3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2007 On tap at OB...this is much better on tap than out of the can. The can has a heavier taste and does not seem as aromatic. Of course the freshness you get when you go straight to the source is unbeatable ( I recommend that you all go for Tuesdays open Bluegrass pick night) so disregard that comment. Good beer. I wish they made more Gordon so I could fill up my growler.

straight from the can, so appearance rating is N/A...
aroma is mostly pine hops with some grapefruit and make in the background. taste is mostly bitterness from some grapefruit rind and a little but earthy hops. really good beer.

A very good apa. Not much in the way of aromas. crystal clear yellow hue. Spicy hop flavor. Clean refreshing finish.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer pours a saddle leather amber with a thick white head that is mostly lasting with nice lacing. The nose is a bouquet of floral hops. The taste is IPA all the way. The front is a clean maltyness that is followed with a sharp bitterness that hits you in the back and sides of the mouth. The mouth feel is smooth and watery. The after taste is spicy hops.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2012 I didnít like this at all the first time I had it, but mistakenly got it again in a custom six, gave it another shot, and enjoyed it! Itís a strong, soapy IPA; donít let it sit in your mouth, gulp that mother fast!

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2007 I had this straight from the can. Smells really hoppy at first, but the malts really come through in the flavor... very unique and well balanced. Fantastic.

Can: I've had probably 75 of these over the years and enjoyed a visit to the brewery in Lyons Colorado a few years back. One if not the first to do canned micros. Great beers too. This flagship looks the part out of the can. Strong bronze with hoppy nose. Delish combo of hops and malt delivering a sweet and bitter product. Since it is not considered an IPA, this is probably my favorite pale ale.
