Popped the cap off the bomber and immediately smelled oaked barreling. A good sign...hehe...The appearance looks like Stone Pale Ale, a little darker hue, head is tall at first, but doesn't last too long. Probably about 5 minutes max. The smell is awesome. Great oaked characteristics and caramel backgrounds with awesome spice hints. The taste is just the same. It's like a carbonated, oaked version of Stone's pale ale. Very, very tasty! The mouthfeel is heavy and perfectly carbonated in my opinion. The drinkability you ask? I could drink this all day! A very fine offering that I hope gets to a wider market soon! One of my new favorite American beers. Leads me to wonder what an Oaked Arrogant Bastard might taste like...

Immediate rose, honeysuckle, and toast, followed by pleasant tartness, medium toasted bread, oak-derived vanillin, and dry floral hops. Esters are immediate and clear, but never overpowering, while caramel malts just tickle your tongue. Such a welcome respite from the onslaught of American Pale Ales! Finish is an aromatic maltiness any Brit expatriate would appreciate. Color is dark straw and brilliant clear. Body is medium to light, with oak esters and tannins providing a bit of balance to the malt-heavy brew. This beer is underestimated by hop-addled West-Coasters. Try DBA first, in the afternoon, in a garden, with the sun setting. Think on your wife, your loved ones. Think on your life. Amazing!
