Appearance: Slightly hazy gold, good head.

Smell: Juicy citrus rind, hint of herbal.

Taste: Dry citrus bitterness, moderate to heavy bitterness. Starts to give a hint of garlic/herbal flavor.

Overall: An interesting take on the IPA from O'so. The garlic/herbal flavor starts to come through but stays in the background where it gives a nice counterpoint to the citrus bitterness. I normally don't like the hop that gives the garlic/onion flavor, but here it works.

poured 12oz bottle into teku.

A - Dark rust orange with a solid 1.5 finger white head that leaves almost no ring behind. Some lacing on the glass.

S - This is borderline IIPA. Nice dank, floral pungent hops. Hints of citrus and big pine. This really showcases the dank hops and hides the malt.

T - Hit up front with bitter and dank hops. I'm not a fan of garlic onion flavor and don't really notice it as others have commented. I get more floral, earthy, and bitter hops with some pine and citrus mixed in. The malt is definitely there, but still hides behind the big hop profile. This could really pass as a IIPA.

M - Sticky and resinous with nice body and decent carbonation. Lingering bitterness on the finish.

O - Nice effort Oso. I enjoy the flavor of this dank IPA and usually stay away from these. Best to drink this one fresh. Too bad there is no date on the bottle.

Hop Whoopin pours a hazy golden color, with very small head. Their is a slightly floral. The taste has a sharp hoppyness, bitter and then finishes rather sweet. Nice subtle malty backbone. Nice carbonation, could be a bit dryer. Overall a nice IPA, a sweeter hoppy flavor does make it unique.

Excellent IPA. Big IBU yet the mouth feel was what I would call tangy, very drinkable stuff well crafted. A generous amount of lasting head, not foaming up but ready set to drink. A little cloudy golden. Mango, grapefruit, resiny. Bottle from 20 West Wine and Spirits.

Appearance: Can't ask for a better looking IPA. Bright amber with a little haze from yeast sediment. Medium white head that lingers.

Smell: Lots of citrus aromas, most notably grapefruit. Also some sweetness from the malt. Really clean. The aromas meld really well. Almost verging on fruity.

Taste: Tastes much like it smells. Up front citrus with tangerine and grapefruit. Bitterness coats the mouth throughout with a little bitterness toward the back of the mouth. A little different than other IPAs in that respect. A little piney and resiny as well.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and without any noticeable abrasive or astringent notes. Surprisingly easy to drink for a malty IPA.

Overall: Very tasty in my opinion. As a single malt and single hop beer (S.M.A.S.H.), I'm impressed by the balance they were able to attain. But it works really well with the hops they used (Summit apparently) as it's not overwhelmed by citrus. I'd say it rivals some of the West Coast IPAs that everyone loves (I'd say it could easily go toe to toe with anything Lagunitas does). Highly recommended!

12oz bottle.

Pour hazy copper with a half inch head of white. A partial skim coat and some elongated dots of lacing for the duration.

Aromatics lead off with citrus and pine resins. Grapefruit, tangerine, and tropical fruits aplenty.

Medium bodied with a crisp mouthfeel.

Pungent, resinous hops start the palate. Quite piney with apricots, mango, and tangerine zest. Light malt to balance on medium bitterness. Dry and tropical in nature.

Finishes with a drying bitterness under plenty of pine and tropical fruit.

Really nice beer, although the nose is a bit subdued. The hops on the palate though are right on and quite tasty.
