3.7/5 rDev -11.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
A: Tea-like brown, dark-amber color. Nice light brown head forms and hangs on for a while.
S: Big time bitter grapefruit rind aroma.
T: Again, just a bombardment of bitter grapefruit. Even as this warms up I'm not picking up anything new. I would never guess this was oak aged, and would almost certainly call this an IPA in a blind tasting. Really needs more malt flavor.
M: Medium-lightish body and well carbonated.
O: I'm really surprised at this one. Drinks and tastes like an IPA. Completely lacks the complexity of the regular bastard and the oak aging is lost on me. Still a good beer, but I'll take other things for the money.
