Interesting hop profile that doesn't quite hit the usual Citra/Galaxy zone, maybe there is mostly Falconer, who knows. Oats definitely give it a fuller body but hops still linger metallic bitter and not sweet/fruity. Decent but missing something to round it out.

At just 6% ABV, this is a damned fine session IPA. Smooth in mouthfeel (oats, perhaps?), mango, peach and more citrus in the nose and on the palate, hazy orange and very nicely balanced with a delightful bitter finish. The Falconer's Flight, Citra and Galaxy hops play very well together. This beer is loaded with flavor. Otter Creek has themselves a winner here. Make yourself a winner and get some.

Pours a semi hazy yellow with fine, soft foam.

Smell is a little bit muted, with mainly pineapple, mango and peach notes.

Taste is very tropical, once again lots of mango and pineapple. Backed up by a very nice, balanced bitterness. This is very easy to drink, but with loads of flavor.

Mouthfeel is meium, godd carbonation.

Overall, a terrific IPA, very balanced and flavorful.

My new go to beer. 6/9/17 date, so inside 30 days! hazy yellow pour. Nice dank taste with light to medium body, easy finish and you can definitely have more than 1. Wish it was in the lower 5 percentile range, but I guess that is what their Daily Dose is for.
