Oskar Blues Gubna

type: imperial IPA
origin: Longmont, CO
price: $16/4-pack (Jesus fuck that's expensive)
abv: 10.0%

I've enjoyed Oskar Blues' beer quite often, but this doesn't make the cut. Multiple sources have said it tastes awful; I'm not so sure I'll go that far, but it just doesn't work for me. It's too expensive for the kind of boring flavors going on. It tastes too alcoholic for it's own good, and I agree with others I've heard that say you get "metallic" flavors. It's got absolutely gorgeous coloration, but that's all I can say with a straight face.

Note to brewers: You can't charge Dogfish Head prices for beer that's not Dogfish Head quality.

Note to Beer Advocate reviewers rating this upwards of 100: You're all fucking idiots.

Nuff said.
