75% American Red Ale, 25% Ale Aged in American Oak Barrels. A brash American Red ale, dripping with citrusy Centennial hops, mellowed by a touch of oak. Aromas of toffee, citrus, crushed herbs, vanilla and fresh-sawn oak. Complex!

Loakal pours a dark red color. The head on this beer is crazy as you can see. It took over my glass. A really good mixture here of hops and oak. Hops give off a citrus, grapefruit and pine aroma. On the other side is the oak and a hint of caramel. Really nice and inviting. The taste is pretty complex for a red and has a lot going on. It’s still nicely hopped and it gives off a good amount of bitterness. But there’s aspects I didn’t pick up in the aroma. Vanilla, earthiness, and spice. Then bring in the nice backbone of oak and caramel and you have the a perfect marriage of all the ingredients. Nothing gets in the way of each other and they all come through nicely. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick and sticky.

On tap @ The Bruery. Cloudy deep red with a small beige head. Aroma of dark caramel, citrus, oak and tropical fruit. Flavor is rich, sweet caramel malt, bitter hops and a slight oak presence. Medium body with average carbonation and a bitter finish. I like this, sounds like too much going on but all the flavors blend well.

Pours a dark golden orange/apricot color with a 1.5 finger white head that settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind. Slightly earthy aroma with lots of sweet malt notes, bready yeast and subtle funk.  Hints of toffee, caramel, biscuit and light fruit.  Not as hoppy as expected. Medium bodied with a dry, resinous hop presence that lingers over sweeter notes into a dry finish.   More hops than nose suggests. Subtle creamy texture with some faint citrus that gives off some sweetness to balance the  malt presence.  Hints of caramel, toffee and bready yeast but hops are still prominent.  . Decent amount of dry bitterness but still well balanced with above average drinkability.

Bottle @ home. Fairly clear, reddish brown appearance with a light tan head. Toasty, caramel malty, mildly woody, moderately piney/citrusy hoppy aroma. Creamy caramel malty, fairly bitter, pretty big piney/citrusy hoppy, mildly oaky flavor. Easy drinking but nothing too exciting.

Dogbrick (10714) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Sample at Bruery Provisions. Pours a copper-amber color with a medium off-white head that burns away slowly to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and citrusy hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, citrus, hops and a bit of spruce. The finish is malty with a slightly woody aftertaste. Decent overall.

cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Pours deep amber with a slight haze. Large off-white head with good retention and lace. The aroma doesn’t pop right of the bat. Traditional malty amber notes is all I got on the nose. As it warms it improves: Floral, oak, and even some melon. Quite a bit of oak actually. Light+ sweet, light+ bitter flavors. Medium body and texture, surprisingly soft carbonation, and a grassy hopped dry finish.

I had high hopes for this beer before I tried it. It is well crafted, and I love the idea to barrel age a red ale. But I felt that the dry hopping is too much of a contradicting flavor for this beer. But again. Well crafted

NobleSquirrel (3439) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a nice amber-red with an offwhite head. The nose is nice and fresh, light berry notes, caramel and some orange zest. The oak is very subdued. On tasting, the oak is a bit more present, lending notes of vanilla and white pepper. More soft toffee and a balancing bitterness. Not overly complex but well put together. Solid.

egajdzis (5860) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Hazy red amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus fruits, grass, floral hops, vanilla, and wood. Taste of toffee, caramel, citrus, grapefruit, some vanilla, and light spices, and lighter wood tannins.
