I tried this at beer fest a few months ago and the person pouring it barely knew what he was pouring, much less anything about it. But I love hops, IPAs and Rogue so I gave it a go. I immediately fell in love with it and put it on my list of beers to try later when I hadn’t had 20+ samples of various styles of beer. It’s a long list.
I finally spied it at my favorite shop and had to contain my excitement because I’m pretty sure they already think I’m a weirdo. (no comments from the peanut gallery)
Anyway, I picked up a bottle & was very pleased. It’s obviously very hoppy, as it has 7 different hops, which are grown at Rogue Farms. It’s not punch you in the face hoppy or too bitter, there’s citrus & pine notes which hit your nose before you even taste it. There’s a bit of a malty taste to balance it all out.
This is definitely one that I would but again …and if you’re participating in the #50BeerChallenge, which you should be, you can get Oregon out of the way.
