Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Fruity citric hops, caramel malts, and a nice lingering candy hop bitterness. Full bodied and quite tasty.

Red with brownand orange tones.Frothy thick head.Lacing. Hoppy aroma with toasted grain subtley sweet malt maybe oats? Some breadiness. Taste is full with creamy chewy body.Nice toasted/roastedness with a good matching bittering to a mildly bittersweet dark carmel.Very fitting matching hoppyness with the malts.

This was a pleasant surprise. Very hoppy nose, citrus notes dominate, particularly grapefruit. Orange/red appearance, dark thick head with much retention. Beautifully balanced hop / malt. Takes amber to a new level. Oats add body and a bit of sweetness. This one is going to get a regular spot in my fridge.

(bottle - 22 oz) Copper pour with a creamy looking white head. Hoppy and citrusy aroma . Flavor begins with a good citrus hop flavor with a slightly dry and fruity bitterness. Oatmeal isn’t very apparent but that doesn’t matter to me. Really great citrus and floral hop flavor.

Bottle to enjoy Sunday evening. Pours deep copper with 2 finger beige head and nice nose of spruce forest. Tastes of malt, caramel, pine, earth, and toast. Pretty dry and plenty enjoyable

pepsican (1445) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Another blackipa gem. Great head and lacing on this amber beer. You’ll be happy if that’s your thing. Graham cracker, oat, earthy hops, citrus, a touch of pine all in the nose. Odd mouthfeel, but I actually like it for a change.

Advocate_Ames (428) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2012
A hoppy scent. A hoppy taste. Then a subtle red ale flavor. I can barely taste the oatmeal flavors. I have never had or noticed the combination of a red ale & oatmeal beverage. Now I know why. It is a good drink just not my thing.

wlajwl (3875) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Aroma is piney/spicy hops and a strong hint of the oatmeal. The flavor is grapefruit, malts, kiwi and a mix of smooth and spiciness in the finish.
