(11/1/08) Draught at Father’s Office in Santa Monica. Slightly hazy amber color. Hoppy aroma with some flowers and some light toasty malt notes. Sweetish flavor with some malt and caramel. Continues bitter and hoppy with a bit of citrus and light spicy hops notes. Medium-bodied. Quite nice. 7/3/7/3/14=3.4
On tap at The Yard House. Pours a clear golden amber with a rich creamy off white head. Lacing and head retention is excellent. Aroma is citrusy hops and sweet bready malt. Flavor is again mostly hops, but with a very nice caramel malt backbone. Well balanced with a bitter finish. Medium bodied and super smooth. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2009
I have been surprised by almost every OB beer. This one pours a deep yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is malt, citrus (grapefruit), and some piney hop notes. Flavor is lots of malt with mellow floral and bitter citrus and pine hops harmonizing together. Noticeable lemon, in the flavor and a bit of grapefruit in the finish. Very enjoyable beer.

Hmm. It’s interesting so many have had this on bottle.
Appearance: Pours a clear, orangey-amber body with a taller, off-white head.
Smell: Very punchy, hop-laden nose smelling richly of orange zest, grapefruit wedges, and pine sap. There’s a light backing of maltiness, but, for the most part, this is a hopcentric aroma.
Taste: Brief, toasty maltiness with a crystal malt sweetness and hint of light brown sugar. Rich blend of citruses and pine with a medium-high hop bitterness. Finishes quite dry with a long, lingering bitterness and citric taste of grapefruit rinds.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Relatively smooth mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Definitely not one of those wimpy, easy-going APAs you usually cross paths with. A very flavorsome, boldly hopped pale ale, but it still remains rather drinkable. Good work, Oskar Blues.

Pours amber with a light white head. Caramelly, hoppy aroma. Flavor is rich and hoppy for a pale. Lots of sweet malts and bitter bitter hops. A nice long bitter finish. Great flavor. This is pretty awesome for a pale. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Sweet malty flavors, with a light pine hop character. A bit earthy but not to bitter. bb (9525) - Alamo, California, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Bottle. Amber beer with an off-white head. Caramel and grapefruit aroma. Grapefruit/pine flavor with caramel. Good hop flavor. Medium-light bodied. Decent bitterness. Grapefruit, pine, and caramel linger. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2008
On tap at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a copper reddish hue, big fluffy head and prominent lacing. Very big on hops in the nose, some slight grainy malt. Tasty hoppy citrus flavors, some rich sweet malty gooeyness, sugars are thick and surprisingly full-bodied. Easy to put down, despite not being the most true to Pale Ale style. Screw styles
