a clean copper/amber pour with 2 fingers of bright white detergent-like head, giving off lots of nice lacing. lots of aromatic hops.. grassy, piney, citrusy. getting a whiff of smoked malt, which blends in quite nicely! the flavor is mindnumbingly excellent. a nice smoked flavor, much like band aids.. but nothing overwhelming. a nice bitterness from the hops blends in perfectly with the sweetness of the grain bill. this is by far the best tasting rauch style beer i've ever had. it's like you taste the smoky flavors and you're smelling the hops as you're drinking it, then you put down the glass and the hops are the main thing in your palate. medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation - a nice sticky mouthfeel.

overall, this is an excellent collaboration from ska / oskar blues. an excellent beer for its style. and an excellent beer overall. throw in a nifty designed can, and you have yourself a winner.

A smoked double IPA? Sign me up.

This pours a hazy straw-orange with cottony clouds.

Smoke and a candied orange hop compete in the aroma for attention.

The flavor hits with a hoppy orange preserve piney punch, followed by a touch of campfire smoke. As a concept it’s one I’d like to see more of.
