look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Slight haze
Smell is citrus with slight pine
Taste is just like bitter brothers citra IPA. Citrus but yet piney but not as hoppy.
Overall, this beer feels like a west coast IPA but less flavor.

Pours a hazy yellow orange with a finger of dense head, lots of fine lacing all the way down the glass.
Smells more citrusy than anything, lemon and orange dominate, maybe a little pine in the background.
Taste follows the lemon orange nose, a little bitter bite on the end.
Lighter body with low to medium carbonation.
Overall very tasty APA.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look is a milky and hazy bright orange. Pours with a finger of white fluffy head.

Aroma is definately citrus forward. Lemon, grapefruit and orange front and center and maybe some tropical fruit lingering in the background. It has a real nice aroma to it.

Taste follows nose. Grapefruit and lemon/orange upfront followed by some mango and other tropical fruit. Finishes with a nice little bitter kick.

Feel is smooth and creamy due to the oats and being unfiltered I would think.

Overall a really nice pale ale. It packs a punch for aroma and the taste isn't to far behind.

Appearance - Pours bright hazy orange with fluffy white head. Nice sticky lacing all around the glass.

Aroma - Lots of citrus lemon, pineapple, orange and a hint of hops thrown in. Great aroma.

Taste - Nice oat flavor, tropical flavors same as nose mango, pineapple and some orange. A nice slightly bitter bite at the end.

Feel - Light side of medium well carbonated with just a touch of dryness on the finish.

Overall - A really great tasting beer, light fruit/hop aroma wonderful flavors.

Nice hoppy session made a bit more interesting with the oats in there. Lots of flavour bang for your alcohol buck in this one.

Probably worth another taste Jason....

Pours a hazed golden color with a white head. Smell is cracker malts with citrus hops. Taste is more citrus/tropical with hops sweet malts an d a pine hop finish. Medium carbonation with hops and slight bitterness. A good PA if i had access to it would not buy it on a regular basis.
