I would infer that since Rogue is in the name that the ORE signifies Oregon, not oregano, Iron ore, or Oreo cookie :shock:

Indeed. It's a pale ale from Oregon.

Weekend Update:
Lake Louie Mosquito Beach - bottle. the new CA Steam beer from LL is right in my wheelhouse and has earned a spot next to Potosi's Pilsener and Dave's BrewFarm as summer standards.

New Glarus Moon Man - bottle. I had a couple on Sunday after yardwork and with dinner.

New Belgium Lips of Faith Le Fleur Misseur - bomber. This confirmed my dislike of Brettanomyces wild yeast. I finished the bomber but the brett taste was too much to make it enjoyable. My sister called it the worst thing ever.

South Shore Pale Ale - bomber. I've always liked the Nut Brown and Honey Pils they do, so I jumped at the chance to try this. I liked this a lot. It's not so pale, with a good malt body and reminds me of a maltier Hoppalicious.

Furthermore Oscura - bottle. I normally do coffee beers in the stout format during winter months but this one is much lighter and very enjoyable during the rest of the year, though one is usually enough for me. It went very well with the morels I had for dinner Thursday night.

I hate straying from my favorites while at home but I always look for the local brew when on the road.

Modelo Negro is usually always in the fridge.

Abita Amber is very good and I had Abita Red Ale while in New Orleans last year. Loved the Red Ale. I was able to get the Amber at Woodmans and don't know if they ever had the Red Ale (seasonal).

I had Red Oak Amber Lager while in N.C. last year and it was also very good. I can't find it anywhere around here.

When out and about locally (which is rare) I usually get Spotted Cow, Grays Honey or Leinie's Honey.

Gumballhead at The Harmony. Charley mocks me for drinking it - but then again, Charley can kiss my ass.

Boont Amber (Anderson Valley) at The Glass Nickel. Hope to make stop at their brew pub in August.

Mosquito Beach (Lake Louie) - purchased at Star Liquor for a backyard barbeque with my old roommate and his wife. Through sheer coincidence I purchased the first six pack that Star sold. Me likey.

Potosi's Double IPA at The Glass Nickel. Good stuff, but don't attempt any advanced judo moves after you've quaffed a couple.

and (not really beer):

Strongbow Cider at The Glass Nickel. Its 4.5% abv is perfect to keep you drinkin' long past your optimal bed time.

Avowed hop-head here.

Ale Asylum Ballistic – bottle at home.

Ale Asylum Ballistic – pint at the tasting room.

Central Waters Illumination – bottle at home.

New Glarus IIPA – bottle at home.

Ale Asylum Ballistic – bottle at home.

The last three were a side-by-side taste comparison. I really liked all three. The Ballistic (an IPA) compared very favorably with the other two (both double IPAs). None can match the anticipated return of Satisfaction Jacksin.

It is a little known fact that they have vows for that. Very informal, of necessity.

Tyranena's "Scurvy" - oof.

I like hops. I'm not afraid of IBUs. I love supporting local breweries. An IPA with orange peel sounded intriguing, so I picked up a sixer.

The flavor is almost reminiscent of crushed aspirin.

Hey, how do you know what crushed aspirin tastes like?

Is it the children's orange-flavored stuff or the regular adult stuff?

It's like the kind that tastes bad.

No idea why I'm familiar with the taste of crushed aspirin. I can't precisely recall ever chewing aspirin, but it was the first thing to come to mind when I took my first swig.

Taste memory is powerful juju, much like smell memory. I'm very fortunate to have had a grandma with a kitchen that perpetually smelled of delicious baked goods. It must be terrible to be the grandchild of a hoarder - you walk past a landfill and think "It reminds me of grandma's house!"

Holy crap, I just threadjacked myself. I should maybe look into ADD meds.

After drinking several sixers already this spring...I can attest my taste buds must be vastly different than yours. Scurvy is good stuff...as a beer I mean.

current last 5 beers
Scurvy
Pabst
Pangaea Hop Monster - @ old fashioned. Rebranded Lilja's..not hoppy, and surely no monster
Some sort of IPA from Bull Falls brewery - not very memorable either, but better than the Hop Monster
Hopalicious - celebrating the rapture
