"This one tastes like the cow got into a bunch of onions"...er, I mean brewer. I LOVE Oskar Blues' offerings, with Ten Fidy being in my top 10 faves of all time, so I was extremely excited to try this one out. Unfortunately, it let me down in a big way.
Pours a deep amber color with rocky white head. The aroma is sweet and citrusy, with some slight medicinal phenolics. The biggest shock is in the taste - big, mouth-coating malt sweetness followed by vidalia onions from the Summit hops. A little spice and pine as well, and definitely some heat from the alcohol. The mouthfeel is dense, and overbearing. I really can't get past the taste of onions and malty sweetness.
I know some people are really digging this beer, but I think Oskar Blues could've benefitted from diversifying their hops and toning down the residual sugar from the malt bill.

can into a pint glass. Canned 4/28/14, so less than 3 months old. Alright, lets do this.
Looks pretty decent, hazy yellow, lite carbonation. small 1/2 inch white head which persisted. light but interesting lacing.
Almost nothing at all on the nose, some sweet malts.
What the freak? Very sweet, and very boozy. I did get some faint sweetness on the nose, but no boozy smell at all. Almost no hops at first, but then did get some bitterness along the edge of the tongue. Tongue itself coated with sweetness, and an alcohol burn in the back of the throat. Now this was not exactly unpleasant, but not expected from a less than 3 month old DIPA. 10%abv very obvious.
Mouth was around medium, and a little syrupy.
Was pretty disapointed in this. The taste I got, while not unpleasant, was not what I was expecting.
