777. DC Brau / Oskar Blues Smells Like Freedom

DC Brau Smells Like FreedomThis is the best beer in the box so far but I do have a few saisons left to drink. Smells Like Freedom is a collaboration between DC Brau and Oskar Blues (see link here for more detail).

Smells Like Freedom pours a radiant orange with a thick white head. Lots and lots of dank piney hops with a bit of tangerine and pineapple in both the nose and the taste. Carbonation and mouthfeel were both excellent. Finish has a nice bitterness and leaves an oily residue that lingered long after the beer was finished.

DC Brau and Oskar Blues set out to create a dank IPA and they did just that. If you have a way of getting this beer you should give it a try.

Brewers Description: Smells Like Freedom is a big, juicy hop-bomb of an IPA with a nice medium body that is slightly dried out thanks to the addition of sugar the brewing kettle. The hop profile is huge. Notes include resiny, piney, earthy, sticky, cannabis and white pepper with aromas of cannabis, tangerine and sugar-coated ruby red grapefruit to entice the drinker. Smells Like Freedom drinks with a subtle punch of bitterness upfront that fades into a pleasant, palate-coating bitterness that attractively lingers and asks for another sip. This one is sure to please beer geeks and IPA fans with many layers of flavor upon flavor.
