4.45/5  rDev +14.1%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Brown, with a hint of amber, or orange. The head is off-white, and soapy on the sides and frothy on the top.

Aroma - Sweet, sour gummy worms, floral and piney hops. Maybe some citrus. There is a little hint of malt in the background.

Taste - Piney, resiny hops, some grapefruit citrus, caramel, and a hint of breadiness to balance the hops.

Mouthfeel - Medium, lightly carbonated.

Overall - It's semi-dry, highly drinkable, delicious, and well-balanced.

Serving type: can

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

rich orange amber pour with a light cream tan head about a pinky thick.
smells of floral notes and citrus, fresh caramel.
tastes mostly of caramel, also has plenty of hop character. the citrus and piney tastes come second and third but are definitely strong.
the mouth feel is good, good carbonation, just an an aftertaste that is very slightly off.
Overall this is a great beer. very drinkable and love that its canned, great beer to bring to a party or a friends to share while watching the game.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance is copper with a finger of head that does not linger very long. Mild fresh hop nose is passable, but not impressive. The malt profile is more reminiscent of and ESB than an APA. The finish is thin and flat. My first taste of an Oskar Blues offering - kind of a bummer

Serving type: on-tap

Canned middle of January 2012. Poured into tulip.

A- Crystal clear amber pour with three fingers of soapy, sticky off white head that clings to the glass and won't let go.

S- A nice mix between citrus and floral hop aromas. There is a slight pepper spice to it mixed with a touch of pine and strawberries.

T- Thirst quenching pale ale at it's finest. Orange and mango with a touch of strawberries. There is a nice cookie sweetness to it to help round everything out.

M- Little heavier than light bodied. Good carbonation, good feel to it. Slightly chewy with a dry finish.

O- I've walked past this beer many many times and finally decided to grab one. I wish I bought more, this is a really great beer.
