Rogue 6 Hop IPA
Rogue 6 Hop IPA is an American IPA, 6.66% ABV. Big thanks to Anna at Rogue for sending BDR a big box full of The Rogue Hop Experience. Looking forward to reviewing them all but I’ve decided to start with 6 Hop which features six varieties of house grown Rogue hops: Liberty, Revolution, Independent, Freedom, Yaquinna and Alluvial hops. This beer in the series is available in 22oz. bottles.
The beer pours with a slightly hazy golden color with strong tones of orange. The aroma brings out some notes of citrus and pine hops, and hints of dry cracker malt. The taste is such an explosion of dank pine that it takes my palate a few sips to get used to the intensity. After a minute or two my palate adjusts and I start to pick out some mildly spicy rye, sweet bread, bitter orange peel and a touch of onion.
This one is allllll IPA… dank, hoppy and bitter!
