Got a 6 pack at a local liquor store in Madison.
Big fan of the IPA's, and this one is alright in my book. While not the best IPA in my book (would have preferred a bit more hops), it still was refreshing and relatively smooth IPA that I enjoyed.
I'd recommend this beer to someone trying to get into the IPA style, or someone who is looking for a non-overbearing IPA.
If pairing with food, I would suggest something spicy to kick the hops up an extra notch.

Dark amber color with two fingers of head that had good retention before settling to a thick cap. Moderate amount of lacing is left down the glass.
Aroma was a let down with its timid hop aroma. Mild herbal and pine notes. Sweet caramel from the malt as well.
The flavor was equally disappointing. Definitely IPA levels of bitterness, but the hop flavor is very weak. Herbal and mint notes from the hops. Slightly sweet malt flavor. Nothing poor about the flavor, just not one of the better IPA flavor.
Enjoyable texture to the beer. Creamy feel that is unusual for most pale ales. The addition of oats is noticeable and appreciated.
The hops made a disappointed appearance in this beer. Would be a good beer if they could get more out of the hops besides bitterness.

Pours a murky amber color, clearly unfiltered, half finger of off white head
Smell is a dose of pine and earthy hop notes, a little citrus flows through, caramel, toffee, a nice plum like smell with a decent bread backing
Taste is bitter pine, a little grapefruit, bread, biscuit malt, caramel sweetness, some orange, herbal and earthy hops shine through in the bittering finish
Mouthfeel is medium, average carbonation with a nice dry finish
Good stuff, not great, but a nice beer none the less. Give it a shot.
