Chipotle Ale – Rogue Brewing

From Rogue Brewing out of Oregon comes the “Chipotle Ale”.  I had high hopes for this beer.  The beer pours slightly cloudy orangey amber with a small off white head.  The smell of the beer is of citrus, paprika, smoke and possibly smoked ancho chillies.  The taste of the beer was not spicy at all not one bit.  The beer tasted quite smoky with an almost artificial chipotle flavor and maybe even some wax.  The beer was not amazing and we did not finish our glasses of the beer.  Not all beer produced can be good and every good brewery (ie Rogue) deserves a Mulligan once and a while.  As a note this beer has an alcohol content of 5.2% with an IBU of 35.
