Rogue Dead Guy Ale is a 6.5 ABV 40 IBU German Maibock. The appearance is bright copper and the nose lightly sweet malt. The flavor is also soft light and confection sweet ending with a quick hop bitterness, both very well balanced. The drinkability is high compared to the ABV. I'd recommend trying this.
Higher in hops, malt and even alcohol content, the imperial IPA might be offensive to the tongue if you’re not used to it. Those who adapt find it a robust and flavorful option.
