KyotoLefty (6465) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2014
Draught at MacGregors. Brow-orange color, fine low head. Very fruity nose; cherry, orange, lemon. Very fruity flavor of cherry, orange, pineapple, grape. Earthy hops, some pine, nice bitterness. A strange but good fruitiness. Good beer.

DrSilverworm (6421) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 11, 2013
22oz bottle, thanks to radarsock. Totally hazy darker orange brown color. Thin khaki head. Sort of bubbly, but it has good retention. Just a couple loose dots of lace. Stronger, soft carbonation, Medium body. Kind of a metallic flavor, some spicy hop. Lightly fruity. Weird light bite, light bitter, more sweet. Nothing really working for me with this brew. Must be a bad or old bottle, I’m thinking.

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.

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.

swoopjones (5900) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 26, 2012
draft at Coles, Buffalo NY. deeper amber crimson pour. Big malty nose, some citrus hops. Bready maltiness, toasty. Oatmael adds a nice touch. Not a huge fan of amber but this is a pretty good one

DSG (5829) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Clear deep golden-copper coloer. Nice hoppy aroma with overripe fruits, citrus and a bit of maltiness. Flavoe has some sweetish malt, a caramelly touch, citric hops with a piney note and a nice moderately bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Quite nice.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle with a cool label. Pours like all red/ambers should -- rich with color, with a reasonably sized but resilient head of slightly tan foam. The aroma is solidly laden with enough malt and hop character to draw you in. This drinks with a very nice, velvety mouthfeel, and the beer is rich with some fruity hoppiness, very well interlaced with a concrete base of firm malt. Quite good. (#5324, 11/14/2013)

PorterPounder (5557) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2014
Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark copper, very slight off-white head - a touch of lace. Aroma is pleasant, a hint of spruce, some apricot fruitiness. Flavor is solid and well balanced with some solid grapefruit bitterness, a touch of yeasty bready notes, some minty side notes. Mouthfeel has a nice crispness to it. Nothing unique or special, but a good solid drink.

b3shine (5460) - Indiana, USA - MAY 9, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks alright; a murky orangish-brown with fluffy light beige head. Smells sweet, citrusy, and bitter. Tastes like it smells, but less balanced. Average on the palate.

Bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a cloudy orange brown color with a dense medium sized beige head. The aroma was sweet, citrus juice, herbal, and soapy. The flavor was similar, but had a hint of oatmeal, metal, mild bitterness and prickly carbonation. This was a bit of a mess.
