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...

Poured from a "bomber" bottle into a standard pint glass
Deep amber in color, with a big, thick, creamy head of foam
Aroma-Malt and spices
Taste-Spicy, fruity,definite malt backbone-a nice hop bite leads to a rather long, bittering finish.
Bottle gives no real indication as to what type of beer this is. I pegged it as a malt-based pale ale, with some spicy, almost rye-like flavor. It's a little different take on a traditional American pale ale-and a pretty tasty one. I was pleasantly surprised. Well done!

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!

Big props to my neighbor for splitting this bomber with me.

A - Pours a cloudy caramel / copper colour with a red hue and a finger of head. Head retention is pretty good, with a thin layer lasting throughout the pint and leaves a nice amount of lacing.

S - Scents are dominated by floral hops, but the finish is caramel malts, almost a buttery caramel scent.

T - Lemon citrus hops come off the top with some chocolate malts following through. The finish is bitter and the butter caramel lingers on the tongue.

M - Very light and goes down very smooth. The carbonation is perfectly balanced, not too bubbly, but enough to keep it from having a syropy feel.

D - Extremely delicious beverage. Would totally grab a bomber of this again. Perfect for a hop lover (even though the flavour is mild, it's definitely noticeable), but also has a nice malt presence for those looking for a balanced beverage.

Poured from a 650 mL bottle into a pint glass. No freshness date to be found.

A - Pours a crystal clear amber-brown. Quite dark for an American "Pale" Ale. Yields 1 finger of off-white head that fades slowly leaving a light ring of lace around the glass.

S - Nice mix of deep earthy, and bright citrusy hops. Hints of caramel and ripe dark fruits come through the haze of hops. Even some very very subtle candied or caramelized orange smells amid everything else. I must say, a surprisingly complex nose for a style that is usually focused on straightforward hop presence with malt usually taking the back seat.

T - Taste is just as the aroma would indicate. Pine and sweet citrus from the hops up front followed by a clean malty backbone. Hints of brown sugar, plums, and raisins follow, adding complexity to the sweetness. Hop bitterness finally makes and appearance midway through and lasts through finish along with the aforementioned "caramelized orange" flavor.

M - Medium, slightly syrupy body with a bitter, dry finish. Some residual sugary sweetness sticks to the tongue after each sip.

Overall, I was surprised by how incredibly complex this beer was. I've had enough IPA's and APA's to think I know what the styles generally have to offer, but this was one that threw me for a loop. My only critique was that Rogue may have been trying to do too much with this beer. With so many flavors and aromas going on, it's almost a detriment to it's drinkability. For a one-and-done type beer, it's excellent though.
