I brewed this recipe about a month or so. I brewed 11 gallons and split the batch with 2 different yeast, US-05 and WLP 080 Cream ale blend. Both 2 very different beers, loved both. The US-05 seemed more crisper, more rye pronounced. and the WLP080 had more body more balanced. The us-05 is gone, and the other is maybe a few pulls from being empty. I will be doing this recipe again, probably try a another yeast. Thanks for a great recipe.
Here is my glass full.. Thought the glass to be quite fitting.

I put part of this in a tap-a-draft keg and force carbonated. We have been tugging at it for a few days and thought I'd post a pic of it in a glass. Excuse the big chubby hand in the picture.

Took 1 gallon off the primary and aged it on oak for 4 days. 2 oz of oak was soaked in 1/4 cup bourbon for 2 days then both the oak and bourbon was added to the jug. I was tasting daily bc I had a ton of oak and bourbon for only 1 gallon, so 4 days was when it was ready and I really liked the taste. I am also planning on consuming this within 3-4 weeks of bottle, if I was planning on aging longer I would have prolly left the oak in for at least another week or two.

Even though I screwed it up it came out good.

Try this beer with a couple lemon slices in your glass. It 's perfect on a hot summer day. It reminds me of an Arnold Palmer.

Brewed 2 gallons of this 8/3/13 substituting Chinook for Cluster. I bottled half as was (1.054 OG to 1.015 FG) and oaked the other gallon on .35 oz toasted Jack Daniels oak chips for 5 days (toasted in oven at 375F for 40 mins). I tried the plain KY common 9/2 and its a really nice dark cream ale with a clean, crisp finish (easy drinking) but its really hard to pick out the rye so I might rebrew with a bit more.
I just had the 1st bottle of oaked and WOW! amazing... i had some Innis and Gunn when in Philly last weekend and I have to say, I prefer this oaked recipe to it. thin, creamy head on it after a few minutes, aroma of wood/oak/corn/cream ale similar to Innis and Gunn. its definitely not as dry as I&G, the oak also makes its appearance towards the finish, really rounding it out. it reminds me so much of a bourbon and coke, ha! I will be rebrewing this and oaking all of it! Thanks for the recipe

Brewing this as we speak. Also, the top photo is a batch I brewed about a month ago. Very nice beer!

Enjoying one of these after a long night of work. Great beer for the summer. Not as dark as OPs. Brewed it last year with the same result. Definitely a yearly brew
