Pours a hazy medium amber with ample off white head and good retention. Nicely balanced aroma with spice and earthy hop and a good malt profile as well, bready with a touch of cramel and oat. Taste follows with malt taking a backseat to hops. Mainly spicy with woody and earthy tones, also a touch of citrus. Mouthfeel is smooth, but slightly slick. An interesting concept, but I don't think they achieved anything by adding oats. It hazed up the appearance and didn't improve mouthfeel that much. Overall a good pale ale. I like the hop and malt profile.

Two fingers of frothy head on a copper/orange colored body.
A mellow aroma of grain, hay and lemons.
The taste has medium bitterness of lemon with a not a hint of sweetness.
A softer texture, moderate carbonation and medium body.
Pretty good and good job with using the oatmeal.

- Pours a nice copper clear ale with a robust beige light white head... big retention and thick head settles to yet a thin solid pillow of creamy foam and lace about the glass. Certainly pretty, and shows signs of excellent yeast activity.
- Wonderful fresh herbal and grassy bitter hop aromas with a balancing bready character from the oats, and a zesty hop pine essence. Balanced caramel sweetness compliments the perfect hop additions.. truly a nice smelling beer.
- Good enough to bottle. That is what I say anyway. The caramel and pine and bitter hop represents well, and this is truly a nice pale... though a touch robust in flavor, and it seems perhaps pulled a touch early. It does show some aceto-like traits of high esters and cider-like tartness. However, it is tasty yet, and to be had fresh as possible. Balance is king, and it's early boil bitterness is unmatched.
Mouth Feel: (3.5)
- Solid medium body and is very well carbonated, almost too much so... though it makes the beer look stellar. Bit drying from the bitter hops which is wonderful, and only a touch chewy and cloying.
- This beer is pretty, and is made with what seems like great ingredients. It is balanced, nicely bittered, and sits in a glass perfectly for a nice amount of time. There are some off flavors however that equate to tartness from an early pull, or ester-like aceto in the mix. If that wasn't present, this would be up there with the likes of Fort George's Sunrise.. though for me, that is a hard oatmeal pale to beat.

Hazy light amber with a three finger off white head. Good amount of lacing.
Smell is grainy tangy malts. Some floral hops.
Taste is bitter hops with a smooth malty backbone. The oats seem to overwhelm the hops and malt character. Smooth for sure but kind of bashes the hop and malt character.
Mouthfeel is quite full , adequete carbonation and has a medium dry bitter finish.
Overall a pretty fair APA maybe hit a bit too hard by the oatmeal.
Well worth a taste though, might be just what you are looking for!

Probably the best and most consistent beer these guys produce. Pours a pale tan/straw hue with a persistent head fading to a really nice lace.
Nose is all pale ale with mild malts and hops, some citrus, and a hint of the oatmeal coming through. Surprisingly inviting.
Palate is fresh with lovely hops up front and along the side of the mouth. A nice citrus core rounds things out. A hint of cereal and malt.
Texture is lovely with a grainy consistency, good balance of acids, tannins, and alcohol. Finish is medium with good character. Decent grip.
This is a winner, and a beer that I would regularly select out of a tap list of usual suspects. If you're in the mood for something new or different, then this is a worthy candidate for drinking.

22 oz bottle from Roth’s Sunnyplope store in S.Salem. $4.99 Pours a slightly hazy dark golden colour with a large bubby off white head. Aroma is subdued and mostly of oats,slightly grassy hop and hay Taste not so subdued with resiny hops and smooth oat and a touch of toffee. Nice yet odd on the tongue smooth from the eats yet well carbonated at the same time! OK beer drinkable.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a clear amber color that's more on the ruby reddish side. Minimal streams of carbonation bubbles rise to the top, but it looks rather still overall. A thin rocky white film sits on top with no head to begin with.
S: It has a nice hop profile that is immediately noticed. This leads to some piney and quite a bit of fruity aromas. Light sweet malts and oats come through as well. There is a good balance between hops and malts, something I enjoy in a good APA.
T: The taste is similar to the smell with a good balance of fruity and piney hops with the sweet and roasted malt and oat characters. Quite enjoyable.
M: It is medium bodied with a minimal amount of carbonation. It has a smooth, creamy finish that can most likely be attributed to the addition of the oats. A very small bitterness finishes it off.
O: This was quite a pleasant beer to enjoy. It was well balanced and put together and overall, a unique spin on an APA with the addition of oats.

22oz bottle into tulip snifter.
Pours a golden orange, with foamy, off-white head.
The aroma is of citric hops, with a sweet, malty, grainy, oatmeal backing. Unique, and quite enjoyable.
The taste is as the nose, with some citric hops followed quickly by sweet oatmeal malt notes.
A pleasant medium body with soft, lightly prickly carbonation.
A very enjoyable pale ale. The oatmeal is a unique addition and really adds a smooth, sweet backing that I enjoyed quite a bit.
