Rogue never shies away from inventiveness, a word probably best used to describe this ale which uses actual chipotle peppers in the beer and is dedicated to Juan de la Cueva, who combined peppers and ale. The smoked Jalepenos end up overbearing the flavor although the spicy kick at the end is a pleasant surprise. The ale body is very nice, a mellow blend of cascade and willamette hops, however the overwhelming flavor is spice and smoke. For some reason I feel like this would go well with eggs.
Chipotle Ale: **1/2
