4/5 rDev -5%
I had this on a recent trip to Orlando at the World of Beer, which is a very good place. The beer was recommended to me by the bartender and it was good. Not great but very good. The combination of cask conditioning with the oak and other IPA characteristics made for an interesting beer.
Appearance was a dark hazy orange with a surprising amount of carbonation, especially considering that it was on cask.
Aroma was a great combination of hops, maltiness and oak.
Flavor was also quite complex featuring all the qualities that went into making the beer.
Overall a good beer that I would recommend to anyone who can find it.

12oz Bottle from Rollin Oats Market Tampa FL for 3$
Appearance - Hazy copper with an average size fizzy off-white coloured head. It's too hazy to make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 3 minutes.
Smell - Hops, malts, caramel/butterscotch, pineapple
Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel/butterscotch, malts, and hops. There is also some grapefruit and some pineapple mixed with a hint of vanilla and oak. It ends with a malty sweet and slight bitter aftertaste.
Overall – Couldn't find a date on my bottle, but it didn't have as much of an Oak aspect as I was expecting. Still a very good beer that has a lot of interesting flavours going on. I tried their Cedar aged version as well, and the wood was very prominent with that one.
