look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Aggressive pour shows a slightly off-white and pourous head marked by big bubbles and some lacing. Nice clarity to the copper colored beer, not much carbonation visible. The smell is big and bold, piney and resiny in its hops. Mostly piney anyway, with a hint of citrus and a small malty character.

Interesting flavor to this one. Definitely hoppy and bitter, but there's almost an off flavor in there too. It's medicinal or soapy even. But that's only part of the beer. The rest is piney and sticky in it's hoppiness, with almost no hint of the 8.7 percent ABV. The finish is clean and easy, and pretty dry. Booziness comes out a little more in the aftertaste. The off-flavors become less and less noticeble as the beer warms up and your taste buds adjust the beer. In fact the more and more this warms up, the better the flavors meld together into an almost sweet hoppiness that balances out the bitterness nicely. Okay, now I feel better about this one. I wasn't used to any off flavors from Oskar Blues, so its good that I'm enjoying this more now. Overall, a good brew, one that fits nicely in with all of Oskar Blues other great beers.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A- Dark orange red with a finger of white head. Very clear and some good lacing

S- Caramel and earthy hops are what come through the most. I do get a little citrus with a sweetness. Has a dryness to it

T- A nice caramel malt backbone with some spicy and earthy hop characters; Very balanced beer. No alcohol at all really drinkable. Similar to arrogant bastard but smoother drinking but a little less complex maybe. Really good.

M- Light-Medium; Smooth and creamy texture, almost silky. really nice feel to this beer.

O- Really good stuff. Just super easy drinking beer that is really balanced and flavorful. I will defiantly be getting this again. I wish this was on tap around me because it would be a go to beer for sure.

Canned on 3-15-2011. Poured into tulip glass.

A - Pours a copper color with 1-2 fingers of off-white head. Nice retention and lacing.

S - Musty and hoppy. Resinous hop character and a thick sweetness.

T - Big and sticky, like they say. Sticky sweet, with a resinous hop profile. Malt sweetness is a great backbone to the hop flavors.

M - Sticky and medium bodied. Clean and smooth.

O - Overall very good. It's somewhere between an IPA and a Red Ale, as advertised. Nice, unique style of beer. Very easy to drink at 8.7%! Better than any Gordon Biersch crap.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A - Pours a nice soft mahogany color with about a half inch of head that leaves decent lacing.

S - Not super overwhelming but a beautiful fresh hop aroma, nice and piney. Hints of sweetness from the malt. Pruney/raisony smell as well

T - Fairly bitter, piney, pruney, a hint of sweetness, really the same as the smell. Minor alcohol taste, slightly dry finish

M - Wouldn't guess this was 8.7%, super drinkable and refreshing, nicely carbonated

Since Southern Star has gone to cans, I have been much more receptive to the beers in them. Well, I have reviewed most of Oskar Blues's beers already, but this one was not among them. I like that I know that this IPA won't be light-struck.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy dark amber color with a very small head of tannish bubbles during an aggressive pour. The head was gone seconds after the pour. There was no lacing left or anything after swirling the beer.

Aroma: The aroma was predominantly hoppy with American varieties being the dominant force, but there is also a solid malty backbone to this beer that you can tell is substantial even from the aroma. I can pick up a little of the alcohol in the nose, but it is mostly an interplay of the hops and caramel aspects of the malt and some spicy notes from the alcohol. The hops are surprisingly getting softer as the beer warms up some and they are leaning more toward the floral and slightly earthy side of the equation.

Taste: The flavor is very well balanced. There is probably more going on in the malt on the flavor than you would have thought from the aroma. The beer is still chock full o' hops, but the additions apparently are more late in the boil so that you get the resins and a little less bittering. The body is medium with the carbonation being quite low for what I would expect and like for this beer. This has nothing to do with the recipe, which I think is really good. The balance and the interaction with the water is the key, and this beer maintains that tight-rope act. Even though the alcohol is pretty high in this beer, it really isn't apparent except as some spice in the aroma and a subtle warming in the finish.

