Pours a nice red color with good 1 1/2 finger head and retention.
Smell is slightly piney and I get a distinct peppermint and black currant aroma.
Taste is of moderate caramel sweetness with big bitterness. The oak comes through and the hop flavor and aroma are really interesting. I'm curious to know what type of hop is used because the black currant flavor really comes through also. I took points because it doesn't remind me of a typial ipa hop.
Mouthfeel has adequate body and nice crispness.
Interesting IPA only moderately hot.

have a few of these in the cellar, time to break one out and see what's what...
2 fingers of snowy white head, sticky sticky sticky, this one leaves a bread crumb trail all the way down leaving no doubt where it has been, ample carbonation keeps the head well fed, lovely microbubble sheets roll around, nicely done, this is one good lookin' brewski
citrus and wood... who would have guessed? your first instinct is hops but the wood is definitely toning it down and adding something, there is a mellow booziness throughout, old orange rind, the nose is interesting but I don't love it, the hop florals kind of smelling like termite wood.
strange.. the flavor is of ashen wood with some bitterness, it is exceptionally smooth mouth wise but the flavor is throwing me a bit, some dark honey notes, there is just something off I can't quite place my finger on, perhaps this sat too long (bottled 7/2009).
this has lost it's kick imo, without a more assertive hop profile this kind of tastes like soaked wood, too bad, the look and feel of the brew is excellent.
