COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Emphasizing that complexity of character can arise from simple elements, this ale is made with three malts and one hop. Its light amber color and slightly spicy malt character are derived from the use of German Dark Munich Malt and Rye Malt respectively. North American 2-row barley combines with the other grains to lay the foundation for the hop onslaught to come. Summit hops are used exclusively in the boil for bitterness, flavor and aroma but it doesn’t end there. Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the 10% ABV monstrosity to gently coax the citrus rind and grapefruit aroma to join the 100 IBUs already present. This beer should greet you with a pungent citrus blast, provide a spicy yet round middle and finish with a brisk, clean bitterness. Columbus in early and mid kettle.
** This beer will now feature different hops in the massive dry hop every year.
2014 - Sorachi Ace, Mosaic, and Chinook. Incredibly complex mix of lemon zest, pineapple, red berries, peach, and a hint of dank earthiness.

IndianaRed (2315) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Can from Brewtopia, pours a clear light orange/amber with a medium sized sandy cord head quickly dissipating to a thin film. Grassy woody pine hop aroma. Flavor is sweet and woody. A litle furniture polish in there too. Some kind of wierd fruity slant. Smooth slick palatte. Soft carbonation. A bit odd.

This beer was excellent. It had a very robust aroma and great taste of dry hopping with a flash of citrus.

Can from South Bay Drug. Pours amber with a 3 finger foamy, ringy, clingy off-white head. Aroma is authentic cat piss. Medium body with mild, creamy carbonation. Flavor is strong caramel with an incredible amount of hop. Very citric/grapefruit. Finishes very, very bitter. But it’s not a harsh bitter. Brilliant.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
pours out a gold producing a 2 finger thick off white frothy head that fell at a pretty slow rate. the body is a hazy pale orange with some co2 present. the aromas are pungent, a little spicy, malty, hoppy, skunky, and yeasty. theres also some citrus and or lemon present. it is medium bodied and starts out malty with a hop storm right behind the initial finish. the mouthfeel is creamy, and it finishes creamy. its really balanced and pretty enjoyable. not a bad beer and very refreshing.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Clear amber brown pour with a one finger off white head. The aroma is bursting with tropical fruit- mango, pineapple, papaya, guava, citrus, and herbal resin. The flavor is hugely dank and far more resinous that the aroma would suggest. Tons of herbal grass, evergreen, orange citrus, caramel-toffee, and the overarching palate scorching resin. The palate is thick for the style with excellent body, caressing effervescence, and a smooth resinous smacking sticky finish. Delicious.

Clear orange-amber pour with a smallish white head. Aroma holds tons of mango, pineapple, orange, and guava; just massive amounts of fruity hop character. Also some herbal notes, perhaps tarragon or mint. A touch of earthiness is in the background as well. Flavor is wayyy more resinous than the aroma; lots of pine sap, spruce, and freshly cut grass that cuts out a lot of the lighter fruit notes, leaving mostly citrus. Herbal and floral characteristics are present as well, with nice caramel malt balancing out the hops. Palate is sticky and smacking, but glides down smoothly. Damn good DIPA; another great beer from Oskar Blues.
