COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our version of an American Pale Ale. First taste of this IPA and you immediately pick up light oak and hop bitterness which gives this beer a nice balanced finish. Oak IPA pairs well with spicy foods or a nice seafood dish.

sample at round barn. very hoppy, light yellow hue. Poured out, not my style. Tasted oak which is strange for an IPA.

Tasted 8/20/10. 12oz bottle. Relatively clear and filtered. Moldy off-white head. Aromas of flat lemon lime soda and subtle woody vanilla notes. Medium to full bodied with a rather good melding of flavors. The mild and chalky candy citrus hops mix well with the oaky vanilla creaminess. Throw in a bright splash of crisp effervescence and you got yourself quite a nice surprise! Neither the hops nor the wood overwhelms the palate, but instead they are well blended and very complimentary. Well done!

MrBunn (2485) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2010
Bottle. Pours a lovely clear orange with a thin head of suds and aromas of soapy citrus and a little oak. Flavor is much more impressive. Lots of sweet tropical and citrus with a decidedly oaky backdrop that peeks through from time to time. This is fairly sugary for an IPA, but the fruit flavors work well with the sweetness and the oak and just a hint of resin/pine balance things out. Very nice.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - JUN 20, 2010
12oz bottle from shawnm213, thanks Shawn. Rating #26. Darkish yellow/gold pour with a real big fluffy head and medium lacing. Aroma is pretty much citrus to me, I can faintly detect a little oak but I don’t think I would have noticed if I wasn’t looking for it. Light bitterness and fairly smooth with the hops sticking on the palate for a good amount of time. (1264)

MeadMe (1323) - Riverview, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
A: Pours a hazy orangish amber hue. Nice tall head with a real foamy cap that lingers for the duration. Large chunks of lace. S: Not alot going on here. Hints of caramel, pine, and light citrus. T: Same as aroma. Light sweet malts, with hints of pine and citrus. No oak at all. M: Medium in body, smooth, good carbonation. D: Like the beer just okay.

JaBier (4989) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2010
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear gold pour with a big white head. Oaky nose with pine and grass hop character. Interesting flavor that starts off with spicy hops and turns to light smoke and finishes piney. Kind of odd, and not really swaying me into the camp who thinks oaking IPAs is a good idea.

Ibrew2or3 (7055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Courtesy of askdrtodd. Thanks Todd. It pours a brilliant clear gold with thin white head. The aroma is mild, a bit floral, some sweet sugariness and flowery perfume counter. The taste begins bright with bitter hops. It then begins to pick up perfumy floral hops with some lingering bitterness into the after taste. I get no wood treatment here at all. Decent IPA.

SrSilliGose (3264) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 9, 2010
tap. pours a clear orangelike color with a small white head. aroma of caramel, pine, grass, and grapefruit. The oak isn’t terribly noticeable, but I was also pretty drunk when I had this beer. Good beer though. Sorry for the shitty review.

WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Bottle. A slightly hazy golden color pour with a medium sized long lasting offwhite head , leaving spotty and jagged lacing behind, light carbonation , very nice looking beer. Aroma is hard to pin down it’s very light lemon, and lime zest with a hint of caramel , the oak is there but very faint . Flavor is a light toasty pale malt right up front and then fades to a piny . resin type hop , earthy , with the oak sitting way in the background , medium bitterness at first with a long bitter hop finish , this beer seems to change flavors 3 times in your mouth , nice . A crisp clean mouthfeel , with a light to medium body . Not sure why but this is way better than I had expected Nice job Round Barn . If you get a chance try Round Barns Cranberry wine We love it .

Silphium (3178) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2009
Translucent, hazy medium orange body, thin clumping off-white head. Nose of grapefruit rind, pine, peach, sugars, and a little bit of tannic oak. Bitter body with abundant pine and citrus rind, backed by biscuity malt and some peachy sweetness. Oak is subdued. Bitter, lingering finish. This is a pretty good beer, and I am glad the brewery ditched the overpriced 750 mL bottles in favor of the more affordable 12-oz alternative.
