A year old Bottle. Poured a clear amber. Nose of big malt and hops. Nice big Rich ipa hops followed Delicious malts tickled my palate while the Abv warmed my esophagus. Hop notes remained nicely. Quite good.

At Craft Beer Base’s IPA event. Bottle. I was only able to get a taste as this beer is exceptionally hard to find in Japan and I have no idea how they were deciding who got to try it... luckily enough I got to snag a few sips! For 10% ABV it went down ridiculously easily! A malty base which is pretty clomplex, you can definitely see the influence of the french oak. It was very good but not supper hoppy. The color was a rich golden brown with a fluffy white head which vanished quickly. Another great brew from Dogfish Head.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. One of the few hoppy beers aged on oak that I've really enjoyed. Well put together.

Bottle. Deep caramel color with dense, light tan head. Smells like caramel, hops and wood. Caramel, candy, toffee and just slight bitterness.

A: Deep orange amber, foamy cream head - sticky lacing
S: Pungent and mango and pineapple, sweet mustiness. Good amount of tropical fruit astringency. Great smooth and subtle oak and vanilla notes. Some apple juice
T: Big and bold - ripe and pungent citrus and tropical fruits, huge caramel malt body, finishes with oaky vanilla.
P: Huge for the style - incredibly smooth, viscous medium to full body, sticky and very chewy
O: Great beer! Right up there with 75 and 120. Great mix of bold hops and smooth oak.

This thing stank the second I started pouring it. Quite malty and bready. I was expecting it to be more hoppier and bitter. Slightly boozy. A little bit of bitterness. Good balance. I prefer the Minute IPAs but this is still pretty good.
