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

Suprisingly good. A little smokey (Not nearly as much as a rauchnier). Hoppy (Spicey?) Did not feel the heat from the peeper. Very enjoyable. I was expectiin a gimicky beer but was pleasantly surprised at how good it acutally was

From Dec 2005 Poured from bottle(room temp) a nice amber with a huge head that settled down after a while but remained throughout. The smell was malty..can't say any of the peppers made it to my nose. The taste was very malty and then notes of "heat" made their presence and lingered right through the aftertaste. This is a very different kind of beer for me and though I "feel" that this must be one of the better examples of the style, I have to think the style is not for me. Try it and find out for yourself. ;^)

From old tasting notes. Labeled as "Rogue Mexicali Rogue Ale". Hazy gold color. Malty bean and bacon aroma. Smooth, smoky malt flavor with hints of bacon and chipotle. Subtle hot finish and aftertaste.

650 ml bomber. Dark, clear amber pour, small fizzy head, no retention. Aroma is smoky and spicy for sure. Taste follows but there’s little else besides. Just didn’t enjoy this one. Heat seems to be the only feature of the beer rather than complimenting.

Draft. Amber with a beige head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, spices, chili, acetone. Flavour of malts, banana, bubblegum, candy, chili, pepper, acetone. Medium chili burn reinforced by the alcohol. Good as a snifter, would not be able to drink more.

Yikes. The smoke in the grain just overpowers everything. There’s possibly a decent beer under there but I can’t find it.

Bevuta in bottiglia.Dal colore oro carico, ambrato con schiuma media bianca. Al naso miele,agrumi fumo e pepe. Mentre al palato si sente un leggero affumicato. Carbonazione media. Finale leggermente piccante. Non c’è male
