Not a horrible beer, but nothing amazing either. When I heard "Brutal Bitter," I was anticipating something that was actually brutally bitter. Instead I got a beer that really didn’t hold my attention. I finished it, but I didn’t buy another.

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Dark amber color with one of the flullyest and firmest heads around, lasts and lasts. Nice controlled carbobation, feels like a beer, not a soda. Aroma, recalls fresh rain on a new cut lawn. Green apples and grapes, pine too. and of course--loads of lovely hops. Could be habit forming

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2006 This has a bit more than the dry citrus and hop flavor I love. Lemon more than grapefruit. The subtle counterbalancing sweetness is not sugary. Big thumbs up

Lots of grape and pine aroma. Slightly hazy orange colour. Huge creamy head that last a long time and leaves nice lacings. Medium carbonation. Very bitter taste (but in a nice way), and somehow reminds me of Fishermans Friends. Light body but full flavoured. A very impressive beer.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 5, 2006
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.

Lemon cookie aroma
Flavor is grapefruit with some pine and a touch of sweetness.
Tingly bitter finish.
