TASTING NOTES: A non-traditional India Pale Ale with big citrusy, hop flavor and intense hop aroma. Medium-bodied with a vibrant lingering hop-bitterness that is anything but brutal. Enjoy!

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2005
Pours a hazy dark orange with a small amount of foamy white head. Aroma is very hoppy, piney, and citrusy and extremely potent. Flavor is bittersweet, citrusy, and very hopy. Definitely seemed like an IPA and not an ESB. Overall, pretty good.

Cask @ GBBF Cloudy amber colour, sweetish fruit nose some citrus fruit, strong citric hop finish, excellent beer to start the 2005 beer festival on.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Medium orange color with a medium head. Big aroma of citrusy hops, almost like an IPA. Flavor is malty with crunchy hops througout. Finish is clean and dry. Like an Enlgish ESB with the hops cranked up. Well balanced and clean.

bottle. hazy orange-copper body with a fluffy white head. floral resiny hop aroma - citrus orange and grapefruit, along with some yeast. full body. sweet start and almost overwhelmingly hoppy. there is some effort to balance this beast but it falls a bit short. Sharp pine bitterness in the long, lingering finish. This is certainly an American rendition of the style.

This makes for a great session beer. A little bolder than most ESBís Iíve had with a nice hop flavor. To me it almost tastes like a cross between an IPA and an ESB. Iíll definitely be picking this up again.

piscator34 (2298) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 29, 2005
Slightly cloudy and orange in colour, with familiar Rogue Ales aromas of bready malts and a touch of floral hops. Fairly malty flavors are balanced nicely by some great "green" hop flavors and bitterness. It doesnít really taste like many ESBís that Iíve had, but itís enjoyable nonetheless.

Bottle. This was nice,. More like a very well done pale, the bitter is not as the name says, not brutal or over the top. Well balanced and enjoyable.

Beaver (1620) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2005
12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a smallish fluffy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is spicy floral hops, a little melon, and some almost malt liquorish malt that was off-putting (but it did dissipate as I drank).

The flavor is bitter grassy and slightly fruity hops with a nice initial malt backbone. It has a long bitter finish. Itís medium bodied and smooth.

Overall, a very hoppy ESB. It matches up well with IPAs, but it is a little pricey ($10.50 per 6 pack). I was expecting more fruitiness in the aroma and flavor.

This is one of my all time favorite beers. Nice malt with a great hop finish. Has a head that just want quit. Only draw back is I have to drive 1 1/2 hour to get one. Its called an ESB, but it borders an American Pale Ale. If you havenít had one, FIND ONE!

Aroma of hops - grapefruit, hint of lemon. Scratchy on the palate, with a pleasant bitter coating leftover. Medium body. The taste follows the aroma - hops. Poured cloudy amber with nice foam head.
