Dark gold almost amber. Little to no head. Very Piney nose. Thick rich malts with a firm compleat pine structure. Long substantial finish. What I expect from Oskar. Must try for hoppy fans. From can.

Can. Amber pour with a tall, fluffy beige head. Strong citrusy hops in the aroma along with soft pine, floral notes and caramel. Taste is strong citrus oils, pine resins, floral hop notes, caramel, and sticky, sweet malt. Thereís some candied orange as well. Body is medium-full with a strong, creamy carbonation, light stickiness and a strong lingering hop bitterness. More citrus oils during the finish along with candied orange, caramel, sweet malt, softer pine, tropical fruit, and floral hops. Nice!

Draft at Blowtoad. Medium reddish amber, slight lasting head. Aroma caramel and citrus hops. Flavor is a blast of pine, some slight citrus, and fairly thick caramel malt backbone. Hop flavor is nice, but there is a harshness to this beer that detracts. Have sampled this multiple times now in various formats, always the same basic conclusion.

Strong aromaís of resin/pine from the glas, retronasal itís more tropical fruit (mango springs to mind), some citrus & sweet malts. Flavor is medium sweet, a little roast and a mild bitter backbone. Medium bodied. Finishes quite dry and eventually bitter.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2013 Aroma is perfect hoppiness. Very full head which is awesome. Perfect mouth fill not to sweet nice balance. A great low gravity double ipa at eight. Calling it an IPA, its just pretty awesome.

Rerated this batch was way to sweet, not really balanced. Not bad though.

Pours a very hazy copper with a nice off white head that dwindles to a thin layer and then sticks around. Extremely "sticky" lacing coats the glass. Smells great: fruit, caramel, dough, and some pine. Tastes of the same; I get mango for the fruit and a strong resiny presence. Phenomenal beer. OB does it again. Not surprised.

Guess I expected more. More what, Iím not sure, I guess a hair more malty backbone to balance it out. I love hops as much as the next guy, but . . . poured a nice amber color, fantastic aroma, but in the end it was so bitter it was almost ear-waxy flavored or something. Nice mouthfeel, good viscosity, but with the A**-kickin scotch ale these guys produce I KNOW they know the value of malt flavor. Just a bit off-balance for my tastes, but if youíre a hophead you should try. Beauty is in the tastebuds of the beholder.

16oz Can 3 months old from Casanova liquor.. Pour is a deeper Garnett than I thought and nose is hoppy and dank taste is the same but more balanced and almost thick and chewy like a cloying clinging sensation which muddles the hops
