A: deep amber, frothy head-- over a finger tall. pretty unremarkable.

S: some fruit, some hop, a slight biscuit-y malt note

T: balanced, nice malty flavor with biscuits and a hint of chocolate and a clean hop finish

M: smooth, carbonated but not excessively, dries substantially with the hop finish

D: pretty drinkable, not something I'd go bananas over-- not sure what to compare it to, but yet it seems like a lot of things

overall, good, but not remarkable

3.3/5  rDev -12.2%
look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass.

5.0 A: Pours a murky amber with a brownish tint. Two and a half fingers of beige creamy/frothy hybrid head. Very good retention and plenty of lacing. Really a looker.

3.0 S: The smell is incredibly weak. Some hints of caramel malts, earthy hops, and yeast.

3.0 T: This tastes a lot like a decently brewed homebrew due to the intense yeastiness I had going. Yeast gives an overall bready vibe. Caramel malts, sticky resiny hop oils, earthy and piney hops, peach and orange fruitiness. Moderately bitter. Okay, but perhaps a bit yeasty.

4.0 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Chewy and somewhat creamy. Not bad here.

3.5 D: Not a bad beer, just not one that stands out in any way. It's dominant flavor is yeastiness, which I'm not too fond off. To some extent, it seems like a homebrew that hasn't quite finished bottle conditioning.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A hazy orangey-copper with a huge cream colored head that I had to let sit for a minute or two before I could even try to explore the beer. Nice lacing. I could smell a nice does of orange rind as I awaited the foam to die down. Once I got to smell the beer up close the citric aroma remained strong, this time both the fruit as well as the rind, and also showing itself was a nice doughiness from the malt. A very nice and inviting aroma. A fruit forward flavor, orange and lemon, with a bready malt base (that gains in strength as it warms) to this. This beer isn't very sweet, its more refreshing with a touch of bitterness that kicks in towards the second half and carries into the aftertaste. Not much life to the flavor though. A crisp medium body to this with a dry finish. Overall, nothing wrong with this beer but I found it to be quite boring.

22oz bottle. Pours a murky kind of swamp water color with very little head. Some lacing. Aroma is sweet. Picking up on some brown sugar, pine, caramel, and bread. Taste is piney and sweet. More of that brown sugary/sweet bready taste. Slightly bitter. Pretty smooth and easy to drink. Overall it is a decent beer but a bit pricey. Would like to try it on tap before I shell out 8 bucks for another bomber.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

The color is a little cloudy/muddy for a pale ale in my opinion, and the smell is fruity-hoppy with a touch of sweet malt. So far, not a knock-out. The taste is more complex than I think it is at first. It starts out as an aggressive hop attack, but further into the beer the flavors come to life: the hops show their individual qualities, bitterness upfront, and fruity in the middle and then a particularly smooth malt base finishes it off.

Slightly jarring at first, almost falling into a tastelessly unbalanced bitter hop attack (perhaps from the first growth hops, as the crop typically needs a few years to develop), but the tongue gets used to it after a while and the beauty of the individual ingredients come out.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

This beer pours an amber color with a finger of off white foamy head that retains and laces nicely. The aroma is somewhat weak but consists of citrusy hops and bready malt. The taste starts with caramel sweetness and then becomes citrusy and earthy. The beer finishes harshly carbonated but finishes clean tasting. Overall a good beer.

3.38/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

Coppery reddish and cloudy, nice head and great lacing.

Smelled pretty good, quite caramel malty with a hoppy texture that's pretty piney.

Tastes nice and hoppy with no shortage of earthy malt background flavors and a light piney-ness with moderate bitterness. Has a small amount of that particular burnt-malty flavor that I can't quite identify but don't care for. However, it doesn't really take much away from the beer so I'm rating it quite well anyway. A pretty nice beer.

Feels thick and rich, moderate bitter aftertaste and ample carbonation.

Drinks a bit below average for the style. There are other APAs that I much prefer.

Value wise this one would not rate very well. For this price I could almost get a six pack of some APAs that I would rather drink.

Rogue OREgasmic Ale

A: Pours a very nice looking burnt orange with about a half finger of head. Lookks to have medium to heavy carbonation. The hops in this must be lively as there is a lot of action on top of this beer. Its a "good looking" beer from what I can see so far. Slightly reddish in the light.

