im picking up mostly grapefruit and lemon tones, but it tastes like theres something else there. Rogue has a real winner here.

Bottle. Poured an oragne gold with a massive off-white head. Hops evident in the aroma pleasantly simple floral notes. Bitter throughout but not any notably impressive flavor nor any awe inspiring bitterness. The finish was rich and smooth. Perhaps my bottle was a little old, will have to re-rate if I can get on draft or a fresher bottle.

Poured to a cloudy golden orange with medium off-white head that reduced to a white foam on top and decent lacing. Aroma was very strongly hops, with hints of florall and citrus. Taste was brutally bitter as the name implied, with the hints of citrus agian. Finish was dry, as expected.his was a very tasty beer, and once again, Rogue did not disappoint.

Hazy yellow with light reddish notes and thin white head. Smoke, hops, grape and fruit. Bitterness and hops are well balanced.

skortila (5727) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 15, 2006
Aroma of floral hops, more american syle. Taste is bitter, bit sweet. Floral hoppy, with some malt and citrus, quite nice. Not much balance due to heavy hopping. However quite tasty. Medium body.

DrnkMcDermott (3075) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2006
Bottled. So, really an English malt with a German-derived hop. Smells like German hops when I pour. Cloudy coppery, with a spongy head that collapses from the inside rather than dwindling. A closer smell brings a more familiar Rogue hoppiness; more piney and a bit grasy than citrusy. Thats the first taste. The next taste brings back the sharpness of German bittering, abetted by pinprickly bubbles. Would be a great session beer if the alcohol was a bit less noticeable. But a great beer. For newbies, the best intermediate step between pilseners and IPAs.

Extremely faint aroma of cascade hops. Pours a cloudy, dark yellow with a thin white head. Great lacing. Excellently balanced taste with a medium body and just the right amount of carbonation. Palate has depth - a quick, crisp flash of citrusy hops before a slick finish that unfolds around the tongue and mouth with appropriate bitterness. Its anything but brutal. Thoroughly enjoyed this one and would definitely buy again.
