Can. Pours clear amber with a half inch head. Great c hop aroma with malt notes too. Malty taste with some raisin notes, plenty of citrus taste, and a bitter boozy kick in the finish. Full sticky body. Delicious.

Drank out of the can. Pretty impressive IPA. Really great piney hop flavor. Prefer to drink it a little warm. Really intensifies the hop flavor.

Sacrifices subtlety for strength. Straight up hops and alcohol. Has a decent flavor and goes down fairly easy.

Deep amber color with a thick white head. Citrus on the nose. Piney with caramel malt flavor. Flavor lingers for a while. Leaves mouth sticky and with a slight alcohol burn. Tasty.

Red with a hint of orange in the glass with good carbonation. Smells a bit like warm grass. Taste is very hoppy (plenty of pine) but instead of citrus overtones thereís more of a tropical note to it. Malt flavor is quite obvious too, contributing a slightly caramel feel. A solid choice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A crystal clear amber body initially sports a dash of tiny active bubbles racing towards a 2" soft white, smooth-frothy head leaving dense layers of intricate to solid lace all around
Mango and papaya lined in citrus and savory accents with herbal overtones in the dank to minty range on a silky smooth, somewhat sticky medium body, no mistaking that mouth feel, definitely an Oskar, aroma and flavor components echo through a lasting and full flavored, yet mellow residual

This is a very very good beer, just crossing the threshold of being an IPA. Has an aroma of tropical fruit, possibly papaya and peach (if I remember correctly how papaya smells). Havenít seen this in a glass because Iíve only drunk it from a can, but I canít imagine the color being offensive. The taste is an appealing blend of tropical fruits, peach, papaya , watermelon, and faint strawberries. Not really piney or resiny in any way, but itís herby quality is quite strong, and thereís a hint of pepper in it. Itís a bit sweet for an IPA but it is balanced so nicely and is so complementary to the hops that itís hard to complain. The bitterness is almost a little weak but the overall flavor of the hops blends so well with the fruity maltiness, in a very unique fashion, that it tastes one of a kind. Iím glad this IPA isnít too thick or it wouldnít leave room for more in your stomach, and Iím pleased with the mild, non-intrusive amount of carbonation that is imparted. Overall, a distinctly fruity, delicious blend. I enjoy an IPA that stands out by deviating from a typical bready malt and steering into a herbacious, fruity, or resiny realm, and this one succeeds. Crazy drinkable, and just great.

Can. Clear amber with a thick off white head. Aroma is caramel malt and tropical fruit. Taste follows suit and adds some floral hoppy bitterness and a citrusy finish. Thick sticky mouthfeel and moderate alcohol burn. Solid.
