Oatmeal IPAOatmeal IPA
Notes: Our Oatmeal IPA will change the way you look at IPA! Brewed with a generous portion of flaked oats that provide a creamy, velvet-like mouthfeel, this IPA takes nearly all of its hops (Chinook, Mosaic and Citra) as late additions and dry hops during fermentation, resulting in big aromas and flavors of grapefruit and cantaloupe with very little bitterness. Enjoy this beer, best paired with sunshine, friends and good vibes.

A good Ipa, but definitely doesn't taste anything like Oatmeal. I get a mixture of light fruit and some pine. Its like a decent Ipa that wont be anyone's favorite but definitely not anyone's least favorite. Second beer of Mother Earth Brewing, their synopsis on each can of the beer is extreme hyperbole, making them sound like its a beer that will punch you in the mouth with flavor. They are lighter beers with very nice melodic flavors and I think they should own that, it's okay to be zesty and not full flavored.

Pours a lighter golden color. Semi clear. 1 1/2 finger white very frothy head. Retention is excellent.
The nose is a mellow orange citrus aroma.
Taste - is a very mellow citrus flavor. Very light. Very inoffensive.
Lighter feeling, but a nice carb feel on the back of my throat.
Ok IPA overall.

I used to be a pretty big fan of all these north carolina micros. With family in the state I regularly would fill my luggage with new to me treats, but over the years...things have changed. Mother earth isnt the powerhluse to me that she once was (not that the brewery changed, but the beer scene has really learned how to make an amazing ipa). With oatmeal ipas being all the rage I love the body...This is decent...but that's it...in a world of amazing, not very memorable but not bad.

Look: It pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Head retention is excellent. There is a fair amount of lacing.

Smell: The aroma is heavy with citrus and grapefruit. There are also low levels of melon. There are some grainy sweet elements low in the background.

Taste: The flavors are highlighted by citrus, melon, and grapefruit. There is also a noticeable oatmeal flavor. There are also background notes of bread as well. There is a bit of a watery part to it as well in the flavor.

Feel: It has a moderately full body with a creamy mouthfeel. The bitterness is moderate.

Overall, the texture is very good and the grapefruit and melon flavors work well together.

12 oz can with a July 2017 canning date stamp.
Pours with a hazy honey colored body topped by a tall, foamy white head.
Medium+ carbonation in a very smooth, medium body.
Light bitterness for style. Hints of pine and citrus with a touch floral.

L: Had this beer on-tap at Brewmasters, poured into a tulip glass. Had a dark orange color and a cloudy consistency. There was a half inch of foamy head that lasted an average amount of time. Fair lacing.

S: A nice aroma of hops, light citrus fruit, malt, oatmeal, and tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a bunch of citrus fruit (grapefruit, in particular), a bit of malt, a good amount of hops, some of the advertised oatmeal (not as much as expected), and tropical fruit (mangoes, papayas). One of the more interesting IPA flavors I've tried recently. Sweet, fruity, and oddly tasty.

F: A well-carbonated beer with a somewhat slick finish. Light-bodied.

O: While this isn't a perfect example of an IPA, it is worth a look if you want something different. Drinkable.

A: Pours a murky golden burnt orange in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and faint golden yellow colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense creamy foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a large patch of medium thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Just shy of moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Slightly stronger than moderate aromas of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, and tropical/mango hops over the top of light to moderate aromas of biscuit + caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of sweetness.

T: Upfront there are just shy of moderate flavors of biscuit + caramel malts with a light to moderate amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate to strong flavors of juicy citrus/grapefruit, citrus/orange, and tropical/mango hops with a hint of dank resinous hops which contribute a light amount of bitterness which does not linger for too long.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Initially slightly crisp with a smooth finish and a hint of dryness.

O: Enjoyable and easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Refreshing with nice hop flavors and aromas with only a light amount of bitterness. Refreshing, I could have a couple of these quite easily.
