3.86/5 rDev -4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Canned 2/14 Pouring some into a snifter for look and aroma, taste is from the can
Pours a vibrant golden orange with a finger of slightly tan foam that's died down sorta quick. Good lacing with a moderate carbonation stemming from the center. Good clarity, this is a fun one to look at
Smells of pretty earthy and floral hops backed with some pine and a bit of tangerine and grapefruit, not as fruity as most ipas out there. A sweet caramel malt holds it together and finishes with a bit of alcohol
Taste isn't quite on par with the nose but translates roughly the same. Big earthy hops with strong floral notes, finishing with just a little citrus. The caramel in the malt is a bit sweeter than in the aroma and the alcohol is definitely more present
Feel is a medium body with a bit of a wet finish. Good bitterness, alcohol present but still drinks well
Overall a pretty good beer. Glad to have Oscar Blues back in Nevada

Born on date : 4/24/14 - Enjoyed 7/27/14
A: Honey colored with 1 finger of white head. The head settles relatively quickly. The can includes a very obvious, and readable, born on date on the bottom!
S: Piney and floral. There are mild hints of citrus. As it warmed I got more grassy smells.
T: Sweet on the front of the tongue. The finish is piney and grassy with just a hint of bitter.
M: Smooth and easy to drink. The carbonation is low.
O: Great overall beer. All of the parts play well together. Only a slight hint of the 8% ABV. This beer is complex and has lots of flavors going on. Also the bitterness is kept in check - which I like.
