12 oz bottle - Poured cloudy amber with a short white head. Aroma of grapefruit and some grass and some spice. Flavor is mostly hops.. a little grain. On the palate this is medium bodied crisp and clean and finishes with a bitter almost sour aftertaste. This was a good ESB.

Draft - Amber colored with a great lasting head. This was very crisp with a nice hop bite at the end. Not usually a fan of this style, but this was great.

Nice rich honey color with little head. If your an IPA fan. go buy this beer. Itís like a hops smoothie. Texture of apple cider, hints of citrus, bitter in the best sort of way. Best $12 six-pack Iíve ever bought. I just ran to toss another in freezer to get it cold

appears hazy amber, with a nice head, smells great very spicey, the taste almost like lemon iced tea, good hops, somewhat bitter, very drinkable, and truely brutal.

I liked it, but it was a little spicy for my taste. A bit too many hops in this one.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2005 Wow, this is a really interesting brew. The first bitter Iíve ever had that actually dries your tongue out, but without leaving an aftertaste, very good.

Big Bottle. Golden Amber with a quickly dissapating head. Strong piney aromas along with a fruity/estery yeast aroma in the second glass (sediment rich). Great hoppy bite, with sour / coppery finish.

Iíve never been a fan or just never understood what a bitter is. However, this is one is pretty good. Full hops in effect and a subtle malt body. Thereís that lingering bitter bite in the aftertaste which i guess makes it a bitter. other than that it tastes like an average pale ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber colored with a lively head. Aroma is heavy in earthy hops. Flavor doesnít have much malt presence but a stale/earthy hop flavor. Very lively on the tongue. Not a big fan.

Pretty good stuff. Hops are present with some brown ale textures. Overall, a decent brew, another fine brew from Rogue.
