Draught at The Friendly Spot. Malty IPA with some big rye notes (even if it’s oat). Really nice overall.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fairly clear light amber coloured body with an orange glow at the bottom and a decent light brown glow at top - odd. Aroma of pungent earthy and perfumey hops with a large oatmeal and malt nose. Medium-bodied; Deep earthy and pungent malt note with a lot of bitterness and a light caramel and toffee touch. Aftertaste shows a hint of hops but largely showing a varied malt profile with oatmeal by far the strongest. Overall, an interesting and pungent beer with some good flavours and a deep backbone of oatmeal that shows well. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whip In yesterday, 05-May-2014 in Austin, Texas for US$2.50 sampled in my hotel room here in Austin, Texas on 06-May-2014.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber with a white head. Smell is nutty, toasty, fruity and yeasty as it warms and opens up. Starts smelling like homebrew after a few minutes though and more yeasty. Taste is toasty, bittersweet caramel like malt, fruity hops with moderate bitterness and definitely a creamy mouthfeel with prickly carbonation. Decent.

Tap in San Antonio. Disliked this. Wanted to try to see effect of oats. I got nada. Just too much hops and over carbonated pale ale. Meh

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Christmas bottle that Zac brought. Pretty tasty brew. You get a good dose of Pacific NW hops in the aroma plus a nice bitterness bite in the flavor. It is balanced nicely by the addition of oats which also adds some smoothness. Very pleasant and easy drinking.
