3.73/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

A very good yet pretty simple and straight to the point beer. It's nicely along the lines of the other oatmeal pale ales I've recently tasted (props for Burnside and Mash Tun for also doing this style).

Rather to the point nose of citrus and oats. Some hops in the mix as well. Flavors also pretty simple yet pleasant enough. Again, more hops, some oatmeal, citrus, some malts too.

Texture is great, nice viscosity, wonderful balance and a lovely finish. It's all about the finish. A very solid pale ale that has that little extra grain kick that seems to (as it usually does) mute some of the hop and citrus aromas but adds a lovely texture.

Serving type: on-tap

3.6/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

Served from a tallboy can into a pint glass. Canned on 3/19/14

A- Poured a hazy light orange color with huge fluffy bright white head that left webbed lace.

S- Big orange citrus and lemon hoppy notes (definitely smells like Amarillo), sweet bready notes, and some other light fruity notes. It is not a huge aroma but it is so well-balanced and the hop expression is very bright and welcoming.

T- Lots of grainy, bready, and oatmeal notes, very high herbal and earthy bitterness, and some light fruity notes.

M- Prickly carbonation, medium body, very dry, and pretty refreshing.

O- The hop aroma and the hop flavor in this beer were very different with a really bright citrusy nose and a more herbal and bitter hop flavor. The bitterness is pretty harsh and I think overshadows what could be a solid pale ale underneath.

3.53/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy, pale orange, small head that dissipates quickly. Many chunks of sediment remain after a strong pour including dregs.

Nose: Lots of butter or butterscotch up front (diacetyl?), slight citrus spiciness.

Taste: Lots of citrus hops up front with strong carbonation enhancing it. Grapefruit and grassy notes arise mid way and remain to finish.

Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation, Light body yet smooth (oats?)

Overall: A very hoppy, unique pale ale that flirts with crosses into IPA territory. Diacetyl works to balance hop sharpness and low malt flavor.

Serving type: can

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

From 16 oz can to pint glass

A: The brew forms a frothy, 1-inch head on a gentle pour that leaves a fair amount of patchy lacing along the glass. The color is a light golden-tan, slightly opaque.

S: Hop forward nose, piny, with distinct notes of earthy tea. Light citrus notes bounce off a biscuity backdrop. The bouquet is floral and dry.

T: Bitter hops jump to the front, vinous and earthy. The tea-like tones in the nose are only accentuated on the palate. Citrus notes also noted. A touch of honeyed biscuits try to balance, but this is ultimately bitter and dry.

M: Chewy and stodgy for the ABV, the oatmeal works well for texture. Nicely carbonated.

Could use a little more malt-balance, but if you're looking for a hoppy, dry pale you could do a lot worse.
