Sampled from 0.75 L bottle @Papsoe’s. Hazy orangey gold. Low blond head. Initial aroma is boozy and yeasty, offset by some fine fruit and caramel notes. Hot and creamy in the mouth. Sweet-flavored and caramelly, with strong barrel notes and potent fruity bitterness underneath. Not very IPA-ish, yet a very nice and tasty beverage. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2012

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 Bottle… WPB Town Hall Meeting 2012… Hazy golden ale with a small, wispy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is a decadent, earthy mélange of coconut, caramel, white wine and raw American oak. Medium-bodied and raspy with prickly carbonation. The moderately bitter flavor is boozy, hot, acrid and a touch acidic. Finishes much the same – boozy-hot, astringent, and then dry. Kudos to landhoney and newcigarz for making this meeting possible! deyholla (11705) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2012

Flavor has lots of coconut and vanilla with more of an earthy grass note and only a hint of pine. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by Derek. Thanks, bud! Pours a rich well hazed amber brown pour, touches of orange amber glow on the edges and body. A frothy offwhite head dies to a good layer, laces ok. Sticks around fairly well. Aromas are a firm barrel presence, with coconut and oak, gentle spirit, a richer vanilla influx. Touches of toffee, more coconut, touches of dry florals, mellow sweet sticky malts. Initial is medium bodied offering some firm spirit, bourbon, and vanilla. Shaved and toasted coconut, barrel presence, oak, and toffee. Toasty malts, biscuits, and more vanilla. Touches of dry deadened hops. More barrel, sweeter malts, good barrel flavor. Richer vanilla, oak, toasted coconut really dominate overall. Priviledge to try, the barrel really brings some assertive flavors to the fold. Nothing offensive and a solid example of displaying barrel in a beer for sure. dmac (6314) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Bottle acquired via trade shared at Campground Brewdown. Poured an orange amber body with a full large foamy off white head. Aroma of wooden barrel, light whiskey/bourbon, sweet vanilla, cognac, toffee and molasses. Fuller body with slight heat towards the end, softer carbonation, chewy mouthfeel and a dry finish. Flavor isn’t quite as good as the aroma with notes of grains, citrus rind, wood, whiskey and dark rum cake. Started off good but drops off. humlelala (1375) - DENMARK - JUL 15, 2012
(sample at Papsø’s; courtesy of steasy66) Pours a clear amber with white head and lace. Aroma is oak. Taste is malty nuts and oak. Texture is oily, full body, medium carbonation and a warming finish. Too oaky for my taste.
