Another day, another canned brew from Oskar Blues Brewery, and today it’s a big IPA. It’s a big beer at 10%, and full bodied, with a good balance of sweetness vs. bitterness. The hops didn’t seem to have the complexity or richness that I’d expect from the hops in a top tier Double IPA like a Dogfish Head or a Stone, but it’s definitely a nice beer.
I give it a 3.5 out of 5.
Old Chub is a thick, dark, heavy Scotch ale from Oskar Blues Brewery, the same fine folks who make Dale’s Pale Ale. Old Chub is characterized by dark, sweet malts and a medium to full body. I have to be honest, it’s not really to my taste. If you’re a fan of very malty beers, this one might be right up your alley.
I give it a 2.5 out of 5, and that’s really due to it not being my cup of tea rather than the quality of the beer.
