Can. Orange pour with white head. Chewy pine aroma, with some clue of the 10 percent abv. Malty flavor with a ton of pine hop flavor and substantial warming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly amber orange with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma strong of resiny hops, slight citrus, and a nice spicy character. Flavor matches well with a bit of sweetness that I wasn’t expecting. Decently heavy, but dry on the palate and makes for a nice drink, but the price is slightly disappointing.

Can shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma is grassy hops and a bit catty without much malt. Grassy hop flavor with a nice sweet malt balance and some citrus fruit on the back end.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a light copper with thin white head. Residual lacing is nice. Huge aroma of big grapefruit and pine. Medium to full bodied as it has a little higher viscosity. But not overbearing at all. Really nice beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light gold with a very thin white head. Aroma is big and complex with tropical fruits, pineapple, citrus, and piney hops. Tastes of resinous hops; grassy and floral. Honey, pineapple, and citrus come through on the palate. Slight alcohol burn. This is one of the more complex IPA’s I’ve had in awhile, seems to change everytime I take a sip. Another solid beer from the fine people at Oskar Blues.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours an amber orange haze with a white soapy head. Has an aroma of grapefruit and pine. Nice taste. This will please those looking for the more resinous DIPA’s. You get some sweet up front and then hop blast through the finish. This may be the harshest hop resin brew I have had. Loving it. The alcohol comes through.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
can from drewbeerme/stoutfest.... pours a lucidly clear golden brown pour with a partially dense creamy white head.... aroma much akin to hopslam with sweet tropical fruit, melon, and citrusy hops with some fresh dankness in the background (i almost want to say i’m getting some of that garlic nature as well)... flavors are sweet and very earthy accentuated by citrus and herbal dankness while coinciding with a a chalky sort of texture. finishes earthy and bitter. a creamly/earthiness pervades, primarily sweet, with a hoppy bitter finish. something is a little off here but it’s stil alright.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Todd for sharing. Clear amber almost copper looking body. Aroma is fresh hops. Grapefruit, pine and citrus. Flavor is much of the same. Aftertaste has a garlic/onion edge to it. Very weird brew.
