look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Just coming off a sub-par pilsner (Victory's Prima Pils, which I understand most everybody else likes), this brew made my mouth water. Nothing special in appearance, kind of cloudy burnt orange, and the nose is pretty subdued, too. But let's be real. The look of a beer matters mostly for aesthetics, and although smell can make a beer great, generally, if you are not put off by it, then it's all good. I tried the OREgasmic GYO last night and was thinking that this would be an other overindulgent attempt to "show off" their home-made ingredients. In fact, this "wet hop" ale is malt heavy, with hops only slightly adding to the body (because the AAs are usually harder to extract on wet hops, which means you'll need to add more to get the desired IBU, but in turn adding body), a very slight earthy taste, and a touch of bitterness that hits upfront and in the aftertaste. The malt body is the shining star here, with a sweet pop right away that transforms into a sort of chocolate/toffee/peanut-butter candy bar toward the end.

Every sip makes me want another. This beer is happy, sweet, slightly bitter in just the right places (like a good piece of dark chocolate), balanced, and pleasant through and though. Very impressed and may just run to Sam's Quick Shop to grab a bunch before they go away from Durham forever.

22oz bottle poured into a glass. It has a burnt orange color body with a 2" white creamy head, that hangs out for a lttle bit and leaves a sticky foam on the glass. The smell has a very nice hop aroma and some malt coming through also. The taste has a very bitter hop flavor with a malt backbone. The mouth is very smooth and leaves a bitter after taste on the tongue. Overall this beer is really good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Served on-draught into an Oskar Blues pilsner glass at a restaurant in SoCal. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a three finger beige colour head of nice cream and thickness, and great retention. Colour is a vibrant copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Sm: Delightful floral hops, clean pale malts, and bright fruit. A pleasant aroma of mild strength.

T/Mf: Heavy floral and bittering hops. Accompanying naked bitterness is murky; decently hidden by the malty sweetness. Shockingly light on the palate and refreshing. Quite light on the palate. Fresh and refreshing. Very wet and smooth. Quite well executed.

Dr: Very drinkable and enjoyable. A tasty IPA from Rogue. I'd have it again - but only on-draught. Surprisingly solid stuff from Rogue; I remember it being worse from the bottle.
