this one suprised me. that is why is pays to get the whole flight.....I would never pick an imperial red based on the name alone, but now I know better. pours a deep red with a nice sized head that stays put. good maltiness and hopiness- better balance to me than the deviant. More drinkable. Hops come through but don’t bully the other ingredients out of the way in this one. still really a red ipa to me, but really good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16oz can. Pours mostly clear copper with an offwhite head. Aroma is malty, spicy and piney. Taste follows the nose. A little sweet followed by a pleasant bitterness. Actually very nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth, but has a perfect fizz to it. Body is medium-full. Abv is mostly hidden; perhaps a little bite in the finish. Good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A crystal clear body on the darker side of amber momentarily supports a 2" soft white, tight-somewhat frothy head leaving lacing of erratic spots, dots, peninsulas, and large islands sporting coral textured depth
Smooth juicy-dank nature, tropical and herbal on a highly quaffable, yet sticky, silky smooth body, this one seems a little bit less dense than the other Oskars I’ve had with a sharp, elongated residual of citrus rind and sweet fruit juice with a building spicy herbal edge

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Slightly hazy amber head with a thick foamy off-white head. Aroma of peach, pine and mandarin. Sweet and bitter taste. A bit too much alcohol on finish, could use some more bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly hazy copper with a tan creamy head. Aroma of piney hops with grassy and slight citrus notes. Roasted malt flavors with resinous pine bitterness to balance out this red ale. Dangerously drinkable.
