650ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown
Poured a nice crystal clear golden copper colour. White head with coppery hints poured big thick and foamy with a meringue like topping then faded slowly to good covering with thick edging... barely any carbonation bubbles... lots of sticky lacing...
Aroma - Lots of juicy mouth watering (slightly tropical ?) fruitiness (grapefruits, oranges, magnoes), light sweet caramel malts, buttery, some bready notes, honey, citrus and grassy hops, light pine, quite floral, talcum powder traces, faint rubbery notes, the faintest hint of clove...
Taste is pretty similar to the aroma... slighty tropical tart fruits (grapefruits oranges, limes), good peppery and citrus hop bitterness balanced by caramel sweetness, chalky traces, light metallic notes, quite biscuity...
M&D - Smooth initially with a little sharpness underneath... medium bodied... an extremely quaffable brew - just slightly above sessionable at 6.0%
Overall - An excellent APA... one of the best i've had in a while. If this was readily available i would always have it in my cupboard... highly recommended...

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.

What is Oregasmic Ale? Well strong caramel as soon as you open the bottle and pour into a glass. Orange citrus up front on the taste and a nice balanced hop on the finish. I could get use to this one. I bought it on a whim just because of the name and while it is not That sexy it is a a good beer, one for special o occasions though!