Opinion: Overall this is a really good beer. I wish that the carbonation had been a little higher, and this seems to be a trend lately with Oskar Blues beers IMO. Otherwise, there is a solid balance between the malt and hops and I like the overall finish. I am glad that I am drinking this beer, and will finish the other three no problem. I doubt that I will buy the cans again, but it would be nice to try this beer on tap sometime.

12 oz can, 8.7% abv, canned on 1/12/11. Hazy copper color. Off white head holds for a minute, then fades to a thin layer. Some nice patches of lace going on.

Heavy caramel malt in the nose. Lots of citrus and stone fruit. Fruity tones are pretty nice.

Caramel malt up front, with a bit of sweetness. Hop flavors seem to come from all sides, as I feel some spicy, citrusy, and slightly herbal notes. Lots of ripe grapefruit at the finish. Bitterness is solid, but not overwhelming.

Medium body, nice feel from the carbonation. There is some heat from the alcohol, but not bad. Pretty interesting beer.

Re-reviewing a fresh can courtesy of Bennettrox! Thanks man!

Pours a blood red amber coulour. Head was off white, 3 fingers and left the most gorgeous lacing.

HUGE notes of pine, resin, sticky sap, nutty, caramel malts, citrus fruits.

Big bitterness, juicy citrus, pine, resins, molasses, sticky sweet bread.

Full bodied, good carbonation, and yea, this is a sticky one!

Overall, just a fabulous imperial red! I think this is the Nugget Nectar killer!

Thanks Ryan for the freshie...the elder can was good still, but the new blew it away!.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a willi glass...A big thanks to brees6221 for this extra.

Pours a vibrant amber with massive tan head. The head is thick and pillow like. Lacing sticks all along the sides of the glass.

Smells of tropical fruits; mostly an infusion of pineapple and mango. Has some floral spiciness with a hint of toasted malt. I feel like I want to bite into it.

Tastes of toasted sweet malt that gives way to a strong spicy hop presence. Finishes bitter. Great bittersweet balance. No flavor is too dominating.

Mouthfeel is soft and smooth. The body is on the lighter side, but it works particularly well in this case. It's well carbonated and goes down easily. The 8.7% abv is well hidden and borders unnoticeable.

Overall this is an excellently balanced imperial red and another terrific offering by Oskar Blues. I would recommend this to anyone...I just wish I didn't have to go across the Illinois border to pick this up.

Really awesome beer, and if you're not familiar with Oskar Blues, don't let the can fool ya!

Pours a dark golden color, hazy and orange.

Smell is sugary with citrus, hoppy Scotch ale.

Taste is sweet, almost like eating a piece of pie. Lots of wonderful undertones. Sugary meets hops.

Very enjoyable.

A -Ruby red and clear. Nice generous foamy head.

S - Earthy and a touch floral. Not a ton else going on here.

T - Big old grapefruit face slap here with a follow up taste of alcohol. Finishes with the grapefruit again, but brings along it's friend "earthy" to say "so long" at the end of each pull.

M - Medium carbonation and fairly smooth. A little bit of aftertaste, but not a ton.

O - I liked this, and would have liked it even more if the alcohol taste could have stayed a bit hidden. Not too shabby though, as the alcohol taste wasn't enough to put me off.

Poured from a 12oz can into my Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Canned 2/17/11.

SAE/ECE amber, largely clear with a low off-white head. Decent lacing and retention.

Gentle grassy/piney aromatics with a hint of citrus and white pepper in the nose. Vague caramel as well.

Sweet and bitter flavor profile with touches of mint and eucalyptus. Pine and citrus zest come through along with a wave of bitterness into the earthy/dusty finish. Malty backbone throughout.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated, warming but sufficiently crisp.

A pretty good beer, though there are many better hoppy red ales (not to mention double IPAs in general) out there. Not the best value, but I'd still bring these camping any time.

Poured out of the can into a nonic pint glass. Can is dated May 6th 2011. G'morning to you too I say!

Out of the can she pours a real nice gold, but gives way to an off cream uniform foamy head of about three fingers. Body is a solid absolutely perfect crystal clear dark amber with no rising carbonation. Great color, and shown off wonderfully, I really like a good amber color and here we have one. Perhaps even more in the brown body territory. Minimal lacing that is spotty with some stick.

