Had on tap in NYC. Fair head of off white foam. Nice amber red in color, a touch darker than your standard IPA. Picked up a nice touch of vanilla in the aroma, also, some maltiness, not a lot of hop presence. Taste picks up with more Vanilla, caramel, piney hops, and malts. Oak aging is a nice touch on this one. Not the most Hop heavy IPA I've had, but refreshing nonetheless.

12oz bottle poured into a SA Perfect Pint glass. Bottled 8/18/10

A: Cooper pour with lots of visible carbonation. Impressive 2 finger fluffy white head. Thick lacing at the top of the glass

S: Earthy and citrus hops, caramel malt. Notes of vanilla and oak

T: Similar to the smell, but hops weren't as present. Seem to have been really muted by the barrel process. The caramel malt and oakiness really shine here. Not much hop bitterness either

M: Medium bodied, good carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with just a little bitterness from the hops

D: A decent beer, but not much hops for an IPA. I haven't had their regular to compare, but this was lacking something. Easy to drink though, so I'd probably drink it again

Bottle date 6/12.
I thought that an older bottle date for this IPA would possibly degrade the flavor four months later. But I was pleasantly surprised.

The beer poured a beautiful copper color with a two finger head.

Strong aroma of vanilla and oak.

The mouth feel is smooth.

The finish is enhanced by the aroma which remains with warming.
There is an intense complex taste of fruit, oak and vanilla.

This is a winner. Will drink again soon.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a rather lifeless ruby-honey, nearly opaque. No head. spare traces of lacing. The color itself is wonderful, but everything else drags it down.

S: Sweet and yeasty, French vanilla and oak. A little piney scent.

T: Rather sweet up front, caramel and malt. A woody sweetness, kind of sappy when combined with the pine hops.

M: Rather thin, medium carbonation, but kind of creamy.

O/D: I really wanted to like this beer more, but it's just missing something. The hops aren't as big as the malt going on. The oak is present, and not too strong. It's a solid beer, worth a try.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-Pours a semi hazy copper color with a one finger slightly off white head that has fair retention but leaves admirable amounts of sticky lacing.

S-Somewhat understated, but pleasant. A nice mixture of pine and citrus hops, caramel malt, a bit of oakiness and a touch of vanilla. I wish it was more pronounced, though.

T-Really follows the nose with the pine and citrus leading and a bit of sweet malt coming in the middle and back along with hints of oak and vanilla in the finish.

M-A bit juicy leading off, medium body, slightly creamy, with a crisp, biting dry finish.

D-One is enough. A pleasant enough beer, but doesn't make me want another.
