A: Good clarity, a nice golden amber color with about 1.5 fingers of fluffy white head. A lot of action from some tiny bubbles. Good retention and lacing. Slightly rocky.

S: Bright floral and citrus hop aromas. This is followed by a sweet malt (caramel) breadiness. Some grassiness in the finish. It's really, really inviting.

T: A nice citrus hits me first, almost a twinge of acidity. It's really bright right off the bat. The malts balance out nicely with some nice caramel body. This finish is just lightly bitter. Just at the level I desire in a pale.

M: Lightly astringent, good body and carbonation.

O: This is a beautiful beer. Perhaps too hoppy for some as an APA but this is always my first choice for a summer bbq beer. Bright and hoppy, but not too aggressive. Also the can rocks. Keep it up OB

Served in a tumbler at Wild Wings Cafe. From notes. Reviewed 5 July 2011.

A: A finger of tight white head. Coppery-clear. Faint bubbles. Pretty much what I expected.

S: Very fruity! Grapefruit juice (from concentrate). Sweet, bready malts, nice hops. I really like it.

T: A pretty nice pale ale. Malty-round with a hoppy-bitter finish. Not obviously excellent, but a superlative example of the style.

M: Malty and robust with a tad of drying hops. I like it.

O: One of the better Pale Ales I've ever consumed. Drinkable, enjoyable, and likely to find wide appeal. Recommended; will definitely drink again.

oskar blues flagship brew. now widely proliferated this beer pours a thick amber honey color with a one inch white head that lasts. smells more like an ipa than a pale ale, but has a defined malt strength that i guess qualifies it. taste is quite hoppy too, crisp and satisfying. has a pine and cut grass earthiness to it. mouthfeel is pleasant and smooth, but the heavier body can be filling. this is a versatile beer and a good every day drinker, but i find it works particularly well with spicy foods of the southwest.
