Picked this one up at Green's in ATL. A bit pricey, but I hear it's good. Let's fnd out together, shall we?

As with the other OB cans I've had, the opening is uneventul. This one is not filled to the point of spewing on you at open, the way Old Chub seems to be.

Very high, active, cascading tan head as it hits my Grumpy Troll pint glass. The head falls rapidly, but seems to stop its progress just inder three fingers, leaving a thick, wet lace.. Liquid is a nice copper with just a touch of haze.

Smell is lovely- nice floral hops, quite similar to the strong smell of the hop pellets I sometimes used by in my homebrew days. There's an almost woody quality behnd it- but the dark wod of antique shops, not the light wood of my 12 string Stratocaster's neck.

Fairly sweet up front. THere's sme nice hop bitterness, deep and earthy in a sense. The only comparison I can for the overwhelming up front flavour is Cracker Jack. It's a dark, sweet flavour, with a slighty musty (but not unpleasant) aftertaste. If you ate CJ (heavy on the peanuts) with a good storng IPA, this is the flavour you'd get. Good , but unexpected.

Mouthfeel is big and hearty, wthout too much carbonation. Just a touch oily.

Quite drinkable, I think....but I doubt I'd have more than two at once. It's big and bold, but I think might wear on me somewhat quickly.

Be well

A: poured from a 16 oz can into a pint glass, red brown colored with a large foamy offwhite head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: heavy on hops, earth, pine, citrus , grapefruit, breast malt sweetness, tangy and mouth watering

T: pine bitterness up front, bitter at first with a lemon quality, sweetens to honey and slight raisin flavors, hint of heavy alcohols and esters

M: medium to full with good carbonation, slight alcohol presence

O: nice balance of bitter mixed with quite sweet maltiness
