A nice amber brown color. Hazy in appearance. Head is frothy and abundant. A nice balance of sweet and bitter with a very pleasant long finish. Medium body with an almost creamy texture.

Dark golden color with awesome lacing from a small white head. Oak on the nose with a tad of hops. Liked the sweetness and oakiness. The taste lingered a bit.good brew with some body.

Very sweet and vanilla DIPA (almost no bitterness). It was fine stuff, beautiful golden pour with a minuscule head. Aroma of vanilla and hops. Surprised by the big sweetness and lack of bittering hops. Pretty sticky mouthfeel, but still went down nice. Good stuff indeed.

650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a modest white head that lasts a while and leaves some lovely lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel malts and oak with some citrus and earthy notes. Taste is bold citrus and earthy hop bitterness balanced nicely with a malty sweet backbone and underlying oak. Medium to heavy body and adequate carbonation leave a nice sensation on the palate. The high ABV is well hidden and flavors are much better than I can describe. This is an outstanding DIPA.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Oak aging can work, but it didn't here. Pours brownish amber with no head. Strong vanilla and oak nose. Taste follows with very little hop flavor. Oakiness just overpowers everything. A mild almost otherwise flavorless brew. Very sweet and almost no bitterness. Not impressed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ok, Ive had this a few times now, reserving a review to try and get the freshest example (being several thousand miles away from where its brewed) possible. Ive decided that this is way too crystal malt heavy for me. The aroma is very heavy with caramel, toffee, with some welcome notes of pine and oak. The flavor is again laden with caramel, toffee and hints of oak. Very sweet an alcoholic. It definitely has an interesting twist with the oak, but this really isnt my kind of thing. Just Ok.

callmemickey (4531) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Hazy orange body, large white head, decent lacing. Nose is boozy, resinous, and oaky. Not particularly inviting. Flavor is a bit disjointed as the strong presence of oak, combined with a hop profile that is more bitter than flavorful, undermines this beer. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, a bit astringent. Not my thing.

Quack-Duck (9392) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 16, 2012
bottle from Bierkompass. Hazy/cloudy orangey brownish colour, small, but very persistent and creamy off-white head. Aroma of resiny hops. Full-bodied, solid malty base with a fruity background and lots of resiny and citrusy hops with a shy dusty-woody character.

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2012
Pours a medium amber with a off white head. Aroma of vanilla and caramel malt with hints of resin and citrus hops and a touch of bubblegum. Taste is amazing. Sweet malts surrounded by the oak and fruity hops. Awesome balance between the sweet malts and slightly bitter hops. Tons of both. Sweet, vanilla and alcoholy finish.

Glass pint. Dark/burnt orange, like a light brown leather. Smells sweet and of high alcohol. Is sweet and of high alcohol. Can really taste what Im assuming are bourbon barrels. Hops too, kinda lingering and morphing, though always hoppy, in the background while the sweet oaky flavor saunters down your palate. I wanna say sticky.
