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!

allmyvinyl (4863) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 22, 2015
650ml bottle from Beers of Europe. 5%, 40 IBU, according to the bottle. Pours hazy amber, thick white head. Aromas are malty, caramel, vanilla, light spice, green vegetables. Taste is more of the capsicum, light spicy heat. Clean finish, but not a big fan to be honest.

AtronSeige (776) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 3, 2015
Aroma: Rich, malty. Medium-light peppers/chipotle, caramel. Appearance: Clear amber body. Small, off-white head. Good retention, lacing. Flavour: Medium smokey, peppers. Light toasty, caramel. Medium bitterness, medium sweetness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Very good! The chipotle is the main actor, but it never overpowers the base beer. 650 ml bottle, poured. 21A. Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer 8C. Extra Special/Strong Bitter (English Pale Ale)

skmikeg (1083) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 1, 2015
Pours reddish amber with a one finger off white head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of earthy chipotle, caramel, sweet malts, pine, and some toasted malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and an spicy, semi dry, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty pepper beer.

Goblincat (386) - Westland, Michigan, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Reddish brown pour. Malt, smoke, a bit of chili pepper make up the flavor. It’s pretty good but I wish I liked it more than I do.

Cimbasso (320) - - DEC 14, 2014
Sampled on draught at the Bull in Highgate. Deep golden, going on copper, colour with a white head. This ale starts sweet with toffee flavours and a slight smokiness creeps in. The chilli hit comes later. In between there is an enjoyable fruitiness with notes of quince. Very full mouth feel. The beer is well hopped and has a pleasing bitterness. The chipotle flavour, with its smokiness and chilli heat, is surprisingly well integrated. An excellent and original beer from Rogue.

Honey gold, white head. Wheat aroma. Spicy pepper kick, a bit light on. Smoked? Not bad.

jmgreenuk (5237) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle at the Roadhouse Barbecue, Bangkok. Poured a clear mediun amber with a thin white head. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is moderate bitter light sweet with a smooth resin hop bitter light spice palate. Medium bodied witn average carbonation. Nice and smooth but I hoped for more flavour and a lick in the tail.

60minuteman (943) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Cloudy amber-red-brown with a glass-full of kace and two finger head. Aroma of malt, hop, caramel, yeast, spice, peppercorns and grass. Taste has a slight spiced hop kick. Subtle heat that disappears as soon as the watered down hops come through. Smooth watery palate. Chipotle pepps finally are noticeable on the end.

"this one is definitely unique & spicy (for better or worse) with a roasted quality not found in many chile pepper beers. i’d never be able to drink a 22 of this by myself, so i consider the drinkability low, but it goes quite well with tamales. 7/11-still dont realy dig it. spice and smoke, rough around the edges. eh."
