Pours a light amber with a thin head. Aroma of toasty nut, hops, wood and some yeast. Taste is a little fat with some wood, and yeast, not as hoppy as I would have thought. Pretty good, nice and complex, but I would have liked more hoppiness.

pression @ OTH.
Quelle bonne surprise. Aspect plus AP et brune que IPA.
Couleur cuivre et blanche.
Arôme, malt caramel,
Goût est superbe, quoique le cote houblon reste en retrait, je note beaucoup de malt, caramel, un aspect biscuité, chocolaté, cacao, houblon frais sans être trop amer, fini garde bien le cote caramel au beurre, épais et sirop avec une douceur qui est proche de la vanille probablement du aux morceaux de chêne.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper color with no head. Aroma of caramel, light chocolate and a bit of oak. Light oak and chocolate flavor. Semi-harsh bitterness. Seems tanic. More oak shows up after it warms. Tasty, but a bit oddly lacking in hop flavor and aroma.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear dark amber/orange pour a little carbonation and a sweet vanilla and hop aroma. Flavor starts out with creamy vanilla and malt, then some noticeable oak, bitter orange and some subtle lingering burnt sugar on the finish. This was good out of the bottle, but outstanding on tap when visiting the brewery during GABF this year.

Pours a hazed reddish copper color with a large sticky off white head. Aroma is hops, malts, oak, vanilla, caramel. Flavor is floral hops, biscuit, toasted caramel, quite a bit of oakiness, pine, citrus, some spices. A solid offering from Great Divide.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear dark orange with a small foamy beige head that has good retention. Aroma of piney and citrus hops with some wood and malt. Taste is very nice, more resinous hops than floral or sweet citrus. Bitter finish, kind of herby.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from Oak Tree. Poured a deep orange body with an average sized foamy beige head. Aroma is great with lots of wood and vanilla upfront followed up by old oranges and citrus rinds. Fuller bodied with lively carbonation and a medium duration on the lightly bitter aftertaste. Flavors of citrus rind, wood, vanilla, wax, and more wood. Realy really good stuff.
