4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
G'knight - a beer I've had many times. Perfect because it's in a can and therefore is portable pretty much anywhere I want to go. Poured into a porter glass.
A - looks amazing. Red/amber color with 2 fingers off white head that dissipates to 1 finger of lumpy head. Lacing the glass already without even taking a sip. Each swig leaves a perfect ring of lacing on the glass.
S - Citrusy/floral hops balanced by caramel/bready malts. Little bit of brown sugar in there too.
T - Sweet. A lot of caramel malt w/ nice hop fruitiness. A lot of orange/lemon/lime flavors along w/ strawberry in there. The "red" part of the ipa is giving a smoother and sweeter taste with this one, which I like.
M - Light-medium. Carbonation is light-medium too. Alcohol completely hidden. Leaves a light bitter/fruity flavor from the hops in your mouth.
O - Great beer. I love this beer and I think it's nearly as good as Ten FIdy. The fact that Oskar Blues cans their beers makes them portable almost anywhere, which is another important aspect. Within it's genre it's probably the best red IPA I've had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can 355ml, a clear copper beer with low head. Nose is intense in hop resin and coconut oil, caramel, sugar. Aroma is intense on hop resin, pine,mango, coconut oil, robust body quite sweet, more a dipa than an apa. Anyway good and strong but clearly overrated.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Bue à la pression. Couleur rouge rubis intense, limpide, c?est beau ! Mousse crémeuse qui ne trépasse pas, nez caramel et houblons un peu résineux. Bonne rondeur en bouche, dominante de caramel avec ce qu?il faut d?épices. Réglisse et toffee en fin de bouche, et un chouïa de cerise/framboise quand elle est encore bien fraiche. Top de chez top !

This has been a favorite of mine for years and thankfully, continues to earn that distinction. It pours a nice think malty red and the nose is a sticky mess of gooey hawaiian punch sweets and malty hoppy gnarl. The taste is total lick smacking red ale hop loveliness, round and smooth and bitter and refreshing. The 8.7% is present but still fairly hidden all things considered. A real treat for red ale fans and hop heads alike! One of my all time favorites and one I revisit regularly. Good for kicking off a mediocre Wrestlemania card all by yourself while you await the late night return of your superior 50%.

Ámbar oscuro con media corona de espuma, aromas a resina, lúpulo, maracuyá, papaya, caramelo y flores; en boca entrada potente, maltosa, fuerte carga de maltas caramelo, amargor medio, con final de trago dulce; cuerpo medio pleno con ajustada carbonatación, alcohol bien integrado, notas a caramelo y frutas tropicales, más ibus de amargor le vendría bien, por lo demás excelente cerveza.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy amber to copper body with a beige, long-lived head that sticks to the glass. Strong aroma of caramel, red berries, generic fruits with hints of tropical fruits, and pine, upon a spicy and peppery background. Strong flavour of sweet caramel, dark caramel, slightly overripe tropical fruits, red berries and roasted malt. Moderate sweet taste with a pretty heavy bitter and pleasantly long-lasting finish. Medium body, creamy texture, rather soft carbonation. A really nice one indeed!
