The newest year-round offering from Oskar Blues has a nice earthy hop aroma with soft vanilla notes and tropical hop flavors blended with a soft malt presence in the background. An overly powerful garlicy aroma and flavor profile (presumably from the hop selection) distracts from the overall enjoyment of the beer. Still, this is a refreshing and lively beer -- providing a very different hop profile compared to many other American IPAs.
