A Northwest IPA with a little twist. It is composed of about 30% oats that lend this beer a great mouth feel and a slight creaminess to it. We used generous amounts of Zeus, Galena, and Summit hops and dry-hop with Cascade hops to finish it off. It has a nice citrus and floral aroma and the oats balance the hop bitterness with just the right amount of sweetness.

Poured into my slim tulip ... the brew is slightly hazed light amber.. Pine are muted by pale malt sweetness ... especially with warmth.. flavor is decent but needs more hoppiness across the board. It begins with a good bitterness that dies off pretty quickly... dry pale malt and possibly some toasty malt notes.. Oats? The body has a sorta slick profile..... for an IPA, folks want lively/vibrant hop aromas and flavors. Not there yet.

22oz bottle pours out a amber topped with a white head. Nose is citrus wet wheat floral and some grass. Taste is more of the citrus fruits some sourness and a odd ending. Not a fan.

(22oz bottle) Pours a burnt orange body with a medium white head. Aroma of pineapple, caramel, mango, orange, toffee, oatmeal, light florals, and vanilla. Flavor of citrus, grass, oatmeal, and florals with a dry, bitter finish.

Brought this back from McCall, ID where I got it a Paulís Grocery and shipped a bottle to Strykzone in a trading box. We shared it on Facebook Chat. It poured a clear copper color with a light tan head and good lacing rings. The nose is citrus hops. The body is quite bold and the mouthfeel very rich and creamy . The flavor is dominated by the hops, with a lot of citrus but some floral tastes as well. The oatmeal is there in the malts and blends perfectly with the other malts and hops. Excellent balance overall. The finish is nicely bitter and this one is good to the last drop. The addition of oatmeal really works here.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had this together via facebook chat. The beer pours light coppery and is clear with a beige head that has good retention. The aroma is, well, like an IPA with oatmeal. It is unique and the hops are muted a bit by the oatmeal. They are citrus and fairly bitter. That bitterness is long lasting in the after taste. The oatmeal had a significant effect on this beer. I have not had such a combination before and it makes me wonder why other brewers donít do this. Hops are allowed to shine if different ways.

Unique IPA. Love the smoothness, great flavor. Always worth a growler fill when they have it on tap. One of my favorite locals.

Bottle: Pale gold color with a small off-white head. Floral aroma and something flat. Low-lying bitter flavors with a kind of funky bitter trailer. Weird, but I liked it.

22 oz. Light haze on the lively, amber body and a half inch of lasting foam on top. Nose is grapefruit and caramel. Taste is the same, but more grapefruit and less caramel. Big bitter finish of resin and oaty-cardboard. Near-medium body is dry and soft.

Copper/yellow pour (strange to see this in an oatmeal beer), lots of head - aromas of hay, light caramel, slight citrus, sour wheat - first taste is hops with lots of alcohol feel on the tongue and mouth - a bit thin with a lingering hops bitterness

Light copper, clear, off white head. Aroma: a little nutty earthy oat character, light citrusy hop aroma, some fruity esters. Flavor: very earthy-nutty oat character, resiny hop flavor with some green vegetal notes, medium-full body with some oat silkiness in mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
