A: Poured briskly into a room-temperature weizen glass, Oak-Aged IPA put forth about a half-fnger of bone white head, quickly dying down to almost nothing. Nice lacing with solid retention on the glass. Color is cloudy copper. Great look, all in all.
S: A rich hoppy presence hits immediately with tones of vanilla, toffee, mandarin orange and dank wood. Very inviting and intriguing smell!
T: I get fruity, resinous hops up front with more of that vanilla and woodiness to balance out the experience in the finish. I wouldn't mind a a tad more malt in the equation, but this is pleasantly balanced and subtle overall.
M: Great mouthfeel. Very low carbonation which goes down smooth and finishes dry like most solid IPAs.
O: Round Barn's Oak-Aged IPA is a pleasant experience. Nothing blows you away, but the whole package is superbly balanced. You can tell that these guys have years of experience doing what they do. They're not out to change the world of beer- they're simply carving out their own, elegant niche in a crowded world of American IPAs.
