Great example of what a good beer a DIPA can be on wood. Easily as good as Burton Baton.

Served in a 10oz-12oz snifter from the source.

This beer was just clean...much better than the Hercules. Grapefruit, fresh cut grass, the wood was there but not at all overpowering. The oak just added depth. There was a small amount of booziness detected, as one would expect with a 10% wood aged beer. NOT overly malty. Horray! To my pleasant surprise.

Was glad I was able to try this one visiting Denver for the first time.

Serving type: on-tap

Striking reddish-orange that pales at light. The thick tan head is resilient. Smells of citrus, floral hops, caramel, yeast and some cotton candy for good measure. Has a light fruity middle wrapped in resinous hops. Oak, vanilla and cardamom come into play. Pure medium bodies with crisp edges and well-concealed alcohol. Smooth with a near perfect build.

Served at room temperature into a snifter.

A: Golden brown. Quite clear with a white head that resides quite fast. Some lacing on the sides of the glass. Doesn´t look very carbonated, no apparent bubbles.

S: Candyapple, syrup, alcohol and chocolate. Also some woodiness.

T: Wood, syrup, almond and with a vague aftertaste. Some vanilla in there as well.

M: Thick body and low in carbonation. Dry to the palate.

O: I can down a bottle but then it´s enough. It gets a bit dry and I feel that somethings missing to get the right balance to this one.
Quite average for a craft beer is the overall impression, but still worth a try.
