Served from a can into a room temp pint glass. Pours a golden caramel color with a frothy head. Strong nose of black pepper and sweet onion. Taste is very forward with floral and earthy characteristics. Bitterness is noticeable but doesn't linger. Overall this is a good ipa, but the sweet onion is overpowering

Dales is my daily go-to beer, and I am a fan of Oskar, so this review will be high.

The increased ABV and body over Dales turns up the sweetness, and mouth feel.
It's a tie with Dales they are two different brews, cousins, but depending on your mood each could be on top at a given moment.

A: Darker, more haze, more rocky head, like cotton candy, followed by even stickier lace. Near perfect.
S: Fruit, grass, wet leaves, herbs, hemp, pine, honey wrap around your senses as you sniff this.
Like smoking weed.
T: Follows the smell, a bit sweeter than Dales. A nice long flavor arc: all of the above, and a cleansing, tingly finish.
MF: Body, weight, all the above, and long long finish. Not a first of the night beer. A great last of the night beer. Super-charged balance of malt and hops.

A must try, I'd like to keep one always around.
