COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dedicated to Spanish author Juan de la Cueva, who, in 1575, wrote of a Mexican dish that combined seedless chipotles with beer: Chipotle Ale is based on Rogue’s Oregon Golden Ale, but delicately spiced with smoked chipotle chile peppers. Deep golden in color with a tight head, rich malty aroma, delicately smooth and crisp flavor, and subtle chipotle chili finish. Formerly known and packages as Mexicali Rogue, Chipotle Ale is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, and Maier Munich Malts; Willamette and Cascade hops; and Smoked Jalapeno (Chipolte) Peppers. Chipotle Ale is targeted for spring release and available in a 22-ounce bottle and on draft. Blend it with Rogue Chocolate Stout and create a Mole’ black and tan!

Measurements: 12 degrees Plato, IBU 35, Apparent attenuation 82, Lovibond 23

Interesting Ale... real spicy taste, definite chipotle finish! Not my favorite type of ale, but there is an undeniable respect one must give John Maier for this creative concoction.

Amber with a light filmy head and nice lacing. Fruity and floral hops mixed with smoke and peppers, hence chipotle. Hops and malt flavors are built on a nice base of the smoky chipotle. Good beer. Finishes with a little head but mellow over all.

Poured under a Chipotle tap at the Rogue brewing house in Portland. I loved it! Aroma had chipotle in it, taste had chipotle in it. Dark golden appearance. Definately lots of spiciness, but not in hotness. Although its not overly complex, I would have it again to compliment some spicy mexican food any time.

This is a pretty interesting beer. I’ve tried it as Mexicali and under the Chipotle alias. Very creamy mouthfeel. Not a hot spicy, just flavored with peppers. Compliments spicy fried chicken well. Another good beer from Rogue but not one of their best.

Pours deep golden with a medium sized off white head. Aroma of malt and peppers. Taste is thick malt. Very full mouth feel. The hops and pepper flavors combine very nice. This beer deserves more credit than it is given.

Not a bad Rogue. (I haven’t had a bad one yet). This is a well balanced beer, nice malty aroma and flavor. Goes down smooth. I thought do to the name it would be hot tasting, but it was spicy not hot. After a few min. I did get a warming sensation in my stomach, but not unpleasent. Wouldn’t want to drink on a hot day. I prefer this type of beer in cold weather.

Pailhead (4742) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Bottle: Malty aroma with a little spice. Pours a real dark transparent amber with an off-white head that has a little staying power. Lght and malty up front with a peppery spice and nice smoke finish. The smokiness seems to linger into a moderate smoke aftertaste. A little hops in there. Definitely worth a try. Real creamy and smooth mouthfeel.

RogerBurks (45) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 14, 2005
On tap at Rogue Public House in Portland, Oregon on 2/12/05. It’s interesting enough, but the smoke flavor overpowers nearly everything. I rated the palate high because of the "slow burn" that happens at the end. Very peppery and well-executed for what it is, but it just didn’t excite me.

OldGrowth (2645) - North Carolina, USA - FEB 5, 2005
More old notes, Bottle from John’s Marketplace. Ok nose, Lite orange, carmel , some spicy heat. Clear orange color. No head. Bitter flavors, Lite grapefruit/orange. Little roasty. peppery. Thin body, watery mouthfeel, slighlty roasty bitter finish. I remember this having more zip, though that was when I though Sam Adams Boston ale was the the way to go.

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Poured an amber color with a small off white head and no lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet caramel, smoke, and light roast. Taste was smokey malt, and finishing spicy/peppery.
