4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at the Falling Rock Tap House in Denver. Big white head with a sturdy, drable head over a deep gold body. Huge citrus aroma that is fresh and inviting, aromas of honey and light fruit lurk underneath. Quite smooth, without harshness or offensive bitterness. The citrus character is massive, almost like drinking grapefruit juice. Very well balanced for a beer with such high IBU’s as the bitterness is refreshing and palate cleansing, but not overpowering. One of the best imperial IPA’s that I have had in a long time.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from can to glass. Clear amber straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is huge with essences of sugars, melon, caramel, orange, mango, pine, ripe limes, straw. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a full body and great carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout but not cloying with a nice rounded bitterness following and a sweet ethanol finish. Overall, this is a fantastic I2PA.

Can from Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent amber with a thin layer of cream colored head. Aroma of very nice floral hops. Taste of citrus upfront that fades to a pleasant hoppiness.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Zach. Thanks! This hides the 10% alcohol well because I didn’t even realize it until I read the can. Bursting aroma comes out with citrus, floral, and I got some nutty and toasty malt from it. Appearance was amber, clear, with decent size head. Almost positive I got a hint of berries when drinking it. Also got citrus, spice, and a nice sweetness to start. Not very bitter at the end. Overall solid beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy blonde-golden with a thick eggshell cap that hangs around and leaves some intricate, soapy lace. Nose involves plenty of tropical fruit, passion fruit, juicy fruit (the gum), citrus, some melon, and some subtle spice along with some cocoa butter. Pretty sweet flavor, but also pretty bitter, balanced. Medium to full bodied, quite oily, juicy, with a drying bitter hop finish. Really tasty, very "summery," does not seem as strong as it is. Love the juicy-ness.

Wow! Watch our for this one. 10%ABV hidden well. A very good double IPA (maybe a triple?) by Oscar Blues. Just what you would expect! Enjoy!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this on a gravity pour. Poured a nice copper color and had no lacing whatsoever. Tasted of hops and citrus...mostly grapefruit. Perfectly bitter and dangerous at 10% abv. A must try if you see it on gravity!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Can to snifter. Pours an attractive copper with a wee bit of head and nice lacing. Powerful citrus nose, though not overwhelming. Smooth, clean delivery--particularly given the potency. Slightly sticky with a nice boozy kick at the end. More greatness from Oskar Blues.
