This was a very good pale ale it was a darker color and had that good oatmeal frothy head. I really enjoyed this one paired with a nice cut of beef.

Whoo! Need to pour this bottle slow. Big head on this one that wants to hold on for a long time. Dirty orange brew that has the aroma of orange juice and grain. From the junk floating about in it and the junk left at the bottom of the bottle it may be a bottle conditioned brew. Lots of citrus hops with some grain and malt backbone to it. Pretty decent for an APA and since this is my first OPA will have to use it to set the standard for OPA. Got a six pack of it on my trip to Fort Worth. Don’t get it, Ft. Worth is north and San Antonio is south of me. So how does it bypass my area? The distributors in Bell County suck!

On tap at The Rustic in Dallas. Pours a nice copper color with off-white head. Oats, pine, nuts, and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with some fruitiness.

Pretty good brew...tons of fruity esters in aroma...but ok with me. Citrus hops, and great mouthfeel, maybe to do with the Oats...really liked this

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper color with a dark red hue. Aromas apricot, slight peach, medium pine and mild caramel. Flavors medium caramel, light pine, light citrus, apricot, slight peach. Medium sweet and bitter. A decent pale but the oatmeal only seems to give an expected body with nothing to over the top or distinguishing other than the name implies.
