Okay, so I realize this isn’t a “real” Rogue beer cap… but use your imagination. I thought for SURE I had a Rogue cap in my collection, so I had a Rogue beer on tap this afternoon to blog about. When I got home, I was astonished to find there was no Rogue cap in my collection… what?? Anyway… like I said earlier, use your imagination!
On tap at The Capital Ale House in Midlothian, VA, I tried the Rogue “Brutal Bitter”. I believe it was their IPA, but it was crazier than most IPAs I’ve tasted. If you like a glass of grapefruit, order this. I’m all for a little bitter – but I don’t want to make that crazy “puckering face” after I have a beer. Personally, I didn’t care for it – and thought that the name “Brutal Bitter” was appropriate, as the bitterness was certainly brutal.
This isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy Rogue beers… I happen to know for a fact that the Dead Guy Ale is delicious. That reminds me, I should have one of those again soon… besides, I need a Rogue cap for my collection. Cheers!
