UPDATED: AUG 21, 2008 Maybe I missed something with this beer, but I didnt think as highly of it as most people. Pours a hazy orange with a decent head. Citrusy hop aroma, almost a bit acidic. The flavor is mainly bitter, resiny and very piny. Gritty grapefruit suggestions with a long bitter finish. Seemed boring at the time. I have to re-visit this one.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2007 Deep amber color with light head. Strong hoppy aroma. Flavor has a nice, smooth bitterness that would make most IPAs blush. Very complex and enjoyable. As good as any ESB Ive ever tried.

Drank with Stegosaurus and Beereded_one at Newton brew fest. Poured a hazy amber with a medium head. Aroma of big time hops. Almost IPA ish. They seemed to balance all the hops well in this one with good flavor not overly bitter. Decent brew.

sampled at columbus alefest. rich copper color, nice floral aroma with a not so hoppy taste, smooth maltiness with a crisp floral hop background and aftertaste. good bitter, i expected a little more from the over-the-top boys at rogue.

[Bottle from Vinens Verden, shared with Alexander]. ESB is one of my favorite beers, so this was a wishlist beer. Dark, "roguetaste", of course bitter, soft, sourfruity and with a long nice bitter finish.

Near clear orange fluid cradles a billowing cauliflower cap. Paperwhite lace slumps to form melting hieroglyphs. Aroma is a fruity, juicy, sappy celebration of the hop: orange, nectarine, grapefruit, pine, Hawiian Punch. Supplementary scents suggest flint, seawater, hard pretzels. Flashbulb of hop flavor leads to lime leaf, slate, juniper berries, melba toast. Quite light and creamy palate, electric with smoothly buzzing bubbles and stinging lupulin. Anticipated dry-as-dust finish never develops, veering instead to an off-dry sweet/tart tang that resolves into a superb quinine bitterness. Spectacular! But ESB? Clearly superior to many IPAs and shames most sugarcoated DIPAs.

UPDATED: DEC 6, 2006 One of the only rogue beers I have liked. Poured a reddish brown color with a off white head. Very hoppy aroma. Has a spicy taste with a bitter finish.

jzzbassman (1587) - Arlington, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Bottle: Poured a rust color with a minimal cream head and good lacing. Very piney aroma, with a bit of a medicinal whang. Flavor os hoppy up front, with a dry bitter finish. Excellent with the ribs I had.
