4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful amber pour with vivacious lasting tight foamy white head. Aroma is citrus, sharp but welcome resin, and grassy hop notes. This brew has its bases covered with respect to hop facets, and balances it expertly with the slightest biscuity caramel. Flavor is incredibly balanced- starts out with powerful caramel and molasses with a hint of honey. Near the end the ho bite comes though with full force. Grassy, lemony, and powerful though quite manageable. Palate is velvety and rich. Best APA Iíve had to date.

Straight from the can. Great session. 24 or 30 pk would be great. Great balance of citrusy hops and caramel malt. Slighty more hoppy. Very good.

This beer is great, very hoppy, not too much on the malty side, but I thought this would qualify as an IPA, tastes like one in my book. Wonderful hop presence and profile, crisp, easy to drink. A very solid beer.

Quality everytime. Very evergreen smell. The hops are incredibly present in the taste as well, but there are more malts than in the smell. This is a great beer for anytime. And when youíre done...if you feel so inclined, you can smash this beerís container on your forehead without fear of getting glass jammed into your skull.

Another good beer in a can from Oskar Blues. Pours a copper color with a nice sweet hop nose of citrus and pine. Flavors follow, with stong citrus hops and a little vanilla. Good IPA.

Can... Poured orange with a white head, beautiful lacing. Earthy aroma containing hops and rich Malts. Full, smoothly carbonated palate. Floral hop flavors with earthy vegetable notes and malt grains for a nice balance. Finished with hops and grains.

canned, pours a thick light amber with no head at all, aroma of light malt with more hop presence then anticipated, flavor same as aroma, sweet malt up front, heavy on palate, with residual hop bitters, I would imagine that this would be good on a hot summerís day strait from the can.
