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.

Bottle. Strong fresh oak/pine, toffee malt, and orange peel aroma. Hazy dark amber with small head. Moderately sweet orange toffee malt, light astringent dry oak, and moderately bitter orange peel/pine flavor. Nice body and balance. Very good - unique, unlike any other IPA Iíve had. Oak definitely dominates the character of this beer.

Aroma of oak, coffee, some pine. Reddish brown cloudy, little to no head. Taste is oak, sweet caramel, pine, fruit, orange. Medium mouth feel. Kind of an odd duck yet interesting. Unique. Not a typical IPA.

AWISLguy (2371) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 31, 2015
650ml bottle from Casanova in Hudson. Pours an orangey brown with no head. Aroma has toasty malts, nuts, tangy fruits, oak, and sweet fruits. Taste is of nuts, stone fruits, oak and toasty cereal. Medium to full bodied with some alcohol presence. Finishes oaky, nutty sweet. Oaky. Toasty. Much more sweet than bitter. Not enough of my thing. 13.4

jackl (6814) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle from Casanova, Hudson. Deep chestnut reddish pour with a modest off-white head. Strong woody oak nose. Interesting malt character. Some red berry and light cocoa. Root beer and a bit of lemon peel. Flavor is initially dry and moderately bitter. Toffee, oak wood and orange on the finish. Leafy hop accents. Toasty cereal. Buoyant body, active carb keep things from being heavy. Interesting stuff, especially if you like oak.

arkurzynski (2185) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Brilliant orange brown bourbon color. Huge toasted oak with vanilla, toasted nut, maple, caramel, and almost a coffee tinge. Flavor is more big toasty oak, vanilla, toffee, nutty biscuit and some hops in the finish. Lingering tart oak, vanilla, and toffee. More hints of acidic coffee. Hops hidden in the oak. Wow. What different beer. Complex, if not a bit over the top. Worth a go, but as stated before, donít expect an IPA.

crossovert (10986) - Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2015
650ml bottle. Shocked to find this is an ipa because it tastes fine, like toasty vanilla caramel.

phaleslu (9249) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2015
22 oz. bottle via trade (I think; having trouble remembering how I acquired it, maybe Johnís Grocery?). Anyway, it pours a hazy dullish orange with a small eggshell white head that settles into a ring while leaving spots of lace and wisps of film. So much oak here, in both aroma and flavor. Also nuts, leaves, sweet and toasty malts, and earth. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a toasty, nutty, oaky, somewhat bitter mouthfeel. I donít know what itís like within the first few weeks, but after a month or two this seems to be an oak bomb. A good one, if you like that sort of thing.

Tap at Toppling Goliath. Murky brown pour with minimal head. Slight hop aroma, smells like an amber ale. Taste is more smokey wood. Nice finish.

Bomber courtesy of Kermis, shared at October THT. Thin creamy off white head. Very hazy amber pour. Vanilla bitterness in the aftertaste
