I saw this dude, he was wearing a leather jacket, and at the same time he was eating a hamburger and drinking a glass of milk. I said to him "Dude, youíre a cow. The metamorphosis is complete. Donít fall asleep or Iíll tip you over."

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a slightly hazy copper color with a thin white head.
S: There are some slightly fruity and floral hop aromas to this beer. But there is much more caramel and a slight sugary note to this beer.
T: This beer appears to have some oxidation going on because thereís a definite cardboard flavor happening here. Despite that, there are still some mild citrus flavors with a decent bitterness on the finish.
M: The carbonation is on the light end of medium to go along with the medium body.
D: Even if I throw out all the amazing west coast IPAs we have and look at this on its own, itís still not that great of a beer. The flavors that make an IPA what it is are seriously lacking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber via trade thanks to stephens101 on BA. My first full Oklahoma beer, although Iíve had a couple ounces of Marshall McNellieís. Pours cloudy amber with a one-finger white head. Great retention - head never totally fades. Aroma is caramel malt, spices, and really muted citrusy hops. Flavor is pretty light on the hops. Caramel malt and spices with a little bit of soapiness. What hops there are are mainly citrusy and earthy. Someone else mentioned orange marmalade, and that flavor really is in there. There is hop bitterness for sure, but not much hop aroma/flavor. Medium body with average carbonation and some hop oils. Overall, not too impressive. A little odd for an American IPA.

Waxed bomber courtesy of ericandersnavy. He just gave me this, thanks man! It pours deep copper with fluffy tan head. The aroma is full with spiciness, a touch of tartness, sharp grapefruit and some sweet malts in the background. The taste is pretty robust with sharp spiciness creating a modest tingling sensation as the carbonation bubbles up. That notes slowly gives way to citrus grapefruit hops. It seems like the yeast has thinned it out some midway and that sensation takes over the experience with bubbly effervescence.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer pours cloudy golden orange with a white head. The aroma is very floral, almost perfume-like. You also get some hops and a slight soapiness. The soapiness is also there in the flavor, as well as strong piney hops and some malt. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. The beer wasnít bad at first, but the soap-like flavor kept building and it was hard to finish by the end of the glass.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Texasbeerguy, aka ericandersnavy. Pours rather dark copper with a foamy, three-finger, off-white head. Hard to get aroma through the foam, but seems citrus/floral. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is rather darkish roast caramel, with a lot of freshish hop. Still going citrus on this. There is a lot of flavor. Finishes a bit malty, more like an ESB with extra hop. Great tasting ale.
