Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) has officially announced that it will launch Gumberoo West Coast IPA as a new Year-Round offering in February 2022.
The latest offering to join Batsquatch and Colossal Claude in Rogue’s Monsters of IPA Series, Gumberoo is a West Coast-style India Pale Ale that has “a subtle hop aroma with piney hop flavors up front that give way to a light tropical fruit body.” Coming in at 6.8% ABV and 66 IBUs, Gumberoo has a finish that rocks “a nice blend of malts, fruit and pine with a lingering bitterness.”
“The story of the Gumberoo is a fascinating one that we can all learn from,” says Hagen Moore, VP of Marketing and Creative. “As the story goes, three loggers were camped in the woods drinking beers and entertaining the idea of illegally harvesting old growth sequoias for extra cash when the ground suddenly shook with a heavy footstep. Bigger than a bear with wild eyes and jagged teeth, the Gumberoo rose from behind a stump with a mighty roar. As the loggers scrambled to escape, beer spilled onto the fire causing smoke to fill the air. Some say the forest only wanted to send them a warning that night as this stroke of smokey fortune helped hold off the Gumberoo while the loggers got away. So remember to respect our forests, put out your fires and always bring cold beer camping.”
Gumberoo is rolling out now and will be available Year-Round in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft. You can expect to find this new offering at craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Rogue’s distribution network. Prost!
