Purchased at High Spirits in Providence, RI. Poured from 16oz can into standard pint glass.

Pours slightly cloudy bronze/orange/amber combo. 2 finger head.

Smells of hops, citrus, grapefruit up front. Def has some maltiness.

Tastes continues with hops, resin. Has a malty sweetness. You get that piney/fresh cut grass flavor which I love in an IPA.

Nice carbontion and smooth for a DIPA. Def not a standard IPA. Really liked this and its earthy herbal hoppiness. One downside is the price. I get an employee discount but a four pack runs 13.85 for 16oz cans retail. They are tall boys but the price point is still a little off as I think all Oskar Blues products are. As a store we only received 1 case so I had to pull the trigger. Might try and grab one more just to have.

a beautiful clear orange pour with 2 fingers of off white head and ridiculous amounts of lacing. soapy, pine, honey, caramel, flowery hops.
tastes bitter up front with a harsh alcohol taste right away backed by a spicy garlic flavor. hints of honey and tree bark.
medium body with a heavy creamy feel.
this is an excellent example of a dipa and hard to believe it came in a can! very "up in yo face" but delicious. now i wanna go listen to curtis plum..

Pours a slightly cloudy, dark golden copper color with bright orange edges and a one finger white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.  

Earthy, grassy aroma that's countered by sweetness from citrus/tropical fruit and caramel malt.  Resinous with some grassy pine along with grapefruit, orange peel and pineapple.  Malt is more prominent than expected but adds sweet hints of caramel and toffee.

On the fuller end of medium bodied with a complex hop character balanced by malt sweetness.  Blast of earthy hops up front that provide a nice dry bitterness that is quickly checked by citrus and tropical fruit sweetness.  Hints of grapefruit, orange peel and mango with caramel malt, toffee and subtle nutiness adding sweetness for balance.  Subtle biscuit/graham cracker presence with a dry finish.  Well balanced and easy drinking but the hops still dominate.

pint can in SNS dated 5/23

A: Auburn to ruby red, light toffee-caramel head on top, 2 fingers. fairly opaque, nice carb awesome lacing

S: huge pineapple, then grapefruit, pine, peach, mango, lemon zest, sweet caramel malt, delicious

T: Wave after wave of pineapple, peach, mango, citrus, pine, then a huge hit of bitterness and then a sweet caramel malt and that "dales" taste to soothe that away. wow.

M: Medium bodied, right for the style, so freakin drinkable though for 8%.

O: So glad I pulled the trigger on this, if I see this again, I'll be buying it again
