4.5/5 rDev +10.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Copper/amber body, crystal clear. Slightly off white head, thin film stays around.
S: Oak with vanilla notes, tropical fruit, sugary sweet malts. Smells like the sea, salty, clean.
T/M: Yummy:) Fluffy vanilla frosting on a graham cracker made of oak. Hint of tropical nature, like coconut. No boozy alcohol presence at all. Warm and inviting mouth feel with a great balance of full frontal flavor with a smooth oak backbone.
O: Not many oak IPAs compare to this beast. One to experience and savor. A must try for any avid IPA fan.
Serving type: on-tap

This ale pours a deep copper color with a thick off white head which leads to a thin cream lacing throughout the pour. The aromas are sweet and malty; not what I'd expect from an imperial ipa. There are notes of hops but they are subtle. Lots of caramel and a little vanilla on the nose. The flavor is deep and rich, with hops up front followed by a sweet malty taste. Alot of oak and vanilla on the finish. The taste is rich and satisfying but subtle for an ipa. This is a pretty awesome beer just hard to view as an imperial ipa due to its sweetness and lack of hops. Not what I expected but damn good none the less. Can't wait to try the unaged version of this one.
