Rogue Promise Gone Aw-Rye IPA has an extremely thick, foamy, tan head and a semi-hazy, amber appearance, with bubble streams. The aroma is of spicy rye and sweet white bread crust. Taste is of those elements, with noticeable, yet not harsh, hop bitterness, hop resins, hop oil, and some caramel. Mouthfeel is high medium, and Promise Gone Aw-Rye IPA finishes drying and drinkable.

As "Promise Gone aw-rye" in Rogue Ales Public House - San Francisco. Rye and spice in the aroma. Hopy, fruity in the back. Dark Amber color, clear. Taste spice, caramel, bit hopy. Medium bitterness. Doesn’t have the body and thickness I was expecting from rye IPA. It’s ok, but nothing special.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of citrus, some pine, earthy. Tastes bitter and peppery with some resiny splashes on the finish.

IPA’s brewed with rye are an interesting offshoot of the standard. This is a good one. If you like this you gotta try Bear Republic’s Hop Rod. Thanks Marc for pulling this one out of the barchive. Since this one was in the bottle for a couple years the hop aroma had dissipated some. The taste was still in tact - full flavored north west hop varieties and that distinctive dry bitter bite the rye provides. There are certainly other adjuncts included that gave off herbal and citrus like flavors as well. This was a great anniversary brew for Rogue.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2006 I had this beer at the 2004 OBF, Portland. Pale yellow in color. An overall nice RyePA.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2006 Bottle obtained in a trade with <a href= target=blank>Larry Pitonka, thanks Andre. Deep orange amber in colour, very thin quickly dissipating off-white head, some leftover lace on the side of the glass. The aroma was plenty hoppy with lots of citrus, pine and some caramel malt sweetness. The hops carry over into the flavour as well. Still lots of citrus (grapefruite and oranges) and pine, soft caramel malts, earthly in the back. Bitter dry mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes dry and lingering. Quite nice.

Bottle shared with tupalev -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a beautiful clear dark orange with a big rocky off-white head. Big hoppy aroma along with rye, malt and caraway seeds. Flavour of rye, caraway seeds, hops, pepper and malt. That’s got to be one of the strangest list of flavours I’ve written for an IPA. I quite liked this -- it’s definitely original and you’ve got to respect Rogue for trying something different.

Bottle that I bought at the Rogue pub in San Francisco shared with Blankboy. Dark orange, big thick off white head - really does look amazing. Strong hops in aroma but also strong bready spices as well - weird. Strong hops in taste, but also really spicy with lots of pepper - I thought bore a close resemblance o the Chipotle in that it seemed to be a good Rogue hoppy ale mixed with strong spices/flavours that didn’t agree with me. Medium mouthfeel. This is very flavourful but those damn spices won’t let go - I find them way to overwhelming. Well made but I simply do not like the taste.

bottle. hazy orange body with a small white head that quickly dissipates to nothing. big hoppy aroma with plenty of yeastiness - nice. very hoppy! in some ways it doesn’t seem as much so as the Glen even though the bottle says it has 22 more IBU. it’s very one dimensional though for a brief moment there are some soft biscuity malts but not nearly enough to even it out. very long lingering bitter finish. alcohol is well masked. pretty damn good.
