An India Pale Ale or an IPA is traditionally darker in color and tend to have a much stronger hop flavor profile. The Rogue Brutal IPA is surprisingly light and citrusy.
The nose is sweet with citrus but nicely balanced with a hops aroma. The taste explodes bright citrus notes. The finish is subtly bitter from the hops. A far more balanced IPA than the more traditional version, perfect for a hot summer day.
