On draft at Scotty's

Pours cloudy copper with a decent off white head. Good lacing and retention.

Aroma is on the malty side with some citrus notes, but way too much sweetness for a pale.

Unfortunately aroma carries over into flavor. Very weird profile. Entirely too much sweetness for a pale ale, but still finishes bitter and astringent somehow. Flavors are all over the place.

Decent medium bodied and quite resinous creating a viscous mouthfeel. Got a little cloying.

A complete mess. I'm amazed this is only 40 IBU with as astringent a finish as it has, but way too malty up front. All around mediocre.

Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some nice hop flavors.

Pours dark amber in TEKU glass. Lots of thick off-white head that lingers.

Smell is malty with light hints of citrus hops.

Taste is malt up front. Lot so bitterness that lingers on the tongue. Mild citrus character.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. Lots of carbonation.

Overall this was good. Bitterness balances the malt well.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy copper-amber color, with two fingers of off-white head. Good foam retention and nice lacing. A beautiful beer.

Smell: Malty and with citrus notes.

Taste: Malty up front seamlessly shifting into bitter hoppiness that lingers. Malty notes almost remind me of toffee, not my favorite but very interesting.

Mouthfeel: Moderate body with slightly resinous texture. Strong carbonation without being overbearing.

Overall: Another solid beer from Rogue. Solid hop profile, but the strong maltiness reminds me of an amber or red ale at times. Definitely worth trying.

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.
