3.68/5  rDev -6.1%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Pours a very hazy blend of some combination of amber, orange, and gold. The smell is mostly pine with a faint hint of something floral and citrusy. I get a smooth, very full mouthfeel along with a huge bite of intense piney bitterness. The pine carries into the aftertaste. Bitter and piney are the two words to describe this beer, and you will love it or hate it depending on how you feel about those two words.

(Served in a tulip glass)
A- This beer pours a hazy orange body with a thick ring of white and a few bubbles trailing up the sides.

S- The green woody hops lead to some herbal hop aromas and a pineapple weed hint in the finish.

T- Nice malt sweetness is soon covered by a full green herbal flavor with some slight pungent hop finish. A slight sweetness in the finish leads to a slight bitterness with some unripe fruit hops.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz and no alcohol heat.

O- Nice full delicious hops flavor with a good malt sweetness to support it. The bitterness is gentle enough to make this quite drinkable by the pint.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Slightly hazy gold, good head.

Smell: Juicy citrus rind, hint of herbal.

Taste: Dry citrus bitterness, moderate to heavy bitterness. Starts to give a hint of garlic/herbal flavor.

Overall: An interesting take on the IPA from O'so. The garlic/herbal flavor starts to come through but stays in the background where it gives a nice counterpoint to the citrus bitterness. I normally don't like the hop that gives the garlic/onion flavor, but here it works.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

poured 12oz bottle into teku.

A - Dark rust orange with a solid 1.5 finger white head that leaves almost no ring behind. Some lacing on the glass.

S - This is borderline IIPA. Nice dank, floral pungent hops. Hints of citrus and big pine. This really showcases the dank hops and hides the malt.

T - Hit up front with bitter and dank hops. I'm not a fan of garlic onion flavor and don't really notice it as others have commented. I get more floral, earthy, and bitter hops with some pine and citrus mixed in. The malt is definitely there, but still hides behind the big hop profile. This could really pass as a IIPA.

M - Sticky and resinous with nice body and decent carbonation. Lingering bitterness on the finish.

O - Nice effort Oso. I enjoy the flavor of this dank IPA and usually stay away from these. Best to drink this one fresh. Too bad there is no date on the bottle.

Hop Whoopin pours a hazy golden color, with very small head. Their is a slightly floral. The taste has a sharp hoppyness, bitter and then finishes rather sweet. Nice subtle malty backbone. Nice carbonation, could be a bit dryer. Overall a nice IPA, a sweeter hoppy flavor does make it unique.
