"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.

Pours clear copper with head and lacing that lasts.
Oaky, hoppy nose. A great combination.
Hop bittnerness with an oaky sweetness. Hops again on the back end. Really enjoy the big wood on this.
Carbonation spot on. Medium bodied. A fun take on an IPA

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

A - An orange/amber color, not much head or sticky lace.

S - Oak and piny hops

T - Citrusy and piny hops. The oak does not come through very strongly, at least not like a Cigar City beer.

M - Medium to light body

O - A good beer, but as far as an oak aged beer, I have been spoiled by others.

A: poured a brownish orange in color with yellow highlights and a thin head that left a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: no oaky aroma was present on the nose but did have some booze, citrus, piney, and mild vinegar notes.

T: a little oaky character came through on the taste alngside mild hops, citrus, vinegar, and booze notes but had mango accents.

M: the brew was light to medium in body with a moderate amount of carbonation which had a oaky, mild hoppy piney, and sweet sticky finish.

D: it actually drank really good but wished there was more oaky flavor on the taste.
