Wow -- I guess I get to be the first to review this beer. Yay!

Appearance: copper - amber, somewhat cloudy, absolutely no head. They must have rushed this to market a bit early before the carbonation is complete. Anyway, this is an easy thing to dial in.
Smell: aroma is melon, pineapple. moderate to strong.
Taste: Somewhat grainy. Very silky in the mouth, a bit of a sweet impression but also a good amount of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: the mouthfeel on this beer is amazing! very silky and just a hint of graininess which I would describe as spectacular. It is a bit undercarbonated ,
Drinkability: This may be the one of my top pale ales. I can't wait to try this when it becomes properly carbonated.

Overall, I am very impressed. If the rest of their beer line is like this I will be a big fan.

Good Job Rob!

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!
