Wow, a nice surprise out of the can. Opaque golden orange appearance in the glass, albeit minimal head and quickly dissipating lacing, notwithstanding ample tiny bubbles. Great smell of pine, grapefruit, pineapple resin on the nose. Very sweet, floral, tropical, orange zest fruit on the front end if the palate, with smooth and evenly balanced malt nuance throughout the finish. Reminds me a little of Ballast Point Sculpin, which I really like. Similar profiles. Will gladly buy this one many times over. An excellent top tier DIPA, in my book.

Can dated October 8, 2013, poured into snifter.
A: Nice golden-amber color that's just a bit fuzzy. Foamy finger of head, lacing coats the glass on the beer's way down.
S: Big pine, citrus, grapefruit aromas; you can tell this one's sticky from how dense they are. Bready malt backbone.
T: Hops and malts seem pretty balanced on this one; reminds me of a lot of "imperial reds" that I've had (excepting G'Knight actually, which I think is much more flavorful than this). Pine/citrus hops seem to really come out on the finish, which actually might be more intense than most of what comes before it.
M: Medium-bodied, a little creamy, sticky while still drying up on the finish. Good stuff.
O: This is a solid beer even if it's not one of my favorites by Oskar Blues, but if OB is a mainstay in your fridge, it might be nice to alternate this in every once in a while.
