UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz Bomber. The beer pours to light amber color with a medium white head. The aroma has citrus, pine & some oak in the background. The taste has a medium body with a very slight bitter finish. The oak definitely comes on the back end & is balanced very well. Overall a very good DIPA.

If an onion bomb is aged in oak barrels, does it taste any better? Not particularly, Pours honey clear gold. Sweet and citrusy scent. Taste is a nondescript bitterness with earthiness added. Light medium and bubbly mouthfeel. Draft - Brick Store - Decatur, GA

Bomber. Dark amber with a off-white head. Grassy, herbal, light oak, and piney hop. Taste is bitter, but not overly. Medium body with a soapy feel. Unearthly seems ironic as it has an earthy/plant like flavor.

22 oz bottle for 8.50. I got the last one so it must be my lucky day. Pours a hazy orange/gold with a white head. Aroma is malts with a slight citrus hop in there as well at the end. Taste is wood, floral hops and only slightly malty. Spicy on the end with no lingering bitterness. Very complex IPA. Medium body, average carbonation. I’ve never had an oak-aged beer before but this is a great IPA. Not 11% like the description suggests. My bottle says 9.5%.

What a nice golden orange pour! Nice head that lingers. Aroma is fruity with some healthy hop backbone and some oak and wood in there as well. Taste is very rich and full bodied. Nice balance of hops with a hint of the oak barrel aging. Palate is strong and lingers with a warm finish rather than switching flavors many times. Absolutely delicious and a great twist on a double IPA!

Bottle, shared. Pours dark amber, clear, with minimal white head. Nose is bitter oranges, a little vanilla, damp wood, touch of astringency. Slick mouthfeel, more earthy citrus, sweet. Oak and British hops are a nice combo. Pushes the boundaries of what constitutes an "IPA" taste. Interesting though.

I sampled this at a beer tasting. It looks like a typical IPA, and it has pale ale aroma and flavor. However, the vanilla from the oak aging is also present in the aroma and flavor. Personally, I find that oak aging takes away from the quality of an IPA.
