Plenty of hops, as well as a good bourbon taste. Pretty much what you’d expect from Southern Tier. gschrade (1099) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - JAN 27, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours orangish with a white head. Taste strong, pine, sweet. I thought this was so so. I would skip this and stay with the Un'earthly that is not oak aged.

Dark pour from 22oz bottle at monkey paw. Dark orange with whey head. Bitter and fruity taste. Whiskey, vanilla, citrus, grapefruit notes. Very good Christpuncher (3251) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2013
A very fruity ipa with a nice whiskey infused finished. Not much I a smell and pours a reddish yellow in color.

Terribly unbalanced. The oak just takes over, leaving the aromatic qualities of the hop lost in the vine. Malt forward, very boozy, and cloudy in the glass. Found it tremendously inferior to their regular 2x IPA, and most of their other stuff, which is generally of a very high caliber.

Bottle pour. This oaked DIPA by #southerntier is awesome! It’s got a very sweet and clean flavor to it with a robust malt bill. The aroma is ripe with oak scents! esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2013
On tap at Stubbys. Cara-amber with a slowly evaporating tan head. Aroma of oak, vanilla, caramel, peaches, fruit, citrus and alcohol. Taste is big with booze, fruits, citrus, oak, light vanilla and a high alpha acid finish. Nice. AWISLguy (3327) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bomber from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours a very clear orange with a white head leaving many spots of lace. Aroma has heavy vanilla and citrus, with pine and toffee. Taste is of sweet vanilla, oranges, spicy pine, a nice woody backbone and a very solid caramel malt base. A terrific balanced blend. A bit alcoholly. Medium to full bodied and dry, but slightly syrupy. Finishes bittersweet with a good blend of the two, and spicy earthy dry. The original was over fruity and sticky, and the oak version mellows that while actually adding components and -- never thought would be said about an oaked IPA -- is superior to the original. northropfrye (3690) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
Nice bear st jl beers Moorhead. Hops and oak a solid combination. Thanks Steve Fehr if steinbach manitoba fir driving. cards04 (2917) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
This is awesome. Great vanilla and hop aromas and flavors. I wish more breweries would age IPAs in barrels. The sweet vanilla and oak compliment the hops nicely.
