Captain Sig’s Deadliest/Northwestern Ale

Name – Captain Sig’s Deadliest/Northwestern Ale
Country – United States
Type – American Red Ale

Appearance – Pours a brilliant ruby red color with nice sized slightly tan head.  The lacing left on the glass was amazing.

Smell – Big citrusy hop smell with some caramel malt backing to it.

Taste – Nice earthy hop taste up front with a caramel like malt taste in there.  Finishes with a great citrus hop taste.

I wrote an entry awhile back when this brew was first announced but never thought I would get my hands on it.  I guess Rogue started a wider distribution of it and also went and renamed it.  Originally called Deadliest Ale it has changed to Northwestern Ale.  I like the Deadliest Ale name more but the beer was still extremely good.  Overall it is a great beer.  Also an awesome bottle for any collectors out there.

Overall Grade – A

    I am assuming this is named after the Captain on Deadliest Catch???

    If so, I wonder if that Capt. Sig gets a royalty cut?

      Why yes it is Nate. Rogue actually donates a portion of the proceeds to the the Hansens’ charity.
