Sampled at The Newtown Brewfest with Stegosaurus and The mad Indian. Pours hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of spices and hops. The flavor is sweet upfront and finishes brutally bitter.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 Maybe I missed something with this beer, but I didn’t think as highly of it as most people. Pours a hazy orange with a decent head. Citrusy hop aroma, almost a bit acidic. The flavor is mainly bitter, resiny and very piny. Gritty grapefruit suggestions with a long bitter finish. Seemed boring at the time. I have to re-visit this one.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 Deep amber color with light head. Strong hoppy aroma. Flavor has a nice, smooth bitterness that would make most IPAs blush. Very complex and enjoyable. As good as any ESB I’ve ever tried.

MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2006
Drank with Stegosaurus and Beereded_one at Newton brew fest. Poured a hazy amber with a medium head. Aroma of big time hops. Almost IPA ish. They seemed to balance all the hops well in this one with good flavor not overly bitter. Decent brew.

Cliff (355) - The Land of Milk and Honey, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2006
sampled at columbus alefest. rich copper color, nice floral aroma with a not so hoppy taste, smooth maltiness with a crisp floral hop background and aftertaste. good bitter, i expected a little more from the over-the-top boys at rogue.

BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2006
[Bottle from Vinens Verden, shared with Alexander]. ESB is one of my favorite beers, so this was a wishlist beer. Dark, "roguetaste", of course bitter, soft, sourfruity and with a long nice bitter finish.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Near clear orange fluid cradles a billowing cauliflower cap. Paperwhite lace slumps to form melting hieroglyphs. Aroma is a fruity, juicy, sappy celebration of the hop: orange, nectarine, grapefruit, pine, Hawiian Punch. Supplementary scents suggest flint, seawater, hard pretzels. Flashbulb of hop flavor leads to lime leaf, slate, juniper berries, melba toast. Quite light and creamy palate, electric with smoothly buzzing bubbles and stinging lupulin. Anticipated dry-as-dust finish never develops, veering instead to an off-dry sweet/tart tang that resolves into a superb quinine bitterness. Spectacular! But ESB? Clearly superior to many IPAs and shames most sugarcoated DIPAs.

loved this beer, Rogue is a fav, lotsa nice hops on the nose, bitter flavour, wasn’t really an esb to me but damn not going to argue.
