Subtle oak aroma but overwhelmed by earthy citrus hops. Cloudy copper color with big yeast chunks covered with a thick white foam. Bold hop bitterness with a full body. Long lasting bitterness but delicious.

Bottle of the 17anniversary aged in cellar fridge. Pours a dark copper, malty aroma followed by the alcohol. Very good full bodied beer.

Sweet and woodden taste. Herbal at the nose with a bit of nuts and chocolate. The sweetness is balanced by a strong bitterness, making an ’harmonious extreme’ beer.

Very bready malty. But a nice amount of hops in the aroma. Not bad but quite balanced. Nice vanilla warm taste from the oak. Quite good, but not amazing

Smells very malty to be an ipa..Nice golden-brown-ish. The taste not bad, but a little too strange if you ask me. Good mouthfeel. Good beer, but i like the concept more than the beer!

Bottle. Pours a hazy copper with white head. Aroma is dank hops with oak shining through. Dry woody flavor with good hops and malt backbone. Very nice beer.

Hazy amber colour with a small off white head. Nice mild and complex aroma. Fruity, light hoppy and some wood. Full body with a really great balanced sweetness. Also a nice bitterness. Rich, but not overkill. Some plums in the flavour? Nice balanced sweetness with some wood and hopps in the flavour. Lovely beer! Smooth carbonation and very well hidden alcohol.

Amber. Lots of wood in the aroma and taste. Oaky, rich malt, prominent hops. Unique and the more you drink it the more it grows on you.

Pours a hazy amber orange with an off white headband sweet woody aroma. Taste is well balanced, of hops, fruits, malt, wood, and caramel with a bitter finish. Unique, good tasting brew.
