A deep golden IPA brewed with golden naked oats and a large dose of American hops. The finish is bitter and dry, but not over the top. The alcohol is well-hidden and makes this beer super easy to drink.

On tap: The aroma consists of moderate citrus, lighter grapefruit, and a touch of pine. Itís a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with moderate sweet tropical fruits and citrus. The finish has moderate grapefruit with some light floral notes and faint spice. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel.

Growler thanks to Ilya! Pours a clear a gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of pine, grapefruit and sweet grains with a hint of onion underlying. Flavor has much more onion with a bit of pine, resin and sweet grains backing.

phaleslu (7108) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear gold with a small off-white head that laces the glass. Notes of sweet malts, oats, and caramel, balanced by pine resin, pineapple, and citrus fruits (mostly grapefruit). Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty, resinous mouthfeel. Nice double IPA. Well-balanced.

Growler. Pours a beautiful gold with white fluffy head that left quickly. Well carbonated, but not overly so. Aroma is floral, grapefruit, citrus. Taste is floral hops, piney and slightly bitter. No malt backbone to speak of, really well done. This is the exact type of IPA I enjoy most.

Nice malt forward double IPA. Bitter as it should be, but doesn't impede drinkability. Not getting oatmeal per se, but assuming it's coming in from the malt bill. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The alcohol on this one is up to 9%.
Arrives from the tap with a light tan, creamy textured, head. The beer is a hazed, honey and gold tinged color. The aroma smells like pure American hops; lots of lychee and guava that are backed by supporting candied tangelo zest, peach concentrate, and perhaps a hint of noticeable malt / grain character that supplies bits of cracker like pale malt, and maybe some sun-toasted hay notes.

The texture has a certainly fullness to it that might be Oat derived, and actually it is quite light and quaffable for a beer of this strength. There is actually a huge grapefruit character in the finish that really lingers on the palate; the most grapefruit like beer I have had in quite some time actually. Up front there is lots of tangelo zest character, ripe tangerine notes, a biting citrus oil character, floral citrus blossom notes, and really just a syrupy concentrated citrus character that lingers from beginning to end of each sip. There is a solid biting character to this beer, it is bitter, but a lot of the peppery bit comes from an essential citrus oil like character.

Definitely a nice Double IPA; I really like the juicy hop character that this has, and the malt character is barely noticeable, but really keeps the juicy hop character afloat in the flavor. I canít say that the oatmeal contributes much here, not really to the flavor, but perhaps just a bit to the texture, with just a bit of viscosity to it. A great way to finish off my first visit to this brewery.
