Pours a semi hazy red with an off white head. Smells of caramel, malt, and hops. Tastes of non bitter hops, sweet malt, and caramel. Medium creamy body and carbonation. Overall a very good red IPA.

Really nice balanc between caramel and grapefruit. Very citrusy. Nice mouthfeel with a good carbonation. No booziness. Nice amber look with a two fingers head

This is a well known beer from one of my favorite brewers; I have no idea why I am only reviewing it formally now. Huge head and a nose loaded with spicy and medicinal hops. Strong start. Awesome lace forming too.

The taste is a little more reserved than I expected, especially for the octane. It still delivers caramel and toffee notes chased hard by citrus and pine. Really smooth in texture and finish; almost like a cream ale or schwarzbier. Really drinkable, almost scarily so for the style. Another outstanding effort from Oskar Blues.

Poured a dark, dark red with a persistent and large head which mostly dissipated about a minute and a half after the pour
Smells sweet and hoppy, a solid but not overpowering smell
The taste of the malt is mainly sweet and the hops are piney, both flavors are very strong and accented with a mild burn of alcohol in this nearly 9% brew,
This ale is exceptional, would recommend if you like strong sh**
