Rogue "Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale"
Rogue Ales - Newport, Oregon USA
India Red Ale (ABV 6.2%) (IBU 80)

[Best served in a Shaker glass]


Rating: 3.5/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a hazy medium brown with an average (1-2 finger) light tan creamy head that lasted a good while, reducing to a thick residue and had nice sheets of lacing.

The aroma was a tad sweet with a grain malt, pine and citrus hops and a sweaty yeast, with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit & orange) and a mild fruity ester in that rested in the background.

The taste malty sweet with a big dose of caramel and a mild fruity presence in the beginning, then slowly progressed into a mildly hoppy taste with a bitter citrus peel finish. The flavor was short in duration with a mild bitter-sweet citrus taste left behind.

Mouthfeel was right between light and medium in body with a dry creamy texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall a very impressive brew with a great caramel sweetness which offset the hops extremely well...
