COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Naughty 90 Oaked IPA was inspired by ocean bound, oak barreled brews of the 1800’s. 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

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.

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.

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.

Muddy brownish amber. Fair off-white head. Great mild roastiness, complex and really pleasant. Semi-sweet. Medium body. Super smooth. Mild smokiness. Very easy drinking. Unique. Awesome. Enjoyed my company and the beer more than my notes..

Draft pour at the source. Pours a hazy orange with a white head of foam. The aroma has toffee, orange, bread, cake. The taste is mildly bitter. Medium body with moderate carbonation.
