COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The name is a tribute to the hop shortage a few years ago. An imperial IPA aged on oak spirals using Columbus, Centennial and cascades as the bittering hops and dry hopping with Simcoe, Ahtanum, Amarillo, and Cascades.

From a 4pack of cans from Greenís in Atlanta. Very pleasant citrus hop and pine aroma. Taste is nicely rounded - little on the maltier side - with caramel, pine, grapefruit, and oak. Creamy medium texture with light buzz of carbonation. Leaves a moderately bitter, but long aftertaste. Covers the alcohol well. Pretty good.

200th rating for this beer. 12 oz. can (which says it was canned in Minnesota at Cold Spring, by the way) from Root Cellar in Cincinnati. Split a 4-pack with my sister-in-lawís boyfriend. Great artwork on the pack and cans- 21st Amendment has been doing a great job with that. Pours a bright, cloudy orange-gold color with a pretty thick, rocky eggshell white head that leaves light lacing along one side of the glass. Aroma of oak, floral hops, coconut, sweet and caramel malts, straw, and a bit of butterscotch. Flavor of floral hops, orange citrus, oak, straw, melon, caramel malts, and sweet dough. Medium-bodied, with a sweet, almost coating mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice oak-aged DIPA. Worked well with dinner.

CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Can. Pours a bright, clear orange and gold color with foamy white head. The aroma is predominately caramel malt, tropical fruit (mango, guava) and hops resin. The flavor starts off with lots of citrus (orange, grapefruit, tangerine) and toasted malt along with some herbal hops, vanilla and alcohol notes. The body is slightly syrupy with medium-level carbonation and a bitter, boozy finish. Itís a little rough around the edges but definitely delivers on the hops front.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 20, 2011
THOUGHTS: I could smell this from two feet away. Quite intense. Hid alcohol incredibly well. The wood wasnít really very noticeable. Great beer, but it only falls in the middle of the sea of DIPAs. TECHNICAL: Can. Poured a clear, light to medium orange with an average to large, off-white head that mostly diminished but left excellent lacing. The aroma had moderate to heavy caramel and candy; moderate to heavy pine, citrus and catty hops; white wine and light wood. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet and light to moderately bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and heavy to almost harshly bitter with a fairly long duration. There was sugar water, pale malts, wood, pine hops, citrus hops, caramel, white wine, a little light fruit, candy and catty hops. The medium to full body was fairly oily with lightly fizzy carbonation and a slightly alcoholic and very dry finish.

Can at Oliver Twist. Clear amber/golden liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of pine, citrus, caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak and coconut. The notes from the oak aging arenít overpowering and works well with the rest of the aroma. Taste is dry, light sweet and highly bitter with notes of fresh, fruity hops. Medium bodied with ok carbonation. Really tasty, most balanced oak aged IPA Iíve had.

The sure was a pleasant surprise. Pours clear light golden with a large egg shell white head. The aroma has funky tropical fruit hoppiness, light oak, pale malt, floral hoppiness along with mild green onion - excellent. Medium smooth lush body with very gentle carbonation. The flavor starts with more oak giving vanilla/oak presence along with lightly toasted malt and a good amount of spicy / tropical / funky hops. The finish has mainly the hop flavors and is quite resiny. Very nice IIPA.

Joel (114) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Pours pale and slightly hazy with little head. Good hoppy aroma, but not as strong as some. Strong notes of grapefruit and citrus. Not overly bitter and finishes with alcohol, but hides the 9.7% well. A nice imperial IPA.

PhillyCraft (5585) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2011
Can with Justin and Joe. Pour is a clearish golden color with spotty lacing on top and a small ring of head on the outer sides of the inner glass. Aromas of honey, vanilla, tangerine, caramel, tangy pine. Taste is similiar with a good malt fill mixed in with the juicy floral flavors. Little too bitter and boozey. Good double IPA though.

Very few floral hops. Thin bodied, lacks the golden color desired. Not as bitter as desired.
