Bottle. Crisp amber hue, thick offwhite head sustains, brilliant clarity. Nose is a blend of citrus hops, carmel-toffee, and slight oak-vanilla. Flavor is woody tones balanced out by caramel-crystal malts, high bitterness with low-med hop flavors of citrus and resin, hints of some darker chocolate, finishes sweet. Medium body, moderate carbonation, thick texture. A full flavored and layered amber ale with good wood accenting, easy drinking at 6.9%.

In short: An sharp IPA-ish beer like no other
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh 2 months after bottling. Bottle sent to me by kegbear, thanks a lot Craig.
The look: Partly dark golden body topped by a rocky medium beige head with good retention
In long: Strong hoppy nose blending fresh oranges, other citrus fruits and freshly cut wood. Taste has plenty of citrus fruits (oranges and grapefruits mainly) swimming on a rich but not too sweet caramelized malt backbone. Some orange peels, some freshly cut oak, some pine needles. An overall light spicy sensation that seems to be coming from the wood. This beer is very sharp and bright. It probably has to do with the oak but everything seems to come out very bright. Not something to age for sure. I really liked this beer, more than I expected. It is very original and I was probably in the mood for something exactly like that. I opened the right bottle. Sometimes I can just hear a beer in my cellar call my name. But most of the time they just ask for Gary. Who the fuck is Gary?

(750ml bottle from Provisions Store). Pours dark copper with chunky 2 finger off-white head. Aroma has wood, orange and lemon pledge (perfumey). Taste has strong wood flavor, but the hops aren’t as prominent as I thought they’d be. Medium bodied with a slick/creamy texture. Finish is smooth. Mouthfeel on this is fantastic. It just coats the mouth. I’m not a huge fan of oaked beers, but this one’s pretty good.

Poured into a tulip, brownish amber with big fluffy tan head that stays around for a long time. Aroma of big piney and grapefruit hops, toasted caramel malt, and fresh oak. Taste is mildly sweet and nutty, with medium bitterness. Crisp and smooth mouthfeel. Very enjoyable and different beer!

Thanks to daknole. Bottle pours amber with a khaki head. Aroma shows notes of caramel, strawberry, oak, and light citrus. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of vanilla, toffee and sage. Overall body is moderate, soft, and finishes lightly bitter. Extremely well balanced and interesting.

Huge chunky pour, had to wait forever to get this in the glass, but once it was in there, a beauty. Definate oak in the nose, but some stong hops as well. Just to put it out there, not much of a fan of the oak-aged beers yet, but this may change me. It wasn’t overpowering with the oak, just a suttleness that adds a ton of character to the 6.9% brew, which is welcomed compared to many of the other over the top oakey brew on the market. This won me over on drinkablility, very easy to put down, and enjoy all of the flavors, and not be worried about being ripped, good stuff.

Shared at Pre Sex. This beer was candy for me, delicious candy. Pours a light clean red with a mild chill haze and a wispy sandstone tan head. Nose is extremely floral and ephemeral with a wonderful candylike sweetness. Grapefruit zest and brown sugar....Flavor is extremely floral with a definitive rose character and notes of citrus rind, caramel, and vanilla. Light spicy palate. Me rikey.

Lightly cloudy reddish pour, big huge puffy off white head. Citrus aroma hits first, followed by some spices, light toothpick notes, unripe apricot, and some caramel. Flavor has some carraway notes, caramel, citrus peel, sawdust, resin, golden raisins. Not bad at all.

750ml – From a Friend
Big reddish brown color, hazy with a tan head. This was sweet and with lots of yeasty aroma. Light barrel flavors this also brought out some sweet candy sugar flavors and fruit like qualities. Lots of vanilla in the flavor and finish which was very dry. A very nice beer.
