3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brassy colored with a luscious, hoppy beige head. Full bodied hop aroma akin to an American Strong Ale. Powerful fruity, juicy, pineapple and floral hoppiness. Strong juicy, punchy hop body with a blend of grapefruit, pineapple, and orange, with a touch of vodka. Alcohol presence amplifies the fruit notes. Strong stuff, but there is a enough balance to hold this together.

Pours a gorgeous reddish color with excellent lacing and decent head retention. Smells malty and bitter. Not much floral aroma, but it is a red after all. Tastes of alcohol and lots of malt. A great beer!

This unique double IPA has an amber hue and white head. Monster aromas of sticky / piney / resiny hops are unforgettable. Seriously overhopped, but the caramel maltiness is what makes this more than just another IPA. One of my absolute favorite IPAs!

I usually assume imperials to be on the bitter side for my taste, but surprisingly not the case with this beer. Dry hops seem to make a big difference. Overall very impressed with oskar blues!

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2015 On tap at Park Tavern. Cooper golden nearly amber color of white head. Nice creamy amber red style mouth-feel with caramel sweetness. Balanced with lots of tropical piney hop flavors and bitterness. Finish is nice and hopy but not ultra bitter like deviant dales.

This is a big ole heavy DIPA. Looks amazing, great palate for the style, overall very well made. Drinkable, just very filling. More hops than malt, but not overwhelming. Good offering from a brewery that is growing on me.

On tap at Park Tavern, Navy Yard DC. Pours beautiful copper color with about a finger head. Aroma of grains and caramelized sugar. Palate of typical with Oskar Blues beers. Taste of excellent hops flavors with caramelized sweetness. Pretty high ABV but a darn good purchase.
