Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BradLikesBrew on 08-07-2010

Brewed with heavy handed additions of Pacific Northwest hops, this beer is gently aged on French and American oak resulting in a wonderful balance of bitterness, caramel sweetness, vanilla, and undertones of pine and citrus.

Had this beer at Rose Alley Ale House. Served in a Belgian tulip glass, cool. Off-white head and an amber body. Vanilla and pine smell. Tastes like vanilla ice cream with a resin pine finish. Smooth with medium carbonation. Nice but not overly a double.

A - The body of the beer was a cloudy, orange-copper...a one finger, creamy, off white head formed...although there was some nice carbonation, the head didn't last long...there was some decent lacing left behind though

S - Piney hops are very present and provide a slight bitterness to the nose...sweet caramel...oak is also present, but it's coming off in a rather weird aroma

T - There is a nice balance at first sip...the oak is very subtle, but you can pick up on its nuances...there is a nice sweetness level in the middle of the beer...caramel and soft vanilla...the hops bring themselves to the finish...they cut right through the sweetness and show their bitterness...that bitterness lingers

M - Medium bodied...chewy, bitter, but rather watery

O - I love the fact of an oak-aged IPA in a 12 oz. bottle...Great Divide shows a nice effort here, but the oak comes across a little strange in the nose and the mouthfeel was knocked down a bit...I'd have more if it was offered, but I'm not going to go out of my way for one

"Oak Aged India Pale Ale"... I had to buy this.

the smell of the bottle, chestnut and cherries along with the expected hops, very different, i guess that's the oak barrells. easy pour, the head is afraid of heights though, it's quick to coil away but decides to pose halfway down. the beer is a nice reddish brown color, quite unique, kind of like a brazil nut. HUGE smell. again, it has a nutty aroma, the oak is present, big breads. Something else familiar I can't quite put my hands on.

Taste... this is one of the most unique IPA's i've ever had. It's nutty with the oak barrel sting, its strong in hops and alcohol, it sticks to the lips. It also has a little cherry quality, it's really nice.

Try this beer if you are in the mood for an IPA but want something really unique. It delivers with the oak barrel aging and the hops.
