Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Naughty 90 Oaked IPA was inspired by ocean bound, oak barreled brews of the 1800’s. Packed with hops on a 90-minute schedule, uniquely malted, then aged on a bed of oak, this IPA delivers a taste that is both innovative and timeless.

Bottle from Joe. Thanks buddy. Pours dark amber cited with a half finger khaki head. Aroma of bready malts, herbal tea, chocolate, hay, oak, but no hop presence here really. The flavor is a big malty malt bomb, some chocolate mixed in there, herbal tea notes, dry finish with a little bitterness but not the IPA hop type of bitterness, oak, a bit of caramel. Rich body, dry finish, medium carbonation. Anything but an IPA really, but not a sweet malty mess either. Sort of a very dry barleywine (not quite the hop presence for an American style barleywine , and a good bit of chocolate like a brown ale). Maybe we can call this a session winter warmer! Pretty good, but definitely not the expected flavors here.

I see the bottle pictures says "Oaked India Pale Ale", but my bottle just says "Oaked Ale" so maybe they aren't marketing this as an IPA anymore. In any case, pleasant beer that I would recommend for fall or winter. Unfortunately I live in Florida so it's hot out.

Pours a beautiful, clear brown with a head that has some nice retention. Love the aroma on this one. Oaky/nutty/toasty/malty with just enough hop character coming through. Drinks super smooth with plenty of nuttiness and a nice smoky quality too. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation, bringing the flavors together wonderfully. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer. Would readily drink it over and over again.
