Bottle. Pours a hazy and murky orange-copper, almost like a harvest moon, with a small fizzy white head that becomes a patchy rocky film shortly. Fragrant floral fruit and citrus hop combined aroma with a lightly roasted caramel sweet malt (cookie) background. Flavor is heavily bitter and sour citrus rind hop with a light acidity and caramel malt body. Medium bodied and fizzy palate, goes a tad dry but very drinkable and refreshing. Lives up to its name in a pleasant and inviting way.

One of the best beers I’ve had in a while. It lives up to half of its name: it’s bitter, but not brutally so.

How to judge this beer. First off it tastes great. But then is it a bitter? Yes, it is bitter, but that gets overshadowed by the hop flavor and aroma. Okay so who cares about style, it’s delicious if you like IPA’s, which I do. Anyway, hops and more hops with a little carmel sweetness. Yum.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Slightly hazy medium-golden pour with a tall, rocky off-white head. Quite a lot of sediment, as well as some very persistent lacing. Aroma was strong with citrus and grassy hoppiness... and some underlying caramel malty sweetness (really what I’d hope for in a good ESB). The first things to hit the tastebuds were the Cascade hops... with their wonderful grapefruity goodness. Very good balance between the high-alpha and bittering hops, as well as the medium caramel backbone. Very pleasant grassy/piney bitter finish. Definitely enjoyed this one!

Tap @ Summits. Orangey-copper color with a thin white head. Light citrusy hop aroma caramel malt underneath. Flavor is light on the malt with a fair amount of tangy hop acidity and a modertely bitter finish that is long and dry.

Bottle - nice big grassy, spicy hop nose. Deep golden color with a white, white head. Very spicy flavor! Sweetening as it warms. Aroma becomes quite malty. Slightly fizzy. This is a nice beer!

Ah yes. A very nice malty version of a bitter. The hops are present and the aroma from them is very agreeable--some herbalness, pine, and very fresh smelling, but there;s also some mellow fruitiness and dough in here. Pours cloudy amber with a nice big head. Full but not heavy mouthfeel. It’s hard to find a decent bitter. I may pick some of this up again to see if it qualifies for repeat buying status.

This is just a tasty beer. I have had 22 oz bottles and on tap. I have to admit on tap is awesome. The appearance, aroma and flavor blend together wonderfully. Start a Revolution!
