COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oak aged IPA

Our Silver medal winner at the 2012 World Beer Cup placed in oak barrel. The oak flavors give the IPA even more complexity with vanilla flavors to go along with the citrus hop character.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - JUL 14, 2011
on tap at az wine 2/21/11. hazy yellow with a huge white fluffy head. as i drank farther into the keg the cloudier it got! it smells like creamed grapefruit... if that is possible...mixed with notes of cedar, vanilla,spice, orange juice, woody earthy hops and grain. the flavor is the same.... VERY dry palate with addition notes of pith, wood and herbaceous hops. it has a great tart finish and lingering aftertaste of grapefruit and various other citrus pulps. it’s medium bodied with very soft carbonation and incredible sessionability. on a side note, bob had this keg laying around for about three weeks. every day i would pull a pint out and every day the beer seemed to get progressively more sour/tart....cool. 9/4/9/5/18/4.5+

On tap. A blend of barrel aged IPA and new IPA according to Doug Odell who was at the tapping. Huge grapefruit aroma. Flavor was that of citrus and wood, not overly bitter, very well balanced. Nice creamy head. Well conditioned beer.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On tap @ AZ Wine during RBWG 2011 - Pours a hazy amber color with a good size white head that lasted to the end. Which didn’t take long. Nice lacing. Aroma is big time citrus. Mostly tangerine with a hint of wood. Flavor is the same. The finish is so smooth. No astringent aftertaste at all. Medium body. This was probably my favorite beer the whole RBWG weekend. Just awesome!

sampled during the 2011 RBWG weekend on tap at AZWine, pours bright hazy orange with a pilowy white head. Aroma is huge citrus, tangelos, fresh orange juice, sweet clemontines. Flavor is much the same, hay and pale grains with huge citrus notes both sweet and bitter. Stunning.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2011
Draft at RBWG 2011 at AZ Wines & Spirits. Pours hazy gold, thick off-white head, great lacing. Nose is creamy grapefruit and oak, fresh orange ring, some woody vanilla. Flavours of grapefruit, navel oranges, earth, vanilla, oak, spice. Initially had this pegged at a 3.7, but this one grows on you. Worth the 30 minutes to explore properly...

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Draft at the 2011 Small Batch Fest. Pours a dark, hazy golden tangerine/orange color with golden orange hues and a two finger frothy, soapy white headthat has excellent retention, eventually fading into a lasting cap . Chunks of soapy lace left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with subtle funk. earhty oak vanilla, sweet citrus and tropical fruit. Mango, pineapple and orange peel with a strong barrel presence. This gies off some toasted oak but takes away slightly from the other notes. Slightly earthy and tart with subtle puckering flavor and an odd combo of earthy oak, vanilla, cream and sweet tropical/citrus notes. Slightly dry with an earthy pine presence complimented by toasted oak and countered by cream and tropical/citrus fruit. Hints of papaya, pineapple, mango and orange peel with a dry, earthy finish. Very good!

Tap at AZ Wine. Hazy gold pour with a big lasting head. Aroma of grapefruit and oranges, pineapple, wood and grassy hops. Flavor is much the same. Lots of fruit and wood and very little bitterness. Really good stuff!

beerbaaron (1341) - Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2014
Draft. Clear bright amber with lasting off white head. Light sour, especially in aroma. Wet wood. Citrus. Lemon. Quite smooth. A little cobwebby. Mild dryness. Certainly a hybrid beer. Unique and very enjoyable.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2011
On tap @ AZWine. Pour is hazy orange-amber with a white head. Aroma is big grapefruit showing distinct notes of pink and cocktail grapefruit. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, and a touch of earth. Someone called it perfectly when they said creamed grapefruit. Overall body is moderate, sticky, and finishes with some well balanced bitterness.
