4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Canned 2/20/13 "Happy G’Birthday!"
Appearance: Like any other Oskar Blues product, crystal clear. This one has a color you’d expect -- red. The head is off-white, meringue-like, and about a finger high. Lacing is spotty but nice.
Smell: A very nice blend of hops, and it’s hard to pinpoint one aroma that I’m getting out of it ... the "aftersmell" is super sweet, which is the best part about it. After digging for a little while, I finally decided that this beer has a pretty significant pineapple and tropical fruit aroma.
Taste: Malty flavors coat the mouth quite a bit thanks to the fact that this is a red, but the intense amount of hops balance that sweetness extremely well. Peppery, spicy hops burn the back of the tongue just a little bit, and I find that it’s a great way to make sure the malt isn’t too dominant. The finish is a tad bitter, but the front is pretty sweet, so again, very nice balance here overall.
Feel: The feel on this one is nearly perfect -- it’s a pretty big beer (ABV wise and someone heavy in the feel as well), and it almost drinks like a meal. At the same time, the drinkability on this one is crazy high.
Overall: This could be my favorite Oskar Blues offering. Dale’s Pale is a great pale ale with a refreshing hop kick, Mama’s Little Yella is a must-try for anybody that’s a Bud Light only person (since it has a pretty light, but solid flavor), Deviant Dale’s is a huge, burning, whale of an IPA... but G’Knight is just better, despite how good all of those beers are. Super tasty, refreshing, gets the job done... must try.

Not really my thing. Looks beautiful - nice ruby-copper with lasting, clingy top. Aroma is somewhat musty, spicy earthen with some resin notes. Flavor has a good bitter at the front, amongst tropical fruits, that ends up lingering unpleasantly. Not a very clean finish. Maybe a bit more malt than I’d like. Sometimes dipas do this unbalanced thing I don’t so much enjoy.
