Pours deep amber with bitter hop notes. Nice lacing leads into a caramel, dense grain, toasted notes, and mild hop bitterness. Finishes with a nice deep flavor.

22oz bottle from Beers of the World in Henrietta. Pours a deep red with a nice head of soapy white bubbles. Aroma is plenty hoppy and with some caramel sweetness. The flavors are very well blended - the oatmeal helps develop the body nicely. Incredibly easy to drink.

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

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.

Draft pint. Very clean medium brown/orangish color. Lite bitterness and bit of spice in aftertaste. I'm not a big red fan, but I dig this beer!

Bottle: pours deep clear copper, soft tan head. Aroma of caramel malts, earth, pine and faint grains. More of the same on the palate with a reasonable dryness and malt based finish. Barely got the oatmeal distinction for this hoppy red. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Jimmy’s, tapped 3 days ago though relatively freshly kegged. More brown than red, unfiltered. Great body, full but not heavy, mostly dry with a decent hop character. Coffee and mild coffee. Very decent.

PhillyCraft (3069) - 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.

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.
