I really like dry hopped beers thats why i picked this one out. I really love the art on rogue’s bottles but most of there beers are epicly bitter from what i can remember so i don’t usually get them, however dry hopped beers usually don’t have as bitter of a taste.
This is one bitter red ale, the flavor is really hoppy and it does taste dry hopped, but i can’t figure out where this bitterness is coming from. The beer also has a very earthy taste, its not a bad thing though. The more you drink it the less intense the bitterness gets, when you first crack into it’s a bit surprising. According to the web page alot of the bitterness comes from some fruit flavor after the hop flavor. I can tell that there’s a bit of fruit flavor in the aftertaste but i’m not quite getting it because of the bitterness right after the hop taste. This is a unique red ale that doesn’t mess around. To me it has just too much bitterness, it overpowers the rest of the flavors.
