Pours a really hazy honey color with a thin off-white head. Huge grapefruit nose with some honey and a little bit of floral in there as well. Flavor is a really nice earthy hop. A little bit of citrus and floral round it out. A light body without much carbonation, but has an excellent body and mouthfeel. One of the best American Pale Ales that I’ve had.

Another awesome beer from the Oskar Blues can. Do they make any bad beers? This is the third beer I’ve tried from them and their all good. Pours a smooth cooper color with a slight head, with minimal lacing that hangs on the sides of the glass. Very smooth and sweet flavor with just the right amount of bitterness. Very drinkable APA.

Canned! Golden-amber colour with a white film on top. Pleasant aroma of cotton candy, sweet hops and a hint of raspberries? Great hop flavour but definitely not overpowering or grossly bitter. Very pleasant.

Very tasty brew! This stuff is very surprising coming from a canned beer. Aroma is very sweet and pours a hazy orange color with a crisp white head. taste is a hoppy sweet flavor. finishies very smooth. Would drink again.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2008 pours thick amber, fluffy tan head. subtle aroma, probably too subtle, with only a hoppy hint. the flavor is not complex enough, and is slightly bitter. a watery mouth feel. weakly disappointing. but cornfield, rayboy01, jackson220, elgaucho, frankenkitty, brideoffrankenkitty and a couple others know why i think the name is just plain cool.

can from 7th street spirits. this was my second installment from oskar blues and I must say I am really digging their style. At first taste the hops attack the tastebuds creating a burnt bitter flavor but as the palate adjusts and the beer warms the beer is really enjoyed. This is one that you have to be patient with - donit write it off too early. Pours golden slightly darker than the standard APA. Smell is rich and very full - sweet and citrusy. tastes is very much like the smell. well done.

Shaker glass. Pours gold with a one finger head. Aroma a nice milx of caramel/toffee malts and floral hops. This is a well balanced beer with sweet malts and a nice bitter finish. Extremely drinkable. Another fine addition to a mind-blowing beer week!
