Rogue 4 Hop IPA
Rogue 4 Hop IPA is an American IPA, 4.44% ABV, the “smallest” beer in The Rogue Hop Experience. This Session IPA features Rebel, Freedom, Yaquinna and Alluvial hops. Like 7 Hop IPA this is available in both 22oz and 12oz bottles.
This is a nice looking beer that has a golden amber color and poured with a solid white head. The aroma is strong with a lot of bright citrus notes and a slightly sweet cracker malt. Whoa, I was not expecting this on the palate… This IPA is super dry with a strong blast of pine and green onion, that is followed by an earthy (almost smokey) flavor that is accentuated by some black pepper. Dry, dry, dry on the mouth-feel.
Personally this is my least favorite of the four beers in the series, but this Session IPA certainly isn’t lacking in originality and flavor!
