A clear, but dark amber and copper in color with a gorgeous, very persistent, inch-high khaki colored head. I even remarked how pretty this beer was in the glass when it was delivered to me. Leaves messy, irregular spiderwebs and lines of lace down the glass. A gorgeous, sticky IPA.
The aroma is intensely oak-forward along with sweet, sharp caramel notes, and some pine needles/sap. It doesn't resemble an IPA, as the combination of the oak and malt bill is dominant. It's simple, powerful, and not particularly pleasant, especially given the known style.
Unfortunately, the flavor is just as bad as the aroma, if not worse. This is by far the oakiest beer I've ever tasted, and the pine needle flavors and big combination of sweet malt character doesn't help. Moderate hop bitterness doesn't make this any more drinkable.
Medium bodied with crisp, high carbonation.
I couldn't drink this one. Had maybe 4 ounces before pushing it away and ordering a Sculpin.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz Bottle received in trade with cfrancis - thanks!
Appearance - Copper colour with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing on the sides of the glass. The head lasted for 2-3 minutes before it began to dissipate.
Smell - Malts, caramel, hops
Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel and malts mixed with light hops. There is also a but of a wood and vanilla.
Overall - This was bottled in the summer, so perhaps not the best example. Still a decent beer that I will try again.
