Rogue Ales adds Gumberoo West Coast IPA to Year-Round Portfolio

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!

Rogue Ales Adds Outta Line and Batsquatch IPAs to Year-Round Lineup

Rogue2019IPAsRogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) has officially announced that it will launch two new Year-Round IPAs in 2019: Outta Line West Coast IPA and Batsquatch Hazy IPA.

Brewed to be a celebration of “those who have the courage to do their own thing”, Outta Line is a West Coast-style India Pale Ale “that opens with tangerine and mango, balanced by malt sweetness and a crisp hop bite.”  Clocking in at 6.9% ABV and 66 IBUs, Outta Line is a perfect go-to beer “for those who live outside the lines.”

Swooping in from the other side of the IPA spectrum to serve as the first Hazy IPA to join Rogue’s Year-Round portfolio, Batsquatch boasts “bold tropical aromas, flavors of stonefruit and tangerine, and a fruity citrus rind finish.”  Batsquatch weighs in at 6.7% ABV and 45 IBUs.

“In the beginning, 30 years ago, we were told that nobody would ever drink Rogue beers because they were too hoppy,” says Rogue Brewmaster John Maier. “People started calling me ‘More Hops’ because of my love of hop-forward beers and I still wear it like a badge of honor.” Batsquatch and Outta Line aren’t palate destroyingly bitter, but they are intentionally brewed with strong hop character. “These beers are the epitome of their respective styles,” says Maier. “We hope people will enjoy and have as much fun with them as we do.”

Outta Line is scheduled to release nationwide on January 1, 2019 with availability in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft.  Available only in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft, Batsquatch will initially launch in Oregon and Washington only in January with a nationwide release slated to follow on March 1, 2019.  Prost!
