Another interesting offering from Oskar Blues, from the can to the contents itself...

I wasn't too impressed with what came out of the can, it looked a tad weak to me (kind of something that reminds me of your prototypical beer) even though the foam was decent. The smell was too much of nothing - but it still was a bit fruity - that's about it. Mouthfeel was light, crisp, and astringent with a taste that was fruity - just wasn't blended well in my opinion. Maybe not the best OB in their line up but like the can says it ain't fugli...

Appearance: Clear golden with a white head.
Aroma: Fruity citrus. Orange grapefruit lemon light biscuit.
Taste: fruit forward, light bitterness, biscuit finish.
Mouth feel: Medium body with sufficient carbonation.
Over all a solid IPA. Worth buying.
Cheers

L: Pours a darker straw gold color with a medium white head and lot of lacing around the glass.

S: Lots of citrus fruit, some kiwi skin and fruit skin, some orange and lemon, a bit of malt underneath. Solid aroma, but not amazing.

T:. Lemon rind, some ripe citrus fruit, a bit of malt, feels a little watery, not a very strong taste for an IPA.

F: Medium body, creamy carbonation.

O: The taste is a bit lacking on this one.

A: Pours a yellow color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap that leaves good lacing

S: Lots of citrus and yuzu up front along with some of the ugli fruit. Some bready malt in there as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the citrus and yuzu and then picks up some bitterness and the ugli fruit mid-way. Bready malt helps to cut through a little. Finishes with lingering fruit

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid IPA with some weird fruit added. A bit perfumey and out there but it works

I had this for the first time out at that one bar in Nevada City, CA across from the Ol' Republic brewery. Great burgers. Giants bar.

Anyways, this pours a very light yellow, would almost make you think its an AAL given its light body and color, 1/3" white head on the top. Pops aromatic very nicely, seems like maybe Simcoe and Eukanot? Leans towards a more bitter green aroma that leans up against a citrus post of lime and grapefruit for the most part.

Taste is sizably bitter in the 60ibu range, but also packs more of the citrus flavor beyond just grapefruit, like I said in the aroma, it also leans on the green (lime, underripe citrus) side of the fruit. Could also be from some C hop bitterness that provides a little bit of tree like flavor and feeling to it. Super dry light body west coast style malt bill and ipa styleeee.

I really enjoyed this, the smaller abv makes it even more crushable. Between this and the Deviant Dales, OB makes some delightful ipas that don't get much credit in the milkshake/hazy can craze, but these are half the price from the originators of the return to cans.

Good IPA with unusual fruit aroma and flavor. Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint glass. Good size foamy head with good retention and thick lacing. Slightly hazy gold color. Good looking beer. Aroma is fruity, somewhat citrusy and aromatic but not the usual grapefruit/tangerine or even passionfruit that are in a lot of beers. Good unusual nose!!! Taste is a bit more subdued but still floral and citrusy with enough bitterness to be an IPA. Mouthfeel is crisp and mildly bitter, rich enough for the style. Lots of good IPAs out there, but this makes for a good summer beer with some bitterness. Nice offering from OB!!!

A: slight haze; deep gold in color; 1+ finger ivory head that receded to a wispy cap; nice lacing;

S: the grapefruitish/lime from the yuzu comes through as does a subtle orangish aroma from the ugli fruit;

T: the yuzu is front and center from start to finish; mild tartness throughout; mild bitterness at the end;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; moderately dry finish;

O: I had no idea what the aroma/flavor profile of this would be; turned out to be very interesting and enjoyable;
