look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a deep burnt orange color with small bar pour off white head. Some sparse lace left behind. Always nice to see a dark pale ale.

Aroma is nice sweet caramel malts nice fruity/floral hops.

Taste good big sweet malt base for a PA with good hops fruity, floral notes with lingering pine bitterness.

Mouthfeel is solid medium with fairly mellow carbonation.

Overall a good beer then again most Rouges are.

3rd Feb 2013: Rogue Pub on Union St, San Fran.

My second on-tap beer of the evening.

Poured a dirty orange/old gold colour, on top a full head of off-white foam.

Lemon cheesecake smell (baked for too long) with a malty overcoat.

The taste was more malty than cheesecake, but the lemon hints were still there.

OK and interesting.

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

sort of a mix between a pale ale and a hoppy amber. the pours is Halloween orange, cloudy, with a thick khaki head an inch or so tall with good retention. the nose is citrus hops, dry red malt, and mineral heavy water. its iron rich or something, and looks like it with its rust color. it has an orange juice taste to it, fresh squeezed, but isn't acidic. its also really bitter on the hop front, balanced out a little bit by some gentle candy sweetness from the malt. complex but pretty well balanced. unconventional. fuller body makes it more of a sipper than a pounder, but it does have very lively carbonation which keeps it from becoming too filling. overall a solid pale ale from rogue, I like the choice of malts, and wherever that citrusy orange flavor comes from is great. not my favorite in the chatoe rogue series, but a solid brew here.

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.

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.

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.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Clear orange and amber with a thin near-white head. Lines and spots of lacing left down the glass. Very pretty.

Subdued and mild aroma. What's here is nice enough, though it's extremely bready and pretty simple. This is nicely balanced with a bit of earthy and grassy hop aroma and a touch of caramel sweetness, but the aroma is very muted and somewhat faraway.

A very bready pale ale dominated by pale and crystal malts and a touch of caramel sweetness. Moderate bitterness and very drinkable, though extremely simple.

Medium bodied and ample carbonation.

A very simple, bready, slightly sweet pale ale.

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.

A-dark cloudy amber with a thin but stable cream colored head. good lacing.

S-smells like a tamed west coast IPA. tropical fruits and hops. medium strength

T-comes in with a unique peppery herbal hoppiness. the taste along with a good bitterness lasts awhile. there is a great tropical fruits flavor that goes along with this. both flavors make up a good after-taste. this is a great and unique beer.

M-creamy medium to low carbonation with a semi dry finish

O-extremely impressed with this one. me being impressed with a rogue beer happens about once a year and today is that day. this might be the best APA i've ever had. i love the tropical aspect to this. its even better than some of my favorite IPAs.

Cloudy dark amber colour with a foamy off-white head. Fair head retention.

Somewhat grainy malt with a touch of sweetness. Light citrus and moderate earthy character.

Light sweet and caramelised malt with a moderate, punchy earthy bitterness. Good.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Fine.

A decent sort of hoppy, malty ale with good use of local hops and malt.

Drinking my second one at David Copperfield's Ale House in NYC as I type. There were no single IPAs that were new to me on tap, so I went for this Pale Ale from Rogue, one of my favorites.

I was told it was hoppy like an IPA and thats what it is. Frankly this is hoppier than some well known IPA's that I've had. Simply put, IMHO this is an IPA, and I will judge it as such. And it is excellent!

Balanced, with that nuanced bitterness that you want in an IPA. This one is fresh and delicious! Big up!

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

Pours an attractive coppery amber color with nice cap of dense bone white head, almost cask ale in appearance. Scent brings notes of bread, roasted nuts and dull caramel along with some herbal and faint lemony hops. Taste leads with a quick kiss of bitterness, citrus rind and leads into a very bready, nutty and caramely middle (I've had some ESBs with less of these qualities). The hops return at the end with some herbal notes. Medium bodied, creamy, moderate carbonation. Interesting full malted pale with decent hoppyness... very English in its construction.

On-tap at Hoptomic. Pours a brassy amber hue and is capped with a short-lived off-white froth. The nose is mellow, showing as much malt as hops, and not too much of either. What aroma I do detect is vaguely earthy and sweetly floral. The flavor has more of the earthy tone, accompanied by a healthy dose of biscuity and caramelized malt. There is a metallic tone in the flavor that reminds me of a Euro Strong Lager, so that is a big knock against it. The feel is a tad prickly and slightly skinny. Why do so many organic beers suck? No matter, I can accept that they just do. Overall this really isn't horrible, but I'd not be terribly interested to have it again.

Enjoyed on-tap @ Cicero's in The Loop (St. Louis), MO. Poured into a Cicero's Beer School Pint Glass and enjoyed deeply!

Appearance- Received with a dark but clear amber body with a 2 finger head. Retention was great (staying at a half a finger head level for most the drink) but had almost no lacing.

