A bit of a confused beer this one. Itís at once sickly sweet and too bitter. Gently perfumy, and aggressively pungent. Complex but made up of simple blunt notes. To say "I donít like it" just doesnít do it justice. Itís not a bad beer, just that the parts donít come together to form a pleasing whole, for my palate.

aroma is malty with some citrus hoppiness,subtle floral quality appearance is the model for ipaís nice lasting sudsy then foamy white head cloudy orange red/amber color..tatste is like the aroma its an east coast ipa style for sure even thoughn its from colorado with hoppiness up front then citrus qualities then bitterness then the malty background..not as strong of a hoppy flavor as some but this isnt necessarily a complaint..tingly and smooth mouthtfeel bitter aftertaste that begs you to have more.. excellent drinkablitly well masked abv generally strong flavored but balanced and smooth.. given an extra overall point for having one of the most accurate commercial descriptions Ive ever read as usual good stuff from oskar blues

From can picked up at Ryan and Caseyís.
Small head, and fairly clear amber body. As outlined, a citrus aroma (I donít get the grapefruit they suggest; more tart orange), but with a bit of honey coming through as well. Smooth, and fairly clean body -- especially given the heat on this bad boy. Crisp finish. One of my favorite IPAs around.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz can---->snifter, Pours a cloudy gold with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, lemon zest,bubblegum, and grapefruit. Taste is a great blend of sweet malt and tropical citrus. Most IIPAs go overboard with the malt sweetness, but not this one. Medium palate with great bitterness. This is a VERY SOLID IIPA.

A gigantic DIPA!!! Canned on 2/27/13. A big grainy, honey, caramel, malt base, layered with resinous herbs and citrus. Not a West Coast hop bomb.. More of a 50/50 malt/hop balance.. Big grainy, honeyed malt, mixed with a big, resinous, hop bitterness... And high alcohol.. Long, lingering finish of bitter citrus and resinous herbs and florals.. A straight up huge DIPA.

On tap at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont Circle, March 2010. Pours a transparent amber with a thin white head. Aroma has lots of super sticky, sweet citrus and some alcohol. Taste is citrusy and hoppy, but the citrus is too sweet and somewhat medicinial. Finish is bitter, but not enough to wash away the sugar.

Taken from old notes. Draft. Typical DIPA nose of citrus. Nicely balance body with a bitter finish that makes for an easy drinking DIPA.
