3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: four ounce sampler from (nitro) tap at Beer Junction.
Aroma: heavily piney, hoppy.
Appearance: large, creamy, off-white, initial head with excellent lacing and fully lasting longevity. Clear, flat, orange body.
Taste: harshly bitter initial flavor and finish with long duration.
Palate: full body, creamy texture and no carbonation.
Overall: everything about this beer was fantastic except for the taste. It was extremely hoppy to the point where it was really great at first but difficult to finish. I’d try it again, but it seems to be more of a novelty than something I’d drink every day.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can @ home, thx Vaiz. Aroma is big and bold fruity, piney and light herbal hops, some caramel malt notes. Flavour is big and malty with lightly burned caramel at first, then fruity hops with building bitterness, then more burned caramel. Hefty but very nice.
