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.

cbfobes (2846) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2011
On tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, pours a hazy dark golden/orange with a nice thick white head and sticky lacing through out the entire glass, aroma has a huge kick of citrus and tropical fruit with a nice backing of hops, the flavor is a great mixture of hops with mango and other tropical fruits, the mouthfeel is almost of an imperial IPA and it feels like a "big" beer. I was actually very happy with this brew, worth it alone to drive to Old Fashioned and get this fresh.

Kind of a West Coast IPA - huge hop bitterness with resin flavor, not a lot in the malt department. Good fine carbonation. Nice hop aroma. Thick, tight off-white head, that slowly settles. Good drinking beer.

Draft at stone tap. Literally no aroma but that is made up for by the creamy white nitro head. Thats a really good nitro IPA. Sheet lace. Fantastic brew and best one from Oso Ive had in memory.

TET (2335) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2016
An orange beer, a head is big and almost white. Aroma is great and aromatic, sweet tropical fruits, papaiyas and even passion, fruit candies, some citrusfruits. Taste has tropical fruits, papaiyas, grapefruits, the bitterness is medium and enough, long lasting and slightly piney. Medium bodied, balanced carbonation. Great aroma. The beer for easy enjoyment.

Bottle from Bottlecraft, Hanley. Pours golden with white head. I expected this to be overly bitter but its really well balanced. Well hopped easy drinking strong pale ale. Refreshing.

Growler from Historic Casanova. Pour is clear amber with a frothy white head that leaves a thin film and collar. Aroma is pine and grapefruit rind with some grass and flowers. Taste is clean bitter pine hops and grapefruit zest with a resiness and malty backbone. Palate is medium sticky and chaulky which finishes dry. Great IPA!
