UPDATED: DEC 5, 2014 A really solid example of the style, lots of resinous hop notes with a pretty flavorful malt profile that isn’t sweet and offers nice light caramel notes. Another good offering from OB. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUL 12, 2012
16 oz. can. Amber/red pour with a nice white head. This is one awesome and hoppy beer. The resiny hops bring the aroma to the front and there is some light maltiness present as well. The bitterness in the taste is just right. A strong IPA at 8%, and it just kills it. Way to go Oskar Blues! joebudzjoe (676) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft @ Monster B’s. An aggressively hopped IPA with sweet caramel malt notes. Lots of bitterness and some grass notes. Medium to heavy body. Pretty good, but I prefer Dale’s Pale Ale. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Hazy amber pour with a tight sticky white head. The nose is full of big, brash resinous hops over a fairly lean (but still there) malt base. A touch of chewiness and some pine and resinous flavour. Chewy and sticky and a little bit dank. There are some nice spicy notes just underneath the heavy pine and resin which adds some nice complexity to the nose. Good stuff here. jbardin (161) - New York, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Can at sunset beer co. Been meaning to try this for a while. It's a really great hop bomb--it is one of the better examples of the style that doesn't cross over into the transcendence territory of a Pliny.

these guys really don’t make a bad beer. I even like their pilsener, a style I normally despise. this one is over the top good. 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Pours a very light copper with golden highlights, very tight and thick foam that leaves generous cobweb like lacing on the sides of the glass. Slightly hazy. Aroma is all hops up front, dank and wet. Citrus, orange peel, and a toasted biscuit-like malt aroma. Flavor is sweetly malty but not heavy nor sugary. Malt really shines through with a cracker-like doughy flavor, dare I even say slightly savory. The hops are very clean and display a distinct profile. Floral and citrusy at the same time with a very subtle fruitiness. Finishes exceptionally clean. Bitterness is smooth and not harsh nor catty. The aftersip leaves the drinker with neither a sweet nor overly bitter aftertaste. I’m not sure if I have ever rated a beer this high. rocbyter (2123) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Sweet citrus aroma with a light amount of resin. Clear orange color with a large white head. Sweet beginning quickly turning to bitterness in the middle and fading slightly in the finish. Lighter palate. Boutip (6374) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2012
Can: Poured a deep amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of floral and bitter hops with light pine notes is quite interesting. Taste is dominated by floral bitter hoppy notes with some light pine notes and clean semi-dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation and alcohol is well hidden. Not bad but I was expecting an even bigger hops assault.