Malt thick and airy hop but small and tolerable. Pleasant the aromatics come out more after a few snips when you're resting. Kind of basic but very nice.

Taste is at first kind of a classic amber malt, but then this real surprise of flesh grapefruit in the middle. Swallow is so nicely bodied with a nice coating effect. Lingering hop mildness with just a hint but leaving malt flavor to dominate on the finish. Just great citrus in this. No bread or dough sense but no complaints either.

Wow very impressed and description of a hoppy amber meets its mark. I'd even say this is just a mild hint of hop but noticeable and incredibly balanced in it's feel and flavor. Solid brew from these guys. Not a knockout DIPA, not a knockout Amber, but for how it describes itself from the brewers it's flat out fantastic.

12oz can out of a 4 pack. Into the pint glass she went.

A - Nice coppery reddish hue with dimpled fluffy off-white head. Very clear and small bubbles

S - Sweet candy, lemon, grapefruit, pepper

T - A great mix of juicy tropical fruits (grapefruit, oranges, lemon) and a strong sweet malt backbone (caramel, toffee, sugar). Tasty beverage and slightly more of DIPA than a Red, in my opinion, good taste all the same

M - Medium, good carbonation, sticky, well hidden ABV

O - A good beer for a summer night. I will be drinking the rest straight outta the can, how I prefer ;)

Pours a pretty cleark dark ruby amber with a slight creamy white cap. The nose carries some simplistic rich caramel malts along with a light hoppy pine smell. The taste brings more of the same easy going and drinking, with little to no complexity. In the mouth it had nice carbonation though i found it to be a bit astrigent and the abv was noticeable. It is what it is i would much rather drink this beer at the higher abv to get a buzz going than something similar you could find at around 5-6% for comparable quality.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Well this beer is damn red just as the category suggests. Real clear dark amber with pretty yellow- white head.

Smell: Mostly a piney smell. Not much citrus at all but a little grapefruit. Decent amount of malt in play as you once again would expect with a imperial red.

Taste: Nice malty/ bitter flavor. You get a decent amount of hoppy flavor with a nice malt bill to keep the hops in check. Lots of malty sweetness yet still pretty bitter. The malt flavor is somewhat Carmel like followed with some grapefruit bitterness.

Mouthfeel: has a lot of carbonation but comes off somewhat syrupy in the mouthfeel. Definitely not thin in the mouth.

Overall: Pretty damn good imperial best when it's fresh. The fresh stuff is really good. Oscar Blues does date their cans so you know when it's fresh. This stuff is 7 weeks old but still pretty
Really good for a malty,bitter imperial red.

G knight Imperial Red Ale

A: light amber, ruby-like center, yellow gold at the edges, good carbonation with moderate lacing

S: sweet caramel notes, huge hoppy character for a "red ale" the nose seems to have an identity crisis with an Imperial IPA

T: Again, this beer does double duty by both wearing the spectacles of Clark Kent and the cape of an Imperial IPA. I like the penumbra that is created. On the Red ale side there's a great caramel profile, with honey notes, shortly after the IPA side comes forward with its declaration of peaches, mango, and some latent pine. It is as though you transported a tropical fruit farmer to the Canadian tundra and instructed him to chop down trees. He would be confused at first but naturally inclined towards the thrill of the harvest. In this instance, your wanting tastebuds.

M: This has a great mouthfeel that gives a balance for both the cloyingly sweet Red notes to balance out the grassy/lemon IPA notes. Minimal coating but with a mild chewiness.

D: The drinkability could go either way depending on your preference. On one side, the hop notes might pull and early shutdown of your olfactory and disallow production on the line. Other people might feel that the sweetnotes make each drink more desired and they serve as scab workers. Overall I feel this is a good, underrated beer, it is no Pliny, it is no Shark attack, but it is a strange hybrid.

