Poured from a bottle into a fluted snifter. Dark amber appearance with a medium white head that laces a bit. Smells sweet from the oak and malt with a hoppy back bone. Taste is huge citrusy hops followed by a sweet caramel finish. Some oak in the back finish. oak definitely mellowed this beer out in a good way.

Pours a very attractive amber / bourbon color. Nose reveals complexity: smelled like a faint bourbon, oak, and some raisins - you can tell this is not an "easy drinking" beer. Taste follows the nose - definitely some bourbon notes, with bitter hops and oak. Good - but not an every day kind of beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice but subtle flavors. Not very aggressively hopped for a double IPA. No head retention, very light oak flavor, you have to look for it to know it’s there.

Denverdiv (30) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Pours with little to no head, very minimal lacing. Honey and raisin bouquet, the oak overpowers anything else. I have had much better oak aged IPA's. -To IPA is to be.

3/1/2013. DIPA? Much closer to Barley Wine. Pours orange-green with a thin white head. Aroma is very malty; caramel, fruit, grapes, earth, wood. Taste is fruity, dark fruits, vanilla, caramel, vanilla, a hint of smoke. Little lacing. Mouth feel is chewy. Really fruity and malty; the hops is not the star here but still well-balanced. I really enjoyed this.

Sweet, hoppy nose. Pours a deep Carmel color. Head fades quickly. Bitter but nicely balanced with sweet woodsy flavor. Interesting!
