COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft. Burnt orange, hazy. One finger of dense, sticky tan. Some thick horizontal lace. Bright, fruity nose. Mango, pineapple, grapefruit, a little fresh-cut grass. Outrageous. Such clear aromas. Fruitier in the flavor. More mango and other tropical tones play about, though I still get a touch of grass. Alcohol as well. A balance of fruits and bitterness. Medium body. Soft on the tongue. Mild, tingly carbonation. Great hop flavors, so clean and clear. The oats add just a bit of fruitiness and body. Crazy drinkable.

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 (7323) - 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.

TheHOFF43 (1771) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2014
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
