UPDATED: OCT 5, 2009 Can. Pours a true amber with a slightly greenish, off-white head. Aromas of citrusy hops but there is a slight note of old broccoli too. Rich malts and white bread are balanced by caramel and huge hops. Love it! (Despite the broccoli.)

Can. Pours a coppery color with a decent sized tan colored head. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, caramel. Flavor is grapefruit, hint of pineapple, caramel, pine. Palate is medium bodied, medium carbonation, finished bitter. This is one of the best exaples of the style. Terrific session beer!

Cloudy gold pour. Very floral, small amount of citrus nose. Tastes similarly. Some nice maltiness, pine. Medium bodied, a little stickiness. Good clean finish. One of the best pales I’ve had in quite a while, not that I drink them all that often.

Took this beer in cans to the beach aat isle of Palms, SC.
What a great balanced IPA. Nice Hops and a good amount of malt. Finishes clean. OK on the beach but a little too much beer for an all day event.

12 oz. can poured into shaker- poured transparent when held to light, medium carbonation, very thin white head that laced some. Aroma of floral, hops, and earth. HIts the mouth with a low-medium body, malt is very nice, hops are very nice, notes of pine and sweetness on the backend, finish has some acidity- which is very nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fire-amber with a decent-sized, long-lasting white head. Nose is strong, sweet, and a little clean, with standards like caramel and grapefruit, but also with an earthy, "field"-like scent. Flavor has some great balance with citrus, caramel, bread, and a slight hint of pine/flowers. Somewhat bitter and full bodied, this is definitely a winner.

Better then almost any bottled pale ale by far. I was turned on too this after the ten fitty and falling in love with old chub. They d not make a bad beer and this is one of my top pale ales ever.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an orange color with a thick off-white head. A notch of lacing after each sip. Aroma is somewhat subtle but nice with grapefruit and piney hops mixed with some maltiness. Grapefruit hoppy flavor, some lemon, sticky pine with caramel malts. Real nice thick malty base for a Pale Ale and it’s not lacking in the hop department either. This could be considered an IPA. Hmmm... I’m really starting to dig these Oskar Blues canned beers.

best damn beer in a can--well, it can be heavy if you want to quench without the fill, but the quality is superb... very aromatic and flavorful in hops; perfume, pine, citrus, and bitter ends without the bitter face.

12oz Can: Copper w/ a small biege head. Very nice aroma of sweet malts & piney hops. Flavor starts w/ sweet malts then a bitter citrus hop hit. Finishes bitter. Some crazy lacing left on the glass too...
