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.

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.

Tried this beer during a visit to the Oaken Barrel. Pours a light amber color with a moderate head and decent lacing and leaves a little lacing on the glass. The aroma has a little caramel, and some pine and grapefruit hints. The taste was a good push of malt with good tones of hops towards the back end. It is a nice hybrid between a true English IPA and its Western counterparts. The mouthfeel is medium to full with subtle carbonation. Very good beer.

On tap at the JW Marriott in Indianapolis.

Served in a shaker pint, the beer is dark copper with a skim of off-white head. Sheets of lacing as you work your way through the beer.

It has an aroma of pine and caramel malts. It is an old school inviting smell.

Nicely bitter, some pine based bitterness some semi sweet malts for balance. I liked how the bitterness becomes more concentrated mid glass.

It is slightly oily and a bit mouth coating.

All-in-all, a solid ipa that hits the right notes for me.
