2.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Muddy brown. Nice refreshing hoppines aroma. Bitter hoppy taste. Taste not refreshing at all, because the bitterness lingers too long.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2010 Rated 7/22/07. Cloudy amber color with a beautiful, pillowy, cream colored head. Excellent lacing all the way down the glass. Lively but balanced carbonation. Aroma is strong and hoppy, with mostly grassy, citrusy and herbal hops, accompanied by heaps of sweet caramel malt. Flavors are largely the same, again giving bold citrus, pine, and grass hop notes amidst ample caramel malt sweetness. Not overly complex. Well executed in its simplicity. Heavy on the sweet side. Sticky on the finish, as advertised. Good in small doses on rare occasions, but nothing I’d drink regularly.

Probably the best DIPA I have had since Moylander. Deep amber in color with a nice white head. Oozing hop aroma. Hops are mainly citric and biting with an excellent malt bone, very rich, with a hind of dryness. The burn isn’t there like on some. Very nice.

This is ok but not such a great DIPA, which it clearly is despite the description. Burnt orange with a bit of haze. Small off white head. Citrus aroma with a hint of grass. Body is a little thick, syrupy. Mildly unpleasant aftertaste. A touch of alcohol hotness. Overally I’m dissapointed, especially since their other two beers are so strong.

NorCal tasting July 07 - A double IPA in a can? Whoa. Thanks to beerguy101 (I think) for bring this one. First whiff of the beer and there was some clear floral and citrus notes coming from the glass, with a very subtle piney profile luring around underneath. Appearance is burnt orange/copper in color, nice off-white one-finger head. It felt a little too harsh on in my mouth for my liking. A generous helping of juicy citrus hop character along with some malty goodness makes this one interesting DIPA from a can. I would have probably rated it higher had the hops been more prominent (a DIPA should be all about the hops IMO). Since I’ve never had a DIPA from a can, this is clearly the best one I’ve had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2009 Almost clear orange-copper body topped by a small beige head. Hops flavour has a lot of pine-tree and some floral notes. Sparse soft carbonation. Lots of hops essence. Could have been a bit crisper. I never met Gordon Knight, the man honoured by this beer. But judging by the beer I’d say he was a sweet man. He was also very bitter but his bitterness would quickly go away. He had an alcohol breath. He was a down-to-earth person (not very fruity). He also had a heavy body and he should have showered more often cause he had an oily, very very oily body.

Medium to Dark Amber Color with Off White Skin. Piney and Citrusy Aroma with Subtle Sweet Malt Notes as Well. Medium Bodied. Crispy and Lightly Creamy Mouthfeel. Some Nice Caramel Toffee Notes..Along with Agressive, but Balanced Citrusy Hops...Some Piney Qualities to it. Very Smooth for a Strong Ale. Caramel and Hopped Finish. Oskar is a Wonderful Taste Illustration of What I would Picture in a West Coast Beer.

Can at The Rover in Göteborg. This was one of the highlights of the evening for me on our small Gothenburg pub-crawl in July 2007, and it kind of feels wrong to put a beer like this in a can ;) It’s warm golden with a nice, creamy head. The aroma is beautiful and alluring with hoppy notes of pine, citrus and fruit. The mouthfeel is smooth and oily. The flavour has an impressive caramel-base, loads of citrus, pine, slightly sweet citrus fruits and a lot of other hoppy notes and a nice bitterness - yummi, I fell in love with this one... 2379

Pours a reddish orange out of the can with a small white head. I was looking forward to this one. There is something fascinating about beer from a can that is good. Anyways, it is a strong brew, very hoppy, nose of floral hops and pine. Taste was much the same, with just enough malt to balance it out. Very nice beer.
