Dangerous Brew: Rogue Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale

12o miles northeast of Dutch Harbor, a crab boat is having a beer named after it.

Bottle Stuff: Dedicated to the Hansen brothers - Sig, Edgar, and Norman - The Rogues of the Bering Sea. Portions of proceeds of Northwestern Ale will support the Fisherman's fund.

Anything else? The bottle actually actually lists the ingredients: Pale 2-row, Munich, Carestan, & Chocolate Malts; Horizon, Amirillo, Cascade & Rogue Farm Willamette Hops, Pacman Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.

What's it like? Pretty straight forward amber ale. It's right on the edge of being too bitter. Some of the hops listed can bring a nice floral quality to a beer. I'm guessing that it's mostly Cascade. It's listed as 80 IBU which is pretty darn bitter.

Cost: $5.49 for a 20 oz bottle
Grade: B
Cost adjusted grade: B
