COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in honor of Bob Brenlin, long time friend of John Maier and Rogue’s first draft account in Seattle, where dry-hopped Saint Rogue Red became a cult classic amongst Pacific NW hop-heads! Latona 20th achieves amazing complexity by using just two ingredients. The malt, Special Aromatic, is from France and is produced for a few Belgian brewers. The hops are a new variety, Mt Rainier which grown in Oregon. This ale is highly aromatic from the eathly notes of the malt and the citrusy quality of the hops. OG = 15.6 degrees Plato, FG = 3.9 degrees Plato, IBU approx 65.

Cybercat (5835) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Comes out of the tap a semi-transparent golden amber with a fine-bubbled, pale buttery head. Aroma is richly malty, very appetizing, with a hoppy overtone. Flavor is smooth, nicely balances malt and hops, somewhat but not overly bitter, with a hint of butterscotch. Texture is fairly smooth and lively, and very satisfying going down the hatch.

A: pint. pours a slightly opaque yellowish orange color. white head. good retention and wonderful lacing. S: grapefruit, some pine resin. some sweet oranges. T: straight up grapefruit. good solid malt backbone. light citrus hop burn. wonderful hop bite. M: clean and crisp. big hoppy palate, mostly citrus. dead on carbonation level. D: phenomenal, though I think this is an IPA and not a stong ale. really enjoyable and highly drinkable.

This was a pretty decent beer, in the small sample that I had. Didn’t think it had that much alcohol and was a bit creamy. For some reason it just seemed like a normal beer. Need to try it again in a full glass to get a better idea.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 16, 2007
On tap at the Drafting Room in Springhouse. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a smaller creamy off white head that left some spotty lacing. Aroma of floral, mixed citrus, earthy, some caramel with a nice level of maltiness. Flavor was hop bitterness, grapefruit, pine, some earthiness, toasted malt, lots of hop flavor yet a malty balance that seemed appropriate.

PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2008
Tap at Barcade: Stuff was fresh! Cloudy orange golden with a creamy off white head (small but strong) Aroma has a great fruity hop character. Some mild tropical fruit notes, lots of peach and citrus (tangerine) Creamy and dense carbonation with substantial body feel. Lots of west coast hop fruitiness, tropical notes of mango and peach with a zesty citrus flavor. Some mild toasted crystal malts and a long resiny finish. This stuff is smooth and has nice balanced character.

Yellowish/Orange on tap at the dratfing room. Mildly citrusy in the beginning, with a powerful bitter and citrusy finish.

Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 7, 2008
On top at the Sanctuary. Fresh citrus hop and earthy aroma (I agree with how rogue describes it). Small but good looking white head and lacing, very opaque tangerine color. Some spicy sting/acidity in the taste, heavy citrus orange-grapefruit hop throughout with a strong linger along with an underrepresented mild malt backing. This made for a very unbalanced (toward the hop) in my opinion which i usually don’t care for, but this beer/hop variety was unique, and it worked.

3.7
gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Free taster at the brewery. Poured a cloudy orange honey with plenty of lacing. aromas of brown sugar, florals, and even some red fruits. Tastes floral, biscuit, malts with a bit of a bitter grapefruit finish.
