Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale
2320 OSU DriveNewport, OR
A very slight citrus nose. I kept searching for more characteristics,
but couldn't come up with any.
A very nice dark copper/red hue. Pours a half-finger head from
the tap. The head persists pretty well.
A definite red ale. The hops are there upfront, but nothing
overpowering at all. The initial bite fades quickly. I wonder
if there is rye in here, because the finish is pretty dry.
Slight fruity interludes.
Body is fairly light, but does have a malty backbone after the hops.Maybe a tad soapy or slick.
Overall Impression: (8/10)
This Rogue is a nice offering. The possible rye in here has added
a nice peppery and dry finish. It doesn't stand out from others,
but is very sessionable. Solid.
