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, IPAís classic mate, Indian curry.

hopscotch (10522) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and golden with a huge, rocky, white head that has great staying power. The aroma is soapy with a fruity note of pear, mildly spicy hops, and a nuance of white oak. Medium to full-bodied with tingly carbonation. Tastes better than it smells. Trends bitter, but not by much. Excellent balance overall. Full flavored, but not rough around the edges. Nice toasty malts, but still hop and yeast-driven.

bottle - Copper pour, smells of oak and citrus hops. It has an oak forward flavor with moderate to strong bitterness and some citrus character. Itís pretty good though in this case Iím not sure the oak is my favorite flavor addition.

BeerBunker (962) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours orange with a foamy white head. Aroma is of wood, hops, and caramel. But mostly wood. Taste is of wood, lots of wood. There is also a slight caramel character. The hop flavor is buried beneath the wood, and comes out more on the finish. Lingering taste of juicy hops. Itís not bad, but itís nothing special.

Sampled from a bottle, this ale had a dark orange hazy pour and presented a huge white head that was rocky and had some hills here and there, that was from too much carbonation, the nose had aromas of light toasted malt with floral and grass hops, some orange and lemon fruit, wood notes, faint bread, and a little bread and fruit sweetness, it had flavors of light toasted malt with citrus hops, some light orange fruit, and a little sweetness, the finish had a light hop bitterness and a good bit of carbonation that gave a bite on the tongue, there was a little off-ness in the flavor and this beer could have been infected or the over carbonation gave this beer a bite that was unflattering or both, the mouth feel was light and very fizzy, it had lots of carbonation that was a bit much, unfortunately, this beer suffers from too much carbonation and was not enjoyed, I had a little trouble finishing this beer, I will try a bottle at a latter date to see if it brewed properly.

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 (4729) - Fort Wayne, 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 (394) - 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.
