Awhile back, we had a few people over for a barbecue and I wanted some canned offerings to drink while I was cooking. Oskar Blues had just put this beer out and I was really interested to try it. The can also looked a bit different from their other offerings. Let’s see how it went.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A Metamodern IPA conceived of hand selected hops from down under. Malt barley and red wheat combine to create a clean malt backbone with foolproof flavor and mouthfeel to support the main act of Enigma, Vic Secret, Ella, Topaz and Galaxy hops. The hops strum juicy and sweet aromas with headline notes of passion fruit, raspberries, pineapple and citrus. This straight-up strain is Oskar Blues IPA (6.43% ABV). To each their own til we go home.”
Random: Our one kitten loves to hunt and play and the other one just wants to snuggle.
This brew poured with a two and a half finger white, fluffy head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a clear, straw yellow with moderate carbonation. The aroma had a lot of mango, pineapple and passionfruit. It had a touch of pine resin. The taste had a lot of tropical fruits as well and transitioned into pine resin. There was no malt to speak of. The body was light with moderate carbonation. The finish was quick with tropical fruit. This beer was $1.83 a can ($.15). It had nice flavor and went down easily. I would have it again.
