CASK ALERT! Dry Hopped Rogue Mogul Madness (Round 2)

2010 is off to a great start, especially in the aspect of casks.  Tonight, Friday 2/5/10, Rogue Mogul Madness Ale dry hopped with Amarillo.

Mogul Madness is a winter ale, seasonally released by Rogue Brewery, Newport, Oregon.  In the regular release of this ale, 15 ingredients are used —

Malt Profile — 2 Row, Munich, C -120, C-150, Kilncoffee, Carofa’s Special  2 Malts.

Hop Profile — Newport, Horizon, Simcoe, Centennial, Crystal 90, Amarillo, Rogue Farm grown Willamette.

Yeast Profile — Pacman Yeast from Hood River

The cask uses a 16th ingredient — (well, reused again) dry hopped Amarillo.   Dry hopping is the addition of hops to the fermenter or keg (in this case, cask.)   It doesn’t bitter the beer, but adds more of the aromatic hop flavors that get lost in the boil.  In the end, it’s a hoppier version of Mogul, unfiltered and unpasteurized.

Mogul Madness Ale is estimated at 6.5% ABV.   Cask tapped promptly at 6 pm.
