DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 17, 2010
Bottle: Pours a hazy redwood liquid forest, the head atop had adequate lacing capabilities, an off white, almost light peach hue, and a dense yet somewhat thin formation. The nose exhibited significantly ripe fruits, bending in the direction of apricot and peach with a light essence of orange and a thin cloud of baby powder. If the wood has any influence, itíd be the slight whisper of mustiness, but overall, the impact of any apparent wood aging, at least compared to both the french oak and acasia versions, is minimal. That being said, the vibrant ripeness of the fruit accents makes for a pleasant experience nonetheless. When flavors hit the tongue, the juiciness is first detected..peach and apricot again, enough sweetness to bring out some vividness, and arguable enough to start to overshadow nelsonís bitter side...unless weíre speaking of the finish..which is where nelsonís bitter half shows just a peak of his existence. Overall...The american oak influence doesnít seem to be much of an influence at all here..itís a fairly straight forward nelson hop beer with maybe a smidgen too much sweetness covering any bite that the hops may have.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUN 10, 2010
Corked bottle. A hazy pale amber beer with a latge, frothy, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly to moderately malty and moderately hoppy with notes of toasted grains, grapefruit, tropical fruits, vanilla, wood and alcohol. The flavour is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, very long finish with medium to heavy bitterness, lightly to moderately alcoholic. The oak character is well integrated and balanced, Very tasty.

deardenise (4) - venarotta, ITALY - JUN 10, 2010 does not count
belonging to new updated version of a modern-sized IPA this beer is an intersting mixture of what wood and beer can ask eachoter.fruity-citrus peel, cedar pulp, mediterranean chinotto - subdued to a rough hop character mitigated by the oak tannins towards a long, still a bit astringent final.very ipa, very modern

randy1301 (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
375ml bottle.Pours a very dark copper/orange with a huge foamy off white head.Nose is that typical funky almost urine smell that comes from the Nelson Sauvin hop with a hint of wood as the beer warms.Taste is citrus hop up front with creamy malts throughout.There is the essence of American oak that I pick up at times but not overpowering.I am shocked that this beer is 100+ IBUís.I dont get that at all.I really enjoyed this beer.This is a very smooth and very clean IPA but I think I hoped for a bit more.....

Bottle at home ... amber ... big white head ... soft fruity peach ... little oxidisation in nose ... soapy fruity hop ... i think i might have kept this a little too long ... huge amount of mellon ...

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2010
(37.5cl thanks to bu11zeye). Pours a cloudy gold with white fizzy head. Aroma of nice citrus, farmhouse, light tartness, wood. Flavor is very much the same, is dry, woody and a bit of grapefruit hoppiness. Mouth feel is medium body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, Tasty!

Embrouille (2830) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 1, 2010
Bottled 375ml. Ordered from www.bierkompass.de. Decent-sized head. A complex brew with a great hop profile. Sticky spotty lace. I think the barrel aged components donít add to my appreciation of this beer.

Bottled. The aroma has citrus, some grapes, honey, yeast. Bit hazy, copper-golden coloured brew with a medium, lasting head and bubbles on the glass. The taste is little sourish, bitter, has grapefruits, some woody tones, citrus and yeast. Medium bodied. I enjoyed this one.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a hazy deep golden color with a small off white bubbly head. Notes of lemons, white grapefruit, sugar syrup, and nuts. Medium to long finish. The american oak imparts additional notes of honey and smoke.
