Beer Review #102
Oskar Blues- Longmont, CO
Gubna 10% abv
Style: Imperial India Pale Ale
The pour is slightly amber, crystal clear brass color. Off white head the dissipated quickly leaving sticky lace down the glass. Lots of bubbles rising.
The nose is super floral, bitter and sour grapefruit, passionfruit and/or mango (tropical fruits), caramel, and toast.
On the palate its very dense, sticky and oily. Lingers in your mouth after a sip. Full in body but a healthy amount of carbonation making it super smooth and drinkable. Sharp pine bitterness with a toasty malt undertone, sweetness comes in as well as more fruity, citrus, and floral hop notes. Grapefruit, lemongrass, orange blossom, mango, and there’s another floral note blending in i wanna say lavender or rose water but its neither, or both. Something in-between.
Ten percent alcohol that tastes like nothing at all, very well hidden alcohol. Bright, and fresh hop flavors are in charge, maltiness is faint and sweet bread but the body is so thick and full but drinks so well and is actually refreshing at 10 percent alcohol.
