This was served in a 19 ounce can, believe it or not. I poured it into a pint glass and it made a decent head. It is reasonably hopped, but not as hop heavy as many IPAs (or APAs for that matter). I would buy it again, especially if I can find that extra large can.

All american pale ale. Not much else to say other then if you don't like it at first, give it a second chance. If you still don't like it after that .. Clearly your taste buds can't handle the bitter bomb.

This beer is my woman and I's session beer. First time I had it I wasn't a fan but as I got more and more, I kept coming back. This ain't your average pale ale. It's bong bong. I'll drink this anytime, anywhere. If you haven't got this yet and you like hops you are missing out on life. Oskar blues never let's down with their 3d beers in a can. Buy it, shotgun one, enjoy.

From a can into an imperial pint
A: Light bright copper, clear, 1 finger creamy off-white head
S: caramel, pale malt, then I'm getting Centennial-like hoppiness, some melon and earthy notes.
T: good stuff. The pale bready malts invite you in, then the hoppy bitterness powers up. Lots to work with here: sure, a little citrus and juiciness, but more earthy and dirty and sharp notes to me, and even a little mintiness on the end.
M: bitter, dry on the finish, but also some alcohol burn.

Overall: I enjoyed this a lot. Tasting blind, there's no way I would know it was a pale instead of an IPA...love those Centennial hops. Some things in common with hoppy ambers, even, including a little rough edge. Glad these guys started distributing to MN last summer! Very nice addition.

Pours with a two fingers of mottle, white head. Roasted malt and citrus notes. Starts sweet and finishes bitter. Very drinkable.
