Rogue "Brutal IPA"
Rogue Ales - Newport, Oregon USA
IPA (ABV 6%) (IBU 59)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 15/20

The pour was a light hazy orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white frothy head that was mostly diminishing and had some fair spotty lacing.

The aroma was kind of mild of a light biscuit malt, citrus hops and a cobweb scented yeast with notes caramel and citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was bitter and lightly sweet with a caramel presence early on, and progressed into a nice bitter hoppy taste that was a tad acidic with a note or citrus towards the end. The flavor hung on for a long while with a tasty hoppy citrus finish.

Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall a nice basic IPA that was hoppy, citrusy and quite tasty with an awesome drinkability...
