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 Rogues 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

"Deep golden in color"??? Poured deep orangey amber with a nice khaki head...smell is fairly malty with some nice fruits like cherries and something citrus-like...smokey also...maybe something spicy, but I could be imagining that...wow...this is quite interesting to taste...tastes hoppy and spicy with peppers, quickly fading away with a wisp of smoke in the finish...not really good, but quite interesting...

I liked it, but its my least favorite Rogue. Too spicy and way too many hops.

Beer pours orange amber color with a modestly retained beige head. Aroma is quite unique and has lots of smoky, spicy goodness that I associate with the lovely chipotle peppers that I love to cook with. The chipotle peppers in the flavor are restrained which I think is a good thing as far as a beer goes. In fact as I drink this beer the overwhelming sensation is one of drinking one of the Schlenkerla with a bit of pepper bit in the finish. Deep, rich smokiness is the dominant flavor, and it is a good one. As with almost all Rogue products, this is a good one, and under appreciated.

Pours a medium amber with an off-white head. Has a malty nose with a bit of smoke. Flavor is lightly smoked with a bit of heat in the aftertaste. I like this beer very much. Perfect match for barbecue, or lightly spiced food.

22oz Bottle: Deep near-clear amber, almost brown if looked at from the right angle, with a small frothy beige head that quickly fades. The aroma has candy-covered nuts, caramel, hazelnuts, and hints of smoky chipotle pepper, earthy malt, earthy roasted pepper, and eucalyptus. When swirled it releases very subtle hints of citrus & plant leaf hops. If served very cold, youll smell a bit of lemony-raw pepper. Taste is much more subtle than I expected after trying a few other hot pepper beers. Theres a hint of smoked chipotle peppers up front, moderately bitter, followed by just a tiny bit of heat detected on the sides of the tongue (though in truth its barely enough to detect), some roasted chocolate, caramel, light honey, tree bark, and a bit of citrus/earthy hops (though theyre hidden in the background and you really have to work to find them). Finishes with a little bit of heat in the throat and mouth, giving off flavors of smoked chipotle. Light to medium bodied, thin & slightly watery mouthfeel, moderate carbonation levels. Masterfully crafted beer, highlighting the smoked chipotle taste without letting the heat get out of hand and striking a great balance of flavors.

Chipotle Ale: Pecan-orange & clear colored topped with frothy suds that halo. Caramel & candied nuts in the aroma alongside dried fruit, hazelnut, and cream with a subtle underlying peaty smoke and a pinch of sugarcane. Bitterness and palatable smoke flavors greet the tongue...these ride the semi-thin body caping off in tangy smoke. Notes of hazelnuts, caramel, and menthol-like bitterness which I gather is the capsicum from the chipotles..the heat here sneaks up on you and heats up your throat rather than your mouth. All in all, an interesting concoction, but too thin of a palate for the potentially interesting flavors that this hints of.

Chiptole Ale. at first, i coudl taste no hint of chiptole. later it came through stronger... a nice beer, but nothing id want to drink everyday... left a somewhat spicy feeling in my stomach, like i just ate a spoonful of salsa. the effect wasnt bad... but i was really expecting more... the first few drinks the flavor wasnt there... and when it came through.. i had kinda already made up my mind. interesting and worth trying...
