Earlier this week I was looking for something to sip alongside a dinner of Bison Tacos I was making at home (see Scheff’s Table for the recipe). So, I picked up a couple of cans of Ogden Double IPA from Roosters Brewing Co. and it was a slam-dunk with those tasty tacos.
I assume Roosters calls this beer Ogden Double IPA because the original Roosters location is in Ogden on Historic 25th Street. Whatever the reason, this is a really good medium-bodied, Imperial-style IPA that weighs in at 8% ABV. Roosters describes it as a “True Northwestern Double IPA” with a heavy dose of Cascade and Chinook hops, as well as El Dorado and Idaho 7 for a “piney, citrusy, hop bomb.”
Although described by the brewers as a “hop bomb,” I found the hops in Roosters Ogden Double IPA to be very well-integrated and not at all over the top. By the way, if you’d like to try this brew at Roosters, the Layton and Ogden locations are both open now for dining in (and drinking in).
