Pours dark orange with a robust dry hop aroma. A dry bitter that lasts through the body and finishes smooth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radarsock (913) - Vermont, USA - FEB 23, 2013
650 mL bottle purchased from Leary’s for $7.55. To snifter it pours a hazy, sandy chestnut with a hugely eruptive yellowish head two to three fingers in length. Has aromas of cornmeal, tapioca, yucca root, oatmeal, red liquorice, filament tape, clam juice, hops, autumnal leaves, and golden raisins. Tastes malty and and pleasantly bittersweet: has hints of oats and browned sugar on the forefront. Shortbread and bong water by swallow. Another hop-forward beer wherein gains its evident influence from the sativa hits at parties we never got to go to as a kid. Nicely done, I’m impressed.

boxofrane (2113) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Bomber from Wegman’s college ville. Pours reddish copper with some light coming through, a medium sized off white head, medium lacing. The aroma is certainly hoppy. There is a good bit of floral notes, medium pine, tropical fruit, a little sweetness. The taste has a nice hop punch at the front of the tongue that gives way to some caramel malt, a little rye, a little citrus. A solid offering.. and a bit dry, honestly.

Aniela (2313) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 25, 2013
Draught at the Gingerman NYC sept 2012. Dark amber beer with a small offwhite head. Very sweetish and hoppy aroma. Similar flavour.

mansquito (3387) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Devil’s Den, Philadelphia tap ($6): Pours a red colour with a creamy head. Aroma is citrus hops and a hefty amount of caramel malt, along with whatever oatmeal smells like. Taste is moderately bitter, but paled in comparison to the Hoppin Frog IPA I had right before this. Body is rather nice and smooth and the carbonation is mellow. Not bad for an amber.

AWISLguy (1292) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Bomber from ck1, shared with (at least) him - thanks bro! Pours a murky tannish amber. Nice lacing. Aroma has fruits, caramel and some grassy hops. Taste is of sweet caramel, some orange and brown sugar. Finishes sweetly. Not a Three Floyds as we mistakenly hoped!

DocLock (7861) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2012
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours caramelly ruby colored with clingy off-white head. Nose is piney hops, caramel malt, red wine grapes. Tasted complex, with a piney hop flavor, some vinous fruit at mid-palate, spare caramel malt, and a very hoppy finish.

bomber from Capone’s. Had this on tap at Tap & Mallet in Rochester, NY and decided to try it again (though in a different medium). Tough to call this an "amber". Aroma of evergreen, pine resin, toffee, dry hops. Mouthfeel is very velvety, almost chewy. Taste is overwhelmingly oats, dry piney hops and bready malt. This reminds me of Victory Hop Devil in that the complexion of the beer is clearly good, yet I can’t get over the lingering mouth-drying effect. Overall, A decent beer from a great little city. Would probably have been better if complemented with food (burger, short ribs, etc). Nice label art as well.

Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 29, 2012
In short: A piney golden IPA with strong oatmeal flavor. Orignal and good.
How: Tap at Nail Creek, Utica NY.
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a medium beige head with good retention.
In long: Nose is hop-forward with a dominant piney character but also herbal notes, citrus fruits and lemongrass. Taste is something else. I could really taste oatmeal flakes in this one, like my breakfast Quacker’s oatmeal I buy in bags that get me an oatmeal bowl in 5 minutes. Oatmeal, and lots of it. Also usual caramel and a bit of honey. Then the hops, assertive but not overwhelming, very much pine-tree and green pine-needles but with also a bit of dry grass and refreshing citric notes. Body was full and velvety, expansive carbonation that filled the mouth very every little sip, a mouthfeel that is obviously reminiscent of oatmeal stouts. Far from a masterpiece, if anything I liked it a lot mostly because there’s not many oatmeal IPAs out there, so this was something fun because unusual, but I’d probably quickly get tired of beers like this if full-on-oatmeal IPAs were commonplace. Entering my backlog of ratings makes me thirsty, I wish my local all-you-can-drink beer bar was open right now, or at least existed.

PhillyCraft (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle after Thanksgiving dinner. Slightly clearish cranberry pour with khaki med to large head. Awesome streaks of lacing surrounding the inners of my glass. Aromas are very hoppy and red ale dominant..piney. Smaller notes of spicy grains malt, caramel toast, pepper, rust, and cherry. Taste is bitter hops, ashy grains, cracker jack, oats, tobacco, and light vanilla.
