12th June 2009
Very slightly hazy amber beer. Frothy white head. Deep rich hops worthy of a DIPA but here the hop bitterness are beautifully rounded off by the soft woodyness and moderate vanilla sweetness provided by the oak. A little sweet aniseed in the finish. Nice!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber color. The classic American hop aroma (resiny and fruity) is made milder by a nice vanilla component. Good body strength; sweet toffee flavor, with some caramel and fudge; it has a good amount of fruity American hops, and a nice note of vanilla oak; the alcohol gives a pleasant warmth.
This beer successfully add the oak/vanilla component to a strong IPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle at the Euston Tap, big thanks to Chris! Pours a rich, amber-gold with a medium, filmy white head. Aroma holds hefty malts, mild pine, some caramel, slight toast, some ripe citrus. Ultra sweet flavor, pretty bitter with big resin, lots of caramel, sweet bread and cake. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish, sweet, sugary, rich malts, piney hops, resinous, some heavy ripe citrus, some florals. Outstanding. I love this.
