I received this beer as part of a beer swap. Not being familiar with much of Oaken Barrel's work, I did not have high expectations.
The IPA poured a copper color with a white head. The beer left lacing in the glass and showed measured retention. Hello IPA! A balance aroma of mildly fruity hoppiness enticed the senses. The initial taste was a citrus fruit explosion. Grapefruit, pineapple, and a hint of peach gave a pleasant fruit taste. The hops, which were not overly burdensome, were mild yet resiny. The beer becomes progressively more bitter with each sip. In the aftertaste, the bitterness continues with Earthy notes becoming more detectable. The mouthfeel was just thick enough to allow the taste to linger before being brushed away by a mild level of carbonation.
Overall, this is a well-balance and enjoyable IPA. I would love to try this one fresh on-tap.

This is one of my go to IPA's--in fact I keep a keg of this in my kegerator on a regular basis.
Appearance - Lovely dark orange color-a thing of beauty. Lacing throughout is very intricate.
Smell - Initial aroma is not overpowering, but the citrusy hops are evident throughout.
Taste - This is not a monster hop bomb, but the bitter flavors are well balanced. For 7.5%, it hides the alccohol well and drinking several of these in one sitting can be quite easy.
Mouthfeel - Starts off thick and rich, but finishes with a citrusy tartness. Delicious from the start to the end of the glass.
Drinkability: This is a very drinkable IPA, which is why I keep bringing it back to the kegerator. Usually like to rotate all the different IPA's, but this has become a constant companion. Great value when compared to the other great IPA's out there. Be sure and check it out if you are in the area.

A very nice IPA. Head is a little weak. Color is medium copper. Flavors of light citrus, strong piney flavor, good malt background. It's a satisfying IPA - a nice find in the midwest. But then, as one goes east, braumeisters seem to have a more sensible attitude about hopping.