S: Has a fruity nose to it, nothing like a lambic, but laced with some smells of the malt. I almost want to say an orange and a banana smell, with the banana being more relevant. The malts are subtle, but they smell nice. This doesn't have a heavy alcohol smell to it at all, smells more like a fruit punch or something rather than a beer. Up to you if that is your thing. I think its interesting in a good way, but would depend upon the mood.

T: Its bitter and hoppy up front, the bitterness more present than the hops. Just a hint of the fruit, but this is borderline IPA territory. Its definately spicy in addition to the hops, almost a peppery kind of taste as well, but I dont believe this is blended extremely well. Having a hard time picking out the fruit, when you first take a sip seems like it is there, but the bitterness takes over followed by the hops, and then the spice.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation, not a super easy beer to drink as its carbonation is a little much.

O: I'm glad to see a brewery trying to make their own beer with things that they produce. Its a nice touch, and definately something to be proud of, but I don't really care for it so much. I won't pick this one up again, but if they produce another beer that is purely with their own material I will try a different flavor.

22 fl oz brown bottle served in a tumbler.

Pours a murky, burnt auburn in color beneath a densely creamy white head; very good strength.

Fragrant floral hops with a hefty mustiness. Slightly bitter caramel malt that accentuates the musty, tea quality.

A mouthful of floral bitterness from the very beginning. Sharp citrus notes cut the filmy texture and musty flavor, despite being short-lived. Biscuity malt with a touch of diacetyl. Spicy black pepper attempts to cut cut the floral bitterness in the finish, but fails to do so.

Medium in body; rough and filmy on the palate. Almost leaves your mouth craving water.

A bit one dimensional in terms of flavor profile, but the toughest obstacle to get past is the texture, especially in terms of drinkability.

Poured into 10oz glass. Poured a deep orangeish-amber color with about an inch of light beige head that had low retention but good lacing.

The aroma was very hop forward, lots of citrus with some pine, and just a bit of grainy malt in the background. The flavors were a much bolder version of the scents. There were sharp, tangy hops supported by a solid malt base. The beer had nice citrusy finish.

The body was good, full without being heavy or sticky. Drinkability was good, the beer went down nice and easy. Overall, a tasty brew. It was a bit too dark and hoppy to truly be a Pale Ale, but still one of Rogue's better recent efforts. Try it when you see it.

from notes

Pours a clear, coppery, burnt orange. Foamy, off white head.

A well done American pale ale. Nothing outstanding, but tasty nonetheless.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Teku/shaker glass.
A: Burnt orange/dark amber with big, light brown head, which lasts for pretty long. Medium lacing.

S: At first strong malty - caramel and bread notes, some sweet notes. Low aromas of piney notes, some dark fruit in the background.

T: The taste is very malty and sweet, there are some burnt/roasted malts noticable. Strong carmelized malts backbone. Everything is quite, but not perfect balanced with hoppy bitterness. The taste is Low to medium fresh, grassy and piney hop notes with some low floral accent. The aftertaste is definetely medium bitter with some burnt flavors and tangy character (rye malts ?)

M: Medium body and medium carbonation. Sticky and smooth texture. Finish is dry and sticky. No alcohol warmth.

O: Definetely solid malty beer. There is quite noticable strong bitter hoppy character. There is lack of knocking down hoppy aromas, which are characteristic for AIPAs. The thing could be the problem of time. It came a long way from the US to Poland via Amsterdam, so it could has strong influance on the taste and aroma.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler pint, the beer is a bright orange-brown coloring that is hazy to the point of being opaque. Only a sparse film on the surface, with a slight ring around the glass. The aromas are rich and sweet toffee, with a slight citrusy highlight and a subtle, resiny hopping. Flavors are tangy right off the bat, with a borderline sour malt profile. The hops become much more spicy, with a sharp peppering character, and there is an overall roasty taste that comes forward at the end of the palate. The beer has very forward and direct flavors riding a midbody feel. The aftertaste has a touch of citrus to compliment the tangy sweet malt flavor. The finish is quick, and the hops stay behind to give a slightly astringent, drying feel.

Rogue Chatoe Oregasmic Ale

Pours a cloudy orange color. Aroma of floal hops and sweet malt. In the taste, nice tropical hops, bitter and somewhat fruity with notes of mango, pine and citrus. Medium bodied feel, crisp carbonation. Good hop flavor for a pale ale. Overall, a flavorful brew, would have again.
