COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What did oSKAr the G’Rauch say to the face? Slap! Aromas of freshly-peeled orange and apricots with a touch of……..smoke? Juicy citrus and fruit flavors dominate but don’t overpower the slightly sweet malt structure. Finish is all citrus rind ping-ponging with some smoky phenols

Cask @ ACAT. Poured an unclear amber color. Nose was big fruity and citrus hops with just a hint of the smoked malts. Very nice. Taste is really unlike anything I have ever had. Big zesty citrus and tropical hops bite but with the tanginess of the smoke. Almost came off a bit rye like . Really really good and different. One of the highlights of the day for me for sure.

Bottled at Taylors & Jones with the Twist, Stockholm. Cloudy amber, small head. Weird combination of of smoke and citrusy hop up front. Turbs out lie cardboard. Mid sweet with full body and clean, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Light smoke, some old grapefruit peels. Quite bitter finish. Dull.

TizzleJizzle (530) - Garland, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2014
Poured a clear amber with a white top and lacing. Taste of grass, spruce, citrus, with slight smoke. Medium carbonation, medium body. Too hoppy for a smoked in my opinion.

Can. Clear copper small head. Some pineapple flavor. Nice sweet pineapple nose with light smoke. Smoke is more prominent in flavor. Candy like El dorado

Nose is pretty solid. Charcoal grilled pineapple slices and some sweet malts. Flavor is some sweet caramel malts and more sweet pineapple with intense smoke. Not bad. Strange.

Interesting mix of smoke and citrus flavors from the hops. Top it off with a great name and it's something I'd order again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz tallboy from the NC brewery purchased during RBWG bus tour and drank today, my bad didn’t realize it was an IPA till recently. Poured s nice looking chunky orange body with a frothy light beige head that leaves tons of lace on my RBWG tulip. Aroma bounces from citrus to smoke effortlessly, oranges to campfire to tangerine to grspefruit to smoked wood. Nice medium to fuller body with softer carbonation and a thicker dry mouthfeel with a lingering light smokiness. Flavor smoked wood, smoked citrus rinds, orange meat, yellow grapefruit, lemonade powder. Interesting but I sadly wonder what this would of been almost 6 weeks ago when I brought it home.

Can at Oskar Blues in Brevard. Interesting beer here. I kind of liked it. Fairly smokey with a light citrus and pine note. Pretty easy drinking if not super complex.

Ferris (2017) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2014
Can - Light citrus, orange and lemon. Clear gold with a big beige head. Grapefruit, orange and light smoke. I don’t understand this and find it a bit gimmicky.

Suttree (4903) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Can at the Brevard brewery for 2014 RBWG. This was an odd one. Smell was a bit smokey, with notes of firewood, bandaid, and then some typical IPA notes of pine and citrus. Flavor seemed a bit more IPA forward, with the smokiness in the background. Also, the medicinal, plastic notes that I got in the aroma were gone. Unique beer.
