Mostly lasting white sheet lasts over the hazy straight honey hue. Soft and spicy aroma attack comes with a leafy touch that feels almost noble. Besides that, the nose is kept rather simplistic comprising mostly soft biscuity malts. On the palate, its small-bubbled very active carbonation is engaging and contrasts with the overall creaminess despite the beer being globally dry. Minimal citrus shows up in the finish that evolves toward a crisp, cleansing bitterness. A rather straightforward offering that feels lighter than it is, but is nonetheless a versatile, drinkable ale, just perhaps not a recipe that calls for a special release.

Cool GYO concept, but this can be a little stark and harsh. Malts are toasty and nutty, with a burnt-toffee flavor. Hops are very grassy and bitter. Finish and aftertaste is kind of rough, with elements of bread crust and a lingering, plant-stem-like bitterness. Bit of orange-peel-like bitterness, too. Overall, not bad, but not really my thing, either.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Bottle (rating 100 for this beer it looks like) Pours with a very murky orange body and a large tan-yellow head. Aroma of orange, tangerine, marmalade, jasmine tea, caramel, vanilla, flowers and hibiscus. Flavor is bitter with out much hop flavor behind it. Some caramel, spice (hibiscus) and tea. Lively bubbles. Pretty boring, definitely not "OREgasmic"!

650 ml bottle from the Beerhive shared with Mikey. Pours a cloudy copper with a large white head. The aroma is citrus and earthy hops. A bitter very hoppy flavor; some citrus, caramel, earthy. Very nice.

robiannelli (591) - West Deptford, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2010
Bomber poured orange copper with a nice tan head. Aroma was mild mostly flural with some malt. Taste is excellent notes of spicey hop and well balanced hints of fruit in the background. Full body and an extremely good feel and bitter finish.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Cheap-ass bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Pleasant surprise here, an intensely gleaming orange pour, moderate head, and a ripe yeast aroma with lots of bready malts. The mild spice notes in the nose come through as you sip the beer a bit, giving the thing a nice sharp hop profile in what is overall a well balanced beer. I’d been overlooking these Chatoe beers but I’m starting to come around to them, at least at $3 a pop.

Bomber from Sam’s for only $2.99. Pours hazy dark amber -- almost red in some lights, closer to dark orange in others -- with a piddling beige head. Nose is malty and hoppy, reminding me more of a British pale ale than an American one, though maltier and hoppier... maybe a British IPA. There is a fruitiness beyond simple citrus... perhaps clementine notes? Taste shows subtle floral hints as well as honey. Palate is sort of overcarbonated and just weird... actually gets in the way of my enjoyment quite a bit. Slightly boozy, too. Almost a really good beer... but... wait... so I just rated this after pouring the first half of the beer and corking the second half. After pouring the rest into a glass, it pours much hazier and darker, and with a more aggressive pour on my part, this has created a more substantial head, nice lacing, and a settled carbonation. So my advice is to gentle tilt this bottle upside-down before pouring, and pour for a big head... makes it much better.

hopscotch (9214) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2010
Bottle… Clear, brilliant orange ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Decent retention. Biscuity, toasty, lightly fruity nose – hints of toffee and apricot. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The flavor tilts way bitter. Nice biscuit and toffee malts take a backseat to heavy hop bitterness that carries right on through to the finish. The bitter lupulin sticks like glue to the sides of my tongue and the roof of my mouth and hangs around a good while.

Tmoney99 (10800) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured dark copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable brew that met my expectations.

WVHouseofBeer (831) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Pours an unusually dark amber color (almost brown) with a medium-sized off-white head. Nice floral aroma. Slightly bitter citrus flavor balanced with malty toffee/caramel. Dry finish with a sticky mouthfeel. An excellent APA; another success from Rogue.
