glennmastrange (2803) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle. Very light aromas of caramel, hay, herbs and earth. Its color is a hazy tan/orange. The frothy head on this beer stood out in duration and its excellent lacing. Only moderately bitter, it also has a tart element and a nice dry finish. Body is medium light, oily and has a lively carbonation. Nothing real bold about this beer but its very drinkable.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - MAR 10, 2007
Poured an orange-amber hue with a thin white head which had great lacing. Aoma was a mix of pine notes and orange notes but the pine notes were more pronounced. Flavor was mildly malty with a yeast forground finishing with a mix of hops and citrus fruits Decent body with a clean finish.

Rballs01 (282) - Madison, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Heavy orange in color, poured in a pint. Nice hop aroma and major bitterness. Mouthfeel was like sucking on a balloon. Very well rounded finish and was definitely brutal for the better!

nearbeer (5227) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2009 Bottle in pint glass. Huge billowy cloud-like head on top of slightly cloudy, burnt-orange liquid; had to pour in three sessions to fit all in the glass. Great aroma of sweet citrus, honey and a hint of light evergreen. Initial taste is similar to aroma, but nicely balanced out by hop bitterness. Has the required bitter aftertaste for the English style, overall excellent beer, worth $9.50/six they charge here in TN. One of the best American bottled beers I have tasted, outside of home brew.

kreepindeth (404) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 7, 2007
Tastes similar to what the description is. English toffee/nutty maltiness with American hop-style citrusy bitter notes. Doesnt taste much like an ESB, but its a solid beer.

rm0312 (36) - Idaho, USA - MAR 6, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2007 From the bottle into my own Rogue pint glass - Loved the hoppiness of this beer as well as the bitter (but not too bitter) finish. Something of a citrus hint in there somewhere too. Great with steak or just about any hearty meal. One of my favorites...

Love the Rogues. I took my first sip waiting for the Brutality to start but it came only in a pleasant hoppiness. I dont think Id get this again because super hoppy beers are not my style, but anyone who likes IPAs will like this.
