4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear dark amber with a moderate off-white head and substantial lacing. One of the best smelling IPAs I’ve ever tried. Full of vivid grapefruit and other citrus, caramel malt, pine, and earth. The taste is really well balanced, nice maltiness up front, and a serious bitterness throughout and at the finish. Medium-full bodied, sticky, a bit dry, a slight bit boozy, with average carbonation. Definitely one of the fullest and best IPAs I’ve ever tried.

16oz can. pours out a ruby/amber color, thin off white head. aroma off the glass is of dank piney and citrus hops accompanied by some sweet caramel malt. huge wallop of hops hit your tongue from the jump and the bitterness lingers. pretty one dimensional. i was expecting more considering the hype that was behind this one.

Great amber color with a slightly off-white, thick head. Smells of earthy piney hops. Tastes especially bitter, with the typical citrusy hops but with an unexpected sweetness.

In Oskar Blues own words, "this is a can-o-bliss!". Quite possibly one of the best beers I’ve ever had! Supercharged floral hop aroma on the pour with a beige head that is thick and creamy. Very earthy and spicy up front followed by a bitter finish that is not astringent at all. The hop bill is as close to perfect as there is. This tastes like a premium bowl of super weed. A little pricey, but worth every penny!

Can. Rich amber beer with a dark cream head. Grapefruit and pine aroma with dust and caramel. Pine and grapefruit flavor with earth and light caramel. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Pine and earth lingers with grapefruit, light woodsiness, and light caramel.

This is yet another tasty oskar blues offering. Thick complex flavor. Not thick as in syrupy, but thick like deep. Any self proclaimed IPA whore such as. Myself will surely enjoy. Excellent crisp citrus bite.

Sippin’ on that fuggin’ IPA. Woah, this one hits you with a load of pine and grapefruit/citrus right from the start. There is a caramel sweetness aroma as well, paired with other fruits such as apricot and papaya. Pour is bright orange with a white head. Flavors are intense with a heavy dose of honey and caramel, making this one rather sweet up front. Then....BOOM! Hops slap you in the face like when you get caught looking at another chick. Nice. Tons of citrus and tropical fruit with a nice dose of pine in the mix, too. Pleasantly bitter on the finish and rich in flavors all around. Excellent beer.

On tap @ Oblivion Taproom. This one had a very sweet aroma - some pine, grapefruit and honey made for an enticing scent. The body was fairly carbonated, and complimented the fresh hop character. Flavors of grapefruit, straw and light toffee was all unbalanced... but in a good way for an IPA. At 8% abv it wasn’t all that strong, but shouldn’t this be a DIPA?

Can from Market Street McKinney. Pours a deep copper color with a thin off white head. The aromas are pine, grass, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry bitter and citrucy with a medium body and good carbonation. This thing definitely has a kick but it’s one great beer! Cheers!
