What's a good way to track overtime in agile?

Often times in a sprint, we get tickets that are underestimated. In other words, the logged hours will exceed the original estimate. This is what is indicated as estimate accuracy in Agile's chart board.

The great thing is, during the sprint if we see the yellow line goes up we know that the estimate has been under. But the question is, how do you find where all that times has gone to? How do you get a list of tickets of where the extra time went into at the end of the spring for review purposes?

Use a Scripted Field from Jamie's Script Runner Plugin, and return the difference between time spent [using the function getTimeSpent()] and orginal estimate. Publish a filter using the Sprint version sorted by this new custom field in descending order. The top ones are the ones to be checked during your retrospective meetings to understand the quality of estimation.
