4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured out of bottle into tulip glass. The most beautiful looking ale I have ever seen. Opaque orange-rust color with 1/4 inch of head that held. Lots of bubbles on the pour.
My nose was at least a foot away when I poured it into the glass and I could distinctly smell the beer. Very bright with pear and citrus, grapefruit the most apparent, with some malt at the end.
Taste: Hops early, grapefruit and accompanied bitterness. Taste stays on the tongue long after.
Crisp and clean texture. Not very carbonated despite all the bubbles on the pour.
It took me a while to drink the bomber. I would be satisfied with 12oz in one sitting. The flavors are a bit too much after a few glasses for me.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 A muddy orange body is capped by a thick off-white head leaving behind considerable lacing.
Aromas are a wonderful blend of sweet grainy malts, and light hoppiness.
Tastes are sweet malts, caramel, and grassy hops, all wrapped up in a rich creamy, full-bodied mouth feel.
Another very solid entry from Rogue, that I’m glad we can get in Canada.

robe beige orangée foncé / Note de caramel acidulé / Peu de gaz .
C’est pas exubérant ça reste délicat et maîtrisé. ça se boit facilement sans être dérangeant. C’est de bonne facture mais un peu léger.
Décidément, je suis pas fan de Rogue même si je leur trouve des qualités.

On keg in The King & Co, Clapham. Clear reddish brown to orange, slight off white foam head. Nose is musty barley grain, caramel, orange marmalade, pine. Smells like a double IPA. Taste is that same boiled barley sugar, musty barley grain, orange marmalade, caramel, pine. Medium to heavy body. Thick sweet flavours. Really an American pale ale?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From 22 oz. bottle. Nice super malty smell out of the bottle with a faint citrus trace also. Deep golden color with strong bronzed head and caked on lacing. OREgasmic is a medium body ale with a kind of fruity sweet but bitterer flavor with the strong malty perception always at the forefront. On the palate this beer leaves a spicy touch and light sweet malt finish. Overall OREgasmic Ale is a firm Ale that I would drink again without hesitation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma intense malt and citrus. This is a very pretty looking beer with initial tastes of resin and pine hop with a solid malt backbone--nice toasty, caramel notes. Mouthfeel was a bit thin, but that’s the only thing I didn’t like. Overall, a marvelous, intensely flavored brew. Worth several re-visits!

Hazy golden with a thin sticky white cap. Nice earthy and herbal blonde hoppy nose with some sunflower seeds and light lemon zesty tones. Nice earthy flavor of blonde grains and earthy leafy grassy hops with a slight spice note. Earthy yeasty finish. Meh. Kinda forgettable.

Poured from a recent growler fill a hazy red gold with a bread and caramel odor. Flavorful, fronts like an IPA, but gets complex and finishes mellow and smoky. There is more going on with this beer than I can express, but it was enjoyable.
