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.

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.
