3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 The aroma of this beer is a sweet, oaky aroma with an underlay of citrus hops. It pours a reddish amber, with a nice off-white head. Definitely not what I was expecting taste wise, it is a sweet beer, with an underlying oak and apple flavoring, and just a bit of hops at the end. Long finish on it, and the alcohol is very well hidden. An interesting beer, but not worth the cost in my opinion. I do have several bottles cellared, and will re-rate when they are opened. (Cellared bottle) The oak notes have faded a bit, sweetness and vanilla have strengthened up in the aroma. The hops have completely fallen out. It pours the same, but the flavor has gone much sweeter. Not a fan of this one even after the aging.

This is one of my favorites. Strong malty flavor and not too hoppy. Strong like a barleywine.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. 9/2/15 bottle date (72 days old). Appearance: Deep golden orange, clear, with a moderate off white foam head. Nice lacing down the glass.
Aroma: Pungent tropical fruit aromas (pineapple, mango, orange) with strong resin and a bit of green apple.
Taste: Rich malt sweetness with some breadiness and caramel. Quickly rolls into a bold but balanced bitterness and hop flavors or resin, grass, pineapple, and grapefruit. Leaves a dry tartness.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a low to moderate bitterness. Alcohol warmth is there but well hidden considering the strength.
Finish: Dry, sticky resin on the tongue with long lingering bitterness and touch of bready malt.
Overall: Really nice complex aroma. Malt character similar to other IIPAs, and the bitterness balances well considering it’s strength. Very drinkable for a beer of this size and intensity.

Would have loved more hop presence in this new barrel aged fad......but still excellent. Old ale, bourbon, oak. Not an ipa.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, pours hazy gold, small white head. Aroma is piney hoppy, medium caramel & toffee malt, pineapple. The oak comes through late in the palate, with light bitterness. The texture is resiny, chewy and sticky. For such a hoppy DIPA, not too bitter, all nicely rounded and balanced, very very good, although there is a bit of residual alcohol in the aftertaste.

독피시 헤드 브루잉 - 버튼 바튼, 오크 에이지드 임페리얼 IPA 10.3% ABV 에이징 맥주라는데 걸맞지 않은 프래시 함이 튀어나와 살펴보니 프래시한 것과 에이징한것을 섞었다고한다.& 선택의 좋은결과
도수에 비해 가볍고, 마시기 쉽다. 살구등의 달콤한 과일, 짙은 봄날의 만발한 등나무 아래서 술잔을 기울이는 느낌의 맥주다. 아카시아나 라일락등의 봄철에 피는 향기강한 꽃 내음이 가득하다.

Murky orange with white-off head. Aroma is sweet malts, wood, hops. Taste is rich and complex, fruity, caramel, malts, an oak hint and the hops (great absent in their 90 minutes). Boozy but tasty. Medium body, a great sipper!
