3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tall boy can. Pours dark copper with a large, fluffy, beige head. The aroma is pine hops, and caramel. The flavor is very bitter, with a little malt sweetness. The palate is heavy, creamy, and very astringent. Overall, this is a delicious and strong IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tall boy can poured a light amber in color with a one finger off white head that retained well. Aroma has some dank nuggets, sticky resins, dry citrus, and a nice malted base. Mouth feel is medium with nice coating and average carbonation. Flavor has such a perfect match of malts and hops. Light sweetness, grapefruit, citrus, super dank nuggets, medium bitterness, perfume, and a nice lingering firm finish. Wow, I am surprised they did not put a widget of hop cones in here (I really should patent that) to juice it up. Lets not overlook the fact the cans are dated! +.1

16 oz can. Pours light amber with creamy off-white head. Aroma is malty with resiny pine, earth with nice earthiness. Flavor is much the same with a nice malty sweetness slight pungent fruit, grassy and matching aggressive bitterness. Medium body with medium high carbonation. Overall, solid brew!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Pours amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is of citrus, hops, floral notes, and malt. Smells very malty and insanely dank. Taste is of bitter biting hops, witha sharp alcohol bite. Has a fair amount of citrus and floral notes. Long lingering taste of citrus and hops. Very boozy, but evened out nicely by the dank hop character. This is a damned good beer.

This is a good beer. :) If you ever wonder if the beer you’re drinking is copper colored, compare it to this one. I’ve never seen a more coppery colored beer. Lots of great head, unlike my first marriage. Sticky and sweet with huge pine and grapefruit hops, but also well balanced. NOT a session beer....but I’d like to try it anyway.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a rich honey color with off-white head. Smells pleasantly hoppy, wit nice floral and pine aromas coming through quite clearly. Medium body that gives some respectable heft to this 8% beer. Tastes great: sticky, resiny hop profile, some decent malt underneath, but the hops are the star of this production. Finishes with assertive bitterness. Seems a little unbalanced to be truly great, but this is a solid beer in every sense.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 Attaque massive des conifères, extrêmement résineux et fruité en arôme. C’est une des entrées les plus excitantes possible pour une IPA. Oskar blues semble avoir pondu un autre classique. En bouche c’est les oranges, mangues, agrumes, pins dans un corps collant et sucré. L’amertume est percutante et est à la hauteur de l’immensité des saveurs.
