Oregon craft brewery, Rogue Ales, has announced the release of 5 Hop IPA, the missing member of their family of Rogue Farms grown IPAs. Joining 4, 6, 7 and 8 Hop IPA, 5 HopBlack IPA is the black sheep of the Rogue hop family.
“We wanted to put a twist on our hop family of IPAs, and feature not just the hops we grow but also the barley we grow, malt and roast ourselves,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce.
Rogue Brewmaster John Maier selected Rogue Farms proprietary Liberty, Yaquina, Freedom, Alluvial and Rebel hops to compliment the Risk and Dare malting barley from Rogue’s farm in Tygh Valley, Ore. The field guide-style illustrations on the the bottle depict the hops inside.
5 Hop IPA features the incredible hop aromas and flavors of citrus and pine from five varieties of Rogue Farms hops, with the added bonus of a roasted malt finish. Find 5 Hop IPA near you using the Rogue Finder tool.
