3.65/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle dated March 21st, 2012. A little over a month old.

A: A very dark amber, almost ruby red pour. Clear with a good sized off-white head. Head fades slowly leaving thick lacing on the glass.

S: Pretty subtle aroma. Mainly of oak. Mild caramel. Hints of citrus and pine and resin but mostly overpowered.

T: Again, quite oaky up front. Big resin and pine hops (or is it just resin from the oak?), with just a bit of citrus. Strong caramel malt is present throughout as well. Drying oak and resin flavors in the finish and aftertaste. Once it warms the oak is even more prominent, it's like drinking wood (insert joke here).

M: Almost syrupy. Especially once it warms. A bit much for a DIPA.

O: A decent beer. The oak overpowers everything so it really loses a lot of IPA character. It becomes a thick oak and caramel syrup. Like an oak aged barleywine. Not bad but hardly your typical DIPA.
