Bottle 52F English Pint. Nice hoppy aroma, great pine scents, good malty aromas, great bread yeast smells. Smells fantastic. Nice fairly clear light amber color with a splash of orange. Nice off white head that is both fluffy and decent lasting. Nice great hoppy flavor balanced perfecty against medium malts, very good taste I really like this one. A little bigger and hoppy than many popular ESB’s but this one is great. Lighter mouthfeel, lighter carbonation are slight drawbacks. Good beer a very nice ESB. A little less bitter on the hops and it would be a fantastic ESB. Very nicely done once again by Rogue, do they make a bad beer?

Poured from bottle to shaker glass. Hazy amber color with medium-lasting tan head. I would’ve sworn that I detected several types of hop aromas, but Rogue’s deScription told me differently. Nevertheless, the aroma was yummy and complex. In the flavor , I picked up a grapefruity hop flavor that was quite pronounced. To me this seemed almost IPA- like, but not as agressively bittered.

Bottle. Not that is a solid beer. I took a gulp of that and said to my wife without thinking, "I want to stick my face in this." In my opinion, its that good or maybe I was just really, really thirsty. Great looking murky, amber / copper color. Nice white head that stuck around. Great flavor with some citrus and maybe a touch of pine. Terrific hop flavor. Perfect feel in the mouth, beautiful body. Very solid - my full rec.

(on bottle)Disapointing and not brutal. Withheld in all aspects of the drinking faces and even gets irritating metalligc in the end. 94? tsk.

Hazy orange body, light lacing, moderate head. Aroma of piny hops; Initial flavor is citrus, nice rolling hop finish with lingering smooth sweet bitter; very palattable. Small amount of malts in-between bouts of hops.

An easy to drink bitter that I would recommend to someone who does not want to be overwhelmed by lesser bitters

Copper orange with a good head. Malty body with good hop blend. Little citrus...and good amount of bitter, but I don’t consider it brutally bitter. I’m a big IPA fan, so I liked the hoppy mixed with the big bitterness. Nice beer....

IrishBoy (4021) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Bottle Lemony hop aroma orange amber color with a medium white, heavy lacing head; Nice hoppy flavor with a little citrus, nice hop bitterness into the finish. Tastes much different and more hoppy than the Britsh ESB’s I’ve had!

Bomber bottle from Whole Foods. Good, very crisp, perhaps this Oregon hop is "bright" flavored. I like this, it is very smooth and drinkable. Not as rounded as a good double IPA, but good indeed.
