One thing is for sure, HUB has a real knack when it comes to making well hopped beers. Hopefully, they will make this beer more then just once, as it's absolutely delicious.

The beer pours a typical light peachy IPA color, with very good, creamy head and excellent lacing. On the nose one again gets the archtypical blast of orange citrus and pine. This a huge, well hopped IPA, with nuances of vanilla from the wood. On the palate this beer is delicious. What I wouldn't give to be able to drink this all the time. The beer almost tastes like a blend of the HUB red and IPA, but with a bit more hops I think. There is a lot of citrus from the dry hops on the palate, but the barrel aging gives the beer a very soft, light creamy mouthfeel that is terrific. I don't know the abv., but would guess it's in the 7% or 8% range. Enough for you to konw it's there, but not so much that it knocks you off your feet. However, this beer carries its alcohol very well, with a long finish that just begs for another sip. Incredibly drinkable. This would be my IPA of choice through the holidays were it only available on a regular basis (perhaps it will be).

An outstanding effort from the folks at HUB.
