Beer added by: FreshHawk on 11-15-2011

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.

This is the one... my favorite of the evening. Dark amber colored with some haze. Wood, tobacco, burnt sugar, caramel and molasses. Bitterness is from hops but tastes like char although there are no tannins upfront. This is an extremely complex beer and the beauty of it is that nothing obliterates it... very very good. Filled a growler at the taproom and enjoyed it again. Highly recommended. (394 characters)

Muddy brown in color, with little head; caramel, oak, maybe a little coffee on the nose; oak and caramel dominate the taste, some dark fruit lingers on the palate. I do get alcohol--easy to believe this new bottling is 8.2%. Don't really get any IPA characteristics other than a vague bitterness--tastes more like a BA scotch ale. Something different (for me) and very enjoyable. (382 characters)
