22oz. Bomber

Poured into a Rogue Dead Guy glass a very nice hazy dark golden amber color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger creamy off-white head, with some nice sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some nice hop notes, citrus, and pines. The taste is hoppy, slightly sweet, nice touch of citrus/pines. Medium body. Drinkable, on the bottle it sez India Style Red Ale, this is a pretty tasty brew, recommended.

Deep crimson brown color with monsterous medium tan color head. Nice sticky lace all around the glass.

Huge grassy, citrus hops fill the nose. Some sweet caramel malt is also present. Smells crisp and fresh.

Pretty well balanced between the roasted malt and citrusy hops. Jam like flavors, caramel malt, good lingering hop flavor that finishes clean with a grassy aftertaste.

Medium body, good carbonation. Smooth for the mostpart. Slight dry end.

Good solid IPA. There is something about Rogue's IPAs that really appeal to me. Easy to drink IPA that refreshes. Great balance and well crafted.

A - Poured into a Rogue pint glass a reddish dark golden/orange colour with a centimetre or so of off white head that slowly falls away. An abundance of lace is left down the glass.
S - Smell is piney & citrus fruit hops with a toasted bread malt quality.
T - Like the smell the pine and citrus fruit hops are at the forefront followed by a pleasent toasty bread maltiness.
M - Medium bodied, medium to high carbonation. Quite a strong bitterness but quite smooth.
D - Not an overly complex or out there beer. Just very well balanced with some of my favourite hop and malt combinations.
I want more. NOW!

On draught at the PDX public house, Eugene's 100m IPA is the red IPA that I really love, the flagship of the Eugene line IMHO. Hazy burnt gold with a small off-whitel head that leaves light, scattered lace.

Smell is not to strong or thick, a bit grape soda like, with some very clean alcohol vapors.

Taste is hoppy, definitely the IPA style of red ales, but very smooth and rounded, pine, citrus hops, some apricot like ale esters, pretty strait up, but brite and fresh, yummy! My favorite of the Tracktown brews, I fucking love red IPAs, this one is pretty much the benchmark for me.

Mouthfeel is oily and slick, not to heavy, a nice, softer carbonation.

Drinkability is good, I dig this beer, but it's a beast and not something you can drink to much of. More of a massive BSDA then a quad, at least at this point it lacks nuance. I'd love to see this in *bombers* (don't jack us with the ceramics), would be a great aging candidate. I think it's draft only now though. =(

Pours a hazed chestnut with 2 fingers of peach colored head. This one never clears, very good head retention & good lacing

S: Some pineyness, grapefruit & a hint of fruitiness ( apricots )

T: Blistering piney hoppyness, a touch of grapefruit & some breadyness up front. A touch of apricot, jammyness & more grapefruit hops as this warms, along with grassy hops was well & a kiss of boozeyness. Finishes with some apricot, & tons of pine & grapefruit

MF: Medium bodied with minimal carbonation, becomes pretty smooth as this warms, loses some hard edges, plus a touch of stickyness. skews a bit too raw hoppy for me

Drinks easy, but the hop mix is a bit off-putting for me to session on

I did not see this beer on the list so I added. Not sure what call this brew but its a mix of a red and an IPA. Rogue calls it a India Red Ale. Poured an amber red, like someone pured V8 juice into a light Amber..smelled of hops, at first the head is 1/2 inch then diminshes off to leave some suds on the glass. Mouthfeel is of hops, flora and finshes with a tad bit gof good biterness. Ovrall, good job ROGUE!!!

Just had this on tap in NYC a few days ago. Loved it so much I had to order another. Being a huge fan of reds and IPAs, I loved the combination of both in this beer. Bitter but not overwhelmingly so. Bursting with typical red flavors. Barely tasted the alcohol. Very nice!
