Very disappointing - white head, too much carbonation, poor nose and alcohol taste predominant.

On draft at Milwaukee Ale House.

The beer is dark copper with a quarter inch of off-white head. The aroma offers resinous hops, pine, earth. Hop flavor followed by subtle notes of mint and herbal tea. An odd assortment. Not entirely off-putting, but certainly unusual. Some bready notes as well, finishing with a semi-sweet bitterness. Interesting. One and done for me.

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.
