Very Good
The OswaldThe Oswald
Notes: Just a ridiculous amount of hops in this super hazy IPA! With 10 pounds of Rolled Oats and close to 5 pounds of hops per barrel, this NEIPA has incredible mouth feel and is an absolute fruit bomb in your mouth!

Cloudy yellow orange with a small bit of off white lacing. The nose is pineapple and grapefruit with dose of dried hay. Orange and grapefruit tastes that finish with bitter pine. A nice smooth mouthfeel. A pretty good beer with no real faults.

Canned 03/22/21.
An opaque light orange color, tiny light orange head, a bit of lace.
Tropical fruit aroma, dank.
Taste of grapefruit, orange, mango. Late pine.
Decent mouthfeel, not too hoppy.

Canned March 4th 2021. From Beer Drop.

Pours a hazy dark yellow, good long lasting head of foam.

Tropical and dank nose. Rather typical of the style.

Dank, tropical fruity, kinda bitter but not really. Again, typical of the style and nothing sets this apart from most of the style that I have had. Blindfolded, I could NOT tell which is which.

Good mouthfeel.

Yawn.

12oz can. Poured out a slightly cloudy, golden orange color with a small, off-white head of foam. It smelled fragrant with orange peel and grapefruit rind. Sweet tropical fruit taste with toasted caramel and a sharp, piney bitter bite.

Great clarity (or lack thereof) for the style and much much better on the nose than the single NEIPA called umm on draft. This one is dank and hoppy - i presume a ton of hops late in the boil and in the dry hop. Having said that, if you've had a NEIPA or east coast IPA from either the source or out east, it's not the finest hazy IPA one could have.
Still, a really good beer by some doggone nice dudes...
