Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) recently announced the release of 5 Hop IPA, the brewery’s newest Year-Round offering and the missing member of their family of Rogue Farms grown IPAs.
To complete their set of numerically themed India Pale Ales created with ingredients sourced directly from Rogue Farms, Rogue Ales has added a little twist by making 5 Hop IPA a Black IPA (a.k.a. American Black Ale or Cascadian Dark Ale). Brewmaster John Maier developed 5 Hop IPA with a hop bill comprised of “Rogue Farms proprietary Liberty, Yaquina, Freedom, Alluvial and Rebel hops.” The selected hops “compliment the Risk and Dare malting barley from Rogue’s farm in Tygh Valley, Oregon” to create “incredible hop aromas and flavors of citrus and pine . . ., with the added bonus of a roasted malt finish.”
“We wanted to put a twist on our hop family of IPAs, and feature not just the hops we grow but also the barley we grow, malt and roast ourselves,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce.
5 Hop IPA is officially available now as a Year-Round release. You can find this offering in 22 oz. bottles at craft beer bars, restaurants and retailers located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of the Rogue Ales distribution area. Prost!
