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.

Bottle. Pours lighter amber/gold with a small ring of white lace. Aromas of piney hops, bready malts, and a nice wood note. The flavor is well balanced and damn drinkable. The oak steals the show for me and i wish it was turned down just a tad. Nice IPA overall, but tuff to drink more than one.

Pours a hazy darker gold with a booming eggshell head that mercifully settles down eventually and leaves some soapy, foamy lace. Nose involves toasted oak, vanilla, butter, some spice, but like pie spices, not hop spices, perhaps some overripe fruit, some dusty stuff. Fairly sweet, fairly more bitter. Medium toward full bodied, somewhat oily and slippery, fair action, finishing dry and toasty. Not a bad brew, though the buttery-ness bothers me. I get it, but I donít like it. Iíve had other oaked IPAs I enjoyed more. This to me is more oak beer than hop beer.

Too bad this beer missed it with the carbonation. Great oak flavor, but goes away bubbling in my mouth.

hotstuff (4142) - Indiana, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Rated on 12-27-2010. This bottled beer has a medium sized semi-fizzy off-white head that mostly diminishes, golden transparent body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The aromas are malt, earthy, pine, citrus, and grapefruit hops. The taste is lightly bitter, malty, citrus and pine hops. This beer has a dry finish. The mouth feel is lively and somewhat aggressive. This beer is light-medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not overly hoppy or overly bitter tasting which is nice for us that are not hop heads.

BrownALEx (275) - Portland, Michigan, USA - FEB 2, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2014 Wood actually is the most dominant part of this beer. From the slight smell to the great wood taste, this beer is intriguing. Great to have one beer at a time.

TheBear11D (257) - Michigan, USA - DEC 11, 2013
The Round Barn Oaked IPA pours a tangerine yellowish orange with a large foamy off-white head that lasts far too long and appears to be greatly over-carbonated. The aroma is citrus mostly. The flavor is citrus and the wood is noticeable. Overall this beer is below average.

DrSilverworm (6601) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to FlandersNed. No date found on bottle. Pours a totally hazy orange golden gradient. Big airy rocky white head, so big I have to pause to pour the rest of the bottle. Smooth, crisp, kind of soft, sharp carbonation, with a more dry finish. Tastes possibly infected. Light tart, and big active carbonation and head hint at that. Doesnít ruin the beer, though. If itís going to be old, might as well be infected, I guess. Bigger body. Moderate bitter taste, light tart. Kind of a soapy, lemony, citrusy hop aroma. Donít get much oak here. Seems kind of unnaturally bright in the aroma (from infection). Overall, just OK at best. A beer that has gone infected but not totally awful, still kind of works with some bitter citrusy hops combined with citrusy funky sour notes, and some tannic. Whatever about this accidental, probably oldish combo, though. Iíd rather try beers fresh, as they are intended. Had this brewery dated their bottles, Iíd have a lot more insight as to just where this beer was at. Please, every brewery, date your products (if you care about peopleís opinions)

burg326 (3768) - Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2013
12 ounce bottle poured a copper color with a Romaís of citrus, oak, wood, and some light bitterness. Flavors are light citrus followed by some oak in the aftertaste. Not as good as CCB white oak, but still a very solid IPA aged on wood. Kudos to these guys, would love to try more beer from them.

Bottle thanks to mikem409. Loud hiss upon opening. Pours a hazy orange. Nose of fresh cut white wood and hops. Citrus like hops. Flavor is a harsh woodiness up front. Tastes like licking a fir. Piney. But not in an overly pleasant way like simcoe hops. Not a huge fan. ---Rated via intercellular device

jgb9348 (4781) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Slightly hazy light copper coloured body with hints of orange and gold with a nice and slightly soapy tan head, about 3 centimetres tall. Aroma of pale malt, tons of bright grassy and herbal hops, alcohol, peaches and a small bit of oak. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour shows the floral and perfumey hops with a kick of alcohol at the end, some lighter grass flavours and a oak finish that shows the dry characteristics of this nicely. Aftertaste shows some more oak, dry herbs, sage, lemongrass and some very perfumey notes at the end. Overall, a nice and fresh beer with some good characteristics and a solid yet complex flavour profile for the style. Dry, assertive and grassy show well here. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Merchantís in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$2.39 sampled at home in Washington on 24-October-2013.

valpoaj (634) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Pours a reddish gold - decent sized white head that holds on for a bit. Aroma is generally foresty hops with some wood notes, hint of pepper. Flavor is decent...the wood is definitely there alongside resinous hops. The hops arenít particularly hard hitting, however. Palate appropriate for the style. The oak aging is nice, but would have liked a bit more robust of a hop presence (or more of a malt presence)...decent, but not great.
