Thanks to hoppedup for this can!
Appearance: Brown clear beer, with a nice retentive tan head.
Aroma: The hops are mostly citrusy, but still pleasantly piney. The sweet malt smells blend nicely with the hops. This beer wants to be tasted badly.
Taste: The first taste of this beer is pretty damned hoppy. Hoppier and piney-er than expected from the mightly hoppy aroma. After a couple more tastes, it seems to be a bit more balanced than I originally thought. The bitterness seems to linger throughout the taste, but as the beer warms, it seems that this one is actually somewhat balanced. This one is not for someone who doesn't like piney hops, but it's certainly not overpowering.
Notes: This is another Oskar Blues beer that hides it's alcohol content quite well. 9.2% is not what I would have expected from the flavors. The dryness on the finish is quite pleasant and it makes this a beer that is very easy to drink.

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
