22oz bottle: Autumnal orange and gold colored pour with a smallish white head that fades. Beautifully blended nose that encapsalates the hops, malt and oak. The dry hopping really helps balance the heavy oak notes. The body is a heavier build, but not cloying. Spritzy carbonation and really fresh hops keep the flavors bouncing off the tongue. A very nice blend of citrus, vanilla, caramel, etc.

The body has a deep amber color which has good clarity and visible carbonation. On top sits an average off white colored head that slowly fades and makes some cool lace rings on the glass after each sip. In the nose I pick up an intensely rich mix of malt and hops. There are deep golden raisin and caramel notes from the malt and deep resiny pine like hops back by some citrus notes and hints of oak wood. On the tongue there is a mixing of sweet caramel notes, raisin bread, resiny hops, pine, citrus, orange peel and in hint of oak. Hop bitterness slowly builds more and more towards the finish but still brings some sweetness to keep things juicy. It’s full bodied, bold and heavy or chewy on palate. Carbonation is soft and just keeps things from getting too sticky.

22 ounce bottle. Hazy dark amber color. Rich, earthy, sweet malt aroma. Sweet toasted malt flavor, with a slight noticeable woody character? Sweet corn syrup malt flavor with a touch of resiny hops in mid- taste. Finishes sweet with a subtle spicy hop aftertaste. Not discernable notice of the 11% alcohol.

Rated from notes taken 22 Jun 2011, Southern Tier Beer Tasting -- Big fan of the Oak. Probably the first beer I had oaked that I really picked up the differences the age and oak contributed.

Aroma of bourbon, wood, pine, hints of citrus. Taste of bourbon, wood, pine, alcohol. A very solid DIPA barrel aged. Well done.

MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2014
Backlog. Bottle @ Green Lion Inn 2011, aged for about 12 months in average conditions. The aging took a toll, still a solid beer as always from ST.

Plenty of hops, as well as a good bourbon taste. Pretty much what you’d expect from Southern Tier.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste strong, pine, sweet. I thought this was so so. I would skip this and stay with the Un'earthly that is not oak aged. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark pour from 22oz bottle at monkey paw. Dark orange with whey head. Bitter and fruity taste. Whiskey, vanilla, citrus, grapefruit notes. Very good

A very fruity ipa with a nice whiskey infused finished. Not much I a smell and pours a reddish yellow in color. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dansac (89) - Loa Angeles, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Terribly unbalanced. The oak just takes over, leaving the aromatic qualities of the hop lost in the vine. Malt forward, very boozy, and cloudy in the glass. Found it tremendously inferior to their regular 2x IPA, and most of their other stuff, which is generally of a very high caliber.
