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.

Échantillonné du Extreme beer fest 2014: Première surprise du festival. Des notes de noix grillées, d’agrumes, galette de sarrasin, caramel dans une ipa qui me donne une impression de faire un retour dans le temps.

Meh.. this tastes like an old dipa. Really malty, grainy, sweet, oaky, and awkward. Reminds me of a barleywine at only 6.5%. Unique I guess but my rating may be a bit generous here.

Pour out of 64 oz growler, murky orange-copper with white head, aroma brought notes of big oak, lemon, hints of earthy malts with some caramel, nice orange peel as well with a hint of pine, grass in there. Taste is a mix of oak, lemon, vanilla, hints of caramel, toffee, hints of grass, finishing slightly spicy, earthy, bitter.

On draft at the the brewpub. Pours a hazy copper with an off white head. Nutty nose. Flavors of oak and sea salt with caramel notes. Hops are very subdued. Somewhat smoky finish. Interesting.

beernbourbon (1264) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Tap at Shorts. Pour is cloudy deep brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is full of rich caramel malt with light brown sugar and faint hop notes. Flavor is so rich yet smooth. Loads of rich caramel malt with hints of vanilla, and light brown sugar. Hops way in the background but provide a perfect balance to the sweetness. Tastes nothing like an IPA; more like a good Scottish ale. Really good beer.

On tap, really dark amber brown with an off white head, aroma is way different than I was expecting from the other ipas I’ve had from these guys, strong amount of oak and vanilla with a little bit of hops, the flavor has a nutty front end with some hops in the finish, again the oak is really heavy, not bad, just not what I was expecting.

Growler filled at brewpub 5 days ago. Appearance is very unique. A glowing murky brown. More than cloudy, looks almost solid, like a candle. Aroma of hops and wood. Taste is dominated by the wood. To me it tastes like more cedar than oak. Some carmel, nut, and a hint of floral and citrius. On the fence with this one. But the flavor is certainly intense.
