Tmoney99 (13760) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2012
Draft sample at IBGWF 12. Poured hazy copper with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate floral, sour citrus and wood aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy smooth bitter flavor with a medium to heavy bitter woody finish of moderate to long duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

shrubber85 (10885) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2013

phaleslu (9572) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Draft sample at Microfest 2012. Pours a cloudy amber color with a fairly large eggshell white head. Very oaky all the way through, with vanilla, floral and citrusy hops, and resin. Bitter on the palate. Medium-bodied, with an oaky, bitter mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Good oaked DIPA, and the oak really takes over.

b3shine (8247) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks good; a very slightly hazy golden orange with white lacing. Smells solid; a well-balanced hop profile with notes of oak and a touch of sweetness. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. A little maltier though. Still, enjoyable.

vyvvy (5971) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Sampled at STL Microfest 2012 - Pours golden / bronze with a clear off-white head. The aroma has a ton of oak, mild caramel, toasted malt, mild hops - low hops for an IIPA. Medium / full body with semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts sweet and has lots of oak, alcohol and what was on the aroma. The finish is quite warm. Okay, but I prefer the non-oaked version.

Pencil shaving nose. Cloudy amber, fine floaties, medium head. Orange peel, wood, husks. Medium body, easy carbonation.

patrick767 (4014) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 24, 2014
sampled at Mad Anthonys Oktobeerfest - The oak dominates the aroma of this hazy orange brew. The flavor is also heavy on the oak. Bitterness is high though not especially high for the style. I dont know if Ive ever said the wood is overdone in a beer, but it might be here. Its still good. I just think it could be great with a little more hops character and less wood.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 12, 2013
On tap at GTMW 2013. Amber with a creamy tan lasting crown. Aroma is floral and oaky with some caramel and citrus underneath. Taste of oak, citrus, vanilla with a moderate bitter ending.
