My coworker told me I had to try this IIPA and since I've enjoyed everything else OB has offered, I thought it would be a no-brainer. Wow, what a shock! It smells like a ripe grapefruit and whets the tastebuds with the typical IIPA aromas. Let's taste it! What??? Onions and garlic! Wild! Grapefruit, hoppy spice, and a savory onion/garlic follow-through. Nothing like it. I would recommend enjoying this IIPA with a tasty burger and an order of frings... Awesome combination.

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.
