Rogue Ales Brutal IPA

What the brewers say

“An Imperial bitter with exotic traditional floor malts, citrusy, hoppy flavor, stupendous hops aroma.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Muted hops aroma with pine and spruce notes as well as hints of orange and grapefruit.”

Flavor: “Medium malt presence with moderate American hops bitterness that is a bit more subdued than other examples of the style. Hops flavors are a bit muddled. Slight earthiness. Grapefruit astringency in the finish.”

Overall: “Good IPA with fewer distinguishing notes than others in the category. It could benefit from additional clarity in the hops flavors with more hops bite.”
