16 oz. tallboy can into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Hazy, orange/ amber color, small white head with big soapy foam that quickly reduced to a ring, leaving nice lacing. Really great hop profile; grapefruit, pine and tropical fruit. The flavor is dominated by lots of pine and resin. The malts are subtle but the caramel is noticeable to help with balance.
Even with all the pine resin, it still finishes real nice without any harshness at all. Overall, no hop lover would ever be disappointed with this brew. Very nice.

Can pour, what else? Cloudy golden amber color. Thick off white head leaving a lot of lacing down the glass. Spicy, citrusy, piney aroma, quite pungent. Flavor almost reflects the aroma exactly, lingering hop bitterness on the back end. This beer can sneak up on you, more than one and you’re at your own risk. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 on tap: Darker than the average dipa. Very sweet considering its only 8% abv. Had better, the pale ale walks over this....
canned. Not as sweet as on tap, very bitter but highly drinkable. Nice IPA

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. There’s 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.

Tall boy from Lotto Liquor poured into pint glass. Thick, creamy, lasting head, resinous aroma. I’m sold on this beer when poured into a glass. Haven’t tried straight from the can.
