Rogue Santa's Private Reserve

A seasonal favorite of mine, especially while putting up the Christmas lights!
It is no secret by now that we love big aggressive IPAs. This one does not disappoint. It is big, medium bodied ale with a nice bitter hop finish. The interesting thing about this beer is the piney/sprucey flavors that come out. It screams holidays with that slight smell of pine trees coming from the added spruce tips which definitely inhance the hop aromas.
Although Rogue makes a lot of different beers, this one is always solid and makes the perfect holiday treat. Enjoy!
