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.

Served on tap

This IPA pours a very hazy orange golden color. The beer isn't very bold on the nose. The flavor caught me off guard. There is a lot of oak character in this beer, a strong woody flavor. There is a nice hop profile of fresh juicy citrus like orange and mango but it isn't too bold. This is more of a balanced IPA. The malts are bready and mostly pale malts if I were to guess. A solid IPA, I prefer their Titan but not a bad choice.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12oz bottle in pint glass.

Appearance-pours a very cloudy orange. 3

Aroma-orange, little grapefruit, doesn't smell to hoppy,slight lemon peel. 3.25

Taste-bitter hops with citrus, you get the sourness of grapefruit, there is some small malt notes. 3

Feel-medium body, alcohol comes in then leaves you with a bitter feel. 2.75

Overall-this would be better enjoyed with food. I could see drinking this eating steak or some other beef on a summer day. I wouldn't buy it again, but wouldn't think twice if someone else offered it to me. 3

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

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.
