Picked this up when I couldn’t decide if I wanted something hoppy or malty. Good, solid brew. Caramel, light toffee, citrusy, bitter hops. Enjoying the high ABV, as well!

Can from Total Wine, Summerlin. Almost clear orange pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity, sweaty, slightly floral, caramel and grapefruit. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and with a thick body. Heavy brew.

Tasted this brew at the Tasty Weasel, which is Oskar Blues Brewery tasting room, located in Longmont, CO. Great hop nose and edge upon tasting that was quenched by the malts, resulting in an unexpectedly balanced finish. This is great beer. A growler of the brew came home with us.

Tap @ Oskar Blues. A nice warm up on a cold day. Never had this brew of theirs before so I tried it out on a stop through town on vacation. Not too sweet, nice moderate hop character. Going down easy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An aroma of malt, rye and a trace of hops. Reddish amber color with a lasting creamy off white head. Sweet malt taste with grains, rye, and traces of hops. An oily feel with a sweet malt finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very hoppy! This is actually a bit more than I at the time could handle. Great aroma, which really gave me the right expectations, but the taste was as I said a bit more than I could take. Insanely bitter, with character of red apples and some dry floral stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on cask at Al’s of Hampden into a nonic pint.
A - Pours a hazy light brown with a small one finger white head that leaves light lacing down the glass.
S - Fragrant piney hops give it a grassy, leafy, aroma that helps to balance the sweetness from the caramel malts. A hint of the alcohol hides well but is present. A preview of things to come if there ever was one.
T - Huge sweetness from the malt right off the bat. The piney hops pick up where the sweetness left off. Hop flavors are similar to the nose with the addition of citrus fruits such as orange, lemon, and grapefruit. Alcohol is hidden well but is present in the finish. The bitterness from the hops are a welcome addition to this overly sweet offering.
M - Medium body with a medium-heavy flavor thanks to all the sweetness. Good carbonation. Fairly smooth with a sticky sweet finish.
D - I enjoyed this one quite a bit but the huge amounts of sweetness knocks it down a few notches. A good offering from the kings of cans.
