Rogue Dry-Hopped St. Rogue Red Ale
Always a fan of Rogue’s work and they absolutely did not disappoint here. Red Ales are iffy territory for me, but this one is absolutely solid. One of the few 5 ★ ratings I’ve ever given a beer.
The beer has a nice tan head that caps off the dark brown, slightly cloudy body of the beer. There’s a medium hop aroma, more than your typical red ale, but not as much as, say, an IPA. There’s a sweet, malty aroma noticeable as well.
It has kind of a thin body, despite its cloudy appearance. The flavor echoes the aromas — slightly hoppy and then the malt takes over with some caramel notes. It feels almost like a thin maple syrup in your mouth.
It has all the basic elements of a red ale, but it feels heavier and smoother. The flavor, overall, is very unique. This is stunning beer and would absolutely drink it again without question.Similar Beers
