Welcome to KS, Oskar Blues! 16 oz can dated 02/14/14 poured into a Brasserie de Silly tulip glass.

Appearance: A down the side pour produces two fingers of billowy off white head. Clear dark honey/copper colored body. Average head retention with nice lacing.

Aroma: Resiny, sticky, soapy hops. Some pithy, bitter, fruity hops in the middle. Sweet doughy malt backbone. Think cantaloupe and grapefruit pith.

Taste: Lots of resinous hops, this time very herbal (on occasion oniony) and citrus sweet. Big notes of sweet malts/caramel. Finishes with slightly spicy alcohol and pleasant cracker malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel with a slight abv kick towards the end.

Overall: An enjoyable hoppy amber ale. Nice dry hopping and caramel/sweet malts. While it’s quite hoppy and malty, there is good balance between the two, with both complementing the other. Could be an ideal camping beer.

Poured into my Free State IPA glass.

Look: Really dark ruby copper color. A beautiful thick cream colored head that recedes to a chunky film. Sheets of lacing.

Aroma: Nice woody notes of cedar and pine. Faint malts, black pepper.

Taste: A perfect blend of spicy cedar and hoppy pine with a slight sour fruit note.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, barely sticky.

Overall: A beer that can get you into trouble, high ABV with great taste and aroma.
