My wife likes it and she could not believe it had 100 IBUs because the malty base nicely complements the explosive hops. The alcohol is not well hidden though and with the rye malt seems to add a scotch like palate at its bitter end. The flavor up front is dark caramel with a nice touch of resin to it. Maybe OsKar should bottle this and stray from its can ethos for just this beer? Imagine this with a cork popping out? There is a nice creamy bubbly medium dry texture here. I’d love to have this in a bomber. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Dark gold pour with a fragerance of fruit, pine and pepper. The mouth was piney, hoppy and olive with a citrus finish.. Medium bodied, different from the norm. Spicy and good. bpreo (2840) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 23, 2010
Smells like Oscar’s, looks like Oscar’s, tastes like Oscar’s. It is! It is Oscars! mu11igan (133) - Davis, California, USA - SEP 23, 2010
At least now I know that I can’t stand a beer brewed with only summit hops. That’s the only positive thing I can say about this beer. It’s definitely not for me. mcberko (17832) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2010
12 oz. can, pours hazy, creamy golden orange with a small white head. Huge grassy and citrusy hops aroma upfront, with caramel and grapefruit as well. Flavour has a ton going on - spices, citrus hops, grass, caramel malts, dominant grapefruit towards the end, with that spiciness and bitter citrusy hops finishing. A tremendous barrage of hops - excellent.

Can. Aroma of grass, caramel malt, earth. Orange to light amber color with lace. Sweet and fruity flavor, boozy, hot, with a peppery finish. Soft, light, silky mouth. Quite sweet and boozy. Ok. bierslaaf (105) - Somerset West, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 18, 2010
Big beer with citrus aroma and lots of malt to balance the hop. Chewy and some alcohol warmth. Lasting Malty finish. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Can. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a thin layer of oily head. The aroma is a potent blend of cannabis, tropical fruit and citrusy hops. The flavor starts with strong tangerine citrus and resinous hops flavors followed by dried pineapple, caramel, orange rind and pine resin. The alcohol is very aggressive and almost overpowers all the other flavors toward the end of each sip. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and syrupy with a bitter, citrusy finish. The overall flavor is intensely bitter and borderline acidic with lots of tropical fruit and alcohol. Not bad but it definitely could have used more malt to balance things out. matty (417) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2010
On draft from a growler. Pours a golden amber with a nice white head that disipates slowly. Grapefruit/citrus aroma punches you in the nose. Very hoppy flavor nicely balanced with malt. Alcohol taste in the finish. Very good example of an Imperial IPA. Will definitely look for this one in the future. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2010
