4.8/5 rDev +26.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75
poured from a 12oz. can into a DFH spiegelau. canned about 1.5 months ago
appearance: pours a golden copper with a finger and a half head of white creamy, creamy foam. tiny bubbles come from underneath. as the brew goes down a frothy 1/8 finger head remains on top.
smell: smells of caramel and beer bread hit hardest, then citrus hops, with a small amout of spiciness and a very pinch of bananna.
taste: hit with all the malts at first. caramel and some toast first, rye is in there if youre really looking for it. then a good deal of bitterness follows, alot of floral and citrus hops and that pinch of spice comes out. there is a slight amount of booze in the taste but not enough to be too offensive
mouthfeel: this is one of the heavier ipas. to me it feels like murphys oil soap with bubbles (which is a good thing) love the way this feels on the mouth.
overall: i am very surprised this is not in the 90s thwn it comes to ratings. this can satisfy both hopheads and those who enjoy a "balanced" beer. the 3 different malts really give this beer some character and the hops can equally balance them. id highly recomend this brew to anyone who loves ipas, imperials, or barleywines. truly original. oskar blues never disappoints.

Gubna pours a slightly hazy gold amber with a thin head. The aroma is sweet with pungent and fruity hops as well as a nice fruity orange character. The aroma is a bit mild, but the flavor makes up for it. Sweet malt mixes with fruity citrusy and herbal hops. There is an almost tea like quality to the hops and a deep resiny bitterness follows as the big malty sweetness rides through the finish. The alcohol is well hidden, and I don't get any of the cat piss character that some people complain about with Summit. If I could get this one locally it would be in my regular rotation.

3.59/5 rDev -5.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A- Completely clouded orange copper body with a small off white head.
A- Malty earthy aroma. Slight citrus notes.
T- Smooth sweet taste with an ever present bitterness and a noticeable alcohol throughout. Slight metallic hit in the aftertaste.
M- Medium-heavy body and moderate cabonation.
D- Enjoyable, but not my favorite DIPA. Surprisingly easy drinking for a 10% DIPA. Lacking a bit in the hop flavor compared to others. The bitterness isn't all that intense either.
