Was anxious to try this ale since it came out in October, and finally got my hands on one. I was not disappointed. 14.5 Plato (5.8 ABV Approx), classified as American Amber/Red Ale.
Appearance: Cloudy Amber in color with light tan head. Head held fast for a good 5 minutes, and left really nice lacing on the glass
Aroma: Slightly fruity malt aroma, not a strong nose
Taste/Mouthfeel: Up front get the malt, then the hoppy bitterness kicks in with a slight citrus honey finish.
I would definitely buy this again. A portion of the proceeds also goes to support the Fisherman's Fund. I love Deadliest Catch, and Sig Hansen's boat is my fav. Cheers to you Sig, and Rogue!
I would give this beer a B+
