Location: Draft at Hay Merchant, 12/10/13

Aroma: The nose has some oak/wood, pine, plenty of citrus, and a little vanilla as well
Appearance: This one pours an orange color with a small white head on it
Flavor: The taste is quite similar, pine/citrus hop flavors, with an oak/wood layover on it
Palate: The body of this one is medium-plus, it has a bit of heat, and a nice, dry finish
Overall Impression: This one has a really cool barrel flavor to it, and I thought it worked nicely with the base beer. Well done.

A mature beer. What else do you want from me? Color? Clarity? Cindness? Its a good tasty imperial beer that you can drink a little bit of without getting sick.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 30, 2012
On tap at BTBF. Had forgotten what this was listed just as Empire IPA. Oak aged took me back for a second, but otherwise I was very pleasantly surprised. Pours with a hazed golden hue with a solid white head. Aroma is barrel, oak, really spicy wood, vanillin, and pretty hoppy with some citrus zest and citrus peel. Flavors are of melon, citrus, oak, spicy wood, vanillin and some decent tannins mixing with hop bitterness. Lively bubbles, dry, tasty!

rougeau13 (2016) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2012
Tap at Flying Saucer Sugar Land. Golden with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, chardonnay, and tropical fruit. The taste is rather mild, as though it was over-mellowed in the barrels. It tastes like fruit and wine a bit, but there’s virtually no bitterness, and none of the flavors are very bold. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Decent, and very drinkable, but not great, especially considering the price.

on tap at BTBF, clear golden pour with some fruity citrus aroma but mostly too boozy for me, lots of alcohol and too little hops

On tap at Houston Gingerman. Pours a clear gold with an amber hue and a white head that dissipates very slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of light fruit and flower with a bit of backing sweet grain and hay. Flavor starts with light fruit and flowers but finishes with light pine and oak.
