Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Cigar City snifter. Bottle dated: AUG1011
A: Poured fairly vigorously which created about 2 fingers worth of an off white, almost buttery colored head. Pours a deep orange, burnt amber color. Head stuck around for a few minutes, but reduces to some spotty patches of foam, leaving behind some small lacing.
S: Nose is filled immediately by oak, but compliments the tropical notes that follow. I'm getting grapefruit, pineapple, and some small citrus as well. Astringency is present, but is balanced by some sweet malts.
T: Taste is oak forward, just as in the nose. Then, pine notes follow and just as they started retreat to the dominant oak. Good caramel malts play a nice role as well.
M: Medium bodied; The oak really coats the palate, light malty breadiness also helps. Carbonation was a bit low for me, it would have helped in refreshing my palate. Overall a great beer, but the only down point was the mouth feel for me.

Can served at paradise by the slice.
Poured into a glass, it has a burnt orange color body with a small head. The aroma has a pine, citrus hints to it. The taste is oak and vanilla up front with piney hoppy ness to it. Also has a sweetness to it.
The mouthfeel is smooth and overall it is a great beer.
