This evening I am drinking Chatoe Rogue First Growth Single Malt Ale brewed by Rogue Ales in Newport, Oregon. This is the second beer I've had in this series, where Rogue grows all of their own ingredients. The first was their Dirtoir Black Lager. They use GYO meaning Grow Your Own. Again, this one is dedicated to Farmers and Fermenters.
Fruity peach and mango aroma, surprisingly, but also hoppy with plenty of citrus. Fruity flavors start but are immediately attacked by lots of bitter lemon rind and other citrus, too. There is a dirty and medicinal band-aid flavor that starts up about that point. This beer leans way bitter with rough carbonation and off flavors. Much too lemony as well. A little sour with some bad aftertaste. Not good, and Dirtoir Black Lager kicks this beer's ass in every single way! I'd skip this beer for a few dozen other Rogue beers!

I'm starting to get a little bit annoyed that I can't find pictures that I have taken. But lucky for you, I found the Acai Berry Wheat one from yesterday.What I'm saying is that you are not going to see this one, today, but go to the Dirtoir post from above. The picture is practically identical minus the name.
