Pour was light golden, frothy head. Aroma and flavor was fruit and heavy pine/herb with a touch of the onion/garlic...made me feel like there was some Summit in there (which I hate). Mouthfeel was light, yet oily at the same time. I can’t really say why, but I didn’t really like it.

Clear copper pour with a fluffy off-white head.
Resinous pine and citrus hop aroma.
The flavor is resiny like the aroma. To me it is harsh and coarse, I get the same thing out of fresh Arrogant Bastard.
The body is full - a bit syrupy.

This is a BIG beer! Pours dark honey color with a big, thick retained head. Big aromas of pine and citrus. Flavor is intensly bitter from start to finish. Palate is oily and the finish is spicy. Very good beer.

The flavor was delicious-- full of hops and flavor. I'm not sure if it was the particular can that I got, but there wasn't much carbonation with this beer, which is the only thing I would do to improve this tasty beer.

Cans aren’t too fresh out here in New York City, 4/13/12 on the bottom.
Dank nose, real dank, like someone just weeded the garden if you know what I’m saying. Great floral hop bite, with a smooth bitter linger. Lacking a bit in the carbonation, but retains that sticky frothy head I always associate with Oskar beers.
One day they’ll distribute in MN... One day. Until then I’ll be on the lookout for a fresh can somewhere outside of NYC.

Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. A really citrusy IPA, with a smooth, thicker texture. A really good beer.

A copper pour, only slightly hazy. Frothy head. Mild hoppy aroma with some brown sugary sweetness. Flavor is very robust, hoppy and yet maintains a mild medium light body. The lacing is superb. The finish, potent and bittly awesome.

Rusty color with a foam white head. Smell is heavy on citrus and piney hops. Tons of sticky hop taste. Resinous hops and a sticky mouthfeel. Nice.

Light amber with a thin white head, aroma is piney with a tiny bit of grass. Flavor is big pine hops up front balanced out by a good malt presence. Slight grapefruit in the finish. Very tasty IPA, excellent with spicy food.
