Described as an oatmeal imperial IPA.

Pours a hazy straw yellow

Smells of citrusy hops

On nitrous, smooth. Sweet and bitter. Would never guess it's approx 10%.

Well done

On tap today for the first time. An Imperial Oatmeal IPA served via nitrogen. Simcoe and Calypso hops, "100+" IBU.

A: Pours a golden yellow with a thin, fine, bright white head leaving drapes and curtains of lace.

N: Big juicy and wet citrus, pears with strong floral notes. Really nice,

T: Extremely hoppy floral bite with citrus, dank and weedy, spicy with a slight caty/onion quality.

M: Medium body and carbonation, The nitrogen delivery adds a smooth froth and the addition of oatmeal lends even more mellowness. Very lingering bitter and dry finish.

O: Just spectacular! The nose and taste are great. Brings to mind PtY. Perhaps named for the end of the world prediction which never happened (yet), but if you miss the opportunity to try this you might just wish it had. Go get this now.

Originally ranked as a 4. But additional taste deemed not as enjoyable by me. De-ranked by .25

Very fresh tasting, but something lacking in the current batch. Resorted back to their Chesboro IPA.

Poured a light and slightly hazy yellow with some sticky lacing. Aromas and flavors were dank citrus fruit, lemon pith, oats, and a wheaty triscuit-like backbone. Fairly creamy mouthfeel for the style. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty good!

On nitro tap at Ladyface Ale Companie in Agoura Hills, CA.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus, and floral aromas. Taste is much the same with onion and garlic hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a smell that is completely different from the taste in terms of the hop qualities.

Poured on nitro at the brewery. Not generally a fan of nitro stuff but this one worked. Huge citrus flavor and extremely smooth for 10.4%. Really Fantastic.
