4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33cl bottle served in a tulip. Appearance: Pours a dark golden brown with a large, fine, frothy beige head. Aroma: spruce, hops, cinnamon, hints of candy. Palate: thick bodied, creamy, slight film left in the mouth, long nice finish. Definitely noticing the 90 here. Taste: Slightly sweet, hints of bitterness in the finish. More candy than spruce, given the aroma. Really nice.
Great blend of 60 minute IPA and ale. Deep and rich but hoppy citrus from the IPA. Another classic from Dogfish Head.

Bottle. Pours cloudy dark orange with small foamy off-white head, woodsy aroma, sweetish woodsy taste with medium bitterness following up, alcohol undertones, thin body, long bitter finish with slight alcohol aftertaste. Tastes more like a triple ale than an IPA. ads135 (4933) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 10, 2017
Hazy amber color. Some really nice wood and a teentsy bit of vanilla. Mostly grassy hops, some light citrus and a dense malt backbone. Very pleasant. Picked up a bottle in 2017 at On the Rocks in Lawrence. beern (177) - Alabama, USA - SEP 1, 2017
Pours a light whiskey color with a 3-finger off white head with a hint of oak and malt in the nose. Tastes of moderately bitter hops with a semi sweet malt backbone with a hint of astringent oak. It's medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. It has a warming candi sugar finish. Very little alcohol in the taste. Very complex and very good.

A dense off-white head on an amber/orange body. Nose features citrus hops, brown sugar, apricots and fruit zest. A well blended and crafted double. Citrus and tropical fruit, melon, toffee, wood, dark berries and a hint of cherries work well together. Used to have a solid whiff of vanilla, but not in this batch.

6 month old bottle. Hazy amber color with a white head and medium lacing. Green pear, grass, slight oak, and pine aromas. Light sweetness finished by a restrained pine aftertaste. Heavier body with a fizzy feel. stef73 (664) - Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2017

2015 BJCP Category: 33A Wood-Aged Beer (base style: 22A Double IPA)
AROMA: Sweet nose with confectionery notes of toffee, caramel. Slight sherry oxidation character is fine. Citrusy/piney hops are present, but do not dominate. Moderate alcohol character. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Murky copper hue; very hazy body. Mammoth off-white frothy head retains and laces well. 3/3
FLAVOR: Moderately-sweet palette overall with English-style confectionery notes of toffee. Wood imparts slight vanilla and nutty flavors. Bitterness is strong, dank. Hop flavor akin to resin or citrus concentrate. Minor oxidation creates for sherry-like taste. Alcohol is quite prominent as it finishes with warming sensation. 14/20
MOUTHFEEL: Full-bodied with medium-low carbonation. Smooth, soft texture with noticeable alcohol warmth (not surprising consider it’s 10% ABV). 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Interesting, impressive hybridization of styles. May be a little too big, though. 7/10
TOTAL SCORE: 35/50
