sandberglar (148) - Scottsdale, USA - DEC 13, 2010
Cloudy orangish bronze color with a beige head that leaves good lacing. Piny hop aroma with some bread notes as well. Initially bitter, but followed up with an overwhelming maltiness and has an interestingly sticky resinous finish. Like others have mentioned, it doesn’t really taste like an ESB, more like an IPA. Either way, judging as an ESB, or IPA, it’s a decent beer.

jmm635 (824) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2010
Deep golden color with a nice lacing head. Piney, citrus hops on the nose with a matching bitter flavor. Hefty bitterness on the back of the tongue and it lingers. More like an IPA than an ESB in my opinion, but still pretty tasty.

cpetrone84 (1202) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2010
Had on tap at McGrath’s in Harrisburg A-pours a deep golden amber color that is pretty much opaque from the haze. Head is pure white and bubbly. S-the nose has a fair bit of wheaty malt, notes of orange juice with pulp, hints of caramel and grain with a floral hop backbone. T-toasted grains and caramel malt up front, pine and citric hops more towards the back. a fair bit of brown sugar and caramel roll in. a fair bit of citric hops in the back and a dank herbal presence. an assertive bitterness that lingers for a moment to finish this off. M-medium body and syrupy with a grainy tough texture. strong carbonation and a slightly messy carbonation in the finish. D-interesting beer, seems quite big almost american barley wine style. very balanced and interesting, huge flavors and hides the alcohol quite well. tasty treat.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Bottle pours hazy orange amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel/toffee, apple, grapefruit, and a good dose of earthy/citrusy hops. Flavor shows the same. Overall body is moderate to full, sticky, sweet, and finishes with a moderate to heavy bitterness. Pretty good stuff.

malrubius (1578) - Willowick, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2010
22 ounce bottle from Whole Foods in Portland, ME. Copper/amber with great lasting head and lace. Piney then citrus then caramel aroma Touch of caramel toffee medium fruity sweetness with bitter very dry resiny finish. Complex, assertive, strong, well-hidden alcohol. Way above expectations. This is a damn good beer.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUL 26, 2010
(22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers) Pours hazy lightly reddish amber with two fingers of lightly yellowish off-white head. Rich aroma of caramel, rock-candy, pine and citrus. Mouthfeel smooth and lightly syrupy/sticky, a touch of fizziness. Tastes of caramel and rock candy overlain by pine and citrus. Medium bitter. Hint of chocolate as it warms.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2010

BREWMUSKCLES (2154) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2010
a full brew for those who love beer! heavy farm fresh and caramel malt profile with a matched (though slightly less so) hop profile that includes citrus, flower and pepper in combination. not sweet it is highly flavorful and like i said over the top especially for the style. bit of funky broomstraw in the out matched flavors... this is a satisfier.
