3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to zach for this. Pours a golden yellow with a thin white foam. Aroma is a punch of grapefruit and floral. Taste is abrasive alcohol and hop bite followed by citrus and pine. Nice beer but not an everyday beer. Packs a punch.

12oz can pours hazy amber with nice frothy off white head. Floral aroma is pungent as soon as can is opened, also caramel and citrus. Has is very sweet with a creamy texture. Taste is a good balance of sweet and bitter, caramel, pine, and grapefruit. Well rounded and enjoyable.

Well this is an IIPA alright! Poured a hazy amber, modest but dense creamy head. Nose with rich with piney hops, touch of citrus and some body odor. Light fruity malts beneath. Flavor is strong on the hops, with a zingy, resiny hop flavor. Malts understated, with a honeyed tone. Strong, sharp bitter finish with a piney bite and a lingering sting of alcohol on the palate.

Can. Pours a Cloudy orange copper with a small frothy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is a sweet fruity malt and floral hop. Medium mouthfeel with a smooth bitter cascade hops with caramel and a nice smooth finish. Hides the alcohol extremely well makim it easy to drink. Enjoyed this one, a very impressive IIPA from Oskar Blues.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gubna pours out of the can to form a bubbly, frothy white head with a hazy orange color. Aroma is very strong and defining, with a bit of an almost yeast-like character and spicy, piny, sappy hops and an almost sour malt. Flavor is more of the same experience, light and smooth, with a little citrus, but packing a big punch. A little soapy overall, with a cheek-puckeringly hoppy bitter and slightly alcoholic finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice citrus and pine aroma to start. The pour is a slightly cloudy amber with a very nice creamy head that laces and lasts. The flavor is malty sweet up front with a nice peppery hop at the back. The sweetness is prevalent throughout. Finish is dry despite the sweetness. Very nice indeed. There is no evidence of the alcohol content and I was quite surprised when I saw how high it was. Nice cans too.

From a can. This poured a clear orange color with an average size foamy white head and good lacing. Nose is of malts but more floral and citrus hops. Body is medium with as slick oily mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet in the beginning but moves quickly to lots of bitterness that carries over in to the finish. Excellent stuff.
