This Pale Ale is a part of the Chatoe Rogue series which features trademarked hops grown by a collaboration between Rogue and a hop growing family in Oregon.
Chatoe is also push by Rogue to encourage GYO or Grow Your Own hops. It is unique for a brewery to have their own trademarked hops. Most breweries use hops from widely used varieties.
The Chatoe Rogue series is from the Rogue Tasting room (scroll down the page a bit) in Independence, Oregon. It's a nano brewery and interactive farm - you can check the crops of signature hops or go down to the river to relax.
I bought this at Total Wine and More in Sacramento. It has an ABV of 6%.
The beer pours a light amber color with a thick head that leaves a web of lacings. The nose has light malts with whiffs of fresh, wet hops. The taste has toffee and light caramel malts upfront, there is a spicy hop flavor through out and finishes with a citrus rind, fresh grapefruit hop bite. The bite mellows after a while, but will kick back now and then.
