Sampled from a 7oz shorty bottle into a nonic pint glass, thanks gregwilsonstl. It poured a mostly clear amber color with weak beige head, no lace. Very hoppy aroma: grapefruit and other citrus rind, flowery, earthy, and malty underneath. High-gravity but neutral fermentation, lacking any fruity ale complexity, typical of Rogue. Tasted of strong caramel malt backbone with equally strong bittering and flavor hops, not much else. Not sure what they were going for here, but they cranked it to 11 as usual. Just kinda boring this time.

Dark brown. Nice head. Quite bitter, but not overwhelming. Very rich. There is nothing to this except for bitterness.

Bottle 7 oz, Total Wine & More. Pours murky amber with a small bubbly tanned head leaving some lacing. Aroma is fruity malty a bit sweet bready citric. Flavor is malty sweet toasted in front, more bitter bready fruity from middle to end finishing with a dryish malty and fruity aftertaste.

ACHops (977) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2012
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours cloudy amber with thin lingering head. Aroma is thin, faint hop notes. Taste is sweet caramel malt with rich smooth body. A hint of hops on the finish. Pretty good for the style, but lacking in hops for my taste.

750ml ceramic swingtop bottle pours a hazy golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles to reveal some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some citrus and earthy notes. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a generous citrus and earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation leaving a pleasant feeling on the palate. A very robust ESB that is very tasty and highly recommended.

7oz bottle pours perfectly into a stupid little hotel glass. Hazy to the point of murky. Aroma of butterscotch. Taste is bittersweet toffee. Quite creamy.

XS Bottle. Pours hazy copper with an off-white film on top. The aroma is fairly caramel malt forward with a little bit of a booziness. Taste is on the sweet side with a lot of that caramel taste and a little alcohol warmth on the finish. There is also some bitterness on the finish. This is pretty good.