Narrative: Guillermo shivered and watched his breath cascade out in lingering mist. Ecuador never seemed so far away as he looked out upon the expanse of the taiga belt. Just north he could see frozen scrubbrush and south he saw his task at hand: lumbering. Mile after mile of looming coniferous enemies, waited to be felled. His members only jacket provided minimal warmth and made him long for the oppressive heat during the days that he would harvest palm hearts. "GUILLERMO! MAN THE FELLERBUNCHER AND START WORKING ON THE LICHEN AREAS!" He knew that he was a competent lumberjack, but he longed for his lumber jill, Ysidra, left behind in his home land. He would serve amiably in either profession, but he could not help but feel a bit out of place under the watchful eye of the demanding Canadian foreman. At his core, he was Guillermo, a wonderous man capable of felling Palm and Gymnosperm alike.

A- Pours a glowing orange blossom honey amber with a tangerine tinted head. Nice lacong drips down the glass as the head fades away. Moderate carbonation. Very nice!

S- Grapefruit dipped in honey and caramel. Nice piney hop notes. Fresh cut peaches, mango, lemon drop candy and x-mas trees! Beautiful malty sweetness on the nose that blends perfectly with the citrusy hops!

T- Very malt forward... sweet candy corn, caramel, bitter lemon, tangerine peel, and notes of floral pine and rosemary.

M- Definately sweet on the tongue, but the bitter citrus/pine taste really evens things out. Niether dominates... they just blend and dance nicely together. Sweet caramel and pine both stick to your gums. Alcohol a bit present, but certainly not overwhelming.

O- I guess this is a IIPA... just a little bit out of bounds. Like calling the White Stripes a Blues band... it's kinda there, but goes off on some other kind of wonderful tangent! Definately worth trying if you haven't.

Poured into a Hair of the Dog tulip on 5/28/11.

Pours a dark golden amber with hues of orange and yellow on the edges. A finger of frothy white head dissipates leaving a frosty white coating of tiny bubbles on the glass. Great color and head.

Smells of fruity floral hops and a slight citrus hit as well. Lots of malt sweetness to this brew and done very nice. You don't usually get this much sweetness out of a beer of this style but this one does very well.

Taste is floral, citrus, and grass, followed by a sweet malt heaviness that coats the pallet shortly after. Again lots of sweetness but is chewy and tasty.

Mouthfeel is medium to heavy. A slight taste of booze but not bad. Hops resin leaves an earthy taste on the pallet.

Overall this is a good beer. It has its short comings but good. Can't say much more then that.

Ok so I went to a local beer tasting and discovered this brewery. I really like what they stand for. It was a bit difficult for my mind to get around the whole good beer in a can thing but once I tasted it I was convined that this is the way to go.

S: From a can of course...into a tunic pint glass.

A: A deep rich amber/brown with noticable haziness. Small head with substantial lacing.

S: A nose pleaser. A sweet aroma with distinct hoppy and malt undertones.

T: Very nice! A strong hoppy bite up front, but not over the top for its IBU'S! Parallel to the nose...sweet malty middle notes with a suprisingly clean and sweet finish.

M: Very smooth.

O: For sure a great beer!

Purchased as a can single from Total Wine in Richmond, VA - poured into dfh snifter

Pours a perfect burnt amber ruby with a dense whippy looking head that forms a perfect 1" with great lacing. This is a beautiful beer. Smells awesome, like a nugget nectar but a bit tamer on the hops. Smells sweet but also has that hop aroma, it's great. Taste follows, and for a 8.7 beer this is soooo smooth and easy to drink. The mouthfeel is right on, smooth with little hits from the carb and hop bitter.

Overall - this is my fav OB beer so far probably and I've had ten fidy

i've waited a while to review this one, had to do it fresh because thats where this beer should be consumed otherwise its an absolute malt bomb...anyway here we go. G'Knight can o'bliss satisfya, poured into a pint glass because i think this beer is most at home in one, pours a deep red/amber color that brings a white head that shows the sticky icky that we love, GAH DAMNIT LAACCCCINNNG

A - big citrusy hop aroma with caramel malts abundant, hints of mango ill go with as the citrus...sweetness fills the nose

T - couldn't wait to get done with the look and aroma so i could get to taste on this one....FUCK YES, follows the nose well, malty presence here that is not in a lot of brews, piney touches with some grapefruit. majority is a good citrus hop not a big bitterness mostly a citrus note...the brew is big people, huge malt presence, big hops, the alcohol is more subtle than i usually remember....but anyway this beer makes me want to walk into a BMC bar shirtless with a chrome .45 desert eagle with "HATER" in cursive down the barrel, already hot from droppin mofo's in the parking lot ready to crush bodies...me and g'knight work well together SON!

