From the first taste of this IPA you will pick up the fresh oak character and Cascade hop bitterness that gives this beer a balanced finish. Pairs well with Asian or Mexican dishes, grilled meats and of course, IPA’s classic mate, Indian curry.

I have always liked the idea of an IPA aged on wood, and this was nice, session all the way .. . pours a deep gold, medium foam .. . light vanilla, light wood, peach, and a touch of spicy yeast .. . easy to put down .. . Nobody likes a know it all who sits around talking about their genitalia.

Hazy gold with light, white head / Faint citrus nose / Light to medium body, somewhat tart, minimal hop presence, with very bitter finish / Muted flavors of lemon with grapefruit, and dry hop notes, and no significant traces of wood aging / Sort of like a homebrewer’s first try.

Bottle from a recent trade. Murky light orange color with a pretty long lasting white head. Aroma is a little muted but definitely some citrus, grapefruit, a little spice and some wood. Flavor is smooth a little sweet and a touch of wood again. Finish is faintly bitter and on the medium side of the duration spectrum. Some alcohol on the flavor makes that a little off and then some band aidish sort of aromas are kicking around there for me too. The treatment here has muted the hops but in a subtle and complementary way.

Bottle. Grapefruit peel, pine, and wood aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with small head. Sweet orange/apple flavor initially with a strong pine and citrus peel finish. Very nice.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Golden yellow with a milky white embryonic fluid and an active macro-esque off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fruit, breadiness, oak and some toasted malt. Taste of oak, toasted malt, floral and citrus hops. Moderately thin and a touch dry, finishes peppery and remotely bitter.

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

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 20, 2010
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 (2609) - 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)

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.
