Can’t belive it’s taken me so long to track down this beer. Great stuff though. Citrus peel and pepper. Amber pour with decent initial head. Very bitter finish. Tap at Red Apron.

Didn’t know much about this beer, but everything I’ve had from Oskar Blues has been stellar. Guessing it’s a bit like an IPA version of Dale’s Pale Ale and that sounds good to me.
Poured an auburn, caramel, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of off-white, frothy head. Some bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Good uneven, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. (Sight - 4.25)
Smelled a nice whiff of hops with a heavy malt backbone. Got resin hops, caramel malts, mango rind, herbal hops, tropical notes, red grapefruit, wet pine and vegetables - onions, garlic and faint broccoli. (Smell - 3.50)
Taste was a little bit better, but still dank and lots of herbal/vegetable notes. Specifically got earthy tropical hops, herbal hops, bitter mango rind, pine, resin, hints of Jolly Rancher candy (watermelon), Dorado hops and some onions. (Taste - 3.75)
Medium body. Creamy-to-oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Abrupt, bitter finish. (Feel - 3.50)
I just thought this was an OK offering overall. Nothing I would recommend. (Overall - 3.75)

Pours bright clear orange with two finger pillowy head. smell is quite the powerful punch of vibrant citrus and pine with a dark resinous tone. Danklike qualities. Taste is more heavy pine, resin, some grapefruit and more dank. Sweet caramel undertones. Almost a creaminess to the finish with a slick mouthfeel. Very nice
