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!

Dark, clear reddish orange.Aroma is caramel, bread, tangerine and something...the oak, presumably. Flavor is caramel, lemony-orange, mildly sweet - and very subtly oaky. I love that I am not hit in the face with oak to prove that it is oak-aged. Very tasty!!

Aroma is sweet and thick with citrus and caramel edges. Appearance is a light red/brown with a small white head. Taste is also sweet and thick, leaving a bitter aftertaste. Palate is slightly thick. Overall a nice sweet, thick beer, but not too hoppy.

bottle pour. I really like the oak aged variation to this quality ipa - the palate improvements were the most noticeable to me

dfearnley (840) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
650mL bottle to flute Strong alcohol aroma with blood orange, wood, bourbon, bubble gum, currants. Ever so slightly hazy orangey red with a thin white long lasting ring. Taste is sweet initially and both sweet and bitter late. Full bodied, silky and very oily. It coats the tongue for a long lasting flavour. Then if you wait longer, a slight alcohol burn begins. This beer is wonderfully complex and is what I've come to expect from ST.

Ferris (2908) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle - Sweet oak is prominent although bourbon is not mentioned it is there. Tastes like it smells with only the slightest bitterness. Oak, burnt char and smooth. A great beer that aspires to a whiskey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I REALLY like this beer. I wasn't sure because all the barrel aged stuff I've had have been darker beers, but as an IPA this is really nice and smooth. - check out more at www.beeriam.com
