The ale appears dark orange with a small off-white head.
Aromas of citrus fruit, caramel malt, bread like malt and grassy hops fill my nose as I smell the beer. I also get a mild floral hop nose to the beer.
It tastes of citrus like hops with a grassy undertone. there is a solid malt background that is a mix of sweet caramel malt and dry bread-like malt. the malt provide the backbone for a strong bitter hop bite. a very well-balanced and tasty brew.
there is a solid medium bodied mouthfeel to the beer.
Overall a somewhat heavy full-bodied Double IPA. though it has a nice malt body it is still quite bitter and nice. Another great beer from Oakshire.
Serving type: on-tap

Drinks a lot like Founders Devil Dancer. Incredible. Beautiful brown poor in a 6 oz. snifter with a finger of off white head. The aroma is surprisingly tame (maybe just too cold). As it warms, the bubblegum/juicy-fruit gum aroma gets enveloped by citrus and floral hop bitterness.
Triple IPA, yes, this drinks like an American style barley wine barley wine. Listed at 112 IBU, the caro-syrup sweetness pushes the complex hop bitterness to a higher plane of flavor sensation. Butter-caramel and plum/raisin in the backend. Very mild fruity alcohol on the breath.
