Rogue Gumberoo

Just bought today, 1/14/2023, they have no marking on cardboard box, but saw after opening this was canned on 2/10/22. Damn I hate buying old beer!

Very sticky sweet aroma of hops and caramel malts. Taste is mostly smooth with a little bit of a hop edge on the back end. Almost mediciny-like taste comes in, a mix of malt and yeast. Finishes with a dry palate and a slight edge of hop bitterness as the malt/yeast sweetness crescendos and then fades.

3 out of 5 stars.

Upper Hand IPA

Clean crisp aroma of hops and a bit of yeast sweetness. First taste slices through the palate cleanly with a hoppy edge and mild caramel malt sweetness right behind it. Finishes cleanly with a nice yeast flavor showing up, again supported by hop bitterness and mild caramel malt. Amazing flavor balance of all three with a full flavor punch that somehow doesn’t feel too heavy.

5 out of 5 stars.
