COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Naughty 90 Oaked IPA was inspired by ocean bound, oak barreled brews of the 1800ís. Packed with hops on a 90-minute schedule, uniquely malted, then aged on a bed of oak, this IPA delivers a taste that is both innovative and timeless.

2014 vintage - 6.2% abv

Pours a dark hazy brown with a red tint to it and small khaki head. Aromas of burnt and smokey wood, leather, vanilla, caramel, and sugars. Taste followed the nose perfectly. Oak aging qualities were definitely present with a smoked taste and feel. I didnít really get any hop presence from this, mainly the smoke and leather were dominant. Had a lasting bitterness and full bodied. This was one of the more unique beers Iíve tried.

Tap. Shadowy, mahogany hue. Heavyweight oak aroma of burnt brown sugar, toffee, vanilla. High acid bitterness offers its citrus pith and fragrant oil. This would masquerade as a thing of considerable size. The flavor corroborates this, with enormous barrel-driven qualities generally outlasting the fervent hop sensations. The malt gets gritty, and the bitterness lightly abrasive. Firm body is both syrupy and crunchy with high carbonation. The finish is long and distantly sweet, though earth and leather linger on in the final impression.

Bottle pours clear amber with big dark tan head. Aroma is sweet malts, pine, and oak. Taste is mainly sweet toasted malt and dry bitter oak on the finish, interesting beer.

boooooooooooooooooooootle. strong vanilla and tannins in the nose. very woody. minimal to moderate hops, not aggressive. Pour is a light red to amber color, minimal off white head. taste is moderately hoppy, piney and citrus. with a touch of the wood. just the tip. pretty good stuff, but I wish I drank this fresher, although the wood seems like it would have been a bit harsh, as it still is a tad astringent.

Bottle from the source, shared by RussianDragon. Many thanks. The beer is amber with a thick, tan head. Aromas of bready malts, oak, alcohol, vanilla. The flavor is more akin to a light barleywine than an IPA. Little hop presence, with some chocolate notes and brown ale character. An interesting beer, but I have yet to find an oak aged IPA that I have truly enjoyed.

Bottle from Joe. Thanks buddy. Pours dark amber cited with a half finger khaki head. Aroma of bready malts, herbal tea, chocolate, hay, oak, but no hop presence here really. The flavor is a big malty malt bomb, some chocolate mixed in there, herbal tea notes, dry finish with a little bitterness but not the IPA hop type of bitterness, oak, a bit of caramel. Rich body, dry finish, medium carbonation. Anything but an IPA really, but not a sweet malty mess either. Sort of a very dry barleywine (not quite the hop presence for an American style barleywine , and a good bit of chocolate like a brown ale). Maybe we can call this a session winter warmer! Pretty good, but definitely not the expected flavors here.

djd07 (3868) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle thanks to Minh. Pours a cloudy amber with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong nutty malt and oak. Medium mouthfeel with strong bready malt, oak, caramel, resin hop coming thru in the finish. Good.

RussianDragon (514) - - AUG 31, 2014
22 oz bottle purchased from Toppling Goliath. Pours a clear dark caramel brown with light passing as a reddish orange hue. Aroma is roasted malt, grain, overall an aroma reminiscent of English brown ales. There is very little to no hop character in the aroma at all. Flavor is about the same - a sweet, oaked mild brown ale character of malt, grainy notes, and virtually no hop presence. Thin to medium bodied, soft to moderate carbonation, and a grainy yet lightly citrusy finish with a certain note of light oxidation. Not a bad beer, but drinks more like a brown ale than an IPA.

Bottle shared at tasting. Oaky and woody throughout. Fruits in finish and taste and very smooth. Unique and very nice to drink.

Roasty, sweet aroma. Very smooth taste. A little smoky, roasty, very well rounded.
