Bottle. The look is clear, deep golden, and thin whitish head. The smell is a musty hops, grass, malts, caramel, and floral. The taste is grassy, hops, bitterness, hops, and good.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 4, 2010
On tap at the Oso taproom. Nothing like walking around looking at hops, malt and other related items while walking around with a nice tasty IPA. Amber with a thin white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is very hoppy with grapefruit, orange, light pine and some caramel but its not quite balanced out. Taste is a hop bomb with a fair amount of malt and a high bitter and peppery finish thats pretty aggressive. Grapefruit, orange, pine and some grassy hops with some caramel and tropical fruits. IPA all day, nice job Oso.

On tap at Sugar Maple last month. The beer pours to a deep amber body with a starch white head. The aroma is bitter grass and grapefruit. Sweet mango and nectarines and deep toasted malt. Mouthwatering bitter palate.

tmoreau (3144) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - DEC 25, 2012
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and shaker served with a lightly hazed, golden hue, a modest amount of white head foam, and etched-like rings of lacing that clung to the glass. The aroma presented pleasant, expressive grapefruit, a touch of sweetness, and just a hint of resiny cattiness. The flavor was the aroma notes plus smooth malt, medium hop bitterness that lingered nicely, and was somewhat earthy and rind-like. The body was medium, and the finish matched the bitterness with a successful dryness. A well balanced, crisp, no frills IPA.

Nitro pour - Clear light amber with a creamy white head. Citrus hops on the nose, with light pale cracker malt, citrus rind, and a touch of pine. Taste is really clean, pale malt, light with lots of pine/grass/dank hops. Has a bit of the garlic/onion/dank hop finish that Ive found in Zombie Dust or New Glaruss IIPA. Creamy nitro bubbles fill the body in the mouth, fluffing it up and making it nice and creamy. Pretty good stuff, even if a little in-your-face for my tastes (though with a name like Hop Whoopin, what did I expect?).

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of citrus and tropical fruit. Taste is heavily bitter. Pine resin with grapefruit and citrus. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, awesome. This could be an everyday drinker for me.

[Tap] Tried on nitro at the taproom back in March. Bright amber/orange pour with a typical dense nitro head. Nice citrus and pine aroma. Clean taste is of dank hoppiness and sweet breads. Oddly creamy, but I think that is from the nitro more than anything. Strong pine sap bitterness to close it out. Dry and mildly alcoholic finish. Tasty.
