Pours a dark copper with an off-white head that never quite goes away. Good lacing down the glass as well.

Smells of sweet oakey vanilla. A little earthiness and some fruity hop character as well. Smells sweet, but not overly so.

Strong forward presence of oak and vanilla with a little malty sweetness rounded out by bitter piney resinous hops. Finishes a bit wet with lingering bitterness and vanilla.

A little bit sticky and good carbonation.

Been waiting to crack this one open for a bit as I loved the 16th Ann. It didn't disappoint. I hate the Rumble IPA, but this one is great. Lots of good vanilla presence and a good marriage of hops and malt. A very good DIPA.

3.94/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a deep, rich copper colored body beneath the rocky off-white head which is slow to dissolve leaving a dense, sticky lacing in its wake.

The aroma offers a unique blend of earthy hops, sweet caramel and Munich malt, vanilla, and wood notes. I'm sure the two years this beer has on contributes to what the senses detect.

This is quite tasty and two years after the fact the generous malty backbone of caramel and breads malts are a bit more pronounced than the earthy hops. There is a sweetness of dark fruits as well at this point and generous woodnotes and vanilla.

This is a big chewy beer with a dry woody finish and medium carbonation amidst the massive body.

This is a good wood aged DIPA with great elements of hops, malt, and wood notes all well balanced. The woody aspects do not dominate this beer which is appreciated.
