A - Clear orange glowing gold brew with a nice soft and creamy white head that leaves some fuzzy and creamy white lace on the glass.

S - Some hay like hop notes with a hint of biscuity malt. Not very assertive, but it's nice and fruity. Mango and kiwi?

T - One is fruity as hell and it really comes alive with oddball tropical fruit flavors. Light grapefruit, kiwi, starfruit, mango, and peach. Really unique and smooth.

M - Mellow, smooth, lush and creamy. A really nice and mellow British style mouthfeel. This is more full in body than I expected, and quite nice.

D - A great summer session brew with some unique fruity characteristics. Thirst quenching and highly drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

Review from notes:
They were out of Eric the Red and it was replaced with the Oatmeal Pale Ale. I've never had an oatmeal pale ale, sounded intriguing. The funny thing is that both the flavors and characteristics of oatmeal and pale ales were quite noticeable which left an unusual combination. I taste the oatmeal creaminess upfront and am expecting a roasted barley kind of finish but instead I get a strong, hoppy bitter kick. Weird, but good weird, to a point. This beer had 80 IBU's so the kick was really a kick! The flavors weren't really smooth together, I don't think they were made to mix but that's what experiementing is all about and this brewer did about as good of a job as I think anyone could do. Definitely worth a try but I'd be happy after one.

This is a brewmaster's special at the Chicago location. Very interesting combo of styles. The bartender did an expert, Guiness-type two-part pour, which imparted a 2-color head (the head proper and a disappearing layer of fizz beneath). Just sipping the head is both bitter and creamy, and it doesn't just lace, it coats the glass. Orange-amber body with a toasted pale malt taste. No bubbles, but a nice prickly mouthfeel, bubblier than a pub pull, and redolent of bitterness (29 IBU, it says). Great IPA bitterness melded to a creamy oatmeal body. Good effort on brewmaster Pete Crowley's part.
