3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can, of course. I couldnít believe how good this beer looked when poured - a nice, golden brown with a big head. Aroma is of strong hops - based on smell alone it could easily be considered an IPA - and a strong one - although itís not classified as one. Rich, complex taste - definitely overwhelming citrus with a very bitter finish. Reminds me quite a bit of sea hag, with a thinner mouthfeel and a stronger bitter kick at the end. Good.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Very nice pale ale, big hop flavor and aroma, very piney. Being from a can and a pretty ugly one at that I had passed over this beer many times but I am glad I gave it a shot, A pleasant surprise.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A great APA and from a can, no less. Aroma was a little weak but was all hops. Pour was absolutely beautiful. Hazy orange with a huge frothy 2 finger white head that lasted most of the drink. Taste was very hoppy for an APA which I liked. There was a great caramel malt backbone to this beer that balanced it out perfectly. Great beer.

Poured from a can. Pours a clear tawny color with a nice white head. Aroma of piney hops. Nice citrus, piney hop flavor that is just the right viscosity. Easy to drink, another good one from Oskar Blues.

Appearance: Pale gold with a thick clingy head.

Flavour: Clean and citrusy hop character, resinous bitterness, almost piney, good balace with malty sweet character.
Mouthfeel: Light body creamy and well carbonated.
Overall: Assertively bitter, resinous hops clean and a little like a pale ale on steroids. Who says you canít get good beer in a can?

A perfect appearance just cause itís in a can. HA. This is definitely an IPA, and a particularly brutal one at that. All hops, piney with no citrus, a bit like green bananas.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can: Poured clear amber with a long lasting off-white head. Aroma was slightly piney. The initial taste was hoppy, which then faded to a caramel and cardboard like malt taste, and then finished with a pleasant soft hop taste. Not a bad beer, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber body, medium sized bubbles in off white head; Medium sized quite sweet hoppy slightly caramelled nose; Soft carbonation, soft texture, oth very nice, bitter but a little to sweet to be very fresh; Bitter sweet finish to full to be really fresh. Alright beer, not boring at all just a bit out of balance and a bit strangely composed.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2013 Can. Re-rated 2013-03-14. Dark golden/orange color color with an off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notes of citrusfruit, flowers and caramel. Tastes is first a bit sweet then hoppy with notes of citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel, alcohol, a hint of plastic. The finish is bitter, dry and a bit metallic. Too much alcohol and hint of plastic messes up the drinkability for me.
