Poured from a can into a pint glass
Disclaimer: This can survived a 3 day backpacking trip.
A. Aggressive pour yields a one finger white head that doesn't hang around long. (Maybe it was beat up too much in the excursion.) Some lacing. Nice carbonation rising from the bottom. Cloudy and light copper in color.
S: Predominately hops. Hops are floral and citrus. Balanced out with some sweet malt aroma.
T: Hops provide a citrus rind bitterness balanced well with a toasted, caramel malts. Mild lingering bitterness. The hops presence not overpowering.
M: Medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Somewhat oily in the finish. Easy to drink and quite refreshing.
O: One of my favorite American pale ales. It is easy to drink despite its higher ABV. Plus they were one of the first craft breweries to do the can. I love cans; they are perfect for day hikes and fishing trips. This beer fits the bill perfectly for those adventures (as do many other Oskar Blues beers). The fact that this beer is in a can increases my overall rating for this beer.

COD 4/21/14. Pours a clear almost medium amber with a nice dark ruby tint. Tremendous head with excellent lacing and retention. Very nice nose of tropical citrus hops over a pine and light caramel background. Medium body with an almost slick texture. Above average carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is complex and well balanced. It begins with a blend of hop flavors found in the nose, then rapidly flows to a pine focused hop bitterness over a slightly tart note. As the bitterness fades, a light caramel sweetness emerges in the effervescent finish. A tart pine bitterness with hints of spice lingers.
