Never have I had quiet an ale before, and never have I had any beer from Rogue Ales out of Newport, OR. but when I went out on a limb to conquer another craft brew that I have never tried I found myself very much pleased with the particular brew. It has an over all Honey like color to it, just enough bitterness from the hops which I'm going to assume are Northern Cascade Hops, this brew has become one of my absolute cant do without, and the aroma! don't even get me started. "Fucking Epic" The label on the bottle simple yet striking and also it is painted on which when brewers paint there labels on bottles I find that to be a little more special than stickers.
