Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of fiulijn. Pours an opaque black with a small off-white head. Roasty nose, a little cocoa. Medium body, heavy roast and a massive, rough and unsophisticated bitterness with close to no aromatic qualities. Very harsh. Not how I like my IPA’s! 230213

Oakes (14076) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2015
I had a dry-hopped cask version at Kettle Valley. Dark brown with a full creamy head. Piney, minty and chocolatey aroma. Quite bitter, woody and slightly piney hop with a sweet chocolatey, toasty finish. Not sure how this beer escaped my attention before, but it’s got my attention now.

650mL bottle, pours a dark brown / black with a reddish tinge and small tan head. Chocolatey, roasted malt and some toasted nuts on the nose with little hop presence detectable. Flavour brings out the hops more noticeably, beginning with some toasted nuts roasted malt, espresso, some burnt notes, burnt brown sugar and bitter chocolate, ending with some bitter citrus hops and burnt notes. Nicely balanced with a medium-to-full body and an astringent finish. Very solid offering from Tree.
