Name: Gordon, Oak Aged
Date: March 10, 2007
Mode: Draft
Source: Brick Store Pub
Appearance: opaque orange, lasting creamy cream colored head, thick lace
Aroma: sweet grapefruit aroma arives before you pick up the glass, a hint of vanilla brings out the sweetness in the citrus, as it warms the oak aroma blossoms
Body: creamy body
Flavor: very creamy and smooth sweet caramel malt flavor with an abundance of hop flavor, an oaky aspect blends in nicely with the hop flavor and lasts through a long bitter finish, just a hint of vanilla in the background, the oak really complements the normal sticky sweetness to bring it in balance with the hops while still retaining some of the stickyness, perfect bitterness level

Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 8/10; Flavor: 8/10; Palate: 7/10; Overall: 17/20
Rating: 4/5.0

Date: June 19, 2007

Appearance: opaque rusty brown
Aroma: sweet caramel malt aroma with lots of sweet hops and light oak
Body: sticky sweet body
Flavor: the caramel and bourbon combine to create a perfectly balanced sweet malt flavor base, lots of sticky sweet pine blends with the malt, a hint of vinally brings out more sweetness
Overall: a pleasant surprise as I expected a bourbon IPA to be overwhelmed by the bourbon but this one balances nicely