Smell- Very sweet caramel and HUGE grapefruit aromas upfront. Next there were a spicy scent that made the beer even more interesting.

Taste- Has huge grassy and floral hops with the grapefruit coming up again. A nice breaded beer and huge amount of malt. Very bitter but great for the APA style!

Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, and has a slow but steady mouthfeel (kept the hop taste around for more than usual).

Overall- Besides Brutal Bitter, one of my favorite from Rogue now! Has fantastic attributes as an APA and without a doubt carries the name well with "Oregasmic" ale. Would only drink 2 in a night, so drinkability was average. This is a beer to try when having a session night.

I like the 100% from Oregon aspect to this brew.

Orange amber color with a definite haze to the beer. The head was decent given that it was a bar pour. Good spotty lace.

The smell and taste remind me far more of an IPA (despite the 40 IBU's advertised). Good floral hop nose, but the flavor had a stronger bitterness, particularly in the very long aftertaste. The mouthfeel is rich (my preference).

A light amber brew with an excellent off-white head.

I had a name but no style information for this beer when consumed, but pegged it as an Amer. PA in both aroma and flavor -- so it is largely true to style. The aroma indicates that it may have a bit more and a bit fresher hops than usual. Flavor follows aroma, but the mix of hops didn't blend as well as usual for Rogue, IMO. ... perhaps because they constrained themselves to using only ingredients from Oregon.

A - The body is orange-copper colored with some light haze. A small head of off-white foam rests on top and recedes slowly, leaving nice lace.

S - Light, bready malt with some toasted notes and a hint of herbal hops.

T - Bready malt matched against musty hops and strong bitterness. Some spicy notes in the finish and a lingering pity bitterness that coast the palate.

M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.

D - Dry and toasty with a strong hop character. It is really too bitter for the level of malt character and residual sweetness that is present here. I touch more sweetness would make for a far more drinkable brew, but as it stands it just seems harsh and unbalanced.

This is one of the better pale ales that I've had. I bought a bottle of this at the Pioneer supermarket in New York City. Very intense in both malt and hops. Dark copper color, light head. Very cloudy and quite flavorful. Dark malt flavor and great hop aroma.

Scored this at Goebels in Wichita

Pours copper/auburn with 2 fingers of tan head. Superior head retention & insane lacing

S: Faint breadyness

T: Caramel, breadyness, earthy & herbal hops, dryness up front, plus just a touch of woody hops well. Malty sweetness (toffee), breadyness, woody hops & a touch of astringency surface as this warms, some cakeyness arrives to try to balance this out. Finishes bitter & with some astrigent notes, some caramel is hiding underneath

MF: Medium bodied, subtle carbonation & okay balance

Drinks alright, I applaud the risk taking, but this one doesn't really work for me. I blame the hops in play here

BA says this comes out in the Summer, but I don't see any date any where. Well, so far so good from what I smelled and tasted. I'll proceed.

Into a pint glass.

A: ruddy orange to brown colored body with a one and a half fingered white foamy head that concaves a bit in the center and leaves some thick clingy lacing

S: caramel malts up front, some honey and pine and citrus coming in on the back end

T: mainly sweet through the strong caramel and honey notes, but the aftertaste is a combined orange/tangerine/caramel sweetness, sweet dry sticky finish

M: medium, tries to show a sessionable quality but somehow I seem to want to sip this more, carbonation runs kinda smooth for an APA, but still good

O: this just might really be a Summer beer as I can some refreshing aspects that seem to have thickened up as I don't get as many bitter hops as I was hoping for, however, I find it interesting that this held up to being not that bad. I wouldn't mind having this fresh.

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a standard pint.

A: Medium brown. Pours a 1+ finger, frothy, white head. Settles slowly, leaving a thick, persistent foam blanket. Plenty of beer ring lacing. Head renews fully with each pour.

S: Pine, honey, and citrus.

T: Pine straw. Lots of lemon pith. And a woody malt tone.

M: Biting hop character. Bitter and crisp. Dry finish.

D: Sipping experience due to character.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Frothy head, persistent foam, and lots of lacing. Nose is very piney, very citrusy, with a distinct sweet note. Very bitter pine hop, bitter lemon pith, and a bit of woody character. Overall, this is a good quaff.

from notes

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

Floral, herbal notes, slight citrus. Has a solid, slightly sweet, biscuity malt backbone.

Medium body, foamy carbonation. Standard.

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

The IBU on BA and on the bottle is different, on the bottle I have right now it says 90IBU...

Amber looking beer with a very foamy thick and rich foam. Havent seen one like that since a long time. The body color is deep amber while the foam leave a thick residue on the glass.

Smell is bitter, fine hint of hops but a shy caramel presence is there.

Taste at fist is smooth, shy bitterness with a shy fruity hoppiness followed by spices and malt which ends up in a rich bitter maltyness.