M - medium body, light carbonation creamy mouthfeel, i think this is what im the biggest fan of on this one... little heat. personally i could pound these like there is no tomorrow. sticky

O - one of my favorites no doubt, i wish there was a more complex flavor going on but i still love it for what it is...if this was not distributed to where i am i would trade for it, just sayin...DRINK IT NERDS AND RUN FOR THE FENCE

Finally got around to trying this.

A-Pours a slightly hazy ruby red grapefruit color. The beer is deep yet radiant. My fairly aggressive pour creates a big, fluffy off-white creamy head. The cap retains very well and leaves awesome lacing. Overall, this beer looks very delicious. Completely passes the eye test.

S-Fairly heavy nose too. Sugar crusted grapefruit. A bunch of juicy hoppiness in the nose. But, the nose might actually be more malty than hoppy. The beer smells quite sweet. The hops mingle and almost morph together with the malt. I keep thinking of grapefruit flavored gummy candy (which is caked in sugar).

T-The flavor is very individual. One of the maltier DIPAs I have ever tried. The caramel maltiness is rich and evident. A pretty assertive dose of hops do help to try and balance out this brew. Usually when a DIPA or an IPA is very malty, I am not a big fan. Yet, this beer seems to do the malt-foward DIPA very well. I would not be opposed to an extra 'oomph' of hops, but this is pretty nice as is.

M-One of the stickiest, most resinous feels I have come across. The carbonation is an afterthought because all I can pay attention to is the texture of the brew.

O/D-Overall, this is worth a try. Where I live a 4-pack of this is far too expensive. However, this beer does malty very well The alcohol is masked amazingly. This by no means steers me away from hop-forward brews (which I love the most) but it is an interesting take on the style. One word to describe this beer: rich.

Thanks to lnashsig for sending me this one!

A: Poured into my DFH signature glass. Pours a slightly hazy ruby/red color with two finger, very foamy head, slightly off-white in color. The head reduced to about one finger in height and stayed that way. Some very nice lacing was left behind. Small carbonation bubbles released from the bottom.

S: A good amount of hops upfront, some nice floral aromas, and a good mix of both pine and some light citrus - grapefruit. Underneath there is some caramel and a little bit of doughy malt.

T: On the sweeter side, not overly hoppy and bitter like some double IPAs, but pretty well balanced. Light citrus flavors, some grapefruit and pineapple. It is a bit sweeter than most in the style.

M: Medium to full bodied with solid carbonation. Slightly bitter finish, but a really light bitterness.

O: A really easy drinking DIPA. Might be lacking a hop bite for what I like in the style, but it is really east drinking and very solid. Love a good beer in a can.

Poured from a can (of course!) into a snifter for a "good times" experience.

Smells of delicious hops, with a pleasant heaviness, and a citrus note that has more orange than traditional grapefruit.

Tastes of caramel-covered hops. A true red ipa that has great hops with a complexity above earthiness or dimple bitterness.

Mouthfeel is thick and heavy on the tongue. Long-lasting flavor and a non-cloying sweetness.

Overall this is one of my favorites... In the top 5 for me. I love IPAS with something more and this truly delivers. One if the great beers that every hop head should try at least once.

Poured from 12 oz can into a Pilsner glass

A: Pours a silky smooth dark amber/red with about a finger sized head that dissipates quickly. Pretty good lacing.

S: Really clean fresh fruity piney scent. Lots of malt. Lots of floral. really nice

T: Very slight hoppy bite to a crisp malty fruity type taste. Very refreshing. Good balance of all flavor.

M: It's silky smooth with good carbonation...but not too much. Nice and full bodied...fairly thick in feel.

O: This is a great red! Amazingly drinkable. It's clean and crisp with that slight hint of hint of hop. I was very impressed.
