Rogue: We Grow Beer

This month, Rogue releases 10 Hop IPA, an imperial IPA made with 10 varieties of hops grown at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon, including two new hops: Keven and Adair.

10 Hop IPA is the pinnacle of Rogue’s Hop Family series. Brewed with Rogue Farms Liberty, Newport, Revolution, Independent, Freedom, Rebel, Yaquina, Alluvial, Keven and Adair hops, 10 Hop IPA is full of tropical aromatics and notes of pine. Growing hops gives Rogue complete quality control, but more importantly, the ability to brew beers that best exemplify Oregon terroir.

Farm-fresh 10 Hop IPA. Known as “More Hops,” Brewmaster John Maier wanted to brew an IPA that would round out the Hop Family series of beers and highlight the crops at Rogue Farms. “The eight hops we grew before made great beers, but we needed a few more,” says John. “We started growing Keven and Adair hops to round out the profile of 10 Hop IPA, adding citrus and melon aromatics (from the Keven hops) and notes of lemon, lime and dill (from the Adair hops). I love being this involved in the hop growing process, and working with our farmers; it lets me truly grow the ingredients I need to innovate.”
