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!

yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2008
22 fl oz bottle. Pours almost golden orange with a lacing white head. Woody, spiced and light smoked aroma. Flavour starts smooth malty and gains a slight vegetable note with a mild burning chili finish. Finish is slowly increasing in burning intensity from the chili.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of caramel, but also lighter notes of alcohol and old fruits. The flavor is malty with primary notes of caramel, leading to a dry end. The chilis tickles the tongue, but the body is thin.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
(On tap) Unclear, light brown with an off-white head. Spicy, malty nose. Medium body with sweet, caramelish touches and some roasted accents - somewhat Bock-like. Rather hoppy finish. Appears inspired by German and Belgian brewing traditions - and then spiced with Mexican peppers. Truly an innovative brew. 280306

omhper (19381) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 24, 2005
Bottled (as Rogue Chipotle Ale). Clear reddish amber. Grapefruity aroma with just a hint of chili. Medium bodied with firm, rounded mouthfeel. Contrary to every other chili beer I’ve had the chipotles just adds to the smokiness to the hop character, and plays a part. The burning sensation is there, but in a controlled way. Where other chili beers goes over the top and becomes painful to drink, this beer stays balanced nd drinkable.

anders37 (16719) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a longlasting off-white head. Malty aroma with some smoky hints. Also some hints of chili. Smooth malty flavor with some skoky hints. Spicy chili in the aftertaste with some bitterness.

fiulijn (14599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2007
Beautiful amber color; thick generous head. The aroma shows a delicate smoke and some malt. The body has an average structure, some malt flavor, stronger flavor of dry caramel, some smokeyness; the Chipotle spicing is very light (and it doesn’t bother). The ending bitterness at the end is maybe too high (with caramel).
