3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light amber with an aroma of bourboned oak and melon and pineapple hoppiness with some boozy undertone. Big pineapple flavor with some caramelly and sharp oak undertones that lend a little pineapple flavor overall. Tropical hoppy yet sharp oaky.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pleasantly surprised here. Deep copper. Nose of caramel malts, citrus hops, light oak. Fairly malty, but dry, with juicy hops, and light wood tannin. Oak really rounds out the mouthfeel and adds a nice complexity to the beer. RIght up there with Burton Baton if not better for me.

Draft. Pours a deep copper/amber. Aroma of tropic fruit, pine, mango. Orange zest. Taste is pine, fresh orange flesh, grapefruit. Slight sweet malt balance. Slight booze presence on the finish. Surprisingly complex for a DIPA. Sticky sweet finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a darker amber color with off-white head. A hint of oak on this, more so citrus and a little pine. I really didn’t get much from the barrel on this one, which is disappointing, was expecting more, especially for the price.

Pours hazy amber with very little head out of bottle. Sweet aroma of hops mixed with the aroma of a used American oak barrel. Sweet flavor of bourbon with a hop finish. Excellent beer!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2014 Tropical fruit combine with citrus and wood to provide a rewarding aroma. A cloudy copper pour with a thin white head and abundant lacing preceed the flavors of pine, resin, with notes of wood, vanilla, and fruit. Medium body with medium carbonatin. In summation, this is a nicely crafted DIPA. The hops don’t blow your head off, but instead provide satisfying tasting experience.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 750 ml Bottle. The beer pours to a amber/brown color. The head very thick white foam. The aroma is piney, smokey, oak & some alcohol. The taste has a bourbon, oak & some citrus. Overall an ok DIPA. Doesn’t seem to have a lot of hop bitterness to it though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
