3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from afire- thanks bra! Well this was pungent alright! The aroma was not terrible just really odd, like a can of tennis balls (rubber and citrus). The palate was smooth and enjoyable with the abv keeping it balanced. The Summit hops although a spicy/citrus delight keeps the odd aroma in my nose. I’m an Oskar blues fan but this was a little funkafied for me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
