Opaque orange in appearance, with medium white head and some lacing. Very citrusy in the nose, mostly orange, fresh hops, and a slight hint of spices. Citrus up front in flavor, followed by pale malt. Oak really hits with bitterness, strong and lingering. The oak overtakes the alcohol flavor/burn. The mouth feel is middling and the carbonation fits the flavor.
This beer = hops and OAK. I'm a bit surprised by the overpowering oak flavor in this beer, as the Bruery knows how to age a beer in barrels. Maybe they wanted a strong oak flavor. If so, they achieved it, and I'm not as big a fan as the brewmaster. That said, it's interesting and I'd still have it again, but I wouldn't get too excited. The Bruery has made better.
