Going Rogue

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!
