This is a damn fine brew, different. Hoppy, with a sense of carmel, copper, and light chocolate malt. Nice amber, almost reminds me of an imperial amber. Lots of cascade hoppiness in the flavor with only hints of grapefruit, and plenty of yeast. I hope Im still alive in the morning but you know what they say Red Sky At Night, Sailors Delight...

This has a great balanced aroma. Everything about the hops is balanced. Its very smooth, not weak at all. Nice sharp hop bitterness about half way through. This is a nice beer to sip on. And the fact that its dedicated to sig and his bros is even cooler.

KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 8, 2009
Bottle at Olympen, kindly shared by OleR. Tobacco aroma, malty sweetness, fough hoppy dryness. A hop showcase, I dont get the feel of all those maly elements.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a hazy orange/brown with nice tan head. Aroma of pine hops, citrus, some caramel malt. Taste is strong resinous pine hops, some spice. Sticky mouthfeel. Another solid beer from Rogue, but definitely not a top 10 Rogue for me.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours a beige head with legs and a copper-amber body. Smells of cascade hops. Flavor is fresh hops and malt sweetness with some lemon zest. Finish has a nice bitterness.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2009 Tasting courtesy Butters 6th cellar reduction. Brown copper color. Cat piss and citrus nose. Plenty of hops and light malt as well. Bitter hoppy flavors. Hops are everywhere on this beer. Malt doesnt show up on the palette until the finish. More balanced than I originally gave it credit for. It does have lingering flavors.Nice long finish. Hops dominate a little. But I dig it. Re-tasted, and have boosted the rating a touch from a 3.4 to a 3.6.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Bottle shared at the 6th Cellar Reduction. Hazy purpley with reddish highlights and wispy faint tan head. Nose is upfront huge citrus hops, like pineapple, and a little alcohol heat. Flavor is nicely bitter, but not too much malt backbone. Cool idea.

dchmela (3031) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours a dark brown hazy with a thick off white head. Nice citrus, floral hop aroma. Taste is bitter hop and caramel malt sweetness blending well together. Not sure what the style should really be, but good nonetheless.

Sigmund (6950) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2009
1 pt. 6 fl. oz. bottle, as Rogue Captain Sigs Northwestern Ale, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Hazy brown colour, huge light tan head. Nice aroma of fruity American hops (Horizon, Amarillo and Cascade). The flavour has a considerable malty sweetness with hints of caramel, which probably is necessary to balance the 80 IBU. The fruity and resinous hops add more to the flavour than just bitterness, but the finish is nonetheless quite bitter. Good stuff.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2009
Bottled at Srbon, Bromma, Sweden. Pours out in a hazy dark amber colour with a fluffy tan-coloured foam. Dry ish grassy hoppy aroma with caramely and piney undertones. Medium-bodied with notes of caramel, crystal-malts, grass and grapefruit. Medium-bitter dryish finish of grapefruit, grass, crackers and mild spices.
Earlier Rating: 3/8/2009 Total Score: 3.7
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy ruby amber colour with a low yet firm white foam. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit, lychee and grass with sweet undertones of caramel and berries.
