4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
G'knight - a beer I've had many times. Perfect because it's in a can and therefore is portable pretty much anywhere I want to go. Poured into a porter glass.
A - looks amazing. Red/amber color with 2 fingers off white head that dissipates to 1 finger of lumpy head. Lacing the glass already without even taking a sip. Each swig leaves a perfect ring of lacing on the glass.
S - Citrusy/floral hops balanced by caramel/bready malts. Little bit of brown sugar in there too.
T - Sweet. A lot of caramel malt w/ nice hop fruitiness. A lot of orange/lemon/lime flavors along w/ strawberry in there. The "red" part of the ipa is giving a smoother and sweeter taste with this one, which I like.
M - Light-medium. Carbonation is light-medium too. Alcohol completely hidden. Leaves a light bitter/fruity flavor from the hops in your mouth.
O - Great beer. I love this beer and I think it's nearly as good as Ten FIdy. The fact that Oskar Blues cans their beers makes them portable almost anywhere, which is another important aspect. Within it's genre it's probably the best red IPA I've had.

"also from a can...pours like a bright, fresh ipa. highly aromatic hops, slightly thicker and sweeter mouthfeel and flavor. Oskar states it’s a cross between an imperial ipa, strong ale, and amber, and i can see that, although i’d definitely class it as an imperial ipa. very hoppy, and very good with a maltier backbone than expected. Man...that’s good! gotta downgrade just a tad as i hadn’t had a fresh one in a while, and when i finally did, it was a bit of a letdown."

Nice, balanced aroma with sweet bread/malt/caramel, pine, citrus, and citrus. Flavor is a little milder than I expected, slightly sweet and nutty. Strong, fruity, bitter finish. More of an IPA than anything else, but different from most of the double IPAs out there, and in a good way.

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.

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.
