Brewed in honor of Bob Brenlin, long time friend of John Maier and Rogues 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.

Feinschmecker (202) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Copper color and a little hazy. Subdued malt characteristic. Fruity and citrusy, yet smooth. It is a session beer.

On tap at Green Dragon, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. This had to be off - smelled and tasted like sucking on some of grandmas stale butterscotch candies. Im rating what I tasted, but Id be willing to reconsider the rating upon another tasting, but for now... gross.

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.

Location: Tap at Blind Tiger, 5/9/10

Aroma: Nose of citrus hops and some caramel malts
Appearance: Hazy orange color, thin white head
Flavor: Taste is balanced, leaning hoppy, caramel and citrus
Palate: The body is fairly light, decent mouthfeel, refreshing
Overall Impression: My first rating using the Ratebeer app for the Droid, this could be dangerous. I rated it at the bar, but Im updating it from home to add my formatting... Solid beer.

Scouser (349) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2010
UPDATED: APR 23, 2010 Cloudy orange colour with lots of white lacing. Very mild citrus and bread aroma. Citrus hops, yeast, and alcohol in the taste. Not Rouges best brew, but not bad.

Shared this w/Dhrjericho at the BitterCreek in Boise. Pours a murky golden orange color. Aromas of citrus hops, caramel malts. Flavor is bitter and hoppy with a touch of pepper/grapefruit with sweet malt.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2010
On tap at the brewery in Newport. Clear bronze with a creamy white head. Aroma is equal parts earthy, biscuity, and grassy. Slightly sweet pale malts lead the palate, which finishes nicely with grassy hops and medium bitterness. I had pegged this as a nicely done euro strong lager. A bit different for Rogue, but still very nice.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2010
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a cloudy, deep orange-red colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is very flowery. Lots of sweet oranges and a light lemon with a sweet, lightly grainy caramel. A bit of a tropical fruitiness with a hint of crystal sweetness. Flavor is similar, but leans more towards the bitterness. Plenty of floral hops and citrus with a sweeter caramel and crystal malt. Finishes with some sort of wet grain taste along with a touch of toasty toffee, light pine, and more florals for a medium level bitterness. The bitterness is nice, but seems a bit off balanced in that its plentiful at first, but then drops off a tad and comes out again more in the finish. Dry with a lengthy aftertaste after a medium-full body and light amount of soft, creamy carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer. Lots of flavor and plenty of floral bitterness, but it seems just a bit off. Not off enough to keep me from enjoying it, but enough to keep it fairly average. Despite that, this was alright.

Pint @ Brouwers Cafe. Wow, I certainly didnt expect this. Im a big fan of Rogues brews but this one was just a dud. No aroma to speak of. The barest hint of this "special" malt from France and mostly just bitter. Also a little flat, but that may not have been the beers fault. Totally one-note and blah.

Sample at Rogue Brewers on the Bay. Pours a hazy brownish-orange color with a thin and creamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Saaz-type aroma along with some earthy malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, malt, wood and earth. Fruity touches too. The finish is citrusy hops that lingers a bit. Above average overall.
