3/5 rDev -12%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
Bottle poured into an imperial pint glass.
A - Hazy amber, with little off-white head the lacks any retention or lacing.
S - Dank wet smelling hops. Very pungent and in your face. Comes across mainly as grapefruity. Has a delicate alcoholic tinge to it, even a kiss of sweet malt.
T - No sign of malt early on when hop bitterness quickly ambushes with the bitterness being perceived on the sides of the tongue. Not the most refreshing hop flavors but impactful and ever present.
M - Has a dry medium body with light carbonation. Has a clinging hop finish that refrains from being crisp.
O - I enjoyed the dense smell of this beer but there was little character to the hops and malt in its flavor

3.15/5 rDev -7.6%

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.
