3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a hazy amber with 1 finger of frothy off-white head, nice lacing.
S - Toasted caramel, strong bready aroma, pine hops, savory oak.
T - Robust toasted caramel, hints of oak, a kiss of sweet but smoky fruit, leafy hops, the malt and oak marry together very well. Pine resin starts creeping in to meld with the oak and lock in the dry bitter finish
M - Medium body, lush feel.
Well done. Very balanced. The oak accents the malt very well, the hops have enough bitterness to round out the density of the malt.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy copper-golden with an antique white head. Pungent aroma. Caramel malt, citrus, oak, and oaky vanilla. Soft, nearly cottony mouthfeel. A lot of vanilla flavor got picked up from the oak. Caramel malt comes through prominently as well and sweetens the beer to balance the bitter and citrus contribution of the hop profile.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Mellow citrus and pine aroma. Hazy copper body with sediment floating around. Topped with a thin skim coat off-white head. Bold bitter bite with a citrusy malt taste. Has a little zest but finishes on the cleaner side. It has a style that is neither west coast, east coast or English IPA for that matter. In other words it has a more distinct taste than most in this category.

Bottle. This is a nice heavy IPA with a slightly softer edge which is a result of the wood aging i assume.
