2014 Vintage

The bottle pours with an amber/copper color, roughly 2 finger, off-whtie head that slowly fades, but never disappears.

Smell is rather faint with citrus and caramel sweetness taking center stage. Maybe hints of oak as the beer warms.

Taste follows the nose with a good balance between the aforementioned citrus and caramel, although the caramel sweetness begins to take the lead as the beer warms. Faint hints of oak characteristics show up late on the tongue after drinking.

Mouthfeel is medium from the sweetness, cut slightly by the citrus bitterness. Still a pretty crisp beer.

Overall, I was expecting a little bit more oak from an oak aged beer, not just trace amounts as it warmed. The beer itself was good, though maybe a bit sweet for an IPA.
