4.43/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: golden amber, perhaps slightly less than clear; ivory head a few fingers high; crept down to a floating coaster; some lacing left behind

S: sweet apple orchard, bitter, piney hops; caramel and resin

T: rich and sweet wheat bread dough, caramel and honey-sweet malts; orchard fruit and citrus; bitter hop resinous bite; back to sweet wet close... chewy malt.

M: medium-to-full bodied, ample carbonation brisk above a dense palate crunching hop and sugar barrage; lighter, airy wood notes dry the finish.

O: look, it's a barrel-aged DIPA - exactly what you're expecting - sweet and dense malt and abv, but "regal-ized" through the use of oak-barrel-aging.

4.15/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a pint glass

A) Dark amber color, clear and had a two finger head that dissipated almost immediately and left a nice lacing.

S)Earthy hop character, grapefruit and then the oak. Didn't smell any alcohol. Maple too

T) Sweet malt, definitely taste cara-pilsner in this guy, again earthy pine hops then grapefruit, but oak takes over the flavor profile.

M) medium carbonation, thick almost syrup like going down the pipe.

O) Very good oak aged IPA, not a bad price for a bomber. Nice change up from Two Bro's heavier Handed or Resistance.
