Served from a 750ml C&C bottle into a Woodcock Brothers Imperial Pint. 2013 release, but no date.
Appearance- Huge 4 finger head (and I didn't pour wildly). Clear copper with tons of bubbles.
Smell-Boozy malts up front, light wood, light hops. Smells very malty, hopefully it's not.
Taste- Initially when I first took a sip, I thought it was a booze bomb, but the second sip was fine. Big hop bitterness, medium caramel malt sweetness, I don't get any wood though- at all. I wan't less malts and more wood.
Mouthfeel- Medium body, relatively viscous, not as carbonated as it looks.
Overall- I think the Poplar is akin to the "Beechwood Aging" that Bud does, whereas it may exist, but you certainly can't taste it. Solid enough IIPA though.
