Rogue

suggests that you pair this up with seafood or something hot and spicy so, I went ahead and cooked Salmon and added some spice to it and it paired really well, just like they said it would. No liars over there. Going to keep this one short and sweet today. DEAL WITH IT!

The Stats:

  •  Style: Pale Ale     
  •  Food Pairing: Seafood, Hot & Spicy
  •  6 Ingredients: Brewed using 100% OREGON Ingredients.
    • Micro Barley Farm Dare™ & Risk™ Malts
    • First Growth Micro Hopyard Revolution & Independent Hops
    • Pacman Yeast
    • Free Range Coastal Water.
  • World Class Package: 22oz Bottle

The Pour:

Pours a cloudy, burnt orange color with an off-white, fluffy 2 finger width head. Good retention. Decent lacing that hung around pretty well.

The smell:

Very malty sweet with a nice hoppy grass back note. Fruity hop bitter smell followed by some bready goodness. Well balanced.

The Taste:

Lightly toasted bread character to start, with hints of sweet malts and caramel, then gives way to a firm, moderate citrus hop bitterness. Hints of spice that are not over powering but, you can pick them up. It leaves you with a subtle, lingering bitterness in that leaves you waiting for the next sip.

The Mouthfeel:

Good carbonation, medium body and a lingering citrus flavor with some bitterness.

The Verdict:

Rogue always seems to impress me and they didn’t disappoint here either. I like how they always try and go outside the box and try new things and now they are even growing their own ingredients? That is awesome in my opinion. I would really like to see some other craft breweries get into this trend. I am for sure going to pick up the rest of the Chatoe Rogue series and I suggest that you do the same.
