A: Amber color with an opacity, head this cream colored that dissipates quickly.

S: Mostly malt with a mild hop overtone

M: Mild "thickness" over the mid-palate that lingers nicely.

O: Good example of an APA, no complaints

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Slightly cloudy pale body with off-white low head. Nice retention and lacing.

S - Lemon, grapefruit, and malts

T - Incredible citrus hops upfront, so refreshing. Deep earthy malts rush in and an aftertaste leaving behind a nice taste of alcohol.

M - Medium/light body, moderate bubbly carbonation.

O - This is a fantastically drinkable beer. The body, carbonation, and clean hop flavor never get old. Oskar Blues can do no wrong!

3.73/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Cloudy golden color. Nice carbonation and decent head retention.

Smell: Grainy, yeasty aroma. For the home brewers out there it smells exactly like wort to me.

Taste: Sweet, malty start with a hoppy finish. I may be crazy (or brewed too many beers) but it tastes a lot like wort smells, at least to me.

Mouthfeel: Nicely balanced carbonation with a bit of thickness.

Overall: A very unexpected, different tasting ale. Not bad, but I'm not sure it's one I'd drink often...
