Great beer! I do not like oatmeal beers usually, but this has a perfect blend of hops and oats to create a smooth beer with little bitterness. Definitely a great beer!

12 oz undated bottle purchased from the refrigerator and consumed the next day.

Pours deep amber with a semi-durable head and very good laing.

Aroma: typcial hoppy APA

Flavor; some nice smoothness and oats, but mostly herbal/earthy hops. Feel: smooth and soft for style; medium carbonation.

O: a successful innovation, using oats; smooth feel in this bold IPA.

I've had plenty of this beer over the last year, but haven't reviewed until now. Since Ranger Creek's bottling line is up and running (thank you, Kickstarter), it's now easier to find their stuff in local shops.

Pours a light amber brown color with a small one-finger head. Nothing special about the appearance. The nose is nice enough, if unspectacular. Sweet malts, faint fruits (pear, apple) and an earthy herbal note. The taste is quite good, though. Sweet up front with a nice balance of fruitiness and maltiness, with a dry, clean palate and a dry, slightly bitter finish. Very nutty. Really good stuff. Mouthfeel is suitable for the style.

On the whole, I really enjoy this beer. I'm glad there are local breweries in SA these days that are brewing good, quality beers with consistency. This may well become my local session beer.
