Taste is of pine, oranges, pineapple, biscuity malts, slight alcohol, honey and some resin. Very dry. Medium bodied and a touch sticky ... but really dry. FInishes quite bitter with light sweetness lingering and oaky dryness. Interesting and solid.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear amber with white head. Smell is smooth, very slightly hoppy and toasty and some oak and vanilla. Taste is initially oak and vanilla with smooth creamy mostly dry caramel flavor and light bitterness that lingers a bit. Doesn’t taste too much like an ipa but the oaked character is clearly evident and is enjoyable. This to me is like a light barley wine. Pretty good and nicely drinkable.
