S- was proper with citrus aromas like grapefruit and mandarin acompanied by a slight oak note the was hidden in the background .

T- the flavor notes were almost on point beautiful malt backbone. nice citrus hops but a bit to much on the oak .

I have nothing to recommend this beer to any drinker. I also have nothing to turn folks away. There were odd flavors that seemed to reflect extract or poor quality/old ingredients that left me wanting. I know the great guys at Great Divide dont take shortcuts and usually produce amazing products but this beer is the average one among outstanding brews. Will not buy this one again. Sorry guys, try again.

Aroma is kinda' a stale caramelized wood (not specifically oak - certainly not vanilla) - that may not sound too appealing, but it is interesting and not unpleasant. Not finding much for hops.
Slightly cloudy with amber of orange and brown. Off-white head.
Flavor has similar qualities - is a little more complex and the hops do show. Some in the flavor and certainly on the finish in taste an bitterness, including some lingering. I do enjoy the caramel quality with the woody character.
Prickly, tingly carbonation goes well with this beer. Moderate overall feel. I am filling a bit full rather quickly :0(
Unique and enjoyable

Gift from Drevis. thanks.

A - thin almost whispy cream colored head. Cloudy. Murky almost. Flakes sit suspended like fruit in jello. Crazy murky like plakton. Amber color is typical enough for ipa.

S - fruit. Green strawberries, squash, and of course hops. Oddly not much oak

T - sweet malts and hop. Like orange yogurt sprinkled with green hop buds. Aftertaste is bitter but not ridiculously so.

M - mildly effervescent malty.

D - the oak aspect adds little. And sadly this beer while respectable is mostly unremarkable.

12 oz bottle with a brewed on date of 19 June 2012; served in a Sam Adams lager glass.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a frothy off-white head that has moderate durability.

Momentarily forgetting that this was an oak aged beer, I was surprised by the woody and dank aspects of the nose -- so the wood definitely contributes to the aroma, as well as to the taste.

T: I found this a bit too woody (oak) for my taste, both because this is not my favorite flavor component and because the oak aging seem to mask some of the malt and hop character. Eventually, however, I found a nice long-lasting aftertaste that is woody, somewhat y savory and fruity, and only moderately bitter. The flavor, and especially the oak portion, fared better with a little warming (or adjustment?), but then went the other direction.

M: medium body and near medium carbonation that closer to too high than to too low.

O: an interesting, woodsy IPA variant that is worth a try, particularly if you like oak aging.

A- Poured into a tulip glass, nice light amber color, 1.5 finger soapy off white head that quickley falls to a skim that leaves nice lacing.
S- First thing I get to the nose is pine, a hint of woody spicy oak, and lastly citrus, that of grapefruit.
T- This beer drink like a high gravity IPA but isn't at a modest 7.1%. The first thing I get is grapefruit citrus, followed by pine, a nice mellow hint of oak that gives way to a little vanilla as well. Nice oak but not over oaked as many oaked IPA's can be.
M- Nice carbonation, maybe a little more than I would like to have for this style.
O- So far my favorite offering from Great Divide. Very drinkable, hard to not go bck for a second one. I love that the oak is present and warming but not overwhelming. This is a go to if you are in the market for trying a wood aged IPA.

A: Poured from a bottle into a snifter glass. 2" white head with a caramel hint. Good lacing throughout the drink.Body is a hazy, light tan. Truly a beautiful beer to look at.

S: A strong oak hoppiness with hefty notes of caramel and vanilla.

T: Absolutely delicious, the caramel and vanilla flavours almost make you not notice the hops. But this is an IPA, and the hoppy bitterness cannot be denied. Finishes slightly dry if you can wait long enough before sipping again.

M: A good composition. A tiny bit of a creamy thick feel, but definitely no stout.

O: This beer is fantastic! Absolutely my new favourite IPA! This knocks off Ska Brewery's Modus Hoperandi for my top IPA spot. The caramel and vanilla contrast the bitterness of the hops to perfection! Modus is no small opponent, but Rumble proves they can handle this jungle.
