Pours a pleasant copper-amber color. Nice head, small bubbles, long lasting, leaves a nice lace around the glass as it slides down. Outstanding aroma of fresh hops, the label description makes it sound like this beer is being constantly circulated around fresh whole leaf hops as it's brewed. Very malty flavor given the heavy hop aroma with just the right amount of hop bitterness, a very nice blend. Nice bitter aftertaste and smooth mouthfeel. A very drinkable session beer. This beer seemed very Rogue-like, just not quite as hoppy. I was at the Great American Beer Festival in the Pocono's in November 02 and was very dissappointed to hear that Troeg's was discontinuing their ESB, which I thought was a great American micro version of the English classic. They told me that this was to be the replacement and this is my first tasting. Not as good as the ESB in my opinion, but an excellent beer none the less. I will definitely buy this again.
