Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Out of the bottle she pours a nice copper amber, hitting the glass with a bit of a dull presence and continuing. Pretty opaque, but some real nice character hues of orange at the bottom to a nice dark tan brown at the top. Head has lots of retention and cap with a big 4 fingers in size. Clumpy and aggressive. Islands of lace. Very nice looking.

Great nose on this beer. Toasty mix of soft malt and biscuit with brown sugar. A slightly tropical and fruity presence, airy and rich. Quite nice

A real nice solid palate borderline juicy, with a good coating. Palate fills with a good mix of malt sweetness and hop. Hop angle continues to a nice bitter pine, slight astringent but a good light toasty brown sugar finishes through.

Overall a real surprising and drinkable pale ale. Quite memorable would easily have again.

OREgasmic ale pours a cloudy copper color with a small lacing head. There is a nice mellow floral aroma, with hints of a roasted malt. There is a very nice mellow hoppyness, all on a nice mellow malty backbone that finishes just a little sweet. Good full bodied flavor, easy to drink. Overall a really nice APA, its very balanced, not a punch in the face pale, but has a very full flavor.

On-tap. Tumbler glass. From my notes -dec´11-. Deep orangish amber color. Foggy appearance. White froth & rocky crown. Some spooty lacings. Fairly good retention.Mildy caramelized malts, slightly bready & toffee aromas with floral & citric notes to the nose. Flavors show woody hops & some citrics over a sweet -no annoying- malty backbone. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily texture. Slightly astringent in the middle. Subtle hoppiness is felt at the finish & lingers on the aftertaste. Refreshing.

Bottle from a friend that brought it to Australia from California.

A - Pours fairly dark copper and bright. Two finger fluffy white head and good carbonation. Quite hazy with the addition of the yeast at the bottom. Good rings of lace and a finger of retention.

S - Some citrus and stone fruits with some nice caramel to balance. Mild yet nice.

T - Stone fruit and some mild citrus again. Reminds me of peaches and plums. Nice Caramel malt component too. A bit spicy as well with a pepper note. There is a certain roughness that comes through in the flavours which is probably the spicy pepper note combining with the hop citrus flavours, and while it seems rough, it isn't altogether unpleasant.

M - Good carbonation, medium body and a lingering stone fruit flavour with some bitterness.

O/D - Not a bad beer from Rogue. I don't think I'd look for it again, but it was nice to try.

Chill hazed orange colored beer with a small tan colored head.

Smell is Northwest hops and sweet malt. Aromas of pineapple, hay, cedar, iced tea and pine.

Starts out dry and earthy despite the sweet smell. Well balanced, earthy flavored but not bitter. Flavors are mostly wood and strong tea.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a decent pale ale that costs too much.

On-tap at the brewery in Newport, OR.

Pours a hazy amber-golden colour, with a solid, almost gelatinous weight to it. Head is a yellowish-white, that forms a fine film and solid ring around the edge of the glass. Lacing is sticky and sheeting, carbonation is powdery. Looks great.

Bright and fresh on the nose, with clean, sharp nuances of white pepper and freshly broken twigs alongside a juice apricot sweetness. Very nicely balanced.

Front palate is light with a hint of pepper, before fruitier notes of citrus rind and peach come through. It's a bit tart and green all around, which develops into a biting wintergreen character on the finish. However, the end is rather clean, and has a rounded smoothness that almost hints at raspberries. Very interesting.

Overall, a very drinkable beer, with lots of interest, and a profile that just makes you want to drink it all day. Nice stuff.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a perfect pint.

This murky red-orange beer has a strong caramel malt aroma with some spicy hops over top. There's also a hint of diacetyl on the nose. The taste is very big on the hops used here, which are a Rogue-unique strain. I get an interesting blend of spicy and piney flavors from them. They seem like they'd be right at home in a pilsner, but still wind up working well with the rich caramel malts and the hint of buttery flavor. The aftertaste is strongly bitter and piney. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied and crisply carbonated, and the drinkability is very good. Overall, this is an interesting take on an APA using a Noble-esque hop strain. It won't replace any of my favourites, but it's worth a try.
